There is a great difference in excellency, usefulness, and comfort between people of clear, digested knowledge, and confused, undigested apprehensions. -Richard Baxter

Now this:

Here’s a little look-see into what you’ve been praying for this week, a note from Bonnie laboring in Kenya:

Hey Patrick! Hope things are going well there.


Things are wonderful here, we just finished our first full day of conferences, and we’re exhausted but pleased with the way things went. It is definitely a new and different world here than we’re used to, much poverty and hopelessness. But the beauty of the Gospel is easily seen on the smiling faces and warm hugs and handshakes shared by the believers at Lighthouse for Christ. Truly I’ve been blessed to learn from my brothers and sisters half-way around the world, and they are teaching me as much, if not more, than I am teaching them.


The lessons are going well, and the women are hungry for knowledge and responding very well. The weather has been pretty nice, we have been blessed by a cool breeze every day, and it has helped ease our ability to last all day teaching. The women’s conference is on the roof of the mission, so it can get really hot up there in the equatorial sun! The Lord has taken great care of our team, we have not struggled much with health, although many have had difficulty adjusting to the strange foods and unsafe water conditions.


A few prayer requests for now: pray that the cool breeze continues! I know it’s a funny request, but the heat can definitely restrict our ability to teach for as long as we need to without exhaustion. Also, pray for an extra measure of strength and energy for our team, we are all fighting against a deep tiredness caused by the time change, heat, and strenuous schedule we must mainain in order to complete everything we have to do in this short amount of time. And, finally, continue to be in prayer about the receptiveness of the pastors and their wives that we are called to speak to, and that our words will continue to be those of the Lord’s. It is all for His glory.


Thanks for your prayers so far, look forward to sharing pictures and stories with you soon!
