Update from Mary
Mary send a short video clip of a flooded river with a woman being swept along- fortunately rescued.
She said there were three things affecting their community at present: corona; flood and famine. She told me that Lake Nakuru flooded a neighbouring village- having a devastating effect on those in the village.
She also said she appreciated our prayers as this was the only weapon they had. She asked if we could continue to join hands with her in prayer for them.
She also asked me to share the following with our church as she did with her church recently:
WHY DO YOU COMPLAIN?
Did Moses stay in the river throughout his life?
Did Joseph stay in the prison or the pit forever?
Did Shadrach, Meschach and Abednego stay in the fire?
Did Daniel stay forever in the lions den?
Was Esther slave forever?
Did Abraham stay childless forever?
Did Hannah stay barren forever?
Did Bartimaus stay blind forever?
Did Lazarus stay in the grave forever?
Was Jairus daughter dead forever?
Did Jesus stay in the tomb forever?
That's how I know you will not be where you are forever. Dont let your faith die, dont give up hope, dont allow the voice of what you are going through to be louder than the voice of God's promise.
The lockdown you are in, is seasonal. Soon you will be out of the situation.
2 Timothy chapter 1. John 11:38
Update From Mary
(From outside Nairobi)
I thank all church members who keep on praying for
us (prayer is the best weapon to fight in this soulful situation)
Lets also pray for all Nations.
Our government is not caring well for the poor,
so that many more people suffer from hunger,
depression, etc than corona.
This is Mary - late last year RVC throughout giving and the MOST committee
decided to help Mary by funding the purchase of 3 tanks for her small
community about 6 hours out of Nairobi. Mary continues to stay in contact
with me and feels very encouraged by our church .
The community she lives in has no access to fresh water other than
that collected in the tanks .
It is a community that was formed during the apartied period. Mary sent
a series of photos through that show her teaching the community how to
wash your hands thoroughly.
I am absolutely so thankful for you guys who through your giving support many local and overseas individuals and communities - spreading the word and love
