Last month as Cliff and I waited in the bush plane in the dry barren Samburu area, we gave thanks-thanks for the mercy God shows to those who heard and believed the gospel. Their simple faith is a beautiful thing to see.
We also gave thanks for Joseph, a bright young Samburu man who connects the Word of God through culture and language as no Western missionary can.
