Lift up your eyes, and see that the fields are white for harvest…

liftUpYourEyes-1Seeing with “spiritual eyes”, Rigena Christian Church sponsored its first group ride for the “Boda Boda”; riders who use their motorcycles to transport passengers and cargo; this past Saturday, September 2.  They rode a distance of 50Km and enjoyed a time of fellowship, teaching, and dining together. 

Pastor Jared has said that they have 3 more riders who have asked to be included in the next “rally” and the church will be conducting a Bible Study for riders every other Saturday with a ride on alternating Saturdays along with a Youth Camp in December that will include activities for riders in this community-wide event.

liftUpYourEyes-2From this first gathering, Pastor Jared said that the riders had requested Bibles in Kisii, their native language, as none of them owned their own Bibles.  We will be sending money to purchase Bibles in Kisii town, the nearest large city, at a cost of $13.00 each. 

Pastor Jared has also asked we send more Fellowship Riders patches, caps, flags, decals, Bike Blessing stickers, and any other materials to help bless these who come and to create a community of riders “Powered by Christ”.  How refreshing and exciting it is to see how the Lord is moving among these, our new Brothers and Sisters. 

liftUpYourEyes-3As a friend from Nigeria said, “It is hard to pray and fast in America.  In Nigeria, not so much.”  

For these whom the Lord has put in our path with little in worldly possessions, yet rich in the things of God, please consider blessing them by clicking Donate Online.  One definition of blessing is “God’s provision that allows or helps you do something”. 

Let’s buy stock in the Kingdom of Heaven by investing in things Eternal.
