These photos were taken in 2004 in Kitengela, Kenya.
This was our first venture into our calling in Africa which spanned from 2004-2010.
This is my wife Mary with Maasai friends.
A revival with the Maasais commenced twenty five years ago.
Previous to that the Name of Jesus had not been heard.
Now, these remarkable people are added daily to God’s kingdom.
Many Maasai live in manyatas, or cow dung huts, built by women.
This particular manyata is tiny.
The door was four feet high and the entrance into the manyata wound through a narrow hallway.
In 2004 I was thirty five pounds heavier today.
When I attempted to get into the manyata, I could not!
Halfway in I got stuck!
Terrified, I pulled out while others laughed.
I wonder if I could do it today.
I think I could.
This is one advantage of losing weight!
