My Next Destination: Kenya


I’ve left Nigeria and found my way to Nairobi, Kenya, where I will be conducting a three-day conference for women this week. 

My friend, Claudia Long, has begun a wonderful camping ministry near Jos, Nigeria.  For thirty years she has tirelessly and faithfully worked in Nigeria, under less than ideal circumstances, to bring a camping ministry to the country.  She works very hard, but her labor is not in vain, as many young people attend her camps each year.
 
The staff of the camp intently listening and asking meaningful—and sometimes difficult—questions about how to deal with certain situations.
I had the privilege of talking with the camp counselors, as they were in a week of preparation, and presenting some ideas on how to counsel these young people.  They come to the camp with many issues and problems, and for many it is the first time they are able to talk about what they are facing at home and elsewhere.  It was a joy to meet them and encourage them in their work for the Lord.

Here is Claudia in front of the dining hall
Please pray that the weeks of camp, which begin next week, will bear fruit for eternity.
