Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.
Matthew 25:45 (NASB)

We have arrived safely. After journeying Monday through Washington, Tuesday in London, and Nairobi Wednesday, we arrived Wednesday afternoon here to Mfangano Island.
We were greeted warmly by the 490 children of Gethsemane Garden Children's Center and their staff. We rejoice that we have brothers and sisters throughout the world. Our kinship is not based on the color of or skin but upon the blood of our Savior Jesus Christ.
Today, we begin construction work, prepare for distribution of 500+ socks and shoes to Ringiti Island and prep for medical clinics and HIV education seminars. We rejoice in the opportunities the Father has provided.
Last evening, we dined of perch, rice, fried potatoes and a local sauce to go over the rice. Sorry, I cannot guess what the sauce was made of. Add a little hot sauce and it was almost home.
Thank you for your prayers. God is working. I can wait to share as the says go by.
