I’ve been wanting to put this post on for some time now and so glad that I can finally do it 🙂 First I just want to ask you guys to pray for this young man that is with me in the picture. His name is Jeffrey. Few weeks ago God gave me an opportunity to talk to him about Jesus. He had never heard about Jesus before. After about 2 hours of talking to him with the help of a translator (a boy from the orphanage), about God’s love and how sin entered into the world and the salvation plan God had for the Humanity, he told me that he wants to be with God forever and wants his heart washed clean from any sin. We prayed together … he asked God for forgiveness and asked Jesus to come into his heart and life. I left with him a Bible in his native language but I also wanted to ask you guys to pray for him as I know that Satan will try to steal the seed planted in his heart. Please pray that he will stay strong on the path to heaven and in the decision he made to follow Jesus. Please also pray that God will bring people into his life to teach him more about God and to disciple him as he just started this walk with Jesus. Thank you and may God be glorified in this boy’s life.
I also wanted to let you know, in case you did not hear this already, that unfortunately I had to shorten my mission trip in Kenya, with few months, mainly for financial reasons. So now I am back in US and trying to get back into every-day life and pick it up from where I left it. I just want to take a moment and to express my gratitude and gratefulness for all of your support and for your faithfulness to God’s call to reach to the ones that are in darkness. You made this trip possible and you have been such a blessing to my heart. May God reward you for every prayer, for every encouragement, for every dollar, for every bit of heart you have came aside of me and blessed me with. The appreciation of you from my heart goes beyond any words from any language. I love you all and I thank God so much for each one and for your sacrifice.
There are still so many needs at that orphanage, in Kenya and in Africa. I am still in touch with the orphanage and the leaders there already asked me to come back so there is another thing you can pray for 🙂 They also told me to bring you with me next time when I go back. So I am already thinking about next summer if God opens the door and makes it possible.
Thank you all again. I love you all and may God bless you as I know you have been such a great blessing to me and to these kids.
