Thanks for praying!

28 Oct

Ken has arrived safely in Jos, Nigeria. When I asked him about getting the sewing machine through customs he said, “No problem”. The customs guy asked what it was and then asked why he was carrying it. When Ken explained that it had just been repaired and brought back to Nigeria, they all just laughed. So…yay!

Ken is now set up in his room. Someone gave them a small refrigerator to use filled with Cokes and other drinks which is so special. He immediately had a meeting today (Friday) and they will set up and start their training tomorrow.

Thank you for praying for him. So far he’s had no allergy problems and just needs to get some sleep. I’ll keep you updated as I hear more.

    Good to hear! Nothing like carrying a sewing machine through customs. 😉

      Hi Bethany. I grabbed my luggage and was walking out of customs. The man walked up to me and asked what was in the box. “A sewing machine,” I replied. He stood there stunned. “I’m not kidding,” I said. “Would you like to see?” “No,” he replied, “No one could make up a story like that” and just laughed. We all got a good laugh out of that one.
