For four or five hours at a time, I and my study group look at all that the Bible has to say on a specific topic. The general theme has been: How Continuing the Protestant Reformation brings God’s Character of Love into clearer focus. Our study together has been a life-changing experience!
I attended an Adventist wedding in Kitale. Daniel Isaboke & Paula Kamande are members of the Flyover SDA Church in Kitale. The wedding was held at the Amazing Discoveries SDA Church, part of the compound built by Elder Elijah and his wife.
I was told that copies of the Desire of Ages that I had wanted arrived from Nairobi. When I got to the tiny Adventist Book Center in town, I discovered they were Great Controversies. I got 10 of them in Swahili for $1 each. I was told that someone subsidized them or each copy would have cost $6. So some saint somewhere has given a gift that makes it possible for Kenyans to have a softcover of the Great Controversy for 100 Kenyan shillings or $1.
Because of my lack of transportation, I was an hour late to my bible study class. Thankfully, the core students waited for me! By God’s design, Pastor Dan made a point of being in attendance. It turned out that the student who translated to Swahili for me, had issues with the topics of the Ten Commandments and Sabbath observance. Pastor Dan’s presence kept him from straying from a true interpretation of my commentary. I suspect that the student may not be back to the study group.
Our little Bible study group had a fantastic time together! Tomorrow morning, we will establish, without doubt, that the 10 commandments of Exodus, are the sole standard by we prove our loyalty to God’s government.
After lunch, we raise the role of Sabbath observance as the Sign of Allegiance to our Creator. It’s a big day! I encourage everyone to pray for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
