Pastor Benjamin joined us for supper and spiritual fellowship at Elder Elijah’s home. We had a wonderful time together. He has started reading my book, Who Can Stand, and wants to keep in touch with us through weekly Zoom meetings.Continue reading “Christa with Pastor Benjamin”
I’ve been wanting to get a picture of something that seems to be commonplace – moving household furniture on a motorbike!
As we were finishing up our Bible study class, the rains came down in torrents! It came down so hard that the chickens took refuge in the church! Puddles and rivers formed immediately.
Here’s a video I shot just 5 minutes after the rain began. The rain on the metal roof is deafening! (1:03)

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!Continue reading “Pastor Curtis in Kenya 18”
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.Continue reading “Here Comes the Bride!”
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.Continue reading “Great Controversies Arrive!”
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.Continue reading “Pastor Curtis in Kenya 16”
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.
I thought I would share with you what the market in Kitale looks like.
Pastor Dan is pictured with the pineapples; the building on the corner is what we would call an Office Max/Kinko’s.
Elder Elijah and Pastor Dan seemed to know everyone and often stopped to chat. It was an all day affair to get some produce and a few things at the grocery store.
I came home to this…
Apparently he felt like the chair in the living room wasn’t comfortable enough.
I have a few nature pictures that I thought you might like to see. I was at the SDA Church in Bungoma this huge tree. I wish I knew it’s name.
Then at pastor Benjamin’s Church, I saw what I thought were goats but it turned out they’re sheep! Donkeys are everywhere!
I also had to throw in a chicken picture 😂
