No.17 – Africa 2017 part 3; Church in Busia, Kenya;

On Sunday 30th April we went to Bp Isaac’s church in Busia.
There were about a hundred people present – some of the women were looking after children in the yard outside until they came in for the Eucharist. It was a special day and many leaders attended. Most adults and children wore HABITS of different colours and had travelled large distances. The presence of the Holy Spirit was demonstrated by loud outbursts – led by Cardinal Protus.
Archbishops, bishops and priests led the worship in Swhili, English, Latin and Lukhayo – a colourful and devout 2 hours.
ALL ADULTS PRESENT, INCLUDING MYSELF WERE INVITED TO TAKE COMMUNION.

EVERYONE WAS VERY WELCOMING – ESPECIALLY CARDINAL PROTUS AND A CHRISTIAN NAMED PAUL.

At the end of the Service i was gived 30 mins to explain easyBibles but gave half to Bp Isaac – a good preacher, their pastor and the person to explain further the following Sunday.

It is worth stating that although i do not accept all aspects of this church’s teaching – i understand their need for a black messiah after centuries of cruel, white colonialism AND they have open Communion and allow their members to do Bible translation to help the poor.

I will keep in touch with Card Protus and Paul who has a higher diploma from Nairobi, was a Management Consultant and is enthusiastic re easyBibles.

We met these people again on Monday morning (May 1st) en route to Busia, Uganda.
