Dear Friends,

Bumping along in narrow vans out of Nairobi and into Dandora, we saw many people walking in the hot morning sun and many people setting up wind-battered stalls of wares in various stages of disrepair. Some families walked to church in their Sunday best. Goats wandered and grazed along the dusty, hilly paths and in and out of collapsing buildings.

At the gates of Kinyago Dandora Secondary School, the dust had barely settled from the hundreds of children, parents, staff, and community members who had come to worship God together on this sunny Sunday morning. These were not all regular attenders of this church service at the school -- many had come today because they heard that some of their sponsors were visiting from America.

The mood was joyous and loud, and full of praise and gratitude. Some of the secondary students helped to lead the music, singing and dancing with an energy that was contagious. We were filled with an inexpressible joy. There were testimonies of students who had been completely transformed by the love of Jesus, and by the care and respect and education they had received in this place.

What struck me was how deeply grateful the students were for this school and their teachers, and for their sponsors -- there was sheer delight in their eyes to see us there.

I had never received a welcome as beautiful as this, and praising God together, rejoicing in His saving grace together, many of us agreed we were on hallowed ground -- a place and  a time when we could catch a glimpse of heaven on earth. Our lives have not been parallel, but the joy and salvation of the Lord bonds us together as a family.

Our church service this morning, at Kinyago Dandora Secondary School, was followed by greeting many of the students in the yard.
