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.

Pastor Benjamin and many of his people attended, arriving on time, which is sometimes challenging.

Thank you so much for your extra prayers! I have really felt a need for the support because an unseen battle going on.

Chickens, Rain, and Motorbike Moving!

I’ve been wanting to get a picture of something that seems to be commonplace – moving household furniture on a motorbike!

A Bed Frame & Love seat!

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)

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.
