Dear beloved: Pics above: Children at Living Water Home; boda riders lining up for fuel amid ongoing shortages
2 Corinthians 11:26 in journeys often, in perils in waters, in perils of robbers, in perils of my own countrymen, in perils of the Gentiles, in perils of the city, in perils of the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren; v27 in weariness and toil, in sleeplessness often, in cold and nakedness- v28 besides the other things, what comes upon me daily: my deep concern for all the churches. v29 Who is weak, and I am not weak? Who is made to stumble, and I do not burn with indignation?
Beloved, the Apostle Paul gave up a life as an intellectual and religious elite, a very comfortable life, to sacrifice all for service to Jesus. When he was blinded as he traveled on the road to Damascus, the Lord appeared to him to show him what he must suffer for the Lord's sake. The Apostolic anointing is the power to lay down the foundation of the gospel in lands and in ways that have never been accomplished before. But along with the one hundred fold blessing come the persecutions, the trials, and the sufferings. The overwhelming joy of seeing people come to Christ outweighs the momentary afflctions of the present age. The challenges of ministering in a foreign land one can only imagine until you get here and jump in the battle. My heart weeps daily for the people of Kenya, where life is such a grind and constant battle. So much of the government and culture is broken, where do you start to fix them? We start by preaching Christ and Him crucified! While boda riders trying to feed their families on profit of $5 per day line up for precious fuel, our children also line up hoping to be able to go to school. Any amount will help, it takes about $1,500 to send all of our children to school in primary and secondary locations. Pray about your part in this outreach. May God bless you as you pray.
