Where I stayed
The Methodist Guest House in Nairobi
We transferred right away a suitcase full of choir robes and stoles, gift of Linda Gines’ Berkshire Valley Church, to Job, who loaded them off into his own vehicle for transfer to his congregation. We also brought Job the news that our Mt. Freedom Church, where Linda Gaden preached her final sermon on the Sunday, June 27th (she moves on to take a position as chaplain with the Broadway House in Newark – a residential care/treatment center for persons living with AIDS, has voted to answer Job’s prayer and become their congregational partner.
Among the treasures we brought from home: two lap-tops donated by the firm where Nancy Steiner’s brother works, a laptop from Joe Martinoni (newly installed as Moderator of our Newton Presbytery), a lap-top from David Jones’ congregation, Old Greenwich, and another one which was "surplused" from our home
We can hardly wait to move some of these donations on to their appointed places for ministry!
So Tuesday, we were off to the PCEA headquarters, accompanied by our brother Julius. We met and were hosted for Tea by the Rev. Francis Njoroge, Dep. Secretary General of the PCEA. Secretary General Festus Gitonga is off to the states, to participate in the General Assembly (PCUSA) in Minneapolis, MN. But maybe that’s another story!
