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 .

A look back at March

Lets take a look at March

This month has been busy....

It has been exciting for Josh and I to see the opportunities that the Lord has presented us with in this past month.

Once again we are starting to grow out of our church building, We have had 17 to 18 people coming to the Bible studies and only have a few seats left in the building. We have been trying to get buildings little at a time so we are not paying for a lot of extra space that we are not using but are starting to grow out of our facilities. We are praying about some other options and will let you know if anything happens with that. This is an exciting problem to have!

We have had a guy here (Peter) from Nairobi that has stepped up and started leading worship on Thursday nights which has been a blessing. Its always encouraging to see people wanting to help out.

We have been given a car from a friend here and this is a huge blessing too. It can get to be quite dangerous around here riding around on a motorcycle all the time because the cars here do not respect them. We are constantly being driven off the road so the blessing of getting a car is huge. Its not really a car that you would take on long distances but it will be such a better solution for driving around here. It will be safer for our baby girl too! So praise the Lord for this as well!

Josh has gotten chances to share with a group of about 50 college students this past Wednesday and I think it was received really well. This Sunday coming up Josh will be sharing with The African Inland Church teens and he is very excited about that. There are so many opportunities in different churches to share the Word of God. Speaking of... Josh has been asked to gather a bunch of teachers for a conference that this one church called "Mercy Ministries" is putting on. Josh is in charge of teaching four sessions and gathering all the other teachers to teach about 13 more. They are going for three days going from 5:30am to 9:00pm. The conference is called "Back to the Word" which is such an important topic. We could use your prayers in preparing for this conference. There should be able 300 people coming. This will happen Easter weekend.

We are also very excited because we got our work permit to live in Kenya for three years. This does not actually mean that we can work in Kenya, just that we can stay here as missionaries.

Josh and I are going to a Calvary pastors conference on the 11th for two days so this should be a good time of meeting other Calvary Pastors and to get some good fellowship.

Thanks for all your prayers. may the Lord bless you richly,

Please continue to pray for the Lord to use us in the lives of the people in our church

Pray for continual provision for Josh and I and for the church needs.

Here are some pictures of Josh and I with some kids at the Orphanage that our church is coming to and that we are starting to get involved with.
There is a picture of Josh and I leading worship together. Other pictures of ministry here.
