Michael and Rene traveled to Tanzania Monday morning while Matt, LouCinda, Ranelle and Nicole stayed behind. The Pentecostal influence in Tanzania is apparently strong, so Michael had basic lessons on living free from sin and teaching on the Holy Spirit. There were 15 congregations represented and about 50 ministers present for the ministers meetings.
Michael and Rene were initially put up in the same room where Michael took sick last year; they then moved to a different room. They were only about a 15 minute walk from Lake Victoria, which they enjoyed taking.
They traveled back to Kenya Wednesday evening to spend one last night at the orphanage. Michael, Rene, Nicole, Ranelle, and LouCinda left the orphanage Thursday morning to trave back to Nairobi. Matthew stayed behind to get some last minute projects wrapped up and then met the group that night in the city.
Friday was spent doing some sightseeing and shopping, as well as repacking for the trip home. They all continued to sound in good spirits and were doing well.
They have left Nairobi, will stop over in Amsterdam, and then continue on home. Lord willing they will arrive in Memphis Friday late afternoon and then they will split up and travel to their respective destinations. Thank you all so much for your love, support, and prayers.
