Dear Ministry Partners,
“Faith is God’s work in us: our faith, and our new relationship with God as believers, and all the divine gifts that are enjoyed within this relationship, were all alike secured for us by Jesus’ death on the cross” (J.I. Parker). Easter holiday is a great time to think and wonder at the love of God demonstrated at the cross. The result of the cross is the true sense of being bestowed the authority to be called children of God, and then the hope of wonder of how we shall appear when Christ appears, and finally the present requirement to purify ourselves before His coming (1 John 3:1-3).
The month of April was full of visitations and door to door evangelism during Easter Holiday weekend. We did manage to meet new faces and reach out to new homes that have been developed in the recent days. Some people responded to the gospel and others gave their worldly reasons for a consideration. But the greatest challenge is the effect of false teaching in Kenya. We had our greatest fellowships and service attendance during the month since most of the school kids were home on vacation. One of the American families that have been with us for almost a year just returned back to States after their work permit expired and we have been blessed by their involvement.
We praise the Lord for His work here at Elgon View Baptist Church. We praise the Lord for the approval of the church building plan. We praise the Lord for those saved and they will be joining the church by baptism.
Pray for our kids at school, our physical health, our safety and security (including the whole nation), completion of our home, our age-challenged parents, and Elgon View Baptist Church ministries.
Pray for Pastor Brian Wiita from Faith Baptist Church, Hermantown, Minnesota. Arriving on 4th July and leaving on 14th July 2014. Pray for Ankeny Baptist Church, Ankeny, Iowa. Arriving on 18th July and leaving on 30th July 2014. Pray that these 2014 summer mission teams will be well prepared in any way possible to serve God with their limited time here. Remember that, in all, it requires a lot of time and resources to plan and to effect that plan. “THIS IS AFRICA.” We truly look forward for their ministries with us.
We thank you all for prayers and financial support for our upkeep and toward the Church Building Project. Please be part of what God is doing around the world with prayers, with financial support, and with availing yourself. You can go, you can go and give, you can give, and all together we pray. Please send your support through Baptist Mid-Missions.
For a Full Reward,
Stephen & Edna Muindi
