When I went to Africa I was impressed with the obvious faith and dedication of the people that I met from the Pastors to the Evangelists to the Deaconess’. I was struck by the reason we went – to see what types of human care projects we could enter into with the Kenyans even though at that time they were not officially a partner church. I was looking for answer to the question – “why do they seem to have so little and we seem to have so much?”
The amazing part of all this to me was the idea of turning it around. Have a Kenyan Pastor come over here and ask the same question about commitment. Commitment to mission/ministry, the mercy/human care etc. I can imagine that Kenyan Pastor asking the question “why do they seem to have so little and we seem to have so much?”
Anyway David Chuchu the projects director for the ELCK will be up here in Minnesota North and North Dakota the first few days of October. This is one of David’s favorite songs and I am honored that I wrote it and he likes it. If you can find out where David will be go and see him and visit with him. You will be happy that you did.
