Kitui Report Continued - Sunday Morning

On Sunday morning we headed out to Pastor Harrison Wambua’s church in the small village of Kolonzo, many miles off the paved road.  When we arrived, Pastor was teaching the children Sunday School.  The children sang and worshiped God using only a drum and their voices.  It was wonderful.

We were blessed by the children and Pastor Harrison.  We were impressed with the large attendance and their enthusiasm. 

Don taught on what the Bible teaches about the  Rapture of the Church.  It was a great message and very well received.  After church they served us chicken and rice for lunch, gave us a bag of passion fruit and we returned to Chuluni for the last session of the Discipleship Training.

When class ended we took photos of the participants and visited with them before they all left for their homes.  Our weekend was done: Don had taught 10 hours and preached a sermon; we had given out 33 Bibles and prepared to do it all again Monday and Tuesday in Kitui.

The graduates who truly “made it happen” that weekend were Peter Mbiti, Jossy Mitau and Ambrose Wingi.  These pastors worked together across denominational lines to help all the churches thrive.  This principle of working together is taught in the Bible School in a Briefcase, and the pastors in the Chuluni area certainly learned it well.

Our next post will be about the showing of The Jesus Film.

Thank you for taking time to see what God is doing here in Kenya!

Blessings, Don & Becky Cameron
