I am so happy! Lovely Wesa has written a post about her and hubby Steve’s quickly approaching (two days!) trip to Africa. If you recall I wrote a previous post about the amazing things God is doing there. If your heart is filled with joy, and you’d like to keep updated on what’s happening, check out this blog.
Now for the good stuff. Scroll on down to read Wesa’s thoughts…
After many years of watching and supporting my sister as a missionary to Africa it is finally my turn to travel and serve God in a far away land. My husband and I are headed to Kenya as part of a team from our church.
This trip is not a medical trip. It is not a construction trip. We are not even putting on a Vacation Bible School for the children there. Many people have asked me what we are going to do.
This is more a trip for being. We will be with the people as they watch the Jesus Film and hear the words of Jesus in their heart language for the first time. We will be with them as they celebrate what the Holy Spirit is doing in their church on Pentecost Sunday. We will be with the local pastors as they take the movie to the manyattas for the first time. We will have the opportunity to be with the Compassion Children that our church family sponsors as they attend school. We will be with our church’s missionary family as we see the reward of 4½ years investment in the Jesus Film project. We will watch as that which we sowed in faith produces a harvest of righteousness, to the glory of God.
We’ll be there to partner with the Holy Spirit as these things unfold. Perhaps we will pray for healing, or salvation or deliverance or comfort. We will listen for what the Father is saying. We will watch for what the Father is doing.

That brought tears to my eyes. I’m so proud of my parents. I believe the Lord is going to do amazing things in and through them while they’re there. ~Christine (Brantl) Olson
