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

That they would grow in their classes, in maturity, in their communication of the Word, that the Lord would grant them wisdom.

October- November

Hey Guys, October was the month that we were supposed to be moving onto the property that we leased for the church for 10 years. There was a big hold up when we started the construction on the land. We hired a construction company to come flatten and do lots of ground work and as they were about 3 days into the big project some people came on the land saying they also had a total deed to the very property we had just leased. In Kenya there is major corruption when it comes to the buying and selling of property. You have to really do your homework when thinking about buying or even leasing a lot for a good amount of time and we had. However, even when you do a land search at times documents have been forged or doubled and land is sold twice. This seems to be what happened with the property we leased so, Its in court now for the past few months. Everyone we talk to says that it is the rightful property of the lady we rented from and that we will be able to continue when the case is over it could just take a while. In the meantime, our money is tied up in this case. Things with the church have been going great. We stated our School of ministry back up and that has been a blessing to see men come and receive discipleship and training in the Word of God. We have two men (John and Nathan) who travel an hour and a half to come to the school and it is so exciting to see their devotion to it even at their own expense. These are pastors of the Church that we put a borehole in for three years ago. Their church gets to reach the community through physical water and living water. Please pray for these men that they will continue to teach pure gospel, undefiled. These men stay at our house every Friday and leave early in the morning to get back to their families. The school of Ministry is going though the book Calvary Distinctives and it has been awesome to see a light come on about how church services should run without distraction, teaching through the Word of God etc... Our Family is doing well, we moved in the beginning of October to a safer location we hope and it has been a huge blessing. Please be praying for us as our work permit expires in January and the government has been really giving missionaries a hard time with renewing. Pray for provision for this things
