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 .

December Update

December wraps up the 2011 and so much has gone on this year. We just finished the Book of Genesis and are about to finish the book of Revelation too! God is so good. The Church is doing very well. We had a service on Christmas day and they enjoyed it. It was a really powerful time of Looking at Christ and what it meant for Him to come to earth to be the perfect sacrifice. We also had a big church Christmas feast at our house that went really well. The people loved it. They were so blessed to have something like this. They said that most pastors would never do things like that at their houses.

Me and Layla are doing well. Layla got her papers though so she is officially an American citizen and a passport holder now! Thank you all for praying! This was a a BIG deal for us.


Josh has had many opportunities to travel and teach in the past few weeks. He got to preach at a crusade and spoke to around 1000 people and a bunch or people got saved. The pictures below are of the crusade and a church that Josh shared at. There is a picture with a group of people all around him... That is a bunch of kids giving their lives to the Lord.

We thank the Lord for all of you who pray for us and support us! may the Lord bless you this Holiday season and remind you of just how great it is to serve such a wonderful KING.
