garissa outreach

23 Nov

we went on an outreach out of kitale in attempt to get into Dadaab and arrived to Garissa, the closest town to the refugee camp, which was an eye opening experience; there were large vultures sitting in the trees at the outskirts of the town, women and men wore traditional muslim garbs (women were covered from head to toe except the slit for their eyes), and muslim mosques stood scattered throughout the area. this was a place where muslims bombed a local church of believers. anyway, our leaders drove that night to the camp while our team stayed in garissa, but the police made them leave the next morning because of the danger (they arrested a terrorist spy earlier who came pretending to be a christian minister) – so our team couldn’t get in.

we then stayed in nairobi for two days…and i got robbed and hurt the first night. lol laughing about it as i look back on it now, but at the time it was scary. my friend and i ate dinner at a food court in the mall (we prayed for a chinese lady there) and we walked back to the hotel in the rain in the dark. we crossed the street, and all of a sudden i felt a tug on my purse, and i turned around, and i’m started screaming as this guy and i were doing tug of war over my purse. i realized i was getting robbed so i released it and fell to the ground, jamming my finger and bruising my foot and arm in the process. (praise God there were no broken bones, no head injury, no kidnapping for ransom, no knife attack, etc etc.) anyway, i looked up from the ground and i saw my friend chasing after the guy! screaming in chinese! lol funny as i think back upon it now~ anyway, my first robbery in the nations! i never saw the robber but my friend said he was a teenge kid~ pray for his salvation!

the Lord has definitely showed me the prophetic ministry side, especially with dreams and visions, signs and wonders. like for instance, the day before we left to kitale, i slept in that morning and dreamed. i had a dream that i was walking in the mud to kitale, and i looked up to my left to see a floating TV next to me. it was the nairobi national news, with the news anchor talking about dadaab…and a muslim guy in a purple robe side-hugging the anchor. he said that there was a flood going on in somalia (or dadaab, forgot which), and a picture showed up of a truck stuck on the side of the road because of the muddy ground. the rain in the dadaab camp caused confusion and chaos. thus, the new incoming somali refugees were being considered to be sent to a refugee camp in ethiopia. that was the dream. i had no idea that there was a flood going on in somalia – i thought there was only a drought! and i didn’t know that the refugees were getting shipped to ethiopia! woke up with the question: is ethiopia christian? pray for them!!

dreams and visions are real in the activity of the Holy Spirit:  jacob’s ladder at bethel, daniel with the angel and the end times, joseph’s dreams of his brothers bowing down in the future, samuel with visions of the Lord calling his name, solomon’s convo with the Lord in a dream, and even pontius pilate’s wife who tried to stop pilate from crucifying  jesus. God still uses dreams to speak, and i’ve experienced that first hand..like i dreamed of my team mates, who had dreams that matched my dreams.

job 33:14-18

14 For God does speak—now one way, now another—
though no one perceives it.
15 In a dream, in a vision of the night,
when deep sleep falls on people
as they slumber in their beds,
16 he may speak in their ears
and terrify them with warnings,
17 to turn them from wrongdoing
and keep them from pride,
18 to preserve them from the pit,
their lives from perishing by the sword.[b]
