"Where Love Makes the Difference"


So long Nairobi!!

Posted by Canaan Community Church on June 27, 2012 at 3:50 PM
Unfortunately I have been unable to update because the Internet has been pretty spotty here in Nairobi, but trust me the experiences have not slowed down one bit! One of the guys on the trip, Dave said "I don't know how to explain what we've seen, there is a story behind every picture, every person and every place we go!". I feel the same way almost completely overwhelmed by my time here. Although Nairobi has been exciting and challenging it has been encouraging as well. There are so many lessons, prayer requests and most of all relationships I will be bringing back home with me. Today we had a CCDA conference here in Kibera with the local pastors and we challenged each other with ways to better love our neighbors. I had the opportunity to present on how the church can engage hip-hop culture and it was definitely needed. From the moment I stepped foot in Africa I have been bombarded with the elements of hip-hop... Every barber shop, CD Stand, and beauty shop was thumping with the sounds of Drake, Nicki Minaj, and Beyonce. as we rode public transportation I was bombarded with graffiti on the back of the seats and large politically charged murals on the walls of the slums! At the first church we visited I met a young girl named Elizabeth who was into hip-hop, as a matter of fact she said she lived to break dance. When I asked her to show me she said I can't my church won't allow it they only let me do traditional African dance. I immediately was saddened and could relate to her pain, I wish I could tell her the church in America was overwhelmingly different but I couldn't. Luckily I had some videos on my phone of Canaan's hip-hop Sunday's and The Houses' Hip- Hop Revival. I encouraged her not to be disobedient but that God loved her and he loved hip-hop as well and that she may have to hide it now, but God will open the eyes of the leaders. Prayerfully today was just the beginning of many seeds being planted! We are leaving the city of Nairobi and heading to Rural Kenya to Amboseli Sentirm Camp and the Amboseli National Park which sits at the foot of Mt. Kilimanjaro. We will be visiting the Massai people who are one of the 42 different tribes found in Kenya. There is big game viewing so we will see many animals up close and personal such as lions, leopards, buffalo and elephants. It is a three hour drive outside of the city so this may be my last update for awhile. A San Tay, (thank you) Pastah J
