Two of my heroes

Kenyan UMC pastor Paul Matheri speaks at the North Georgia Annual Conference in Athens, flanked by Bill and Chat Coble.

Kenyan UMC pastor Paul Matheri speaks at the North Georgia Annual Conference in Athens last week, flanked by my friends Bill and Chat Coble.

The theme of last week’s North Georgia Annual Conference in Athens was “Bridges to Mission.” My friends Bill and Chat Coble, UMVIM missionaries, talked to the 3,000 or so people there about their work in Kenya. They also had a question-and-answer session last Wednesday evening, at which Kenyan pastor and district superintendent Paul Matheri spoke.

Yesterday, Bill and Chat gave a testimony in both Vinebranch services about their work in Kenya—and I’m sure they inspired some of my congregation as much as they’ve inspired me. They are two of my heroes. Find out more about  their ministry, Start With One Kenya, here.

I put together the following video, which I showed in yesterday’s services. In the video, Chat is teaching a church in an IDP camp about the life-saving water filters that their ministry distributes.
