Greetings Fellow Workers,
We greet you all in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. God continues to answer your many prayers on behalf of His mission work here in East Africa. We are thrilled as to the upcoming Andrew Connally School of Preaching graduation. We will graduate nine with Master’s degree, six with Bachelor's degree and two with Associate degree. In keeping with God’s will; “The things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, entrust these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also” (2 Tim. 2.2), God is spreading and giving the increase in some mighty ways. Here are three short comments from two of our graduates and one student who will graduate on the 24th of this month:
“I did send two students to go and help lead bible classes and worship services at the young revived church Nyamasare 80Km away for three consecutive Sundays and the result was marvelous, three baptisms on their third visit and also helping them stop errors of women leading singing and making denominational testimonies during worship. We pray this school will be capable as it train men to also send them out occasionally to the congregations around western Kenya to evangelize and fight liberalism which is prevalent here as in other areas. Tomorrow, Nov 11th, 6 students from KSOP will be leading bible classes and worship services at three different congregations, Butere church, Kaila church and Umuri church....We were very much privileged in the past weeks to have Bob Turner of BVBID and Cy Stafford of ACSOP Arusha visit us at the school. It was inspiring, for the new students to hear Turner speak on Leadership and be with Cy who has played great role in molding us through his vision. In His Service, Charles Ogutu”
“Hello brother, two have become new creatures in Christ today. His servant, Yusuph Mdaki”
“I started my journey from school and reached Katesh where I was met with an audience ready to hear the Word of God. The next day, Sunday, one soul decided to obey God’s Word and is now our new brother in Christ. His name is Imanuel Darema, married with children who are near the Kingdom. My expectation is that there will now be a new congregation. Our hope is that the ten widows and orphans (who many are HIV positive) will come to know the Lord and His Church. Your brother in Christ, Paul Muhendi”
Yes, the power of God’s Word is having its intended affect in the lives of many here in East Africa. This is made possible largely due to your prayers and support and we thank you, we thank you with all our being.
Time draws near! We have purchased our airline tickets (in faith) and if the Lord wills, we will arrive in the States on December 2nd. We have been blessed with a donation of $3,000 that will cover most of the $5,000 needed in order to come report on God’s mission work, raise the needed funds that this work might continue and yes, see our nine grand children (and their parents). Yes, we are excited about the good being done, coming to see our dear friends and loved ones, yet we leave with troubled hearts. There is much to do and so little time!
My brother and my sisters in Christ, we need your help. We need to raise $20,000 in the next 20 days that God’s work might not be hindered. We are so very thankful for the $5,000 already donated. Please pray, purpose and provide the need that souls will not go wanting!
In Him, Cy, Stephanie, Granny & Allie
