Equipping the Body of Christ

If you remember the story from last month of how ten women went and began teaching 1,600, these ladies are back at it again! Not only have they continued teaching these, but Ruben (their OT survey teacher), asked two of them to train a group of men and women from a near by village who wish to do the same… (more…)

220 Gave Their Lives to Jesus

I was overwhelmed with joy to visit the ladies class up in the mountains this past week! After being away three months in the States, I came home to find them teaching a total of 1,600 people–mainly children.

The 10 that Multiplied to 1,600 Disciples

Being out of school isn’t always that much fun,… (more…)

The Average School in Kenya

In Kenya, public schools are usually not much more than cinder-block buildings and mud huts. We visited the local school today and found over 600 children! It’s amazing to think such a small community could have so many children. I counted 6 teachers while I was there. It is amazing how every child behaves himself.  

Building a Home

Mike Duff’s Team from New Mexico arrived today and they are constructing house 6 at Mattaw. Many of the children were quick to help. They wanted to build a place for other orphans to live. A place for children who are living a miserable life that is now forgotten in their past. Without even being asked, Franco jumped in and started moving… (more…)
