Mission Team Returns from Kenya

Pastors Ed and Robin and Grace and Ben Dowe returned from their trip to Kenya. So far they have presented a short children’s message and Pastor Robin preached a sermon based on some of the their expeiences. Her sermon emphasized the differences between America and Kenya. The theme centered on the fact that Americans are rich in material things but poor in spiritual ones. In contrast, Kenyans are poor in material possessions but rich in their faith and in spiritual things. They are planning a more in-depth presentation in the future as they sort through the hundreds of pictures they took. It is obvious that their 18 day trip had a profound impact on them.
