A New Class Is Settling Into The Work Of The KSOP...


Greetings from Kenya School of Preaching. We pray you all are doing well in the Lord.

The weather is cool here for us, while very cold for the natives of Kisumu who are used to hot weather. We have unusually heavy rains in October accompanied by power blackouts which seem to be normal, yet very disturbing.

We are happy to report that all 20 new students that were selected out of 47 applicants are settling down well in Kisumu. They have been in class for two weeks now studying the New Testament Church, Genesis, Life of Christ 1, Acts, and Homiletics.

Already, the impact can be seen. Some of the students who had been trained in liberal schools, where they were taught errors and earned titles like overseers / pastors, could not hide their joy at how the Bible is accurately divided at KSOP. We are very excited with the applications we received. As a result of the good influence and work being done by the first class, our labors are not in vain. The students are very open minded, eager to learn, uproot the errors in their service to God, and the errors in their home congregations.

Elias began evangelizing with the new students and we expect good result from the work. To get better results we will need study materials, tracts, and correspondence courses to reach many souls.

On October 9th I traveled to Arusha, Tanzania for the Leadership conference where I was one of the speakers.  This was a great opportunity for me to recharge my battery that was draining fast while listening to very able speakers in attendance. Also, I shared great moments with other ACSOP alumni who are all in the Lord’s field working and the production is great.

I had a wonderful time with Cy Stafford, Stephanie and Granny. He is a father and mentor to me, among others. I was really inspired and encouraged by the wisdom and vast experience he shared with me. I received two boxes of books for the KSOP library, even though we are not even a quarter way with the school library.  

The week I traveled to Arusha, I was attacked by malaria and I got medicine. When I came back home I got a heavy malaria and typhoid attack again. The doctor said the medicine I was given first is no longer effective for some malaria. Keep me in your prayers.

We thank all of you for your prayers and assistance to keep laboring in the Lord’s field. God bless you more.

His worker,
Charles Ogutu
