Thanks for your prayers for Roger and Brooks Thoman as they trained in Kenya the past 8 days. Here is a brief note written by Roger.
Thank you so much for standing with us in prayer for this time with our leaders from five nations who converged in Nairobi!
Brooks writes: “It’s been nothing short of miraculous! Roger and I spent time this morning debriefing. His first question to me was, ‘What could we have done better?’ Now, you know me, sometimes bestowed with the gift of discernment (or extreme negativity), I’d typically have plenty to say nit-picking things to death. But, quite honesty, there was NOTHING to be negative about!!!! When God puts something together, it’s just so, so right…down to the very last detail!!!”
By God’s grace and your prayers, we managed to bring the right material (especially the training on reaching Muslims which was excellent) to the right people at the right time. It was a perfect fit and perfect timing for our gang. They have tools in their hands that they are ready to go home and implement!
Furthermore Kim G, who has been doing this type of training for 20 years, had never seen a more receptive group and had never been involved in a group that is as fruitful in disciple making (his own words). He was most excited and impressed. I hope that you receive this affirmation yourself as you are a key part of this work in Africa!
Here are a few comments from the guys themselves:
“We have never had a higher level of training in this area (of impacting Muslims) before.”
“We can take and use this immediately.”
“These are practical tools for building loving relationships with all people including Muslims.”
“Please let’s take this teaching to our teams; this is very important.”
“Thank you to everyone who has supported this conference.”
