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.

June Update 2012

June 2012 Update Praise Report... This month the Lord has provided for a sound system for the church! This is huge since we moved into a bigger place and had great need of one. We have gotten a lot done in the church building. It is going slowly but surely. We are working on it as the Lord provides. This past month Josh and a few of the guys have been going out sharing with people on the streets of the Love of Christ. There we at least 4 guys that decided to give their lives to the Lord. Pray that they will find a good church that teaches the Bible and that they will continue on as the Holy Spirit convicts them of their sins. This was a huge encouragement to the guys in our church that went out. They are a little more shy, so to see people being convicted and then giving their lives to the Lord was a huge encouragement to them. You know, most people will say that they are Christians but cannot even quote a Bible verse. Please pray for the members of the church. A lot of people still come and go once they realize that we are serious about the teaching of the Word of God and not putting all our focus on “hand outs”. Pray that the Believers would cherish the Lord and the Word of God and would go out and share with others. We go to go to a place called Mois Bridge because the Lord has provided the funds to dig a borehole. Josh has been doing a lot of work to try to get everything done right. In the country people don’t do proper land agreements because it costs money and time. This has been a very difficult process because everyone wants a bribe to do the right thing. Please pray for this process that the Lord would break through the corruption and heal those parts of this country. Also we will be coming to the States for furlough and we have a LOT we have to do here first, physically and financially to make sure everything is in order in our absence. Please pray that the Church would be able to receive from a different pastor. Please pray for provision for all these things. Layla is growing fast, trying to walk and talk. It makes for a busy household. Kelsey is doing well too! These pictures are from the meeting to get the plot for the well. Thanks for all your prayers
