August 2010 - Kenya, East Africa
We were thrilled when the offer of an all--expense-paid trip to Kenya was presented to us by students we had taught many years ago at Free Gospel Bible Institute. It was their desire that we come and see what God has done through those seeds planted in their hearts nearly 25 years ago.
Their testimony is that what they learned and experienced grounded them and motivated them to do what they have done for the Lord. These three men have been best friends and co-laborers in Kenya for many years. What we saw brought great rejoicing to our hearts.
Bishop Armstrong Cheggeh has planted and built many churches, and serves the 150 Fountain of Life fellowship of churches in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, and Burundi as its Presiding Bishop and General Overseer. He has over seventy ministers serving with him. His wife, Rhoda, was our student at Export.
Bishop Steven Kabachia and his wife Jennifer pastor the Agape Fellowship Center in the heart of Nairobi.
Their ministry is mainly evangelistic and church planting, targeting the unreached and the un-churched in East Africa. They have 120 Agape churches now, scattered all over Kenya, and they have started to enter other African countries.
Rev. Geoffrey Njuguna and his wife Elizabeth pastor the Deliverance Church at Langata, Kenya. The Deliverance Church is very active in evangelism, reaching out to the unreached. They have planted 6 churches around the Nairobi area, in the very needy slums, and far away in Garissa where they have also established a day care center near the border with Somalia.
Our lengthy journey took us from airports in Dallas, Texas, to Frankfurt, Germany, to Addis Adabba, Ethiopia, and finally to Nairobi, Kenya, East Africa. That in itself was an unforgettable experience! Although we had not seen Bishop Steven Kabachia in many years, we were excited to recognize him approaching as we filled out visa papers in the large Nairobi Kenyatta airport. We were amazed at the very developed city of Nairobi, and very blessed to have the first week of accommodations at the Grace Guest House.
God gave us multiple opportunities to minister and to experience His mighty power at work.
The Gospel is reaching, touching, and changing many lives in Kenya. We witnessed people from many parts of Kenya, from many of its 42 tribes, hearing the Gospel, praying, weeping, rejoicing, worshiping, speaking in tongues, and committing their lives to the Lord Jesus Christ.
There are 42 tribes
in Kenya and 25 of them are considered unreached with the Gospel. Pray
for the efforts of these ministries and others who are diligently
endeavoring to obey the Great Commission of Jesus. We found Kenya to be
a country of great contrasts...from the beautiful buildings and homes of
Nairobi, to the poverty of close-by slums.
Since the end of May 2009 the Lord has privileged us
