College Graduation

This past Friday I had the opportunity to attend the spring graduation of Neema Lutheran College at Matongo, Kenya.  (Neema is the Swahili word for grace.)  A crowd of hundreds gathered for the five-hour ceremony to celebrate with the new teachers and pastors upon the completion of their studies and the beginning of the their professional service in their churches and communities.  The video above is a single stanza from one of the choir pieces sung during the graduation ceremony.  We are grateful to God for these new servants He has raised up for His Church.
