Prayers for Missionaries in Kenya


Information from a missionary couple in Kenya that we have come to know and cherish....

The Nairobi Church of Christ is at this moment undergoing persecution. Land grabbers (They’ve been told they are operating with money from outside Kenya) have come by force and razed the squatter village outside the church’s main gate.

They brought in heavy digging equipment by night, and proceeded to excavate right up to their perimeter wall, undermining it and destroying the natural drainage. At one point they blocked their right-of-way.

They have managed to get a temporary injunction to sort out the environmental issues, although the grabbers are trying to intimidate them into giving up. Corrupt officials have “visited” them to apply pressure. We’d ask you to pray with us that they act only within God’s will and that God’s will be done.

This couple has been an inspiration to Thomas and I. Please pray for them as we know things work so different there. Please pray as well for God's hand of protection on them. Thank you.

In the joy of following our Heavenly Father, we sometimes choose to proceed with a whisper, a verse, or a downright shove...no matter how we follow Him, the momentum that follows is like nothing we've ever experienced before.

Join the momentum...it is a beautiful place to be. It's not always easy, but then the best things never are.
