Pastor Emmanuel Karumuri has been working with Herald of Faith for over fivers now.
Enjoying the Adventure
A blog where we continue the adventure with you.
It seemed like only yesterday when I had sat on a porch in rocking chairs and listened to Pastor Demsy pour out his heart. He had been pastoring for several years by then but had never received any training, only what he had learned in Sunday School.
What an amazing year we had in 2014. God has given us a mandate to develop pastoral leaders and strengthen local churches and that is what we have been doing.
Two women of a certain shape commensurate with their certain age shared the compartment with us. They had apparently started their adventure earlier, and were continuing with a bottle that had what looked to me like a cockroach in the bottom, but was actually some kind of herb. One was a little affected; the other one was more affected.
We have been so blessed this year.
Walking onto an American Airlines jet instead of a no name prop-plane to go to Haiti was exciting, but remembering our previous trip and the short, bumpy airstrip, and the small, hot sweat of the crowded two room field office where our luggage was taken, opened and searched, while a man with a machine gun stood by, gave me a slight pit in my stomach.
From the Fitzpatrick family to yours – Happy Thanksgiving! Today we recognize that every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. (Jms. 1:17)
My flight didn’t leave out of San Pedro Sula Airport until late at night and the missionary was quite unconcerned with our four hour trip saying we had plenty of time and not to worry. It had been a wonderful trip to Honduras, full of the blessings of the Lord.
Whether it is navigating a jungle river by canoe in Central America to train leaders, preaching to the believers in the high mountains of South America, teaching national pastors in war-torn Eastern Africa, or evangelizing in rural India or Pakistan – there are always adventures for those involved in the ministry of the Herald of Faith!
