Blessings Abundant

Hello All,

I am blessed to inform you that Team Milimani is faring very well. We are heading into our final week here. A week from today we will head back to Nairobi, meet up with the rest of the groups, spend a day in the city, then head on home stopping in Istanbul along the way. Our spirits could not be higher. It seems that the more time we spend in the fellowship of our Kenyan brothers and sisters, the harder it is to think about leaving. 

We were privileged to once again join in the worship of our triumphant Lord this morning at Holy Cross Lutheran Church. Pastor Gurath preached on Habbakuk 2:1-4. A sermon focusing on the God given faith on which we place our trust. I was once again honored to preach the Children's sermon. Which involved the story of the Tower of Babel and Pentecost. The theme was that the Gospel has no language barrier. Pastor Gurath, Kirsten, Jordan, Kate and I also sang two hymns: "Tis Good Lord to be Here" and "Guide Me O Thou Great Jehovah." The latter was difficult to get through. Strong songs and weary singers leads to weepy eyes. 

Tomorrow is picture day at Emmaus Lutheran Hill School. We will take individual pictures of all the students and document their present information and circumstances. We are looking forward to seeing all of those smiling faces for one more week.

1 Corinthians 2:1-2 "And I, when I came to you, brothers, did not come proclaiming to you the testimony of God with lofty speech or wisdom. For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified."

God is Good,
Tom Naumann
