Kanyariri School

Last thursday we travelled about 100m down the road from our compound to a local school called Kanyariri. Most schools here have a Christian Union that meet once a week to share, be encouraged, learn from God's word, worship and so on. We often go visit these meetings bringing along skits, mimes,  and songs which portray a biblical message. I have never been one to act or really sing but I have to say that I love these outings. Some skits can be very powerful and really teach the students a lot. Singing songs of worship just melts my soul. I love it. I love being with the students loving on them and encouraging them in their faith.

Our ring leader, Makau, decided to sit amongst the students. He blends right in. 

This is one of my classmates, Joseph.

Peter was preparing to speak to the students today. He actually used to go to this school and was the chairman of the Christian Union. The group was excited to see him again. However, the rain put a bit of a damper on his preaching. It started raining so hard that you couldn't hear him over the sound of the the rain pelting on the tin roof. So we decided to sing! It was joyful! Singing in the rain, just singing in the rain. It was a great time of unexpected, unscheduled worship of our king. 

Eventually the rain did stop and we were able to continue our lesson from James 1 which encourages us to be joyful during times of trial. The rain was an unexpected trial but resulted in great joy!
