Kenneth Kalama, Kenya — Pandemic
Dear Prayer Partners and Supporters, Greetings to you all from Kenya. Hope that this update will find you well and sound physically and spiritually. I’m very much delighted to thank you all for your diligent and continued love and care in supporting me, my family, and the ministry at large, prayer-wise and financially. Brethren, since my last email to you, things have come to a stand still due to the pandemic. Lockdowns and movement restrictions have become the norm of the day. Due to that, people are going through a hard time in life. It has made it very difficult to visit churches and other places of ministry. Preaching and teaching the Word of God has been so hard because churches are forbidden to hold worship services as normal. We can’t even baptize the new converts or observe the Lord’s supper and other church activities. Services are through live streaming for those able financially to go online but otherwise, many churches remain closed. We live in such an incredible time! Even when we can’t be physically present with one another, we can still call, text, email, connect on social media, attend church online, and more. Yes, we live in an uncertain world. But no matter what we face, God’s Word provides hope for our souls. God alone is worthy of honor, glory, and praise. With Him, we can overcome every storm, including the global impact COVID-19 in our world. God knows what we are going through and we are thankful that He can take the hardest circumstances and turn them around for our good and His glory. He can restore all things – so we are asking Him to restore the lost jobs, finances, food commodities in homes, relationships, resources, and hopes, etc. Beloved brethren, just remember: No matter what we may be going through, we are all in it together. We all live on the same planet. We all breathe the same air. Jesus said we would have troubles in this life. But He gave us His Spirit. And He gave us each other. May God bless you for your faithfulness in praying, giving, inspiring, and believing God to do great things through our partnership. PRAISES: 1. God’s faithfulness to us 2. God’s mercies and loving kindness and protection 3. God’s continued provision PRAYER REQUESTS: 1. Continued faith and trust in the Lord 2 Financial provision at this time of great crisis 3. For the many displaced people due to floods, joblessness, death, etc.
