Big day, in kiswahili.  Pastor Job, the pastor here at Gatab was ordained as Bishop of the district to day at a big service in Korr.  I flew a few of the missionaries over and back.  Pray for him, he’s got a big job ahead. I think he’ll do very well, but the job is too big for anyone to do without God’s help.

The service was loooong, about 3 hours worth. Everyone had to get up and say their piece or sing their songs.  There were about a dozen choirs from various places, and of course all the bishops and pastors that flew up form Nairobi for the event had to be introduced.  I’d been telling Job for some weeks that we’d have to get him a proper bishop’s mitre, a thought he’d denied every time.  IT seems the ladies in the church heard me, because some of them put one together for him…

The flying was routine and easy today.  It was a good day to fly.

    That is one whuppin’ Kenyan mitre! God grant Bishop Job many, many years.

    It’s a crazy outfit. Truth is Job is one of the most humble men we’ve met. Yesterday (the next Sunday) Jay was still stuck in Nairobi. During Sunday School, the propeller on our windmill broke loose and disappeared. After church, Job (who had just preached), and two other men of the church were at my gate to help beat the bushes for the missing pieces. It is a sweet thing to be served by God’s servants. Now if we could just have a healing for the windmill.
