Opening a New School

We opened a new school this week in the Mt Elgon area. Please pray for these students continued excitement, in-depth understanding, and a zeal to teach others the Word of God. Everyone is eagerly awaiting their new text books. There was a little black board trouble the first day though! We had to lay the thing on it’s side and… (more…)

June Ministry Update

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, The trip back to Kitale was quite exhausting, but praise the Lord, I am home safely. Nairobi isn’t a good place to be and driving out of it is just about as dangerous, so thank you for your prayers. I have been back home for three days now, have unpacked, and begun working.

Kaptama

After that, if the women there want to start a biblical foundation class, I want to teach them. It is a very long drive… (more…)

Making New Friends while Saying Goodbye to Others

Today I said goodbye to my company. They have begun their 40 hour journey home. However, as they leave, I will have the pleasure of building friendships and relationships with those that they leave behind. After Lisa and I spoke at the women’s conference, the church  asked me to come and lead a bible study for the women! What we preached was… (more…)
