The trip for Vivian and I to visit the orphanage and churches in Kenya is still on, but I must say getting the covid test results so close to the time when we begin the flights both there and also on the return are making everything difficult. We are healthy, but it all contingent on what the results are at that time.
Vivian and latched on to this verse for our trip there: "Now may our God and Father himself and our Lord Jesus clear the way for us to come to you" (1 Thessalonians 3:11).
Here is this week's letter from Pastor Joel:
Dear beloved Dad, Mum, Church and Friends,
We praise God when we remember you and all across who are praying for the work of God in Kenya. May God bless you all, we are praying for the trip daily, and your protection from any harm.
