Last Wednesday, I wrapped things up in Lodwar, said goodbye to all my friends, and flew back to Nairobi.
Thursday, Frank and drove down to Olulaimutia, where we were to have had a pastors conference this past April. We met with several of the pastors to plan the next conference. One of the leading pastors in this area is Daniel Sayiaton and we spent one evening at his home with his wife Jane.
We took the opportunity to see the progress of the church in Kijirijir that we helped to build through the Brad Pederson Memorial Building Fund.
We also visited Pastor Stephen Muntet and his wife Beatrice who have been big supporters of our pastors conferences in the Mara, and great friends for the past four years.
Tentatively we are looking at the first part of December this year for our make-up conference in Olulaimutia.
Saturday morning, Frank and I took off through the Maasai Mara Park on our way north to Bondo. We thought by transiting the park we could shave a couple hours off our trip, however we ran into the reality of Kenyan roads and ended up adding an hour. But we were rewarded by the grand vista of the annual wildebeest migration, and the migration this season has been one of the biggest in recent years.
We arrived in Bondo some eight hours later and met Pastor Fred Akello, along with a group of pastors he gathered at his church who are very interested in having us bring the API training to them. We shared a bit about our recent conference in Lodwar and then took some time to tell them about the API School of Ministry.
Pastor Fred has been a great addition to our API Kenya team and we are happy to have him with us.
Please pray for Bondo Baptist Church and the pastor's fellowship in Bondo as they stand firm in the gospel and share the goodness of God with the people of Bondo.
