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 .

July Update

Friends and Family, Thank you for all the prayers you have prayed on our behalf. It means a lot to us. Layla turned one year old July 15 and started walking right away. She is growing and progressing so fast. She is still learning to talk but isn’t quite there yet. Josh is continuing to do a lot of street evangelism this past month with the members of the church and it has been a blessing seeing them go from deathly shy to having courage in Jesus. Please pray that this will impact the town.
We got to dedicate a little baby at the church last Sunday. Her name is Horeb, this was an honor to be able to see the parents hand over their baby to the Lord.
We have started a small church choir for worship which has been a blessing. Josh is teaching through the Book of Acts since we just finished the book of Mark. The Church is really enjoying simple teaching of the word of God.
We are really preparing the church for our absence since we are going on furlough late next month. Pleases pray for them as we leave, they are not so excited that we are leaving. We have been trying to encourage them to stay faithful anyway. Will you also join with us in praying for provision to be able to leave here. There is much to do before we can go? We also need prayer for the Lord to provide a car for our time in Missouri and then our time in Maine. We know the Lord cares about these needs so please lift them up to him. We just had some sweet friends come stay with us. They are missionaries from Kisumu; a town 2 hours from us. It was so nice having sweet fellowship with them.
