By the time you receive this Newsletter, Pam and I will have arrived in Kenya for our final Schools of Ministry in Malava & Kilgoris for 2022. We are thankful to all our friends & partners for your prayers and financial support as we continue to reach, teach, equip, and release men and women into their God-given assignments across East Africa. For our final Newsletter of 2022, I want to bring you up to date on some of the things happening at Revival Now:
School of Ministry Report
Our Schools of Ministry continue to bless and encourage leaders across East Africa. While the Covid pandemic hindered us from being able to conduct these schools for almost two years, the students are now back and very eager to continue in their studies. Unfortunately, due to situations beyond our control, this December School in Malava will be our last school there. To be a better steward of the resources God is giving us, we are inviting the Malava students to join either the Kilgoris School or the Narok School in 2023, Again, this merger will help us to be better stewards of our time, our talent, and our finances. Please be in prayer for us as we navigate this transition.
Hope Centre Children’s Home Report
The Children’s Home continues to be a blessing to our twenty-seven students there, providing them with a stable home environment, three solid meals every day, a quality education, and a chance to better themselves in life. They faithfully attend the Nyangusu KAG Church each Sunday where they are actively involved in the ministry there. Thank you to Real Life Church, Moulton, Alabama and Red Cabin Bible Church, Bellville, Texas for providing a wonderful Christmas for the kids there.
We are 99.99999% completed with the Hope Centre Memorial Hall; we have just a few minor things to wrap up, then we will be looking at the possibility of beginning construction on a Guest House at Hope Centre. We have a church that has committed to helping us purchase two additional acres adjacent to the current Hope Centre property which will allow us to expand the ministry. It will be a tremendous blessing to be able to stay there with the kids when we minister in the Kilgoris area. Thank you to everyone who has contributed so far to this project and to those who are praying about supporting our kids at Hope Centre, please just be obedient to whatever God puts on your heart.
Revival Now International Ministries Kenya
In June 2021 while Pam and I were in a week of prayer & seeking the Lord, He spoke to us about establishing Revival Now Churches across Kenya. This is not something I have ever had a desire to do, but there has been such a cry for so many years from men & women who have completed our Schools of Ministry to continue to remain in fellowship with us, I could not ignore this any longer. Having a spiritual covering is a very important understanding with ministers, churches, and leaders across the African continent. In fact, the government in Kenya is mandating ministers be able to prove they have had some type of Bible training to keep their churches open.
Shortly after the Lord spoke this to us, mine & Pam’s General Overseer Dr. Henry Harbuck asked me if AEGA Ministries could operate under our leadership in Kenya. With his blessing, we have been able to ordain many pastors & leaders since 2021, and we currently have over 25 churches as a part of the Revival Now Kenya network. In December, we will be ordaining & receiving another pastor and church into the fellowship there.
Thank you for your continuing prayers and financial support of Revival Now’s world-wide outreach.
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
