Loving Life in Kenya...

We have been serving the Lord as BIMI missionaries in Kenya, East Africa since 1997!  We are happy for the opportunity to serve Him here, and we thank Him for every blessing to our family & ministry.  This is a blog of some of our personal family happenings, and in short - our Shelby Summaries!

March 10, 2013 - Update/Kenyan Elections

Dear Praying Friends and Family,

Thank you to everyone who has prayed for us and for Kenya throughout this past week. It seems like everything is back to normal in Kenya for the moment. We have not had any more reports of trouble since yesterday.

The opposition party still plans to take the election matter to court, so we may still see some tense moments in the days to come. Once they take their petition to court, the court will have 14 days to make a ruling one way or the other. March 26th is the day that is scheduled for the swearing in ceremony for the new President. So the court case could cause a delay for this date.

And we are happy to report that all of our churches were able to meet for services all across our region (Nyanza) of Kenya without any problems! After talking with many people all across this region, we are hearing the same thing from all areas; the Kenyan people just want peace to prevail, and they are willing to sit back and let the court decide the entire matter. This is a great answer to prayer!

Thank you everyone for praying!

Serving Him in Kenya,
