The Arsim, Kenya, Mission
In March 2018, Pastor Tim led a five person team from Christ Lutheran Church (CLC) in West Cobb County, USA to the remote Church in Arsim, Samburu County, Kenya. Missionaries Julia and Vincent Harrington-Leiyoole guided them throughout their journey from Nairobi to Arsim and back. The CLC congregation donated 100 Luci Lites (solar powered LED lamps), Tootsie Roll pops, popcorn, pencils and sharpeners, workbooks, whirligigs, etc. The team carried the above items across several continents by plane, truck and foot to the residents of Arsim and Sedai villages. On this service/learning trip the team saw a dispensary in Arsim, a clinic in Sedai, the "Jesus" movie translated into Swahili & attended by 170, the school and church in Arsim, met with locals at their manyattas, started to learn how they live and began a partnership between our two church communities.
