Brenda Finally Gets to Church

I’m Brenda Zarska. I edit and produce this blog. I graduated from Andrews University with a classical music degree. I play for the church service at my little but mighty SDA church in El Dorado, Kansas (near Wichita).

Karen and Pastor Bill 2

The Lord is blessing our efforts at camp meeting! The Spirit was poured out as we shared about the Antichrist and the 10 identifying marks of the papacy.

Curtis Describes Workplace

In a village called Simatwet, in rural farmland about 20 miles outside of Kitale, I sit and study the Bible with a group of pastors and church leaders 4-5 times a week. They come from churches scattered across the Western Kenyan landscape.

We meet in a small building of temporary construction over a dirt floor on a property leased by On Call Ministries, a church lead by my friend Pastor Benjamin.

As we study and discuss God’s Word, we are surrounded by the sounds of life going on around the corrugated steel walls of the room.

I hear the sounds of bleating sheep, lowing cattle, braying donkeys, clucking chickens, all grazing and pecking the ground literally just outside the building.

Occasionally a curious chicken, lamb or calf walks into the building through the open door and then leaves after discovering absolutely nothing to eat.

Besides the domestic animals are the sounds of the huge variety of wild birds that live in this tropical equatorial rainforest. Sometimes I think they sound like some kind of electronic signaling system due to the complexity of the sequence of sounds they repeat.
