Ephesians 2:8-9 "For by grace you have been saved through faith and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast"

 AFRICA TIME    Hi all:  Here I am in Nairobi, Kenya,  East Africa again.  I did send facebook info.  I was welcomed by all at Hampton House and met the new manager.  Stan came by today and we had lunch and caught up-as best we could in my semi-conscious state of jet-lag.  He looks well and is in his element.  We walked to Serit Center-it was like seeing an old friend.  My suitcases haven't arrived yet.  Hopefully tomorrow. It's a good thing I stuck a couple of pair of socks and clean tee shirt to brace my laptop or I would really be in trouble.  
It's rainy, overcast with spurts of sunshine so more difficult for the "internal clock" to start ticking on it's new timezone.  There is no mistaking that one is in Africa. The trees are bursting with colorful blossoms.  Large brown birds are noisy but friendly.  The streets are bustling with blacks chattering in Swahili or other native languages. You can only define the traffic situation as thousands of drivers who at any moment, will certainly run into each other.  I'm eager to begin my teaching.  Thanks for your support to me and prayers as I await those special doors to open and share what we believe with others.
My definition of jet-lag:  a two day condition that attacks the body, mind and spirit in which you can't wake up and you can't go to sleep. Love to all, Cliff

Cliff left for Nairobi, today, November 12th. His trip started with a wild first leg. He was to fly out of Aspen but the nivagation system was down and there was no time to drive all the way to Denver. An alternative-Grand Junction. We flew there with no time to spare and they rush him through baggage check and security.  Wheeee-he arrived in Denver with barely enought time to catch his British Airways flight to London. HOWEVER-the Lord was smiling down on him-he got three seats across....all to himself.  If you've ever been on an 9 hour flight you know what a blessing that was-more updates to follow. 

It's always exciting and a little unsetteling when listening to your Father's voice means  boarding a plane and flying off into the great unknown. However, one is only setteled by that voice.Cliff...Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.1st Corinthians 1:3
