Dear Ministry Partners,
The context of Colossians 4:1-6 identifies the need for believer’s commitment to prayer and thanksgiving toward God, and wise lifestyle toward the unsaved in order to redeem time. It is here that Paul gives the imperative on the characteristics of our communication and the purpose of our message when he says, “Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer every man” (Col 4:6). “All we need for evil to triumph is for good men to keep silent long enough” (Edmund Burke). Remember that “the lips of the wise disperse knowledge” (Pro. 15:7).
The date is set and the tickets are already been bought and in our hands. The D-day is August 28, 2012. Our support currently stands at 90% and we need to raise about $630 before leaving the States in August. Please pray that the needed support would come in God’s time. We know that it would take two or three churches or individuals to keep us at 100% support level. Please pray for our monthly support or a one-time gift to the Building Project ($49,000 needed) or Ministry Vehicle ($7,000 needed).
As a family, we thank the Lord for the opportunity to see the great land of the Unites States. We had the opportunity to see the Pacific Ocean, the hills and the valleys of Utah, Oregon, Wyoming, and South Dakota. We came through Yellowstone, Devil’s Pillar, Mt. Rushmore, and the Badland. Our kids noted that nothing should be attributed to the devil and that there is no bad land but amazing and wonderful land that God created (Psalm 104). Pray for us as we travel to the East, namely, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New York, and Ohio. We trust that the Lord will give us opportunities of fellowship with other believers in the churches and with co-workers in ministry at GARBC Conference on June 25th – 29th 2012 and BMM annual conferences on July 9th-12th 2012. Please pray that the Lord will call more missionaries to labor in the mission field of Kenya with us. There are many opportunities available to serve God in Kenya. Please, COME HELP in evangelism, discipleship, training and planting more biblically sound churches.
“Pray for us that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ” (Col 4:3). Thank you all for your commitment to pray, encourage, and to financially support God’s work.
Together in His Harvest,
Stephen & Edna Muindi with Ian, Regina and Rena
