This morning in Houston, I was able to greet my dear friends from Kenya, Bishop Walter Obare and Rev David Chuchu of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Kenya. At LCMS World Relief and Human Care, we have worked closely with Bishop Obare and Rev Chuchu on human care projects, particularly with orphans. David Chuchu is in a matter of speaking the counterpart to Rev Matthew Harrison for the church In Kenya as he oversees the human care projects there. Rev. Chuchu also had the opportunity to address Floor Committee 6 (Human Care) about our joint work together. Since the volcano in Iceland this spring canceled my trip to Kenya, it was a joy to see my friends.
