Leaving Mombasa

My time in Mombasa is coming quickly to an end.  It has been WONDERFUL!   What a great retreat we had with the missionaries!  It was sad to see everyone go back to their various places.  Most are Kenya but one couple was from Tanzania.

Friday night we did a dhow (boat ride) to Fort Jesus.  It was a beautiful night and I got some great pictures of the sunset on the water. We had a light and sound show of the history of the Fort.   Then we had dinner outside by candelight.  That was really cool!  After dinner we had communion in a circle with everyone.  That was such a precious time after learning about everything that had gone on at the Fort.

Yesterday was a long day with 2 services at the Elim Church.  Sylvia preached twice and she was very anointed.  Afterwards they video taped her for a documentary for the church.  We finally got to lunch around 4:30 p.m.  We ate a hotel on the water.  It was very nice!

We are the last ones here today.  I've walked the beach and bought a kyamba for school.  It's a flat shaking instrument.  I'm sure the kids will enjoy it.

We leave here at 4 p.m. for a 6 p.m. flight to Nairobi.  We'll be staying at a guest house of one of the missionaries I met here. 

Thanks for your prayers!  I couldn't have done it without that coverage!
God bless you!
