Joseph's Mission Trip to the Turkana Northern KenyaWith everything going on in OUR world-politics, politics, and more politics, other parts of the world are suffering. There is a major drought in Kenya and God Bless Joseph and his team for taking grain to one of the most isolated areas. This small sack of flour may seem like a drop in the bucket BUT to these families it represents HOPE for another day and a sign that someone CARES
Women wait for their bag of meal.
A gesture that says, "Someone cares about your suffering."
The look on their faces speaks volumes!
Joseph and some of the elders.

TIME FOR ART IN KENYA
Here in the states when kids start getting ready to go back to school, our hearts and thoughts turn to Kenya. This year with the new mobile art kits we will be able to spread the healing power of art to even the most remote places in Kenya.The kits are designed with simple instructions, and with activities that are designed to be used with local found art materials.

LIFE IN LAKE NAIVASHA, KENYA
This week Stan has his first official classes at the Crossroads Bible Training Centre. There are two classes meeting: one in town and one out by the lake. The people are excited to be formally learning the Word of God. Crossroads has never charged for the one and two year course. When the students graduate they will have gained a quality education and be better prepared to lead their groups.

This past Saturday Stan and some of the men from the Nairobi Bible college drove to Lake Naivasha to meet with the men who want to begin a Bible training center in Naivasha. Here are a few of the sights from Lake Naivasha.

Crossroads president, Stan Frederick, is back in the states to recharge and brainstorm about the next move for the ministry. Over the past fifteenth years, God has been faithful to increase the harvest.
Shortly, before Stan returned he held a pastor's training seminar at Lake Naivasha, about 60 miles form the city of Nairobi. The men there told him they have been praying God would send someone to start a Bible training school in the area Could this be what's next?
With groups such as the Southern Baptist's International Mission Broad asking 600 missionaries to retire early, the "go ye therefore and teach all nations" command will be an even bigger challenge. One might ask?..."Where does all that money collected by church go"? Well, according to a study from the Evangelical Christian Credit Union (ECCU), 82% of their budget goes to personnel, buildings and administration expenses. However, God is still in the business of answering prayer and when God wants to move a mountain, He provides the manpower and the shovel.

MT ELGON MISSION TRIP - LOCAL B& B
Well, I'm back from two weeks of intensity so I am relaxing and trying to get back to normal whatever that is. It was really a great trip despite being difficult. There were about 40 people there and they were so appreciative. One older pastor said on the last day that he had broken down and wept thanking God that they had been sent this truth. One of the young pastors from Uganda wants to organize a conferences for us in Uganda and in Rwanda. An interesting open door.
I really didn't know what to expect in the property that that Harrison rented for us-at $15 a month no one really knows. It wasn't a bad little house although it very badly needed paint and other work. It beats sleeping in a tent and even had electricity. They put some mattresses and blankets and a few plastic chairs and kitchen utensils so we had what we needed. The kitchen was basically just a small room--no sink, counters, or anything else for that matter. We brought a two burner gas stove and a gas cylinder to cook on. Steve did the cooking and it was a challenge to eat just what they ate. I brought some peanut butter and jam and I went through all of it pretty fast.
The bathroom was outside and was a dirty concrete room with a hole. There was another concrete room for the shower. There was no running water in the house so to take a shower you had to get water from a barrel, heat it on the stove, and then take it outside to the shower room in a plastic basin and do the best you could. On the plus side we were right across the street from where we taught so it was convenient.
The area there is really beautiful lush green valleys and mountains. The weather was beautiful.Everybody told me to expect it to be very cold but it was perfect.

THE PEOPLE OF MT ELGON, KENYA
THE PEOPLE OF MT ELGON, KENYA
We are staying in a guesthouse which is quite nice and comfortable for us. It is run by a man from the Netherlands and his Kenyan wife. We are enjoying our time of fellowship together. We have so far had two days of teaching the people in this area. There were 76 who had signed up in advance to attend the classes but half have shown up. This isn't surprising since some come from 40 km away and must walk over the mountains. They are very anxious to be taught. These people have been subjected to all kinds of tribal violence and wrong teaching by so-called prophets. For an example, some in this area have been taught that it is a sin to use soap, either on themselves or on their clothing. So far I haven't
noticed the odor :) They are great people and receptive to the truth which makes them very special.
For me personally, the greatest thing has been watching the men who came with me teach their countrymen the truth. It has been very powerful in the lives of the ones we are ministering to. I told the men before we left that it would be more important for them to teach than me because they are able to teach in their own language and relate better than an outsider. We have four sessions a day and each of us teach a session. We start with the basics and explaining the foundation of the gospel and the cross. I was thrilled yesterday during a break to see Harrison answering someone's question. Before I knew it 15 people gathered around trying to hear what he was saying in spite of the heavy rain pounding on the tin roof. He was having such a great time answering their questions that we had a hard time getting back for class.
