And then they were off! Russell, Abbey, Ben & Siobhan, Kylie and Luana. Off to Lesvos. It was good to see the whole team at the airport and for us to be able to pray for them as they ventured off. Let us continue to pray for them while they are away (you don't have to stop praying when they get back though). Abbey will join us in Nairobi on the 1st of January.
We are looking forward to our time in Kenya. At this stage the team we are taking are, Gillian, Ariana and I, Abbey, Rodney, Jesse, David and Logan. It is a good little team and we are all preparing for our time over there. To be honest, no matter how much we prepare, we won't know exactly what we will be doing until we get there. We will though have some particular ministries that we can prepare for. We will take one or two Sunday School lessons for between 200 and 600 kids. The ladies will meet with Moms' in Prayer and the men will meet with the Mens' Bible Study. We will meet with the youth Bible study and be part of a youth forum. We will speak at different places and will have some waiata prepared as well. There will be time spent at the Children's Centre where we will do some things down there; we hope to be able to take some sort of koha there from MWCC. We will reconnect with friends there and encourage and be encouraged. We leave 7.15am on December 31st and return at 12.55am January 22nd. Pray for us as we prepare and as we minister there.
