East Africa: Hurry Up and Wait

Have you ever rushed around to get someplace only to have to wait? Well that is what we did on our way to Kenya. We had several delays and our luggage came the day after our bodies but all is good. The peace and patience only God can give reigned in all our actions. Our ministry started with a bang today. We painted a storage room & kitchen at First Love Orphanage, then tutored the kids when they got home from school. We also toured the Baraka sewing center that is on the First Love campus. The sewing center is an oasis for women from the slums to learn to sew & sell what they produce. We are tired yet content. Luke 6:45 a "The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good."
