This is the fourth Friday Ministry Update message in a series which I’m sending out to highlight different portions of this ministry. Email will continue to be the most effective and receive the highest priority in this ministry, but God has also led me to develop relationships, through my travels to Africa, with several individuals who are truly giving their all for the sake of the gospel.
The nature of this ministry allows me to be in contact with people from all over the world. I have found that the truths of God’s Word can speak into all different cultures and all different situations. This has allowed us to effectively minister to people in a surprisingly large number of countries. However, and this was a difficult lesson to learn, effective direct assistance cannot be accomplished outside of an ongoing relationship. Suffice it to say that the complications are greater than we can imagine. Therefore, I am currently working with three individuals, whom I now call friends, who have demonstrated a multi-year consistent relationship with Christ and commitment to ministry. The first two were highlighted in Parts 2 and 3 of this series at:
In this message I want to introduce you to pastor Thomas who ministers in one of the many impoverished areas of Nairobi. I have worked with pastor Thomas for the last six years and have been inspired by his steadfast faith through many difficult situations. This summer, pastor Thomas was ministering in a church and school which was in great need of repair. In fact, the building had been condemned and was to soon be torn down.
For a relatively small amount of money we were able to help pastor Thomas construct a new facility which allowed the ministry to continue.
I truly appreciate my friendship with pastor Thomas and I pray we are able to work with him on more projects in the future.
Have a Christ Centered Day!
