Two of our three directors, Brad Gautney and Brian, and friend, Rustin Hamilton, recently were in Kenya to assess how they could help with those suffering from the drought. An area fallen through the cracks of the government and NGO relief were the people of Turkana. These three chose to go there and with the help, support, and prayers of so many were able to distribute 40,000lbs of food immediately. Through Global Health Innovations and some other NGOs, we will be able to continue getting supplies to the people who need them.
Brian speaks of the joy that spread across the faces of those waiting and hoping for someone to reach out to them. This video by Rustin says it all http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P-NVQPFfLR0&feature=share
God be praised!
Anyone that knows me knows my passion for Africa, especially those lost and now I give thanks to God that we will be returning to Swaziland to start a new Manna project. The main thrust of the work is to reach the lost, equip them so they can tell their neighbor and countrymen the Good News of salvation through the blood of our loving Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ. To stay with them long enough to bring them to maturity without enabling them and then to go find new "men and women of peace" and start sowing seed all over again. The goal is to disciple people to GO and disciple people to Go and disciple people and so on. Churches planting churches, not limiting God by our lack of faith and limited vision but to dream "God Possible".
We go in to start the work September 13th, 2011. Please keep us in your prayers.
-Pray for "the men of peace" (Luke 10) that God is preparing before we even get there.
-Pray that we have courage no matter what the circumstances and that God give us wisdom and all we need to be faithful men and women in the harvest fields.
-Pray that we will not grow weary and that when our Lord returns He will be able to say "Well done, good and faithful servants".
-Pray for the people of Swaziland that many will come to be set free from sin.
