Bibles For Bungoma

This post is another story I want to share with you in my effort to live the Simple Life in Kenya.
In the town of Bungoma, Kenya, there are many churches.
In those churches there are many pews.
In those pews there are many Christians.
In those Christians there are very passionate hearts.
But in those hands, there are no Bibles.

The church in Bungoma is alive and well, but unfortunately, they lack resources to get Bibles into the very eager hands.  When we were doing house-to-house evangelism, I asked the pastor if there was any …

How To Save a Life

Waking up in the morning I never really think, “Today I am going to save a life”.  I mean, I go through the motions of asking that the Lord use me today in Kingdom ways, and that he would bring me to people that need to see him….but I never really expected to literally save a human life.
The day just seemed like a normal day in Kenya.  We played with the children, we shared the Gospel with people, we had about four cokes at 20 cents each…and then Martha spotted …

Paid In Full

What does it feel like to have all of your debts completely paid for?  What thoughts would go through your mind if you never felt the burden of finances again?  This week I got a little taste of heaven as I watched God free a precious girl from her burdens…
It was after dinner when Simone began her story.  I did not notice her much through the meal – she was a quiet girl, content to sit in the background while other people carried on the conversation.  It was only after …

Melissa

So as I told you all last time, Martha, Ashley and I are on an adventure of living simply. Today I want to share with you about a little life that Martha is saving. The story is best straight from Martha‘s mouth, so I will let her tell you about this beautiful story of redemption.

I spotted her from a distance sitting in the sun all alone. Right away I could tell something was not right. I approached the little girl to find her sitting in her own …

The Simple Life

This month, God has been working on my heart about what true Christian living looks like. What does it look like to actually be Jesus on the streets of a small town in Kenya, or the busy sidewalks of America? I posted earlier this month that God showed me how simple evangelism can be. I am beginning to think that simplicity is the mantle that Jesus is calling me to in all aspects of life. As I was painting a school building last week, I was …

From an Angel

Today I had one of the most incredible experiences of my life.  It happened while Martha, Ashley and I were doing house-to-house visits and happened upon the home of three Muslim girls, Morrine, Beva, and Hadeja.  Ashley, one of the most genuine and amazing women that I know, wrote an incredible testament to the story.
I could write about it, but I’ll let her explain it in her own special way….

“Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous …

Could It Be That Simple?

“Did that really just happen?”  That is the thought that has captured my mind the past several hours.  Today that plan was for us to go door-to-door to evangelize.  My lack of training in this area, coupled with high doubt that any good could possibly come from “Jesus salesmen”, served as a crippling appetizer for internal skepticism.  However, this is where I am called, so go I must.  We entered the first house – all 6 of us crammed in a mud hut with out translator Eric, and an unsuspecting …
