Just 30 minutes outside Nairobi, Riuru Church of the Nazarene welcomed Amy and me a week ago Sunday. Greg preached on Isaiah 55, talking about God’s invitation, “Come!”

The associate pastor of the church, Charles Onyango, is a student in the MAR program and was in one of Greg’s online courses last trimester. Charles is the NYI President for the Central District, and he and his wife, Magdalene, have a new baby boy, Charles, Jr. Also with us as our navigator that day was Mr. Michael Mandela, a 2016 law grad from ANU. He is furthering his law education at the Kenya School of Law, beginning on February 1. Michael also heads up the Bible Quizzing program for the district.

It’s encouraging to see the young leaders whom God is raising up, and to know the key role that ANU plays in equipping them for societal impact. Pray that God will call many more like them to be instruments for Gospel change in Kenya and beyond.
