To all of our praying friends

10 Jul 2013

Thanks so much for your prayers for my knee replacement surgery. After 3 months of recovery I’m happy to be getting around almost normally. It has been slower than I would have hoped, but thank God that there were have been no major complications! Also, Sherry will not need a cornea transplant at this time. She still has a couple of other health issues which we are working through, and would appreciate continued prayer for her.

Meanwhile, over in Kenya, God is blessing! An inspiring report from the remote Northern area of Kenya, where Peter and Rose Katonga are serving: Every Sunday about 100 adults and over 200 children gather under a tree for services in Natala Village near Laisamis. Ethic animosity is an ongoing problem in this area. Recently, a young ‘warrior’ was killed by another ‘warrior’ from a neighboring clan. Pastor Katonga was called to perform the funeral. Just as they finished the burial an armed raiding party decesended upon the scene. Pastor Katonga related the terrifying story in detail, but bottom line: God delivered them from harm! He quoted Psalm 23:4, which was literally fulfilled in his life that day. We have deep admiration for our courageous brethern, like Peter and Rose, who have been willing to leave their familiar homes and follow God’s calling into the wilderness with the Gospel message of reconciliation!

Similarly, Andrew & Abby Lettsome, our young missionary partners in the Mt. Kenya ministry, have left the comforts and safety of America focusing heavily on unreached area of Northern Kenya. They continue to show the wisdom and commitment of seasoned veterans! It’s hard to believe that they’ve only been on the field for two years! Right now they need a rugged 4WD vehicle for their ministry. The cost of even second-hand 4WDs in Kenya is staggering. We would be grateful for your prayers for this need.
