WHAT YOU'LL EXPERIENCE...
Our adventure will begin as we arrive at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in the capital city of Nairobi. Home to 4.4 million people, Nairobi is a rapidly modernizing city on the edge of the Kenyan frontier. With tall skyscrapers and modern highways along the open plains and grassland it is a place where giraffes and highways live side by side. So much history here as well. It's also a great place for us to worship our first Sunday with the Kibera Church in the heart of the city. Lots to see and experience here our first couple nights.
The culture of Kenya is permeated with sights, sounds, flavors, and experiences that will, forever, leave a lasting impression on your memory. Whether it's the food cooking over open flames, the local tribal dances, the sounds of the rich musical heritage, or the vibrant worship of congregations...it's all exciting. And of course, there are the relationships with the Kenyan people themselves. You will have the opportunity to taste of the broad variety of all these things as we travel through and around the country.
The Work of CBH
While English is the official language of Kenya, the common native tongue is Swahili. It is widely spoken throughout much of central Africa and especially in Kenya. Christian Broadcasting Hope has been speaking Swahili too...for decades! Emanating from our studio on the Campus of the Kima International School of Theology, you will meet and visit our CBH team and see and participate in the ministry happening here.
The natural beauty of Kenya is wide and varied. There are the green sweeping hills of tea country and the magnificent Rift Valley. The open plains, teeming with animals, on the border with neighboring Tanzania will take your breath away. Small villages, growing cities, Lake Victoria, and the Bunyore Hills...Kenya is a busy place filled with activity and energy. It's all here in the majesty of this place!
Maasai Mara National Park
"Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory in the heavens. Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger. When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them? You have made them a little lower than the angels and crowned them with glory and honor. You made them rulers over the works of your hands;
you put everything under their feet: all flocks and herds, and the animals of the wild, the birds in the sky, and the fish in the sea,
all that swim the paths of the seas. Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!" Psalm 8
