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.

August 2012

August 2012 This past has been so encouraging and fruitful. August started out by the laying on of hands to ordain 2 Elders and 1 deacon. We are so blessed to see leaders rising out of the church and just wanting to help. These men stand out as godly men who love to serve. Since we are leaving September 23rd to go on furlough to the states, this has been most timely for the church to have some established leadership here while we are gone. One lady came up to Josh after the service just to thank him for recognizing Kenyan leaders, this meant so much to her because it is easier for them to go to Kenyan leaders in certain situations. We are very thankful to see the Lord raise up leaders at the church.
Testimony from Faith Sareto Kelsey has been going through Daniel with one or the college ladies in our church and it has been such an awesome time. She shared some things that the Lord has done in her life through this and gave me permission to share with you. (This is a paraphrase of what she said) Studying Daniel has been such an eye opening experience for me. I never knew that there would be prophesy in there, I though it would have been stories like The lion’s den and the fiery furnace. When I used to think about prophesy it was something that I just figured I would not understand but studying this book has showed me that it can be simple if you can just work for it. This book has also helped my spiritual life because it talks about the reality of Christianity. It is not always easy as a Christian but the Lord gives us the strength to go through the trials. I never thought before that somebody could take me as I am, but the Lord does. He takes me faults and all rather than the way that friends in the world. Studying through this book has really taught me a lot and increased my faith seeing all the specific prophesies fulfilled. This week we are getting a mission team in to come and serve with us here in Eldoret. Please pray as they will be doing many different things such as: Medical clinics and Malaria awareness, Construction on our church and visiting orphanages. Please pray for safety and good health for the team and that the enemy would not hinder the work that the Lord will do. Please also Pray For us that as we prepare for our furlough there are so many things to get done is this short time. Pray that the Lord would take care of the church as we go. Please pray for our finances as we are trying to take care of things in advance. Thank you all for your prayers. Josh, Kelsey and Layla.
