Recently, I had the pleasure of traveling with With Open Eyes to visit Kenya and South Sudan. The trip was very encouraging to the team and the Mobile Messengers because we had the opportunity to interact with four of our Ministry Partners – Pastor Simon, Pastor Ben, Pastor Morris, and Pastor Sosthen. We were blessed to visit many of their church plants and pray with them, as well as many Mobile Messengers along the way.
A few of the highlights include:
- Worshipping at Namanga Baptist Church in Kenya on the Lord’s day with Pastor Simon and Agnes’ church community
- Going out in the afternoon for worship in the local Maasai village
- Opportunities to talk with village officials about the possibilities of establishing a school, playground, and water well
The trip was filled with many God moments. One was in the town of Lui, South Sudan. We were sitting around in a circle in the evening with a large gathering of Mobile Messengers, hearing about their ministries, testimonies, and sacrifices to plant churches and lead people to Christ.
We are so thankful for our many prayer warriors at With Open Eyes that prayed with us and for us during this time in the field.
