World Mission Live LinkMarch 10, 2012
The Christmas Eve service proved a great success with Rev. Liz Mack leading worship and members of all our organisations taking part. The highlight for many was a first for Max West, when we were able to speak to our Kenyan friends at Mathia Church live and exchange Christmas greetings.
This was made possible through the expertise of Douglas McLaren setting up speakers for all to hear and David Johnson, who arranged the link and spoke to John Njeru and passed on our Christmas messages and blessings to Mathia church.
Pictures from Mathia were shown on the screen of our people’s last visit, students who received help through our bursary and their new church which they are anxious to complete due to a growing congregation.
We have funding in place from Church of Scotland World Exchange for a visit and hope to welcome two people from Mathia here in June.
Bondo is very happy, with their second well supplying more people with clean water. A party for the children was also enjoyed on the same day as the well opened. Pictures of this were seen on the screen along with the latest news.
Winnie is keen to finish building their new church which will also serve as a school and community centre.
The WCT hopes to be able to help with this project also in 2012.
We thank everyone who supports us with our two Kenyan projects and hope you are happy with the excellent progress which has been made in a few years. Those Kenyan friends send you their blessings and good wishes for the year ahead.
The collection on Christmas Eve gave £434.00 to our Kenyan projects and the same £434.00 to Cancer Research. Grateful thanks to all who donated.
