thought for the day...Pastor Boaz is senior pastor of his church, is also the overseer of close to 500 pastors in this region,has over 40 orphans of all ages in the house where we are staying that him and his wife Ruth care for, this morning I was trying to find him and he was in our bathroom on his knees scrubbing the toilet....another hands on lesson in servanthood for me ;-]
The sun is just coming up over the hills of chemilil and I love the morning time here. The air is cool and the roosters are crowing,the sound of all the birds waking up is music to my ears.I am forever grateful to the LORD for giving me the opportunity to serve here or at home with all my friends...Let's never get it confused when it comes to serving,if God had a newspaper the headline would read"man takes hopeless drunk to meeting and gets him through the first step.I think he is on the road to freedom" the mission field is right outside our front door ;-]

A beautiful day in Chemilil Kenya, a lot of traveling today to see where the pastors live that we are helping out. A small metal shed with 32 beautiful smiling children that these men take in and lay down their lives for these orphans. It is different than an orphanage in that the men and their wives are mama and papa to these kids. I am truly humbled by what they believe a servant should do for his people. Tomorrow we travel to ahero to go chicken shopping and then establish small chicken ranches to supply the men with eggs and gueno "chickens"......

A quick note from Shane:
Today went good ....lot of progress.
Tomorrow we are getting thirty chickens - 9 hens and a rooster each for jack, alex and cosmas.
As for the goats, pastor jack is going to three places tomorrow to inspect the live stock and so hopefully we will have them delivered next week and the small barns built.
I am amazed by our friends and the way these men lay down everything for these kids.
