Dear Praying Friends,
With so much happening in the past 3 months it’s been difficult to catch our breath long enough to send out prayer updates! That’s not an excuse. You all are worthy of more frequent communication about what your investments of prayer and finances are accomplishing in East Africa. Thanks for your patience and continuing commitment to the “Daniels in the Lion’s Den!”
Just one of the high points of the many blessings we’ve seen in April and May is a wonderful Bible Institute session with two guest teachers: Pastor Kevin Jackson and our dear friend Mzee (‘honored elder’) Embree Bolton. Pastor Kevin taught taught through the whole Bible in 16 hours – no kidding! It was a phenomenal series! Mzee Embree blessed us with practical lessons geared to Christian teachers, as well as preaching in several of our churches. It was an honor to have these two men minister to 95 students in the Bible Institute sessions as well as dozens of other ministry leaders, and some of our local churches!
Some quick prayer requests:
- Terrorism in Kenya is rising rapidly. Two churches were bombed last Sunday in Eastern Kenya by Islamic extremists. Please pray for the safety of our School and Church ministries, some of which are new ministries reaching into Muslim dominated areas.
- Our physical health. I (Jerry) am scheduled for eye surgery in a couple of weeks. (BTW, one reason for less frequent prayer letters in the past couple of years is because of vision problems — and we are prayerfully expecting this surgery to turn that around.)
- Protection upon our missionary partners, Abby and Andrew Lettsome. They are expecting their first child imminently. Nairobi has acceptable medical facilities, but we don’t want to be presumptuous. So, please pray for Abby and the coming baby!
May God bless you for your concern!!
In God’s grace,
