The Country Comes to Town event in Portadown a week ago on Saturday was a successful day for the FML stall and we are thankful for the opportunities we had on that day. It was especially exciting to have a surprise visit from prayer partners from England whom we have only met once before. We were delighted that they came to see us at the stall and we continue to appreciate your faithfulness in prayer for us.
We thank God for a few more bookings that have come in for meetings and we look forward to sharing our work in the different venues. We are praying about ways to make the work better known among Churches in the UK and would ask you to share our ministry with your Pastors and congregations if you are able or send us details of your Church if you think they may be interested.
Please pray for Joyce in Uganda as she urgently needs help to mark the many lessons that have been submitted. Please pray that she will be led to the people of God's choice to help her.
Moses also needs help with marking in Nakuru. There are a few people who may be potential helpers. Please pray for him as he communicates with them and also remember them as they complete our application forms and then for those of us in leadership who will make the final decision as to whether to accept them or not.
Please pray for Pastor Aringo as he continues to run the office. It takes time to organise and distribute the lessons to many areas and we pray for him and his team of helpers in Nairobi. He has to deal with many difficult and sensitive situations so we as that God will give him much wisdom.
Pray also for Dan. He is taking a short break from the work in Nakuru as he completes some studies alongside his work, but he is very keen to resume again in the near future.
Lessons have been slow moving in the Kisii area of Kenya and we ask that you pray for this area in particular and some various issues we are facing there.
Please continue to pray for those who are studying on our email course. There are only 2 more assignments left and this first course will be completed. It seems more students drop out with each assignment which is disappointing, but we Praise God for those who are continuing faithfully with their studies. We pray that what they learn will be of benefit to them in their ministries.
As ever we ask you to continue in prayer for all financial needs of the ministry. Following discussions with Pastor Aringo we all feel that he needs to travel to each area of ministry and meet with representatives. Please pray that God will provide for this. We are also keen to get flights booked again for our next trip and are considering various dates. Please pray for God's provision.
As I am typing this blog, I am, at the same time, communicating online with a Pastor in Kenya. We are chatting together about the Church that he oversees. We visited it when we were in Nairobi in December. It started with just children coming to a Sunday School, then it grew to a small church, and just now he is telling me that they plan to build a Church building as the congregation has grown so much......and all through their ministry to children. God is so good and the work amongst the boys and girls is so vital. Pray for these servants of God as they serve HIM and also for the children as they continue with our lessons.
Asante Sana (Thank you in Swahili) for continuing to stand with us in prayer.
