From Dec 2016

We want to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. It is impossible to believe that 2016 is almost over.  In many ways, I am looking forward to starting 2017 with all of its unseen adventure and possibilities.

As I review 2016, I wanted to share some of our successes:
·         131 salvations; 83 baptisms
·         102 families joined as monthly sponsors of students at our Kenyan Christian schools
·         25 pastors were trained in our seminars – Teaching Biblical Truth and Making Disciples
·         2 youth “Encounter” camps were held with six saved.
·         1 Pastor Training Scholarship given to student at Crossroads Baptist Bible Institute, Kenya
·         1 church building constructed for Voice of Hope Baptist Church, Bomani, Kenya
·         1 new church in Colorado, Kenya
·         60 new students added to our Kenyan Christian schools
·         60 of our students graduated from 8th grade (Good News and New Life Academies)
·         35 of our students graduated from our Valerye McMillan High School
·         1 Administration Building constructed at high school
·         Funds raised to build 3rd floor of female dormitory at high school
·         Funds raised to build 2 new classrooms at high school
·         Funds raised to build 1st floor of male dormitory at high school

We are praising God for all the was accomplished in 2016.  Thank you for your monthly support that enables us to continue serving God alongside Kenyans to reach their country for Christ.

Here are some of our goals for 2017:
·         To see a minimum of 100 people come to know Christ
·         Construction of one new church ($10,000)
·         Have a minimum of 25 pastors training in our seminars
·         Sponsor one student for pastoral training in our Bible Institute ($400)
·         Expand our spiritual mentoring program within our staff and employees
·         Hold 2 youth “Encounter” camps
·         Construction of the male dormitory and 3rd floor of female dormitory (high school)
·         Add 60 new children to our Christian educational program

Please keep us in your prayers as we seek God’s wisdom in reaching these goals and setting others for His kingdom. Could you set a goal to help us build a church or send a student to Bible school? We hope that as you pray that God would enlarge your vision for reaching the world especially Kenya with the Gospel.
Merry Christmas
