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 .

Todays news
Our family has just spent 4 months in the States traveling to many, many churches. we got to visit family friends and were able to be ministered to by Calvary Chapel Bangor, Maine. We left in the end of September and came back to Kenya for a another 2 year tour of duty. The last few months have been a time of ministry associated with travel. Over 15 churches and 8 different states later our time in America has come to an end. God has allowed us and enabled us to minister, fellowship and be ministered to. It is a bittersweet thing to be going back; leaving family and friends, brothers and sisters and our home church. It is however a thrill to go continue what God has for us in Kenya. God has been speaking in many different ways on the direction of Gospel for Kenya mission and we are looking forward to sharing the Gospel and making disciples of all nations. I know without Gods leading and the support of our donors and prayer partners our ministry would not be possible. I wish I could tell you all the stories of ministry in the past 4 months both in America and Kenya. I want to thank all of our donors and prayer partners. I believe we will never know the extent of what our prayers and financial giving have accomplished until we get to heaven. Thank you very much. NEEDS: I am always asked about the needs of our family and the ministry, so I will be writing our needs in the newsletter that will be going out to our contacts. Due to the extent of are travel we go back to Kenya in the red. I would ask that you pray about how God would use you in this area. Also we need prayers, those who will sacrifice some of there time to pray for Gospel for Kenya, Calvary Chapel Eldoret, and the Lawrence family. I can’t tell you how much we appreciated all of you who prayed for Jael the day that she drown. Also we need labors in Kenya pray that God would send labors to his Harvest.
