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 .

January update.

Well January started a new year with new opportunities. We are so thankful that the Lord has brought us through 2011 and are excited to see what He has for us in 2012. This past year has had some challenges, Huge blessings and interesting situations. I will say that this new year has presented some awesome things for us to be able to help with.

The a few weeks ago we were contacted by someone in the States saying that they wanted to pay for a WELL to be dug somewhere of our choice. This is not a cheap thing but the Lord really put it on their heart and asked us to oversee this whole project. There has been a church that Josh has been visiting about a hour away that has no electricity or running water. In fact they have to walk a Kilometer away to go and pay to use someone else’s WELL and then walk all that way back with their water. Obviously this is not an easy task. This is the place that we want to dig the WELL. We are so excited for the doors that this will open since the Church there is going to be the one to be giving out water. We hope it will be an awesome opportunity for people to have their physical needs met along with being introduced to the Living Water, The Word of God.

In the beginning of last month Josh traveled to a town also out in the Bush and taught the Word to about ten churches all gathered together under a tree. He had a great time but had to be taken out early because there were threats that some of the pastors were going to take him by force for ransom. This is not the most encouraging thing for us since we are spending our resources to come reach them. This is something we would like prayer for. There is a lot of greed for money and people just seeking to get all they can out of you here. The Word of Faith movement is huge out here and it is cause so many problems especially with the most poor of people. Please pray for deliverance from this and also for safety for our family.

On another note, our church is growing fast and we are going to have to move again because we are outgrowing our church building. We are hoping to get something quite a bit larger so we can be there longer. The problem is... it is very expensive to rent big rooms in town. Please pray for the Lords abundant provision for our church.

Thank you all for your support in prayers, in words of encouragement and in finances.

Josh, Kelsey and Layla.
