PROGRESS IN KAKAMEGA, KENYA
On the 4th April we bade farewell to Dr Lindsay Wilson from Castlederg FPC who spent two weeks in Kenya as a speaker at the Pastors' Conferences in Mbale, Uganda and then in Kakamega, Kenya. Dr John McKnight has been conducting these conferences for a number of years and this year both Malcolm and Lindsay were speaking on the topics of "Studies in Galatians" and "Personal Evangelism" respectively. Dr McKnight spoke on "What happened at Calvary?"

Around 40 pastors and students who attend the Bible Study conducted by Evangelist Patrice attended the conference. One of the student’s texted Patrice to inform him that he found the conference very instructive as he realised that he was not truly saved but had finally become a child of God. A book table was also made available to those attending which seemed to be much appreciated.

The bookshop is continuing to attract new customers and the Bible Study continues to grow steadily and now has some young women attending. In addition to the Bible Study held, fellowship meetings are held two nights per week during term time in the houses where some of the students live. The end of the University term was marked with a supper for the students.

Pastor Andrew recently moved to a new house and his two boys are now attending a new school. He sought permission from the principal for an opening in the school to teach or to take a service. On Friday mornings he takes the PPI (Programme of Pastoral Instruction) classes and has received permission to commence a Sunday Morning Service at School after Easter.

We are grateful to the Lord for allowing these men to expand their ministry. In addition, they both set up a book table in local markets. Recently a young man from the Bikeke congregation has been assisting Andrew in the book table ministry. Pray for this young man as he seeks God's will for his life.

April is the month when children are on their Easter School Holidays. It is customary to organise Vacation Bible Schools during this time. This year Mercy, Andrew's wife, is running a week's meetings in Bikeke and Benson Osundwa, a teacher is taking charge of the week's meetings in Nyaporo. Malcolm and Alison have both been asked to speak at the Parent's Days in various churches when the Sunday School Exam prizes are distributed.

The LTBS broadcasts continue to be aired weekly with some response from listeners. During the time of the Pastors' Conference, Malcolm, Lindsay and Patrice went to visit a station outside Kakamega with a wider broadcasting area. On their visit they were interviewed live and each man had a great opportunity to promote the ministry and Patrice reinforced the message speaking in the local Lughya language.

A Men’s Conference was convened in Nyaporo on Thursday 18th & Friday 19th April. The speakers covered the subject of Salvation, Tithing, the Family and Marriage. Click Here to see more photos of the events.

God's Spirit is moving at this time in Kenya. Many requests are coming in for more teaching, churches to be opened and literature to be made available. The harvest is truly plenteous, but the labourers are few. Pray that God thrusts forth labourers, both Kenyans and those from our churches at home.
