Growth And Students Prepare...

Dear brethren,

We do thank the Lord for the good health He is giving to us. Thank you for your support. For you who are supporting us financially, may our God continue blessing you, and for those of you who only pray for this work, continue doing so, for through your prayers a lot is being done.   

Last week I had traveled to the central province of Kenya and a place called Karatina. Karatina is about 100 km from Nairobi. The Karatina congregation had a gospel campaign which lasted for five days, starting from 25th April to 29th April. Two people were added on to the Lord's body  and they will be congregating with the Karatina church of Christ. 

For me I left Busia Uganda on 27th April and traveled the whole night and reached at 9:00 am the following day and I joined them to go house to house. We were divided into four groups. In my group we visited four homes and we were warmly welcomed in each home we visited. It is our prayer that the seed we planted will germinate.

In the afternoon I was given a chance to teach one lesson, The Church's Responsibility to those who teach them the word of God. On Sunday during Bible class time, I taught about the importance of the Old Testament a Christian. These lessons are much needed here in East Africa as there are very few congregations that support their preachers and teachers. Most congregations where I have taught these lessons have changed and they are giving something to their preachers and that is a good sign of maturity.

These churches, after hearing a lot about the school, one of their members, who is currently living in Nairobi, is willing to come. He might join the school during the next quarter in the English class. The church of Christ that meets in Bujumbura city of Burundi have recommended brother Emmanuel Byamungu and he will be joining the school next quarter. He will be taking a place Samuel Akilimali from Congo, who will be leaving at that time.  

Brother Byamungu knows Kiswahili and French, so we will be putting him in Kiswahili class as none of us can speak French. After his arrival we will be having now students from Kenya, Burundi and Congo. Churches of Christ in Kenya High Lands in a town known as Nyahururu have asked me to speak to them as from 17th to 20th May. Right now we have one student from this area. Migori church of Christ in South west of Kenya will also be having their gospel meeting from 25th to 27th. They have also asked me to go and teach those two lessons. I do use my old Toyota Surf which needs a lot of prayers. It is very easy for it to break in the middle of no where. Pray for us as we travel.

May the Lord Bless you all. 

Yours  In Christ
