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 .

February Update

February Update

Sorry its been so long. This has been quite a busy month.
Last time you heard from us we were looking for a new place to do our Bible Studies and since then we have found one. We were growing out of the Fish FM. Library and needed something bigger. We rented it about 2 weeks ago and had our first Bible Study there on sunday. The lights did not work for the Bible Study which was kinda ironic because the rest of the buildings lights were working. Just not ours. Coincidence? I think not. Before the service started three college guys walked up wondering what we were doing. We invited them to the Bible Study and the first guy said that he was not born again and he wanted to know “the steps”. Josh told them the Gospel and all about Jesus, the second guy said that he was back-slidden but wanted to come back to the Lord. The three of them came back for service later. It was a blessing being in our new place.

Josh has had different opportunities to share at at least 3 different churches and another pastor asked Josh if he could teach at a conference that this guy wants hold. It would be on Easter Sunday and Josh would have to teach after our morning service and right before our night service. But it is a great opportunity. He is being asked to go share at a lot of different places. At times we will go to a church and the pastor will just announce that Josh is teaching when Josh never knew about it. They love to have white people share.

We have not started Sunday morning services yet. We are expecting to do it in the next few weeks, maybe a month.

Josh is on the radio making announcements about our church and since then we have gotten a lot of phone calls about Christianity in general or just Biblical questions. We had a girl call that I (Kelsey) got to talk to. She was having trouble with her faith and needed desperate help. She didn't know how to come back to the Lord. I got to Minister to her, tell her how to come back to the Lord and encouraged her to read the Word daily. I told her to start with the book of John and 2 days later she writes me to say that she has read 6 chapters and she was finally getting it. She said that it has been helping her so much and that she has been sharing what she is learning just in the few days will all her friends. Its so beautiful to see the excitement of a new believer loving the Word of God.

Its such a blessing to see what the Lord is doing in this place. The harvest truly is plentiful and the Lord is working in this place.

Oh and we have a new addition to our house. Our friend Chatty is a missionary here and needed a place to stay for a while so for the next few months she will be living with us.

Please continue to pray for:
The services that the People will gain a Love for the Lord and His Word
Provision for us and the church rent.
The Churches we get to go visit at that they will receive a hunger for More of Gods Word.
