These are just a few of the fun family things going on lately…
Today we dropped Katie, Benjamin, Isaac and Josiah off at “Summer” camp for a week. Thanks to a generous scholarship, all four of them are able to attend Camp Blue Sky for a week. CBS is a great ministry aimed at MK and expat kids here in East Africa. They get to spend six days at a fun, christian camp meeting other kids just like them. Though we had to swallow the lump in our throats when we left, we are thankful that they are able to be ministered to in this way. Grace is happy too -for other reasons. She just wants some peace and quiet in the house, and Mom and Dad all to herself!
On another note, our work permits are close to approval so please keep that in your prayers. Most of our team members are also back in South Sudan now. The Cross family and the Rangteigongs head back in next week. Rose Cross is doing very well and so is Hiakie. Mark is still planning a trip to Doro June 20-July11.
Mark has also been able to make several visits into Kibera (here in Nairobi) and is meeting with some laypastors and ministers there. He has also been invited by a store manager to do some Bible teaching to employees at the local Nakumatt, a surprising opportunity.Stacey continues to meet with “K” from China. Please pray for us that we will faithfully speak and live out the Gospel and encourage those around us – both here in Nairobi and in South Sudan.
