Keroka – Part 1

Karen’s 3rd week was supposed to be spent with a man named Gibson, with whom she has been working for over a year. He and his dedicated Adventist group in Keroka, Kenya, are understanding the Cleansing Message. She preaches every Sabbath morning from her home in West Virginia, using Zoom and Gibson translates.

A Taxi Driver, 2 Sermons, & the Market

Elder Elijah could not take me to my meeting or do the translating today because he was taking Karen to Keroka.

Taxi driver, Leban

Elder Elijah arranged for an SDA taxi driver to drive Pastor Dan and me to our venue. His name is Leban. He stays with us all day and listens to the message and then takes us home, which is roughly an hour away.

Karen Stuck in Mud

It has been raining like crazy, making all roads so muddy. We started our day dodging huge holes and craters in the roads that are challenging even in the dry season! With the torrential rains, we can’t tell whether an innocent mud hole is a crater big enough to swallow our car!

Sister Denetra Remembers

In 2018, Meg and I visited Kitale, Kenya to preach the Sanctuary message. This was one of the most memorable experiences of my life. The love shared between the people was heartfelt and true. In addition, their desire to understand the sanctuary and heal from roots was evident.

I am so grateful for this experience and I wanted to pass along the compilation of photos taken during our excursion.

God bless you and keep the faith, Kenyan family! Your sister in Christ, Denetra Gary

Christa Preaches

I have been assigned to the Nangili SDA church for most of this week. Elder Elijah is taking me to and from the church. He is also doing all the translations. Unfortunately, the connection is very weak so I cannot connect to the cloud. Therefore, I can’t film the sermons but God has been blessing us despite the problems.

Christa Goes to Market

No, she’s not on a motorcycle… Yet!!

Goods to market

Christa Negley is taking a picture from the left side of the car, as the driver is on the right. The motorcycle is a typical transport vehicle carrying impossible loads to market.


This is where we do our shopping. Beans and other dry goods are in open sacks.

Brown millet

Christa doesn’t usually do farming in church clothes but perhaps she’ll start a fashion trend! She is spreading brown millet and later she spreads corn to dry in the sun. It is then ground for a dish called Ugali (you either love or hate it).
