This Is Africa… in America!

For the last 3 weeks, I’ve been in the US visiting different churches here with a worship team from Mavuno Church. I joined them after they’d spent a week at Chapel Hill Bible Church (NC) and we’ve since spent a week each at The Falls Church (VA), Hudson Community Church (OH) and Grace Community Church (IN). Currently we’re Elmbrook Church (WI) though this weekend we’ll be at Wheaton College (IL). At the end of next week, we’ll fly to California and visit several churches there before finally flying back to Kenya.

The picture that most people here have of Africa is of a starving child in a stark desert with a buzzing stomach and flies buzzing around his head. Our message to people here is that there is another side of Africa that the media doesn’t show. A vibrant, hope-filled, energetic, and creative generation that God is using to turn our continent around.

A generation that is called to greatness…

I believe the time has come for the church in Africa to reach out to and be a blessing to the rest of the world.
