Since the internet seems to be working today, here is part two of Sunday's blog.
Yesterday, Frank and I left Stan in Matete to continue his work there to head down to Olochani, near Kilgoris in the Transmara region of Kenya. We are helping the church in Olochani put in a concrete floor in the church they built with the help of the Brad Pederson Memorial Building Fund.
Today we attended the service there with the Olochani church. It is located on top of one of the hills around Kilgoris with a commanding view of the surrounding area. The only drawback is that there is no road to the top, so we walked for nearly 1 kilometer, huffing and puffing to the top.
And before you ask, yes it's kind of like being in a tin oven when the sun is out.
Pastor Benson Ntuntai has a small congregation with a lot of children. Here is the Sunday School class.
And here is the church in Olochani.
Visitors are always an occasion to drop by, and this grandma was no exception. She had never been to the church, but when she saw a musungu, she couldn't resist climbing up to see.
Tomorrow we begin the floor project and as you can see, the materials have been stockpiled, brought up by donkey.
