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 .

Its Christmas time already! --Our December Update


Here is just a quick little update on Josh and I over here in Kenya. Things are going well. We have been in our new house for about two weeks and love it. We just found out that we have an avocado tree which is a sweet little blessing from Jesus.

Josh taught at a pentecostal church Sunday, December 19 and it went really well. Our prayer is that the Lord would have used josh to really give the people a hunger for Gods Word.

WE got our Motor Bike which is how we get around town. Yes both of us ride on it which will become more difficult as the baby grows more over the months. Driving around here can be quite scary; there are road laws but nobody obeys them so please pray for safety we have already had a few scary moments.

So for the Big news! Our first Bible study is going to be held on January the second at 5:00 at the Fish FM radio station office in town Eldoret. Reuben Kigame has graciously allowed us to do Bible studies there till we find a place bigger. It can probably only hold 10 people which will be good to start off with. We will however need a new place once it grows a bit.

Reuben has also told Josh that he would like to put all of Josh's teachings on air weekly and give Josh a radio show too.
Please continue to pray for the people here that the Lord would give them a hunger for Gods Word and not just go to church for entertainment.
Please pray for the Lord to continually provide for us as He is continually faithful to do so.

We wish you all to remember Our Christ's Birth this season and what it is He came to this world for. He came to redeem His people because of His great love for us. What a blessing!!! Remember the Lord!
