Prayer Request Update Feb 2018

The Door God Has Opened for the Gospel
to be Spread 
throughout the Nation of Kenya!

Peggy and I just returned from a trip to Tanzania and Kenya where 23 Spiritual Leaders and spouses were trained in ministry and in the use of the Story Cloths. While we were there, we met with an Education Officer and a District lead teacher from Kajiado County, Kenya, to share with them how we are able to train teachers to use the Story Cloth to teach the Bible in their classrooms (something the government of Kenya not only allows, but is required to be done in the classroom!) We also showed them how the stories are used in teaching vocabulary, math, and science. After reviewing the material we gave them, including the lesson plans, song sheets, coloring sheets and certification process, they said this: We want you to come in June and teach one teacher from every school beginning in our Northern District. When we asked how many that would be, they said, “100!” For an idea of the impact this can have, please look at the picture below:

Now multiply what you see in this school by 100 schools x 9 months the children are in school, and you have the potential impact that the Story Cloths can have in just the Northern District of Kajiado County, Kenya.

We began this process in the Narok County of Kenya in 2014 where hundreds of teachers were trained to use the stories in their classes. Now God has opened doors in Kajiado County! This could lead to over 7 million children in Kenya having the gospel of Christ shared with them through the stories over the next several years. Only God can provide what will be needed, and He will work through His people to do it. Please pray with us that the funding will be provided to pay for the expenses of 100 teachers attending 2 day workshops in Kajiado County Kenya in June. This will include their travel, meals, and materials with some teachers being provided room accommodations overnight. We estimate the expenses for this will be $100 per teacher. We are praying that churches, mission groups, and Sunday School or Bible Study classes will help us by sponsoring teachers. In addition to the expenses for the workshop, we want to provide every teacher with a Story Cloth, summary book, song sheets, and lesson plans, not only for themselves, but enough to train the other teachers in their schools. We estimate that the expense for doing this will total another $5000 to $7,000. Will you pray with us that as we commit this to the Lord in our prayers and willingness for Him to use what He has given us, He will provide? Psalm 37:5, “Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, and He will do it.” NAS95 Pray also that our Lord will provide all that is needed, not only for the needs, but also for the opposition we will surely face. Paul said in 1Corinthians 16:9, “for a wide door for effective [service] has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.” There is no doubt that God has opened this door, and His Word says, “Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass.” (1Thessalonians 5:24 NAS95)

Seeking His Face, Sharing His Grace,
