Our blessed Savior and Friend, the Lord Jesus Christ, has been gracious with so many new converts. At Kennedy’s village (pictured below), there were seven once again for discipleship. We have had more come to Christ in Omoo, so there were 12 new Christians in the discipleship class. It has been a joy to watch Dickson, Henry, and Patrick discipling these new converts! We are using a material that is easy to reproduce and simple for Christians to use as they teach others.
I hope you will continue to pray for us as there is a growing burden to plant churches in these villages where we have converts. Most of them are on the discipleship lesson of following the Lord in baptism. So obviously the next step is to baptize them. During our recent prayer meeting on Saturday, Kennedy prayed that the Lord would provide a way for whole families to worship in church together. He rides his bike about 10 miles to get to church. Although that works for him, his wife and children are left at home. On Sundays, they hear the sounds of the Anglicans and Catholics going through their religious routines, while they can only sit at home.
Please pray that God will raise up some men to pastor these churches. I am particularly burdened about Kennedy’s village (which I will not even try to spell), Omoo, and Jiya. All of them need a church!
