Travel Diary 13: ENDING OR BEGINNING?

Monday was a busy day. The day started with an appointment with the Vice Chancellor of ILU (Intl Leadership University, formerly Nairobi Intl School of Theology where I taught as an adjunct 1998-2003). That was followed a couple of hours later with an online Apologetics Workshop. I was the Keynote Speaker and needed those two hours to do final prep. Then, it was, eat lunch, pack, and head to the airport. I am at the airport, in the lounge now.
So, the this trip has ended but I have a feeling it is more of a beginning.

Travel Diary 12: TOPIC: ABOVE AND BEYOND

I am about to spend my last night in Africa for this trip. As I reflect back on the trip, I think of the verses at the end of Ephesians 3, which read, “Now to Him who is able to do above and beyond all that we ask or think—according to the power that works in you—to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen”

Like so many other trips, I go with plans and expectations and God goes beyond what I had planned or expected. This trip was no exception. Please click on READ MORE to remember with me how God went over and above.
