Dear Ministry Partners,
After our recent election on March 4th 2013, it was followed with a petition by the opposition group. The country was divided and the people were anxious for the outcome. We thank the Lord for the court ruling and for the political calm. Truly, secular leadership faces many challenges as well as Christian leadership because of secular methodology borrowed from the world system. Since democracy or congregational rule could be challenging, particularly when dealing with people with limited biblical knowledge and with cultural bend, we must be vigilant. We praise God for peace and thank you all for prayers before, during, and after election.
There have been heavy rains and floods countrywide with some sporadic insecurity in various parts of the country but we trust God for our lives on a daily basis for His sake.
We are thankful to the Lord for the Church ministry progress as we continue to develop leaders among those that the Lord has placed under our watch. There is a great desire to be involved in various ministry opportunities by our members and this is an encouragement to us. Many are involved in Sunday school and the children’s, Ladies’, Men’s, and Youth ministries; Sunday services, church choir, visitation, etc. Please pray that the Lord will continue to fuel the fire in the lives of true believers.
Our church needs a van (Bus ministry) to facilitate transportation of our people from various parts of the city. This will also help as we keep our focus on building the permanent church facility. If you’d like to help, please direct your financial support through Baptist Mid-Missions. Please pray for God’s leading as we face ministry challenges that could spur growth and encouragement. We thank the Lord for salvations and membership growth and opportunities that God gives us in the community through various ministries. We are able to interact with various people in the community from different backgrounds, cultures, and professions.
Come help us to grow God’s work. We are very excited for this summer as we look forward to what God will do with and through those who will be visiting with us from the States. We will be hosting the Finke family and also a very dear sister, Ashly McMillan. We thank the Lord for these dear ones and we ask for your prayer for them and for us and the church ministries here. This will help us to set the pace for the church families planning to join us next year for ministry and building program.
Pray for our children as they are back to school until July 16th 2013.
There are different jobs to be done, different offices to be filled, but we as Christians are able before our Master.
In God’s Hands,
Stephen & Edna Muindi
