Posted by Spalding Hurst

August 23, 2021

Sister Philomena Kottoor stated, “Cornelia as you enter Kenya, remember that it is a Holy Ground and that the people are Holy and beloved by God. God is there present, even before you arrive. You are pioneer to a new mission. We believe that “God has called you, chosen you and appointed you the bearers of good news, to go forth and bear fruit.”

This was during the Missioning prayer service For Cornelia Ekka, SCN, pioneer of the Kenya Mission, held on Aug. 23, 2021. Click here to watch a recording of the prayer service.
