School Update – Praise Report

School Update – Praise Report

Two weeks ago I reported on the discouraging news that the Kenyan government had mandated that all schools in Kenya are to remain closed until January and that all students are to repeat this educational year.

Secure in His Presence

Secure in His Presence

Jeremiah 22:21

Jehoiakim was king of Judah just prior to the first Babylonian invasion in 605 B.C.. He had become comfortable in the security of the palace, and an alliance with the Egyptians made him feel even more protected.

Strain Toward the Vine

John 15:4-5

Our life in these mortal bodies will always fall short of God’s standard. From the moment sin entered the world, we’ve been unable to satisfy God’s requirement of perfection.

Listen as We Climb

Listen as We Climb

Genesis 22:9-11

In the message “The Mountain of Faith” we were encouraged to believe with a faith which is secure enough to surrender ALL to our Lord and Savior. We saw an example of this faith in Abraham as he was given a son and then told to surrender him as a burnt offering; “Take your son, […]

The Mountain of Faith

Genesis 22:2

When Abraham was over eighty years old, God made him a wonderful promise: “A son coming from your own body will be your heir. Look up at the heavens and count the stars – so shall your offspring be” (Genesis 15:4-5). Many years went by without any indication that God would fulfill this promise. Finally, […]
