When it comes to LittWorld, Barine Kirimi is our "man of letters." He writes the invitation letters for conference participants applying for Kenyan visas. (He is far more "important" than the immigration person described in a previous posting!)
Writing invitation letters is just one of Barine's many invaluable tasks as Chair of the Kenya Host Committee. He has led the committee's work, helped find local sponsors, looked into "freebies" for the welcome bag, and made arrangements with videographers, translators and local worship teams, among (many) other things.
Today he drove to Brackenhurst Conference Centre to go over last arrangements with the staff there. Barine does all this while directing the work of Evangel Publishing House in Nairobi. When you see Barine at LittWorld, be sure to thank this gracious "man of letters."
