So we arrived safely last Friday evening – which is more than can be said for our luggage! Thus began 24 hrs of real teamwork, sharing clothing, toiletries and even medication! Thankfully we got our cases on Saturday evening.

Our first lodgings were in Kajiado where we spent the weekend acclimatising and preparing for the tasks ahead. The highlight was our commissioning service in Emmanuel Cathedral, Kajiado where Bishop Gaddiel officially let us loose!

Monday saw a parting of ways as the Blue team headed to Nairobi and UDP while the rest of us journeyed to Oltiasika way up in the mountains. This place is remote but beautiful and overlooks Mount Kilimanjaro.

Tuesday began our work on the site at Imberikani. The Training Centre building is unfortunately well behind the original schedule so, whilst we will be unable to finish the building on this visit, there have been many jobs for us to do. Some of us have been painting or repainting windows and doors, some preparing wood for the building, and yet more have been putting in cable routes and containment. A major engineering project has been the highlight for some of us i.e. putting in roadways and edging. Elizabeth likes to call this the M4 project! As I write this, Elizabeth and Naphthali are facilitating a study day for clergy.

During Team Time last night, we identified that some people will sow seeds, some tend, some reap but it may not be that everyone sees things at every stage. This has helped put into perspective the stage at which we found our building. We are here for this time and to do whatever is required of us. It is a privilege to be involved and to be used at God’s will.

Tomorrow (Friday), the Red Team head for Nairobi and UDP, while the Blue Team join the work at Imberikani. Please pray for us as we venture into different territory and for God’s will for us in this area.

We are all well and are aware of the prayers of folks at home. We are being sensible and looking out for each other.
Kwaheri for now.
