Isaiah 58:6-12

Isaiah 58:6-12
Is not this the fast that I have chosen? To loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed ones go free, and that you break every yoke? (7) Is it not to break your bread to the hungry, and that you should bring home the wandering poor? When will you see the naked and cover him; and you will not hide yourself from your own flesh? (8) Then shall your light break out as the dawn, and your health shall spring out quickly; and your righteousness shall go before you; the glory of Jehovah shall gather you. (9) Then you shall call, and Jehovah shall answer; you shall cry, and He shall say, Here I am. If you take the yoke away from among you, the pointing of the finger, and speaking vanity; (10) and if you draw out your soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall your light rise in darkness, and your darkness shall be as the noonday. (11) And Jehovah shall always guide you and satisfy your soul in dry places, and make your bones fat; and you shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water whose waters fail not. (12) And those who come of you shall build the old ruins; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; and you shall be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.

Prayer Requests

Please pray for the leaders in the church: Joseph Okoth, Steve Maremwa and Benson Okoth, Alfred Otieno, Ben Lippert, Peter Odoyo.
That they would grow in their classes, in maturity, in their communication of the Word, that the Lord would grant them wisdom.

Please pray that our Children in our childrens ministry will grow in their knowledge of the Lord. There are some kids that come to church without their parents. Pray that the Lord would use those kids to even teach their parents about the Lord.

We have a prison ministry on Thursdays for Men, the Lord has been doing a lot in the lives of those inmates. Pray for open hearts .

Get Ready, Get Set, GO!

Well August is gone along with the summer. It was nice while it lasted and now the days are getting colder and shorter. In the end of August Josh and I. got plane tickets Kenya, so we will be leaving the States November 16th. It is a busy, exciting time. We are planning on leaving Maine the first week of October and driving to Missouri  We will speak to about four churches along the way. Once we get to Missouri Josh will be working a bit and we are going to be getting to know Calvary Chapel Festus, who will also be supporting us. We are excited to be a part of their fellowship for a few weeks. This next two months are going to be busy and we will be moving around a lot.

Ruben, our contact in Africa, told us that he would have a house waiting for us to rent when we get to Eldoret! Praise the Lord for His glorious provision. Ruben also told us that once we have the Bible study up and running that he wants to put Josh's teachings online! What a blessing. Things are just coming right together; he also told Josh that he was going to put him on the radio weekly for a question and answer time.

Please continue to pray for us as we still need quite a bit of funds to get out there and to take care of housing and paperwork amongst other things like shipping our household goods there.

Here are some pictures of events from this past month.
Out on a lake in a paddle boat. (We got to stay on the lake for 3 days for Labor Day)
We got to go Sailing on the ocean with friends that same weekend and had a blast. 
His favorite line was from "what about Bob" (I'm Sailing.... I Sail...)
My Sweet Jessica 
Josh steering the boat. 
Right after this picture the boat tipped over quite a bit cause the wind took us away.
