There will be a medical clinic, a day of encouragement for the community, leadership training and other ministry activities.

Today, the team had a powerful day! During the first part of the day we participated in a Pastors’ Conference at the Fountain of Life Church. This conference was held to uplift and encourage church leaders. In the morning session, Bishop Robertson, Minister Jeannie Diggs, and Minister Gina Brown brought a powerful Word. During the afternoon session, Bishop ministered again, along with Pastor Scott Sanders and Elder Eric Thompson. Many pastors attending shared amazement at the anointing coming from the team. At the same time, four teams were sent to different areas in Kiserian to share the Gospel through street evangelism. Many testimonies of God’s hand were shared. People received salvation and prayer. Another team went to a church in the Maasai village. Pastor Derrick Greene ministered a message of hope to the people. Elder Nancine Dreon and Minister Amie Carter assisted with the altar call in which several people came up for healing. Two children and five adults received instantaneous healing, including one woman who’s spine was straightened on the spot! Glory to God! The Lord continues to send the rain spiritually and literally! This is the third day of rain and the people consider it a blessing. They see us as bringing the much needed rain! God is doing great things! Glory to His name!

Early in the morning, a few team members visited children at the school where Pastor Peter Olonapa was once a student. We shared the good news of God’s kingdom and reminded the kids that God loves each and every one of them! The team members were warmly received by the students and staff, and the children even sang to us! The entire team came together and continued worshipping at the Pastors’ Conference, held at Liberty Baptist Church. Pastor Peter Olonapa invited many pastors from across Kenya to be there. We were on Maasai land and honored to meet many of the Maasai people. We were also blessed to be a part of their worship in authentic Maasai fashion. Bishop Robertson ministered a dynamic message on leadership to the pastors. The team also enjoyed lunch at Pastor Peter’s home. His wife, Pastor Emmah cooked a delicious meal for us. After lunch, the Pastors’ Conference continued with separate leadership sessions for the men and women. Several men on our team ministered to the Maasai men, while the women on the team shared with the Maasai women. Bishop closed out the day with a powerful word of encouragement!
UPDATE: October 14, 2017
God continues to do mighty exploits on this trip. Today, around 20 children gave their lives to Christ at the continuation of the Pastors’ Conference! As an outreach opportunity, Community Day was held after the conference. During this time the Maasai people received toiletries, clothes, shoes and school supplies. The pastors received a book bag with supplies. And, the rain showed up again! The women in attendance came together with the women on our team and discussed the challenges Maasai women face. The Maasai people blessed each team member with a special gift. We were truly blessed!
UPDATE: October 15, 2017
This was the final full day of missions for the team and God closed out the day with power at Liberty Baptist Church in the Maasai village. Our Bishop gave his testimony of how God has blessed him to be an example to the Maasai. Our Man of God encouraged the people to be unified and to continue to trust God. The team members with Bishop flowed during the altar call. Many people came forward to receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit, healing and salvation. During this time, four other teams carried out ministry assignments to preach and teach the Gospel at various churches for Sunday worship. Please continue to lift up the team as we prepare for our flight tomorrow to return home!
UPDATE: October 17, 2017
The team is back home! We thank God for our safe return and your prayers of support!
