A Fast Pleasing Unto the Lord

Don Chapman said, "Pray as you can, not as you cannot".

When the Lord joined my family with that of Bob and Karen Rogers in February 2000, nobody knew what was lying ahead in the Ministry that the Lord had called us in. Early this year, Bob Rogers, Pat Palmer and Rev. Nixon Dingili-National Supt of Free-Methodist Church in Kenya visited to see the work of the Lord we are doing in Obunga Estate in Kisumu. I involved the three in praying for the sick, had a house fellowship, shared meals together and had an opportunity to minister to a group of people suffering from HIV/AIDS and had accepted their condition. We visited with them the small farm that the Group cultivates vegetables to supplement their income and also to provide for them meals. The team prayed with us and the Group members in the farm and then they left for the USA.

After much prayers and waiting upon the Lord, I one day got an e-mail from Bob telling me that the Lord was speaking to them on a personal way as a family to help this Group. I did not know what was happening until last week when Rev. Nixon Dingili came to Kisumu and shared with me the blessing that the Lord had given to this Group. It was $,1,000 donation cash to support this Group.

As we continue serving the Lord here in Kisumu, we are really grateful for all that you have done in person and as a group and as a prayer partner. I really thank God for you.

As we continue being partners in this Ministry, please reflect on the words of Isaiah 58:6-12

POP Kisumu Fighting HIV/AIDS in Kisumu!

HIV/AIDS is a reality and we are here to make every effort to fight this scourge. Through the efforts put together with our sister Church Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Carrollton, Texas USA, we were able to buy a water pump to St. Vincent DePaul Community Group which is a group made up of people living with HIV/AIDS in Obunga in order for them to use for irrigation in their farm. Thanks to our Sister Lauren Zaruba for all the efforts made.

Secondly, POP Kisumu in conjuction with our short term missionaries who visited us in June, were able to buy pairs of goats to Tido PLWHA group to help them get some income and also raise their living standards. The families and the entire group is really grateful to our missionaries and above all to God who made this possible. We give all the glory to Jesus our Savior.

POP- Like a mother caring for her little children!

1 Thessalonians 2:7
As apostles of Christ we could have been a burden to you, but we were gentle among you, like a mother caring for her little children.

Prince of Peace Ministries Kisumu-Kenya in conjuction with Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Carrollton, Texas, USA have been working hard to support New Life Homes in Kisumu. New Life Homes is a ministry that is taking care of abandoned children. Most of these young ones are HIV Positive. POP Kisumu has been trying to give them what they lack most-parental touch.

Obunga Estate Will Never Be The Same Again!

The history of Obunga is well known. Ask somebody in Kisumu about Obunga estate and the person will tell you of all the vices that are present in this community. Nobody will be willing to tell you that there is anything good. They will talk about local brew, drug abuse, child abuse and poor living conditions.

Thanks to God who says in his word that 'His ways are not our ways neither are His thoughts our thoughts'. The Lord is moving in Obunga in his own Mighty way and souls are accepting Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
You can be part and parcel of this change by particiapting through prayers or supporting financially.

A Place Where the Grace & Love Abound!

God At Work in Kisumu!
