We are really thankful to God for how well the market stall in Portadown, N.Ireland has been doing over these past few weeks. January is normally our worst month as the weather is bad and people are counting their pennies after Christmas. However, not only has the mild weather helped to keep people out, but our sales have been excellent since Christmas, especially on Fridays. A large part of this is down to the blocks, coal, turf and firelighters available, but the items on the table have also been doing well. On Friday we sold quite a lot of African items. As we sell, we remember friends of ours in sell in a few different markets in Nairobi and also those we have met in other areas of Kenya. Please continue to pray that the market will continue to be a blessing to our work....not just in raising funds, but more importantly, raising awareness of our work and being a witness to those who lift the Gospel literature and CDs. A special event to be held at the market, is being planned by the local council for a few weeks time. We will know more about it after we have met with representatives from the council.
We thank God for His continued help for our team in Kenya. Continue to pray on for each child who studies on our lessons. We especially ask you to pray for the need for KJV Bibles as we are now need to obtain a large quantity of these. Enquiries to a few sources haven't made much progress as yet.
We also ask you to pray for us in the UK as we continue to prepare for meetings we have been asked to speak at over the coming weeks. We are thankful for another booking that came in this week.
Thank you for continuing to stand with us. We value your prayers.
