After the long productive December holiday, we are finally back to school and the classes have begun well.
During the December break, both Elias and I traveled to the villages to be with home congregations and joined two different gospel campaigns. I taught a one week class (Homiletics) in Sigomre and thereafter joined other brethren in Mumias for gospel campaign where 8 souls obeyed the gospel and one church planted. We had six former KSOP graduates leading the door to door evangelism groups. This is the first campaign where the ladies were fully involved in knocking doors and the outcome was great. At the other gospel meeting that Elias participated in, 5 obeyed the gospel. John Paul a former KSOP student reported 3 baptisms at Marega church.
19 students have reported back to school, one is very sick and admitted in hospital, remember him in your prayers. I am teaching the gospel according Mark and Hermeneutics I while Elias is teaching Pentateuch II and Homiletics. Jacob Omollo will teach a short course on Prison Epistle. We are off to great start but had a problem with the school printer which developed mechanical problems, the transfer roller unit broke down and it requires Ksh 13,700 to buy and replace. We also have been having persistence power blackout which makes it difficult to carry out training. The school is greatly in need of a power generator to help us in such times.
Just after one quarter in class, the KSOP students were really the busiest. Five of them led a youth meeting attended by 17 congregations and 3 obeyed the gospel. Two of them joined together in converting a denomination into the church of the New Testament with 10 baptized in Christ’s church. From Mombasa we had 2 baptisms, 9 further baptism from four congregations within Nairobi, Kisii and Kakamega. Three congregations were taught the truth on handclapping and church organization. These are congregations that have been having men who are not even married serving as pastors while married men serve as overseers. One student said, “We stepped on members especially the leaders toes” but we are excited they accepted to obey the gospel.
In my earlier report last year I praised this class as being very evangelistic, the report above speaks for itself. Just one hour ago they were knocking doors around the school and hope good will come out of the work.
Beloved, words may not correctly express our thanks and appreciation for the prayers and sacrifices you are making to train and reach the lost but it will be all joy to be told by the Lord, “Well done, good and faithful servant”
