    • 2. Witnessing the Work and Action of the Missionary Community of Saint Paul the Apostle (“MSCPA”) during the Season of Lent is Awesome & Wonderful
    • 3. The following Lenten reflections touched us during our time in Lodwar and at Nariokotome Mission in Turkana, Kenya.
    • 4. Psalm 23 ‘The Lord Is My Shepherd,’ ‘There Is Nothing I Shall Want,’ ‘Fresh & Green Are His Pastures,’ ‘Where He Leads Me Besides Still Waters,’ ‘He Restores My Soul,’ ‘And He Leads In His Path Of Righteousness.”
    • 5. Meeting and Interacting with the Adults and Beautiful Children of Turkana make us feel part of their family in Christ and the Universal Catholic Church. The sermon on the “Beatitudes” by Jesus uplift our spiritual understanding of the People of Kenya:
    • 6. Matthew 5:3-10 “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.” “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.”
    • 7. Matthew 5:3-10 “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.” “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.” “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.” “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
    • 8. We now dedicate our sharing, photo captions and video of the trip to Kenya to the ‘Bishan Small Christian Community’ for their spiritual and financial support of the MCSPA mission over the past years.
