Establish The Work
Psalm 90:16-17 Let your work be shown to your servants and your glorious power to their children. Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands upon us; yes, establish the work of our hands!
In the time since the 1st Annual Kenyan Leadership Conference in Nakuru, the Lord has shown Himself faithful and powerful among each of our ministries in Nyamarambe, Nakuru, Nyamira, and Bungoma County (Kimilili). Through the investment of several people into this amazing work of the Lord, we have been able to purchase 2 Public Address systems; one for Rigena Christian Church in Nyamarambe and one for Powered by Christ Ministries in Nakuru.
These PA systems have increased the impact of our ministries into the community by facilitating larger events and strengthening our affiliated churches. Church attendance and membership have grown as well as the number of people reached at every gathering with many testimonies of salvation and deliverance among the people. It has been reported that the atmosphere in these communities is changing, that there is a lingering presence of the Lord. To Him be the Glory. Continue reading
Isaiah 34:1 Draw near, O nations, to hear, and give attention, O peoples! Let the earth hear, and all that fills it; the world, and all that comes from it.
Since May 12 of 2017 when I received the first email from Pastor Jared Osongo requesting his church become an affiliate ministry of Fellowship Riders, the Lord has moved quickly to call other 3 other pastors to focus on sharing the Gospel with the rider community in Kenya, the Boda Boda. In the past 11 months, we have seen and heard testimonies of salvation, healings, and deliverance among this group of people often overlooked or viewed with suspicion and fear as they are a rough group, often engaged in criminal activity. But God…
God has a different plan for the Boda Boda. He sees these, who need His salvation and freedom from the bondage of sin, as an army He can equip with His righteousness to go throughout their land taking the Good News of Jesus.
By providing PA systems to the 4 pastors working among the Boda Boda, it will be possible to expand the reach of these ministries into the community. Our 2nd PA system was purchased last week for Pastor Samuel Mbuchi in Nakuru and he is planning his first crusade soon.
While Pastor Samuel was purchasing his PA system, Pastor Joseph; himself a Boda Boda and Elder at Alleluiah Sanctuary of Praise in Kamukuywa Township; was leading a crusade in Namawanga Township using the PA system from the church. As a large number of Boda Boda and others gathered, the local police chief, fearing a disturbance “alighted from his car” to find the Boda Boda preaching the Gospel. This was such a spectacle that individuals and public transportation vehicles would stop to take pictures and to be a part of what the Lord was doing. There are reports that as many as 89 people received salvation in Jesus.
Much has been accomplished by the hand of the Lord and His Holy Spirit among the Boda Boda. As this work continues, we prayerfully ask you consider supporting these pastors with prayer and donations as we still need PA systems, tents, and chairs to expand the work of the Kingdom of God.
