“Expand the Kingdom of God locally and abroad through training, church planting education, and ministering to the various diverse needs of the poor.”
“Give to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to borrow from you.” Matthew 5:42
“Give to those who ask. What a clear command. Poses a challenge when folks ask all the time and the more you say yes, the more they ask. Trying to strike a balance between needs and wants, and filtering out manipulation and abuse. Please pray for Cindy and I to be discerning and exercise wisdom. There is an assumption we are rich because we are white Americans, but in actuality we have very limited resources.”
When I read this on our brother Marc’s Facebook wall, my mind reflected upon Peter’s words to the beggar in Acts 3:6: “I do not possess silver and gold, but what I do have I give to you….” Even though every financial request cannot be fulfilled, what we do have to offer is far more precious.
The Lord is doing amazing and miraculous things in Kenya. When Marc was in Mroki recently, he led six people to the Kingdom at one location alone. People are going through spiritual inventories, repenting, and are being baptized! Cindy is discipling women and having awesome progress in their village of Kiminini. Many of their neighbors are Kingdom Christians, and everyone notes how things have transformed since the Carriers have arrived. We even have new Kingdom saints who are branching out to different parts of Kenya. David, Joseph, Noah, and Godfrey, local Kenyans, recently went on a mission to the eastern part of the country. They were told to expect fifty pastors at a training conference, but found fifteen widows instead. Many were brought to repentance including a locally feared witch. A new fellowship has formed from that conference. Disciples are being baptized, home fellowships are being planted, and the gospel of the Kingdom is advancing as they go out two-by-two, Luke 10 style. It’s like the book of Acts coming to life in our time!
Here is yet another amazing story from the mission field in East Africa. God is glorified in this thrilling transformation in the face of great danger. But first, I must explain a title you will see in the below report, imam. “An imam is an Islamic leadership position, often the worship leader of a mosque in the Muslim community. Imams may lead Islamic worship services, serve as community leaders and scholars, and provide religious guidance.” Keep this in mind as you read below…

poor, I just read it Yesterday.
We have been secretly teaching this message to our Muslim families here and now
we have 17 Muslims converted by the Gospel of the Kingdom. We are baptizing
them tomorrow about 5 kilometers away from Muslim community. The strategy is
that after baptism we send them to our extended families far apart to ensure
that all our families have received this message. We are doing this
immediately. I will be back to ______ evening to collect my documents I left
with one of my friends .I will look for David and be back by _____. Now, though
this is happening, the challenge is that we have no resources until we get on
our feet again. This dear ones need bibles, Kingdom Expansion Series , tracts
and shepherds books. If KDM can be able to support us for the time being at
least 25 English bibles, 15 Swahili bibles and as many Kingdom Expansion Series
and Shepherds storybooks as possible just for once because we are organizing to
start buying ours with the funds that we are expecting. Please help us if this
email reaches the head of this missions. Otherwise, blessings.’
Follow up on the three Imams. Full confirmation. These are bonafide Imams of three mosques who publicly repented and were baptized. Many Muslims in attendance asked David to share this message with them Thurs. David is meeting with the new disciples today. I honestly have to believe this is an unprecedented historic event. Three in one day! Pray for all the members of these three mosques. This has caused quite a stir of confusion for these precious people. The mosques are in disarray. Pray for God's wisdom, love, truth, and protection as He continues to reveal Himself to the people of Kenya.”
