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 .

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. Matthew 5:6 For He satisfies the longing, and fills the hungry soul with goodness. Psalm 107:9 Hi all, Whats going on with the Church This has been a great few months. 2 weeks ago we had our annual mens conference and it was a huge hit. Every time we do one we have men comment that they wish we had these more often. This year we had about 150 men gather together for a day long conference. We had 2 guest speakers come from Nairobi to share with the Eldoret men. They shared on Biblical culture, 2 separate sessions on Being a godly husband and a session on being a man of God. In this culture the women are often belittled and beaten by husbands, even men claiming to be christians so to have godly men come and tell them how to be the husbands Jesus calls them to is quite a revelation. We have also started a saturday night evangelical service this past saturday (March 19th).We do a lot of worship and then an evangelical teaching. We want to get people into church and share the love of Christ and the Gospel with them. Whats going on with our family. We have had 2 months of sickness with our family. We have a bad lingering bad cough particularly with our youngest babies, Zephaniah and Jael although Layla and Kelsey seem to be getting it a lot too. This has been pretty hard on us. We have been to the doctor numerous times and there is really nothing we can do about it except treat the symptoms and wait it out. All of Eldoret is in a very dry season and we live right off of a dirt road so the dust often makes people have a bit of a chronic cough. Please pray for healing for all of us. We are eager to be well again. We have taken steps to planning our next trip to the United States. We are planning for the beginning of August so if you could pray for the preparation of this trip. It is quite expensive to fly 5 people across the world. We are excited to see family, friends and the churches that support our ministry out here. Also we are excited to introduce Jael to everyone since she has never been to the US. We are 3 months into renewing our Work Permit for Kenya. This is what makes it possible for us to stay and serve in Kenya. They are giving us a bit of a hard time this time. It is taking longer than usual. Please pray with us for a faster process and for favor in immigration. They have been trying to kick westerners out and give all the jobs to Kenyans and in doing this they make it really hard for us to stay here. Pray for open doors, reasonable officers who are overseeing these processes and for patience for us. It gets a bit frustrating. Thank you all so much who pray for us and support us. We are so grateful. The Lord uses you to make this ministry possible. Josh, Kelsey, Layla, Zephaniah and Jael.
