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 .

New Happenings: Praise the Lord we have found a new Church building that is not a whole lot more expensive than the place that we are in now. It is three times bigger and should be able to hold our church for a while. It is still in town which is a big deal for us; seeing as though town is a central location and we have people coming from every direction. We have a LOT of building that needs to take place now including building a very big wall to divide the place we are renting from other parts of the building. Please pray for funds for this project as building here can be expensive. The church is very excited. Last week we had at around 20 kids in our tiny children’s ministry room and they couldn’t even sit down. It was PACKED! We are leaving just in time. We are excited to say that we are laying our hands on 2 different leaders in our church. We have one deacon now and one elder! This is really exciting to see people stepping up to fill their place in the body of Christ. They are a HUGE blessing and encouragement to us. We also got to go to our new annual CC Missionaries retreat which was wonderful! The Lord spoke in such beautiful ways, encouraged our souls and it was wonderful to see friends too! Josh also got to teach at this retreat which was really cool. Many people were greatly blessed. About the Family: Layla is growing faster than we can keep up with. She says a few words like “Mama, Dada, Papa, and Hi” She just learned how to wave yesterday which was really exciting for us. She is trying desperately to walk and terrorize the whole house by emptying every cabinet she can find. Our family is doing well. Not to many sicknesses lately and we are praying that it stays that way. Prayer Requests: For more leaders to be raised up in the Church. For the Lord to send some people to help with the ministry that are trustworthy.
