God is so good, and it is a true joy and pleasure to serve our Saviour as your representatives here in Kenya, East Africa! Over the last 2 months, we have seen more than 100 souls make a profession of faith in Christ Jesus as their Saviour in many venues, including schools, soul winning, and church services. As we press on, there are occasions of great joy and victory, as well as burdensome challenges; and your love, support, and prayers create the path for victories and give us strength and wisdom through challenges. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!
Greater Vision Baptist Church saw 33 souls saved in May, as we saw great growth and passion in new soul winners. The church is going through a time of transition as we grow and the Devil fights. We are looking for a new facility, and with God’s help, we are preparing for the future in this and a few other aspects. We request prayer for Pastor Fred and wisdom as the church grows in faith, biblical doctrine, and size.
Both Connie and I are spending many hours each week discipling several recent converts, working through a set of lessons called Foundations of Our Faith, to ground them in their new faith in Christ. Many have decided to be obedient in baptism. Most of these are done one on one, and a few are done in small groups. Please pray for these new converts to build their faith on a solid foundation of truth that they will become productive in the church, in service to God, and in the Great Commission.
God has opened several doors in area schools for the Gospel to be preached and truth to be taught. Connie teaches the younger children a Bible story, teaching them a truth, and I have the privilege to preach to the older students. God has blessed these efforts with many professions of faith. We have an open door to return to several schools where we have been, and there is potential to do the same in many more. Prayer for God’s will to be done to see many more saved and for open doors would be greatly appreciated.
With wonderful joy, we will continue as your partners in reaching the lost and discipling converts to build the church and work of God. Thank you for making our calling and mission possible!
Your servant for lost souls across East Africa,
Andy & Connie Richey
