Youth Conference

We had a blast at Cornerstone’s Annual Youth Conference. Our topics were Counting the Cost of Following Jesus and Putting on the Full Armor of God. I had the pleasure of hosting some of the high school girls at my home who came for the conference. Although we had a great time, there were some things in my house that really left… (more…)

Reaching the Next Generation

In Kenya, although people in their 40s and 50s seem to have a Christian/religious culture, many of the young people my age are caught up in the world, partying, and pursuing materialism.

I asked him what part of that day’s ministry outreach had touched him the most. He  told me the thing that moved his heart the most… (more…)

Pray for a Firm Grounding in the Word

My students and I set out for door to door evangelism, looking for new students my students will teach. One thing that breaks our hearts is how many people there are in Western Kenya who claim to be Christians, and go to church, but have never heard the gospel. Almost all of the people I have spoken to believe they… (more…)
