Kenya Day 1 - Getting There

After almost 24 hours of travel time, which included a connection in Doha, Qatar, the RPC mission team finally arrived in Nairobi, Kenya.

In our team trainings, we have tried to prepare ourselves to be open to God’s presence in ways that we may never have done before. Now the rubber meets the road. We know we are about to step into a very different country and culture than most of us are used to. Since none of us can in read Arabic, the words on the flight map (pictured below) were am early reminder that God has created a world that we are not fully familiar with.

That means God’s surprises wait for us around every corner if we will have the eyes to see them. Our team hopes to scratch the surface of God’s wonderful, surprising creation this week. We thank you for your prayers and support!

Today has been a day of travel and transition, meeting new people and preparing to meet many more. We look in great anticipation to what God has in store for us this week.
