Africa – Open your eyes and look to the fields, May 15, 2020
“My food,’ Jesus said, ‘is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to finish His work. I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.” (John 4:34-35) “Then He said to His disciples, ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into His harvest field.” (Matthew 9:37-38)
Suguta Valley, Kenya, Africa
Thanks to all those that are faithfully praying and supporting our co-laborers in the fields of central Africa. Thanks to our co-laborers in Tennessee and from Taiwan, that along with our co-laborers in the USA, have been standing along side these “workers”. Pastor Martin, the director of the ministry, lives in Kampala, Uganda where they are suffering because of lack of food because of the lockdown. They have been able to meet with groups of five and have seen 31 new believers come into church fellowship as they distribute the little food they have been provided with to those in the slum area where the church building is located. They are extremely grateful. Pastor Simon, who coordinates ministry to the tribes scattered along the north Kenya and south Ethiopia border, and his team continue to faithfully travel to minister to these people in the hot and harsh environment of the desert. The message was taken for the first time to the people in the Suguta Valley in Turkana County, Kenya. Whether in the streets of the cities, the small town centers or scattered villages or the many refugee camps, hospitals or prisons or the deserts of South Sudan or the jungles of the DRCongo, we deem it a privilege and responsibility to stand with our co-laborers. Many are blessed to live in countries that are provided with government assistance that help us through the current global crisis, but these workers are not provided that blessing.
“This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down His life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words and speech but with actions and in truth.” (1 John 3:16-18)
