Biblical Life Ministries was given a state of the art projector last June. With the funds we received, we purchased the amplifier, 2 speakers with stands, 2 wireless microphones and all the connecting cords.
While we were in Kibwezi this week meeting with the graduates from the first Bible School four years ago we arranged to show the Jesus Film NEXT Saturday and Sunday nights (November 6th and 7th)!! We will be in an open area in the village. Saturday morning we will hold a seminar for the church members who will assist with the follow up ministry for those who accept Christ.
We have yet to purchase a generator so Pastor Shadrack Maunda is going to find one for us to use in Kibwezi. We are waiting to find the right generator for the right price. We ask you to pray for wisdom and favor.
November 13 and 14 we are taking all the equipment with us to an orphanage near Kisumu on Lake Victoria. Our friend Rachel Howington from Texas works there and we will stay with her at the orphanage. We plan to show the film in the orphanage and hopefully in the surrounding village.
Wow, from one short email appeal in September to four different showings by mid-November! God can work fast to get His Gospel out to those who need it! Thank you for your prayers and support!

Saturday night Don was boiling a chicken to make chicken and pasta. It took longer than he thought, so it was after dark when it was ready to eat. A few minutes before it was done we heard a knock at our gate.
The night guard had come to tell us we needed to close our chicken window. At first we thought he had smelled our chicken, but no, he said he had seen our chicken window open after we went to bed the night before and he feared bandits could break in if we left the chicken window open. This seemed strange to us because we hadn’t seen any chickens around our cottage. So we asked, “Which window is our chicken window?” The guard pointed to the window at the back of the house. We asked if we could leave the other windows open and he said that was fine. We told him we would be sure to close our chicken window before we went to bed.
The guard left and we sat down to eat our chicken pasta. After a few bites it hit me! Our CHICKEN window was really our KITCHEN window!!! The guard must have thought “those poor white people are really dumb!” We almost fell out of our chairs because we were laughing so hard! From now on we promise we will close our chicken window before heading to bed. I sure hope the guard doesn't tell everyone about that crazy mzungu (white person) that doesn’t know what a chicken window is!
Tomorrow we leave for five days in Malindi. Kathy Johnson and I will hold two days of Ladies Ministry and Don will teach "The Book of Daniel" both days to the pastors and church leaders. Kathy returns to Nairobi on Saturday to take care of her family. Don and I will remain to look for a possible location for the next Bible School in a Briefcase on Saturday and on Sunday Don will preach in a village church.
Next time I will share about our newest project using The Jesus Film in Swahili.
We are amazed at all the Lord has given us to accomplish here in Kenya! It is exciting to know that HE is directing our path and He will receive ALL the Glory!
We appreciate all your love, prayers and encouragement. We both think we are having way too much fun doing this missionary work! I do promise we are working!
Building, Training, Connecting!

- Pray for the sick!
- Give the Gospel Message!
- Set the captive free!
On Saturday (September 25th) we visited the area where we would be speaking the next day. The Pastor, BLM student Micah Gichor, established the church in that area 2 months ago. We walked through the village and greeted the people. The littlest babies were scared of me, they had not seen a white woman before.
We prayed with Daniel for his wife who was in the hospital. Her name is Jumwa Boja. They are members of Micah’s church. She was very weak and had not been able to speak, complications from diabetes. As we left, Micah asked if we would drop him at the hospital so he could pray for her. We asked if we could come along. So off to the hospital we go! It was open air, no windows or screens but clean. When we found Jumwa, Micah and I asked God to heal her and we left.
The next day (Sunday) Don preached in the little church filled with many children. Two months ago they had never heard about Jesus! The children of the village are encouraged to come and sing and learn about Him.

God’s ways are higher than ours! He gave us a call so many months ago to come to Kenya. We had no idea what God had in store. We prayed for Jumwa, God healed her! We gave the Gospel message, a mother was born again! We brought funds from other believers, Jumwa was released from captivity! We stand in awe of God and how He works.
More reports to come….
