Last week I shared about our giving to Goma, Democratic Republic of Congo. Our family is planning, God willing, a trip to Africa next July for a month. We are planning to visit a newly formed Orthodox Diocese lead by the Kenyan born Bishop Neofitos.
We will be in Kenya for about three weeks helping teach in the new Diocese and descerning whether or not God is calling us to serve full time in Africa.
We are excited to be spreading the teachings of Christ and bringing the Gospel to those who are hearing it for the first time. Just as God called the 12 Apostles to go to the ends of the earth and make disciples out of all nations we too are called to bring the light of Christ to the world.
We hope to spend our last week in Goma with John Nabulanda and his family. Those who I write of last week. We currently are sponsors of their work and are looking forward to seeing them and witnessing their fruitful ministry.
We have been researching life in Kenya and the life Orthodox Church and have watched many YouTube videos highlighting the Orthodox Liturgy. The liturgy is rich with orthodox history and vibrant with the African culture. You’ll hear Greek, Swahili and English spoken during the liturgy and is quite beautiful. I have attached a video for you to view.
