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 😂
As you would expect, there is music all day. The keynote speaker was the head of Education and Music, Western Kenya Division, Martin Akoto. He drove 5 hours to be here and the people showed up!
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).
