Peter Nilson, Kenya — Coronavirus

Dear Prayer Partners,

Greetings in the precious’ name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
We would like to appreciate each one of you for your fervent prayers and generous financial support to us. Thank you so much for your willingness to partner with us in the ministry. Together we are making a difference to the lost society.
We are hoping that you and your family are doing well, especially regarding the Covid-19. We cease not to give thanks to our God because of your labor of love in Christ Jesus. Thank you once again for your fervent prayers and financial support us.
We would like to let you know that both my family and all members of our church family are doing well. Though, many of our church members are struggling with the famine of food, which has come into existence as a result of Covid-19. Please remember them in your prayers. We thank God because in the midst of all this, God has given both of us sufficient grace to move forward. Truly, God’s grace is sufficient in our weakness.
Though we have few cases of coronavirus in certain parts of our country, none of the cases has so far been confirmed in our city. We are hoping that this virus will go away in due time. The Government has banned all public gathering including public places of worship due to coronavirus. We are no longer allowed to meet in public places for worship.
Therefore, my family and I meet for Sunday worship service right in our house. This gives me an opportunity to preach and teach the word to my family, and thereafter broadcast the same sermon to our church members via social media. We are hoping that through this program some will come to the knowledge and understanding of the Creator. Please continue to pray that the preaching of His word would accomplish the purpose which the Creator intended when He wrote it.
Following the Government directives on the closure of non-essential businesses, or partial lock down, or limited movements into other places, we have been left with no other option other than to stay at home. Really, there is nothing wrong for us to stay at home, of course, staying at home is much better than going out. The problem is staying at home have caused many families to go without food.
Mark you, many folks depend on a daily wage, but now they have no opportunity to go out to work. This means that they are not able to make money to buy food and other basic needs. These circumstances are putting strain on the meager resources of our families and churches. Please pray that the LORD would provide a way for us to minister to these families and the community in a manner that will show Christ’s love to them.

1. Provision of financial support to help the needy family in this difficult time.
2. Wisdom and strength to continue serving the Lord.
3. Protection and safety of my family and church members.
