Most people in our church family here in Nakuru don’t ever get to feel a hot shower in the morning, or even a cold one. They bathe out of a bucket. Many don’t have enough clothes or basic necessities of survival. Now we are working on helping with all of that, but meanwhile it’s good to feel a little of what they go through each day.
For over 6 months 180 people lived “kind of like” most of the rest of the world populations; and right in the middle of the United States.
This morning I woke up assailed with the negative feelings and depressing thoughts that always begin to come when I first arrive in Kenya. It was if a cloud was descending on me. I began to praise the Lord, read my devotions and got up to take a shower.
Although I felt better, the oppressive feelings still lingered. After dressing I went to my computer and found an email from a man I met for 2 minutes 5 or 6 years ago in India. He stated that God had awakened him in the middle of the night and gave him a vision. The vision was about me.
Receiving the exhortation and encouragement as God’s word to my heart I begin to be filled with joy.
Instantly all the oppressive thoughts and feelings lifted. It was like the sun of righteousness rose in my heart!
Here is his letter. His English is a little rough but his spiritual insight is right on the mark....
The lord be with you!
