A big “thank you” goes to Melissa Gross for inviting me (Becky) to speak at the ladies retreat October 12th and 13th at Faith Fellowship in Lucas, TX and arranging for Don to preach there on October 14th. We were so warmly received and very encouraged.
After Don spoke I was approached by the adult leader for the Stars (the older girls class that meets on Wednesday night). The leader explained that her girls were studying Africa this month and would love to hear from a missionary. Of course I said yes! She was so excited and invited the others girl classes to join hers. When the leader of the boys program, Royal Rangers, heard I was coming they wanted Don to speak to the boys. So Wednesday night we were privileged to share Kenya with over 25 school age children plus adults.

We gave the children bracelets made by children in Pastor Vincent’s church in Kawaida, Kenya. They were a great hit with everyone. The Kenyan children had enclosed a Bible verse with each bracelet.
I was given cash from the girls in the Stars class to buy a Bible for someone in Kenya. In Don’s class a young boy gave him money from his pocket and said, “Buy someone a Bible”. It was so encouraging to know that these children are already investing their time and money to bless others and further the Gospel.
Before the end of class Don asked the boys to gather around him and pray for him and the people of Kenya. He was so touched as he heard the voices of the children praying for our work and the people in Kenya.
We want to thank Pastor Luke Crain for allowing us to speak to his church and the children. We honor him and his loving and generous congregation. Our prayer is that God will bless them and their children as they follow after Christ.
I plan to post updates on some of the projects we did in Kenya before we left. I’m sorry for the delay! Hopefully being settled down here at the farm house I will get more reports out!
In His service,
Becky & Don Cameron
