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 .

“Who am I, O Lord God...that You have brought me this far?”

Bongoma School outreaches

2 Samuel 7:18

September is ending And boy has it been a packed month. Gods Grace and provision has seen us through.

Layla is 10 weeks old and is growing well. I (Kelsey) and dong well too. I am leading worship with Josh and Staying at home raising Layla. Please pray for Gods grace to raise her in the Love and Knowledge of the Lord.

This month Has been a big traveling month for Josh. He was gone for four days in the beginning of the month. Last Tuesday he went two hours away to speak at three schools and a school of ministry college. That was such a good opportunity for him. He spoke at a high school that had 1000 kids and 74 of them gave their lives over to Jesus. Since then He has been asked to share at a a conference about 60 miles from here which he is doing today Tuesday and Wednesday (Sept. 27-28) and this weekend he is going to speak at one of the most popular High schools here. It has about 2000 kids there. Josh has met this guy that has a heart to go to schools and colleges all over Kenya and wants Josh to go with him to preach. There has been a lot of great fruit from this and Josh loves it. It is so encouraging to see all these doors of opportunity swinging wide open. He is now being asked to go off to some school about once every week.

The Church is doing well. People are growing. Our Prayer is that more people can come and hear the good news of the Word of God. We Had our first children’s class 2 weeks ago and another again this past Sunday. We don’t always have a class because there are not always children. But they have been blessed to have a class just for them.

The Prison ministry is also going well. The Prisoners asked last time Josh went if he could bring a pad of paper and a pen so that they can take notes so he was able to get those things for them. Its exciting to see people want to learn.

The Lord has been so faithful to take care of our family.

Prayer Requests:
That the Church would continue to grow

For strength, provision and the Blessing of the Holy Spirit for all this traveling and all the ministries Josh is doing.

Wisdom for leading the Church

Thank you all for all your Prayers, for your support and kind words of encouragement to us.
