Whenever I travel internationally, I'm struck by how different things are - food, culture, weather, language...you name it. And yet, as I meet people, I realize that we all have so much in common. Today, we met w/ Oliver and Joseph, two Kenyan pastors. They work together in an effort to raise up leaders and start new churches. As we talked, we realized that our hearts were in tune, and that we were very much on the same page. I'm from small-town Iowa, and I live in suburban Chicago. They serve in one of the poorest slums in the world. But we found common ground in a common mission.
Tomorrow, we'll be finishing preparations for teaching. I'm also preparing to preach sunday morning.
