This week before Thanksgiving Day I am reflecting on why I am thankful to God.

There are many reasons to be thankful. I am thankful that God sent His Son Jesus to save me from my sin and give me eternal life. I am also thankful that God has lead us to help the people of Kenya these last five years. I am thankful God has lead others to join Burning Plow in blessing the people of Kenya in tangible ways.

One example of God leading others to help is a small group of ladies in Texas who are holding a bake sale next Tuesday to pay for a new home for a blind boy and his family. When we shared the need God quickened them to send the money in advance to build a new house with a metal roof before the annual rains arrived. The house is now complete and the family can live securely for many years to come. Building houses is not our main work in Kenya, but when God shows us a need we must share it because that is part of why we are in Kenya.



God has given us so many blessings that we can not contain them. Burning Plow Ministries needs regular monthly support in addition to special gifts for projects like this one. You can make a difference!

May God bless you for your thankful heart!

The entire Burning Plow Team left for Western Kenya on April 30th! The car was packed full of equipment, so much so, two of our team had to take public transpiration to the first town.

We are still working on our report about our trip, but thought you might enjoy seeing some of the scenery we enjoyed while you wait for our report.


We really enjoyed sharing just a bit of the Kenya we experienced on our trip. More photos and reports of what we did will be coming soon!

Burning Plow’s Pastor Vincent lives near the Valentine Growers plantation near Nairobi. The plantation trades in long stemed roses, tea and coffee on a large scale.  Once a week, around 4:30 pm, Vincent meets with the guards before their shift beings.  The security guards hold a special place in his heart because he once worked as a guard himself. 

Vincent brings a message from the Word and the guards share their prayer requests. This last week one man said:

“We have never had such opportunity to share the Word of God as part of our preparation to begin our work.  I never knew that someone could study the Word of God away from the church and the pastor. I now know it is possible!!!”

Please pray for the safety of this team of guards.  Some of them do not have a Bible and they need more discipleship. Pray also for Vincent as he seeks to reach out to those who need Jesus around him. We are so proud that he does this as his personal outreach.

We are privileged to work alongside Kenyans who are serving God!

Simon, The Disciple in the Village

Rev. Vincent Mokaya is a great asset to our ministry in Kenya. He submitted this report to us and we wanted to share it with you. It is long but well worth reading.

Subukia, Kenya, East Africa

It is an honor and privilege for Burning Plow Ministries to welcome you to Subukia which is a rural village in the Rift valley of Kenya, East Africa. It is about a four hour drive from Nairobi, Kenya’s capital city. This is one of the villages where Burning Plow Ministries has scheduled to teach the Foundations of Biblical Faith, as well as doing evangelism through the Jesus’ film early next year.  I will be glad to share a brief story about how we got to know about Subukia.

Three years ago, Burning Plow Ministries helped plant a church in a village called Kawaida which is located in the outskirts of Nairobi. Besides the financial support to this church, Burning Plow Ministries began a discipleship program where the class on the foundations of faith was introduced to the new believers in the church. Most of the students in this class worked in flower/tea/coffee farms and they stayed together in houses provided in the farm. Therefore this provided an opportunity that the training be conducted right on the farms.

It was during a class session that Simon Tinga who works as a security guard was invited to the class. During that time, Simon had not surrendered his life to Christ. Therefore towards the end of the class, Rev. Don Cameron filled by the Holy Spirit, felt that he needed to talk with Simon about his relationship with Jesus. Immediately after taking a bold step of faith to talk with Simon, there was conviction and Simon made a choice; to surrender his life to Jesus and he became a believer that day. His wife later, after some days, surrendered her life too in a home fellowship. Simon later joined First Baptist Church as a new convert and has since been actively committed to the Biblical teachings and all other activities in this church. He has continued witnessing to many people about Jesus Christ.

He confessed about how most people in his rural village lack the Biblical truth and so need to be taught. Therefore, Burning Plow Ministries has since responded to this need and has planned to visit Simon’s rural village to teach the Bible in 2015.

Before Burning Plow Ministries takes a class to a new location, part of its preparations is to visit the place to confirm the need and also meet with representatives from various denominations in the location and share the agenda of the class. In other words, Burning Plow Ministries partners with the existing churches in its endeavor to teach the Truth. This is why we made a prior trip to Subukia, on October 17, 2014 with Simon Tinga as part of preparations for our next class that possibly takes place in February 2015.

Our trip to Subukia was safe and successful. We spent three days in the village and so much was accomplished. We were received with joy and they were hospitable to us. When we arrived at Simon Tinga’s home, we found family members and some of their neighbors waiting for us eagerly because they had been informed about our visit. We did not waste time but we got to familiarize with one another and then I introduced Burning Plow Ministries to them and the agenda for our visit.

Then came a time for testimony and everyone wanted to hear what Simon had to say about his new life in Christ. And so Simon took the stage and testified of course in Swahili language which I translated later to English. He said:

Simon testifying
“Praise the Lord Jesus! As you all know, your son and brother called Simon was a very bad person. You all know. I was an addict to liquor and other substances which influenced my life negatively. My mother spent most of her time to counsel me but I did not change. My family had no peace. I was an irresponsible father and husband. I was a dirty person. I was unworthy. But today, I stand before you a fully transformed man and disciple of Jesus Christ. I got born again and set free from captivity and bondage to Satan. Since I accepted Christ Jesus to save me, I enjoy peace, hope and always depend not on my mind but on God’s guidance. Whenever I face challenges, I am never afraid but courageous in faith that God will come to my help. I also encourage you who have not been born again to consider surrendering your lives to Jesus! Thank you!”

Simon’s testimony shook the hearts of the people who were listening. Two ladies surrendered their lives to Jesus after this call.

Simon’s mother said the following in her tribal language, Turkana, which was translated into Swahili for me to understand and later to English for the sake of this publication:

Simon's mother testifying
“My God, thank you. I thought you never heard my cry over my son but I was wrong. I now know that it does not matter how long it takes for you to answer a prayer. You are such a faithful God.” Her eyes were wet with tears and she could hardly utter more audible words.

Simon and Pastor Paul after the service
On Sunday, we attended a service at a church Called Jesus Exaltation Center where Paul Gakuha is pastor. It was such a blessing for us to be in the worship service. We later attended a pastor’s meeting where the need for the class was very well appreciated and welcomed.

How we look forward to the NEXT class that is meant to stamp out the roots of HERESY in Kenya, Africa. We observed that most people in the village and even at church had no Bibles. So please, pray that God provides for more Bibles to the people in this village. God bless Burning Plow Ministries and all the partners for teaching the WORD!

We certainly enjoyed our “home visit” in Texas for 25 days at the end of June!  It was short but very sweet. We helped raise funds for LakeShore Church’s Kenya 2015 trip at the LakeShore Freedom Fest. We also enjoyed the July 4th holiday with 20+ family members.

We had a wonderful time of fellowship and connecting with friends and family. Becky hosted a “reunion” for ladies who had been a part of her Monday Night Ladies Bibles study. Don taught Sunday School at LakeShore Church. It was so great to enjoy a time of refreshing and a little rest.

When we returned to Kenya we made our monthly visit to Jacaranda Academic Centre where we ministered to the children. BPM provides monthly support for this primary school in the slum of Nairobi.

We certainly packed a whole lot into the 31 days of July! Thank you for your continued prayers and support as our work continues to expand!

August was another busy time of ministry. I will post about the Sunday school conference in Kibwezi where 350+ children and teachers gathered for 4 days of teaching. It was remarkable!!!

I plan to post more about our time in Kenya in 2014 in the coming weeks as we prepare to return to Texas on September 23rd. We will be sharing with our friends and family about the work God is doing and our plans for 2015!

In HIS service,

Becky and Don

As I am tabulating data for our most recent fiscal year report (July 2013-June 2014) I have been surprised at how much has been accomplished. Our primary focus is on teaching the foundations of our Christian faith both to new believers and also to those who have been walking with Jesus for some time but yet seem to have a misunderstanding of what the Bible has to say about basic doctrines such as salvation, water baptism, Holy Communion, the resurrection of the dead, etc. To those that we teach, we leave in their hands printed materials (in their choice of English or Swahili) in the form of lesson plans to help them form their own home Bible study group to teach others what they have learned.

As part of this instruction, we take the people from our class out into the villages with us to show the “Jesus” film as beginning evangelism to help them get new believers into their newly formed Bible study classes. As you can imagine, this works very, very well in many parts of Kenya where our students have been well prepared for our arrival and who already have a great initiative towards evangelism.

Consider that almost none of our evangelism is in well-populated areas. Our targets are very small villages in remote Kenya where relatively few missionaries work. This makes the numbers very impressive indeed.

These past 12 months, we have shown the film 14 times in 13 different villages to a total of more than 4,300 people with well over 900 new converts.  This is amazing. In addition, we know of many of those who were converted during these missions of Burning Plow Ministries (BPM) who have been directly responsible for the conversions of many more by one-on-one evangelism.

This is but one of the many ministries of BPM. Each of BPM’s several ministries in and of itself makes our presence here in Kenya very worthwhile. It gladdens my heart to be able to see the fruit of the work that God has given for us to do. I am personally very appreciative of all of our prayer partners and financial supporters who make this ministry possible.

The photos below are Foundations of Our Faith Classes that we have conducted in the last 12 months. As you look carefully at these people, look at each person individually and spend a little time praying for them and their continuing work of spreading the gospel message and building and strengthening of the body of Christ.

Be blessed,

Don and Becky Cameron
