Visitors – A blessing

Any visitor to Kenya would describe their experience first by the wonderful welcome and hospitality shown to them.  Kenyans truly believe that “visitors are a blessing” which is demonstrated through their generosity and warm reception.

So, it is with excitement that we wait to welcome 2 visitors who will arrive in Eldoret one week from today.

Dr. Dan Sheffield

will teach at the Bible School December 9 – 13

Let me introduce  Rev. Dan Sheffield.  He serves  on the National Leadership Team of the Free Methodist Church in Canada as the Director of Global and Intercultural Ministries.  He gives oversight to Free Methodist ministries to an ethnically diverse population within the borders of Canada, as well to several countries in the world where the Canadian church is involved in ministry.  While in Kenya, he will be teaching Ephesians at the Springs of Hope Bible School.  The Bible School session operates 3 two-week sessions each year.  As the school property is developed, a diploma level will be added.   Welcome Dan!

carpenter for the week

Accompanying Dan is Lorne VanderDussen.  Lorne is being sent by his home church — Frankford Free Methodist Church.  Lorne has been married for 23 years to  Diane and together they have 3 children.  He serves on the Ministry team of his church and teaches Sunday School.  Lorne has a degree in Material engineering and enjoys carpentry as a hobby.  While here in Kenya, Lorne will be building furniture for the almost completed teachers’ quarters.  Welcome Lorne!

An added bonus will be the dedication of our first building on December 8.  Karibuni (Welcome) Dan and Lorne.  We hope you enjoy our Kenyan hospitality and we look forward to ministering together with you.

  1. Debbie,

    Great news about the school’s dedication! Keep up the good work. You are in may prayers as you begin the December session at Springs of Hope. I trust it will be a great time of learning and growth for all the students. -Keith
