Sanctuary Dedicated in Kenya

The East Africa Mission Team dedicated its second sanctuary in as many Sundays on July 28, the Kiboko Church, part of the Presbyterian Church of East Africa.  The new sanctuary replaces the wooden structure below that will now be used for school classrooms.  At the dedication, the pastor and members of the congregation were challenged to enroll 50 children so that The Outreach Foundation might return to build more classroom space for them.  

Members of the mission team enjoyed a wonderful dedication and worship service and enthusiastically supported the special auction offering that took place at the end.  Members and visitors were given a chance to purchase bananas, beans, sugar cane, chickens, goats and sheep.  A nanny kid (female goat) was bought by one FPC member and donated to their guide so he could add to his own herd.

Members of the team head off on a 2-day safari on Tuesday with most of them returning to Nashville on Friday, August 2.
