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 .

June and July

Hey Guys, This has been such a great time getting to See family, Catch up with friends and travel around to Churches that support us and some that don't. The fellowship has been so refreshing and encouraging. We traveled to Maine in the beginning of June and got to stay with our Pastor, Ken Graves and his family. It was nice for us to see what God is doing in all of the churches in Maine as well as some others we got to go visit with. This was a bit tiring for the Kids and for us as well but when else can you go visit almost every church that you know all in a few months? Never... I should say. The Lord also provided for Kelsey and the Kids to go stay in Washington State with her sister Laura and their Kids while Josh went to the West coast Calvary Senior pastor's conference. Kelsey and the kids had a great time with Laura and all the nieces and nephews. Josh was able to see so many long lost friends at the pastors conference as well. Josh then Came to mer the rest of us in Washington and to share with My Brother-in-law's Church which is Calvary Chapel Yakima. It is so nice getting to see all the different members in the Body of Christ.
Also while in Maine I got too see 3 of my sisters and my Brother and their families.
We ended the month of July going back to Tennessee.
