We thank God that He gave the gift of His Son to die for us and take the punishment of our sin. We give thanks at this Easter that we worship and follow a LIVING Saviour and we are glad that it is this LIVING Saviour that we can share with the boys and girls of Kenya and Uganda. Pray that many of them will come to know Him as their personal and LIVING Saviour.
Moses had an encouraging meeting in Nakuru with centres enrolled on our course and was able to distribute many lessons. Joyce also had an encouraging time in Western province, Kenya and distributed lessons there. They were also delighted. Joyce is responsible for Western as well as Uganda. Pastor Aringo, Mike and Evans continue to be busy in the office and we ask you to pray for them and our other representatives.
Billy and May who faithfully helped at our market stall continue to value your prayers for them as Billy is unwell. We trust that God will be very close to them in these days.
The market was unexpectedly busy on Friday....I think the cooler weather encouraged people to stay at home rather than go away for the weekend. Saturday was much quieter, but all in all we were happy with trade over the two days.
Please continue to pray for us at the market and as we travel around collecting items for sale and making deliveries. William has found a trailer which he feels would be very suitable for this part of the work and we are just praying that God will provide for this if it is His will.
We also value your prayers for our needs over the next few weeks. By the beginning of May we have to pay the final balance on our flights for July and the next installment on the land is also due in May. In total we need a little over £3000 to meet these needs. We thank the Lord that because He is LIVING He knows our needs and hears our prayers!!
Please remember our Child Protection course and pray that we will get back on track again as problems with my laptop and email has affected us badly. The laptop needs to be replaced but we thank God that we have got good use out of it for the past 6 years so we have no cause to complain.
As well as purchasing the 50 Bibles in Nairobi this week, we were also able to give 50 Bibles which had been purchased here to a friend of ours who was travelling to Kenya yesterday, so we thank God for making these available. Continue to pray that we will be able to purchase more Bibles on a regular basis to keep up with the demand.
A LIVING Saviour and a faithful Saviour and one we are humbled and honoured to serve both here in the UK and in Africa. We trust that as you continue to follow this blog, it will be with the genuine purpose of praying for us and the work of Feed My Lambs and not just for the latest news. We continue to appreciate your support.
