Hunger Relief in Kenya
Dear beloved: Pictures above: left, food distribution at Mayoni church in Kenya; right, food distribution at Pastor's village
1 Kings 17:12 So she said (to Elijah), "As the Lord your God lives, I do not have bread, only a handful of flour in a bin, and a little oil in a jar; and see, I am gathering a couple sticks that I may go in and prepare it for myself and my son, that we may eat it, and die.: v13 And Elijah said to her, " Do not fear; go and do as you have said, but make me a small cake from it first, and bring it to me; and afterward make some for yourself and your son. v14 "For thus says the Lord God of Israel: The bin of flour shall not be used up, nor shall the jar of oil run dry, until the day the Lord sends rain upon the earth." v15 So she went away and did according to the word of Elijah; and she and he and her household ate for many days.
Beloved, the precious saints in our partner church and village in Kenya are suffering from hunger. Last week we sent money to purchase over 700 pounds of maize meal. I would like to continue to do that every week as the Lord provides. Please do not read this post as just another interesting post, these people are in a very difficult situation. I would like to challenge every person reading this to make a donation of $50 or more for food purchases. In the name of Jesus, we can provide the manna to them to get them to another day. They also desperately need rain on this spring's crops, so the crop will mature and there will be sufficient harvest to alleviate the hunger. Please pray about your part in helping these people.
