Anthony Juma, Kenya — New Church

Dear Prayer Partners & Supporters!
Greetings in the matchless love of our Savior Jesus Christ. I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy, For your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now (Phil. 1:3 – 5).
My family is doing fine both spiritually and physically. Sheilah, is doing quite well health wise after undergoing a series of medication. We give all the glory and honor to God for His sufficient grace upon us, and it is our pray and hope that the same applies to you and to your dear family during this trying moment in the world.
After Pastoring Huruma Baptist Church for 17 years, on December 15/2019, I preached the farewell message to the church. Mid 2019, we started having a burden to move to a new location to establish an Independent Baptist church. After engaging in prayerful time with my wife, we felt it was God’s leading and started surveying the new mission field. We started Bible study sessions in the new location in November last year and reaching out to the lost with the gospel at the same time. We thank God that by His grace, on 12/22/2019 we launched Macedonia Baptist Church. Since the inception of Macedonia Baptist Church, we had exactly three months of gathering physically for corporate worship through 3/22/2020 evening when our government suspended public gathering due to the outbreak of Corona Virus Pandemic. However, we had experienced the Lords tremendous blessings: physically, numerically, and spiritually (the number had risen from 8 who started the Bible Study sessions to 62 adults and children).
Since the suspension of Church gathering in the public place of worship in our country, families of Macedonia Baptist Church continue to stay at home on the day of Worship. Therefore, every Sunday my family and I, together with a lady who stays on our property with her family normally meet in our house for Sunday service. The same sermon I preach in my house, I do send to all our church members through social media and also sent to some as written message through their cell phones. We have also continued to touch base with the believers and non believers through phone calls, and paying them a visit in their homes. As Macedonia Baptist Church Family, we would like to register our heartfelt appreciation for your continued prayers and financial support which has really helped us to reach the lost for Christ. Rest assured that together, we are reaching the world for Christ.
We thank God that By His grace, all our fellow believers are doing fine regardless of the Corona Virus Pandemic. Though we are not infected but we are all affected as many things were suspended posing a great challenge to most of our people in getting their basic needs. Thank you so much for praying with us and supporting us during this trying moment!!!
