Kenya 2010

Well, after some hemming and hawing, I have agreed to lead a LEAMIS team to Kenya — by myself, perhaps with an assistant team leader to be named later — next summer.

This is a scary thing. On paper, I was the co-leader of this year’s team, but for various reasons, most of which could not have been avoided, I sometimes felt like I was on the sidelines, not contributing very much — and, more to the point, not learning very much. I will not be on the sidelines this time around.

We’re still trying to track down the dates, as well as the exact location within Kenya. (For those of you who get the LEAMIS e-mail newsletter, the item about the trip in the most recent issue lists an incorrect destination.) I’ll have more information for you soon.

Who knows? Maybe God is calling you to be a part of this trip.

  1. John – Tom traveled to Kenya several years ago, and don't forget he has family members who served there as missionaries for years. I'd be honored to put you in touch with any of them for guidance or ideas.

  2. Thanks very much; I'll keep that in mind, and may take advantage of it.

    We have a good contact in Nairobi, the Rev. Paul Mbithi, who has set up all of LEAMIS' ministry in Kenya. Bishop Paul will be in the U.S. later this month and I'll be meeting with him and LEAMIS executive director Debra Snellen to talk about plans for the trip. We'll be going to Kakamega, in western Kenya.

    Hard to believe this will be my fifth trip to Kenya and my eighth foreign trip!
