Spending eleven days in Kenya opened my eyes to the expanse of our God and his Kingdom. God is moving everywhere whether we are a part of it or not. I got to experience life and people in another part of the world God created, just like he created the United States and just like he created me. It's amazing that there are so many people in this world and so much going on that we will never be aware of, but God sees, knows, and cares about all of it.
I met so many beautiful and different people in Kenya, all created in the image of God. They were willing to share their lives and time with me. It's evident in much of the way of life in Kenya, that people and relationships are more important than work, comfort, and materials. I think serving the Lord in another country is an incredible opportunity to consider because experiencing more of the world and the people in it allows us to experience more of God. Everything and everyone were created by God, and interacting with people gives us a greater glimpse into the character of our loving and perfect Creator.
