Commissioning Evangelists

Yesterday we held a big ceremony at All Saints Cathedral in Nairobi to commission recent college graduates and "officers" for Church Army Africa. The newly commissioned will serve throughout East Africa in a variety of missions and ministry contexts, helping to reach out to those on the margins of society, especially the poor and neglected. We've been working hard the past few weeks to prepare for the commissioning event. The Archbishop of the Anglican Church of Kenya was among one of the individuals to be commissioned. Here's a few photos:

Archbishop Benjamin Nzimbi reads the acceptance speech I worked on.

To celebrate and relax after the ceremony, our office went out for dinner at the very nice Carnivore Restaurant (a place where you can sample crocodile and ostrich meat). I don't recommend the crocodile. Here's a couple pics:

DAVID! This is amazing. I'm so happy you're on the same blog as me. Because I can leave you comments until you are tired of hearing my name! Really, this is amazing. Is that your fiance sitting next to you? God Bless you David, and if you're fiance reads this, I want her to know that you made quite possibly one of the biggest impacts of my life, on me!
