According to the Reuters news service, a Kenyan villager was scrubbed clean by his neighbors because he had not bathed in 10 years His neighbors resorted to the action because his odor sicken those around him. They first tied the man with a rope, bathed him and scoured him with sand for over four hours. The man has now promised to wash once a day. That must have been a monumental task, but spiritually we have been where this man was. It was a great day when Jesus washed our sins away.
