Evangelist Evans Ochieng sent in the following report:
Pastor Dr Bob:
Greetings from Kenya.
I’m back to Kenya. I had a wonderful trip in Tanzania. I met with Martin Wanga the first day. We discussed more about the registration of the church in Tanzania. The registration of the church in Tanzania is a little bit different from Kenya. Those people were saying that for the church to be registered in the country, you must have at least a congregation in every district which we don’t have there in Tanzania. So Martin told me that he is going to work on it and give me the feedback how they are going to do it.
We also talked about the kitchen that will help them during the Feast of Tabernacles 2018. I gave him some funds to help him in that work.
After that I was called by some three families who wanted to learn more about the truth. These are families of John …, Julius … and Nick …
I have many years in preaching the gospel but I never got people who have interested in God’s truth like these people. These are the people who decided to stop every work work which they were doing for two days in order to learn the truth. They were writing every verse and wanted to learn every subject carefully. I was very happy with these families because of their commitment. They will come to visit me next month.
FEAST OF TABERNACLES 2018.
We shall have one feast camp in Tanzania at Utegi. Five feast sites in Kenya. These are Ndhiwa, Bomet, Chilani, Mao and Njoro.
One site in Malawi and Mozambique. One site in Ethiopia.
I was waiting for this report and it contains fantastic news (though the registration issue may be complicated. God has further opened the door of faith to the Gentiles (cf. Acts 14:27).
Evangelist Ochieng sent in the following report:
I sent Nimrod Ondigo and Granton OTIENO to Giribe to meet them and see how they want to build the hall. I have forwarded their report to you.
Also I received a message from the three families I met in Tanzania. They want me back to discuss with them again. They still have many good questions to be answered.
Another thing I am sorry to inform you that we lost one of our brethren in Nyakach Mr Abok. So I am still having a lot of work in Kenya. Pray for the family of, Abok. The burrial will be on this coming Sunday.
Since the Feast of Tabernacles 2018 is coming near. I’m planning to go back to Malawi to arrange for the Feast and to see if they can print books and magazines in Malawi.
So I need to travel in August. I don’t whether I will get time to go to Ethiopia to see the building and to organize the Feast of Tabernacles 2018.
I received new books that you sent to me.
We also received the following report:
Dear Pastor Evans,
Grantone and I were able to visit our beloved brethren at Giribe.
We received a warm welcome and we delivered both sermon and sermonette.
We were then able to go to the site proposed for building the meeting hall and we prayed on the site.Below is a photo taken on the site.
From left is Jacob Otieno, Grantone Otieno, Ondigo Ochieng and the other brethren.
It is good that that they were able to visit. As far as buildings for meeting go, we have no real funds for that, so we will see what they will be able to do there themselves (typically, if we are able to help out, we pay for some of the building materials and those who need the meeting place provide the labor).
