Dear beloved: One of the highlights of the Kenya trip was a visit to city hall in downtown Nairobi, where Dr. Joe Kayo holds an evangelism crusade every day of the work week in an auditorium inside city hall. Dr. Kayo is a famous evangelist and pastor who has ministered in Kenya and around the world for many years. He has conducted the meetings in city hall for several years now, and the response has been phenomenal to say the least.
Many of the people who come to the meetings are lawyers, judges, and heads of government and business, all dressed in suit and tie and proper business attire, and they come for one hour every day. Our host pastor Boniface Musoti took Doug McCary and myself down there the first day in Kenya, and we were introduced by Dr. Kayo as men of God from America, it was a thrill to see the Holy Spirit moving amoung the influential and decision makers of Kenya. The hall holds 1,600 people, and there was an overflow crowd the day we were there, and again a week later when we went back and Doug was given an opportunity to bring the message for the day.
We had the privilege to meet Dr. Kayo in a nearby restaurant after the meeting, where he gave us a warm personal welcome and asked questions about our ministries and the crusades we were undertaking in Nairobi. Beloved, this is what we need in America, meetings in every city right under the nose of city government, men and women who are committed to prayer and praise of the Lord right in the middle of their work day! Pray for Dr. Kayo for this vital ministry to continue and to get ever bigger, for the glory of God to take over every aspect of Kenya's government and business affairs. Acts 26:28, And King Agrippa replied to Paul, "in a short time you will pursuade me to become a Christian." v29 And Paul said, "I would to God, that whether in a short or long time, not only you, but also all who hear me this day, might become such as I am, except for these chains."
May all who hear the word spoken at city hall come to believe and serve the risen Lord. Pray for Dr. Kayo, and that the door will be open for me to speak there when I go back to Kenya. God bless you, in Christ, Jim
