Anticipation, excitement, processing, packing, unpacking, re-packing, packing again and now waiting for the bus to arrive. 3 flights, 2 days, and 7,635 miles from the official beginning of our time in Kenya. It’s hard to believe that in such a short amount of time, we will be heading into the Invest house, and getting ready to head out to our first community. It’ s safe to say that we are all more than excited to see how the Lord works during our time in Kenya. The past week has been a constant unfolding of God’s faithfulness and tremendous support as we have both been refined and immensely blessed. We were so blessed and humbled by the way Camp Highland served our entire team and encouraged us as we prepared for eventual departure for Kenya. Camp Highland consistently proves to be a highlight of Journey and we are blessed by the Kingdom family we have with them.
We have been inundated with food from people all over the community and the neighborhood that was homemade and incredibly decicious. We were blessed with a beautiful cupcake Africa cake. Our Board has played vital roles as they have hosted the welcome party and hosted our interns this week. We have a family who has graciously opened their home for our men and their pool for our down time.
We currently have someone heading to the house to pick us up in the middle of the night to take us to the airport. Journey takes an army and an army is exactly what God has provided. It has been so encouraging to see people who have rallied around us and loved our staff and interns the way they have. We already stand in awe of his faithfulness and we haven’t even landed in Africa yet.
We are blessed by the army that is behind each intern and staff individually who has supported our team with both prayers and financial support. It is amazing to see the body of Christ come together the way they have. Please know you are playing a huge part in the story of making Jesus known in the next generation and our heart as we go out to serve is to be used by God to awaken, disciple, and empower the next generation to know Jesus and to make Him known. That is happening because of people like you partnering with us as we join in God’s story. Thank you.
