Kenya 2014

  • God’s will be done.

    We are nearing the end of our Kenya adventure. We have sore fingers, tired voices, and thankful hearts.

    Serving the Sim Sudan teams has been such a pleasure. Hearing their stories and getting a glimpse into how these wonderful people live and serve the people of South Sudan has certainly been eye opening.  We’ve played and sung many songs and been thanked over and over for what for us is such a joy and an honor.

    I’m personally thankful for my wife Kim who saw this path for me long before my stubborn heart did.  She knew I was suppose to be here and I love her for it. I’m th...

  • This may the last message I send, as we leave for Nairobi tomorrow to catch a flight home.  First let me thank you for your prayers and support, as I would not be here if it wasn’t for you, the donors and supporters.  I was able to give the WMM Cajon (that I have played hard!!)  to a South Sudanese church.

    After worshiping I gave an impromptu demo to Dah, their music leader.  He said that their drums they use were in terrible shape.  I wish that I had drums to give him, but he assured me that they could use this instrument (though not indigenous to Sudan) to worship in a traditional Suda...

  • We have entered a little bit of a calm time, so I thought I would give you a little perspective on the place I am staying.  It is an amazingly beautiful, peaceful place. It would be almost paradise if my family was here. You may wonder why I get to be here.

    When you hear the stories of the people we are serving, you understand why they need this time of peace and refreshment. They lead challenging lives in difficult circumstances in the best of times. As you know, these are not the best of times in Sudan. One group I ate with yesterday told the story of their evacuation, as they were in a town...

  • What a journey. I can not believe the week is almost over. It’s been a very busy week. Very hard to find quiet time to write. I came on this journey not knowing what to expect other than new emotions.  I signed up for the trip not knowing what conditions would be like or really even where I was going except that it was Africa. Â God clearly told me to go and I could not turn back.

    I have been going through the week wondering when the emotions would set in. Well I have my answer.  Today, Friday, our third day of service was the day the tears came. The day started off as normal.  Breakfast at 7 ...

  • To be honest, the first couple of days we were here, I was really having a hard time. I was ready to go home. Â I was tired and I wanted to drink clean water without all the bottled water issues. But then meeting and talking to the missionary family’s and seeing how much they gave up to share the Gospel here has been eye opening for me.
