This month has gone by so fast I can hardly believe it. Here is what has happened since the last time we have updated you all. I am sorry I can’t post pictures till I get my computer cord fixed. It broke about three weeks ago so it will be some time till I can put pictures up. I will however post them when I get my new chord.
We started our Bible Studies on the Second of this month and they have been going so well! We started out with 5 people not Including Josh and I and have grown to 11 of us total! We are seeing great fruit from it. The Place we are meeting as I have told you is a little library and it is perfect size for us right now but, with the way things are growing we are going to need a bigger place in the next few months. Please pray for provision for a place that we may be able to rent for the Bible study in the near future. We have so many excited people that have told us that they were so glad that we are doing this Bible Study; there are no other churches here that teach the whole council of God.
Josh and I have been visiting different churches and it is unbelievable how little of the Word is being shared. It has been sad for us to see. All of this just gives us a greater burden and heart for the people of Eldoret. We have been hungry for the Word being taught in the churches that we attend on Sunday morning so I can’t imagine how all of the people attending these churches feel. Actually they don’t know any better. We had one lady tell us, of the church that she was going to “This church is bad but I will commit to it anyway” we weren’t quite sure what to say to that.
This one kid has blessed Josh and I in particular, he will walk about 12 miles or more to get to the Bible study twice a week. He says he just loves Jesus and wants to know more about him. Josh was dropping him off at his house one day and found this great spot to pray. It is up on a hill out in the farm country. He took me there this past Wednesday and while we were up there this other kid came up to us asking for money. Josh told him that we didn’t have any money to give (literally “Silver and Gold have I none, but such as I have I can give to you”) but had his Bible and said that if this guy wanted he could share with him the Bible. Josh asked this kid (Jeremiah) if he was born again and Jeremiah said that he wasn’t. Jeremiah said that Josh could do a little study with him right there so Josh shared with him; told him about Jesus and What he did for him and asked Jeremiah if he wanted to become saved. He said, with tears in his eyes “Yes”. He did not have a Bible at home so Josh gave him his Bible. There was so little that he knew about the Bible, I am excited to see what God does in his life. Please pray for Jeremiah and his new walk with the Lord that the cares of this world will not choke him out but that the Word of God will spring up in his life.
Continual Provision for us living here
For the African people in general that they will not see our white skin and see nothing but money but that they would see our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ
For the Bible Study that the Lord would speak so greatly to the precious people attending and bring more in. We want to see people thoroughly equipped in the Word of God lacking nothing.
Thank you for your continual prayers.
May the Lord Jesus Christ be with you
Josh and Kelsey
