We are thankful for God’s grace and faithfulness. Thankful for family and friends like you who have made it possible to do what we have been doing around the world this year.
It was an amazing trip to Kenya. A joy to teach a new group of church planters from all over Kenya, all active in ministry already. One is a bishop over a number of churches, several are pastors, others in other types of ministry, but all answering the call to be missionaries. They were so receptive of the teaching and eager to learn more. It was difficult to leave them at the end. I brought them some neckties and they were so appreciative.
Visiting the orphanages in Kisumu was special. These boys and girls are doing so well in their new homes. Viktoria and Gala (young women from Ukraine and Russia) are doing a fabulous job with the children. I brought the girls dresses prepared by the ladies at Made With Love here in El Dorado Hills – it put a big smile on their faces. They could not stop modeling them. Pray for these children, several are HIV positive and one has polio. Misha, originally form Ukraine, has done an amazing job in one year’s time, getting these started as well as the Missions School. He has recently started raising chickens, quail, rabbits and pigs, and planting vegetables to help feed the children and missionaries. While here I was blessed to see missions teams come from Slavic Churches in the US to help.
I closed my time with a 3 day evangelistic campaign in Nairobi, the capital. Heavy rains held back some of the people but those who came were blessed by God. A number of individuals testified of having received healing. The meetings were held at Dandora Cathedral, pastored by Bishop Peter Randa. The first night it took almost 2 hours to get there through the slums due to heavy traffic and bad weather. But it did not stop people from coming to Christ. The church rescues children who live and scavenge at the main dump nearby. I was lamenting the living conditions to the driver but he said they were not so bad off – they now have electricity and water. How we have a different perspective. We closed with a great powerful meeting on Sunday.
I was thankful to be home to celebrate Thanksgiving with our entire family.
Thank you for your prayers and support. Please continue to pray and give as the Lord leads you. We are supporting church planters in Africa and Eastern Ukraine as well as the 2 orphanages. And travel to these regions can be costly. We cannot do what we do without people like you who obey the prompting of the Holy Spirit to pray and support.
We are in transition due the sale of our home and must move very shortly to temporary quarters. Your prayers are greatly appreciated.
