I had been praying for this project as I worked, but after reading Romans 3:2 I found myself thanking God in a new way for those involved in this training and their accepting the responsibility of being entrusted with His Words. I also found myself challenged to thank God anew for His Words and to recommit to my responsibility to value and share His Words.

A view Jack and I passed yesterday as we traveled via the new Southern By-pass into the city centre which is a great illustration of the contrasts faced daily by missionaries - a view of Kibera slums where some say the average income for residents is less than $1 per day, bordered by just a few of the high-rise buildings housing banks and businesses where millions of dollars are handled daily! Income is just one of many differences affecting those who live and work in this view as peoples in both situations come from not just Kenya and her variety of People Groups, but from Africa and around our world, and they include both refugees and those employed as business executives or representatives of other countries, including a few where our Father’s stories cannot be freely shared. One thing is the same - the people with the highest paid jobs in the massive buildings and the residents of Kibera all need to hear our Good News, BUT how will they hear it in a way that captures their hearts?

Now that I’ve got your attention with this view captured last week while trying out a new road in our new location, I will ask you a question which I had to ask myself this morning after reading Paul’s words in Romans 9:2. How often do “I have great sorrow and unceasing anguish in my heart” for a person or a people group in need of our Father’s love and salvation?
