Kenya Update April 5, 2012

We are half way through our Spring session of the Maasai Vocational Pastors Training in Kilgoris Kenya. Due to a change in the school schedule mandated by the government of Kenya we are having to reduce our training to one week and one day. But it has not dampened the anointing!

Kathleen Gage from Houston Texas joined us again this trip to continue teaching Hearing The Voice of God, while I am teaching The Life of Christ. We current have over 65 pastors in attendance from all across Kenya.

I continue to be amazed at the hunger and thirst for God and His Word I sense in the meetings. To see men and women sit from 9am till 6pm each day taking in every word you speak is both humbling…and addicting.

I am reminded how Paul when writing to the Corinthian church, as he cam to the end of 1 Corinthians 16:15 spoke of the house of Stephanas and how they had “…addicted themselves to the ministry of the saints…”

I believe we must be addicted to prayer. When the disciples asked Jesus to teach them something, they didn’t ask Jesus to teach them to cast out devils, they didn’t ask Him to teach them take an offering; they asked Him, teach us to pray like John taught his disciples. Prayer is the greatest weapon we have as New Testament believers…and yet we do so little of it some times.

We must become addicted to His Word. The entrance of His Word gives life, light and understanding. With all the different translations available today, CD’s and MP3’s there is no reason for us not getting the Word in our lives.

We must become addicted to His Presence. I’m glad I am addicted to the Presence of the Lord! I love to praise Him, and worship Him and to be with others who are hungry for His Presence. Once you’ve tasted of the joy and peace that comes from being in the center of His will, nothing else will satisfy!

Thanks for your prayers and the financial support you have given us to bless these pastors and to provide for them a chance to grow in the faith and in the knowledge of the Word. I promise you, God keeps perfect records.

He never forgets what you make happen for others. He will make sure something good will happen for you!
