We are a group of mission-oriented people. Pastor Benjamin found us on YouTube from one of our sermons. He oversees a number of churches. They seek biblical truth and have thoroughly enjoyed Karen Zarska Styer's sermons about the experiential aspect of the heavenly sanctuary.
Meg Smyth and Denetra Gary continued Karen's work for the next 10 days. Denetra focused more on the science of the brain and how it processes information while Meg focused on the experiential side of a walk with God.
Curtis Delzell, an experienced missionary and evangelist, is currently with the lovely people of Kenya. They want continued Bible study as they seek a closer walk with Jesus.

Pastor Benjamin has the only car available for our group of people!
Pastor Dan doesn’t even have a motorcycle. Before I arrived in Kenya, we had raised enough funds to purchase a used motorbike or car. However, the debacle with customs regarding my two pieces of checked luggage (they charged me $275 per bag), most of that $1,000 set aside for my transportation needs was used up for unexpected customs fees in the various countries.
I’m going to share a rather lengthy story about an inmate, a battered copy of the Bible – The Quiet Hour hardcover edition, and a godly man named Keith Johnson.
I first met Keith Johnson in 1991 as he was leading a weekly Bible study group in a State Prison in Norco, California. I was an inmate firefighter working for what was then called the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CDF).
On Sunday, I went to one of Pastor Benjamin’s churches. Here is a snippet of the preaching.
The service certainly doesn’t allow for napping!
Abraham, a participant in one of the small groups earlier, translated into Swahili.
Humphrey, another participant in the small groups, lead the meeting in English, with a 20-minute message on the importance of tithing. Then they took a collection. I did a presentation on the next topic in my guides, THE NEW BIRTH.
Pastor Benjamin got up and offered a prayer in which he prayed in English for the congregation, my meetings, and for individuals – very powerful. Members vocally affirmed.
Sometimes I get asked stateside about senseless speaking in tongues or tongues with no meaning. I have only heard Swahili and a few in Lugandan, a Bantu language – one of the major languages of Uganda.
The Chickens are ever present clucking, cackling, peeping and crowing while they scratch and peck the earth at our feet.
