Mission Updates no image

Canada is a land of programs. Activities. Schedules. To-do lists.


Africa, on the other hand, emphasizes people. Relationships. Dynamics – what about  the people involved in programs and activities, and how they interact?


So we are always interested to hear about our African colleagues. The Goibei Mission programs are ended for us, but what about the people? It was exciting to hear this week that Simon and Agnes, the managers of our Goibei station, have just gone on to help in another mission program in Kisumu! Employment is very scarce in Western Kenya, and they have been able to continue to support their family!


There were 10 other families on that station, and it saddens me to think about them. I trust they will survive.


Perhaps we, as Canadians, should pause in our busy schedules to reflect on the people around us. Jesus Christ had to travel from Jerusalem to Galilee, but chose the less-travelled road through hostile Samaria. Why? To minister to a certain woman at a well.


God is fairly busy, but He takes time for us.  May He continue to keep you!
