...the harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few
It’s hard to believe that we are in the last month already, time is going so quickly! Here is a short update on what we have been doing over the past month.

- Patrice and myself are still able to have a booktable ministry in Kakamega town once a week. Here we continue to make some good contacts and give invitations to the bookshop and Bible study that is held in the bookshop.

- The Bible study continues each Tuesday and God has been blessing us each week. After the study we always give time for the listeners to ask some questions, the questions are always insightful and the students show that they are understanding what is being taught. Our numbers range between 15-20 each week. Pray that God continues to put it in the hearts of the students to keep coming.

- I mentioned in the last letter that we were planning a trip to a couple of other churches. One of which was Kisii. Patrice and myself along with another young man from the Bible Study made our way to Kisii on 6th Oct. It was our plan to visit a church in a place called Homa Bay, stay the night and then on the Saturday move on to Kisii. Unfortunately, the car radiator pipes had sprung a leak and instead of going on to Kisii we had to turn around, leave the car to a trustworthy mechanic and then take the public transport home.

Although the trip was not totally in vain, the visit to Kisii did not happen. However, Mr Patterson and Patrice plan to visit there before the month is out. Pray that they will have a blessed and beneficial weekend there.

- I will stay here in Kakamega instead of going to Kisii, this will be to continue the Discipleship course in Nyaporo which began on the 14th of October. The course is divided into topics. Each topic was, in theory, to be covered in a week. It seems that so far, each topic will take three weeks instead. It is good to take time with these things though, we would rather the truths were dealt with in detail rather than rushed through to get to the end of the course.

Of course, I am speaking through an interpreter which is neither the ideal or the fastest. So possibly when the course is taken over by Patrice, it will move along smoother and therefore quicker.

Please continue to pray for this course. Those attending have been attentive and keen to be taught. The numbers are gradually increasing which is encouraging for us, 32 were present at our last class.

- Each week, on the Wednesday, we have opportunity to go to Nyaporo again for the prayer meeting. It has fallen on me to speak at that meeting and then a time of prayer follows. We have also been encouraged with our time there. The topic over the past three weeks in the Discipleship Class has been on prayer. Pray then that the believers will be challenged and encouraged to use this means of grace and grow together as a church fellowship in this area.

- The bookshop is doing well, Rachel helps now and again when needed. You may, or may not, have heard that Rachel is just over 20 weeks pregnant now. A few weeks ago we were able to get a scan in town at the local clinic. So we are glad that everything seems to be going well and we would of course appreciate your prayers that that would remain the case.

So, we continue to thank God for His help and guidance over the last month. We are ever reminded that what we do here cannot be done by ourselves, we need His help on a daily basis. We also want to once again thank all of you at home for your continued prayerful support and for those of you who have sent messages or emails. We have been greatly encouraged.
No doubt our next update will be in person. Remember us as we travel back on the 1st December and God willing we will see you soon after.

In Christ,
David and Rachel

1Th 5:18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
