It’s time to push the TURBO button!

 There is no way I can put all that is and has happened the first 3 months of 2017 in one update. Over 500 pastors and leaders attended the March conference. During this time we introduced Evangelist John Magungi as the new regional director for CMM.

Officially introduced and starting receiving applications for the Bible College opening this September. Organized all the books that we have been setting...

Our New Dorm is Ready for Next Phase!

This year we have been building the new dormitory as the funds come in. Our goal has been that our fundraising would stay just ahead of construction so that we do not have to stop our building progress.  However, we have just spent the last of our construction cash to finish the first floor foundation and columns. The next step is to put the beams and floor in for the first floor and to do that the contractor needs to finish this phase without stopping! We asked our contractor what it would cost to not only to finish the...

Back home in Kenya….

We arrived back in Kenya on Feb.1st and what a joy to walk into our new home! Everything worked and the CMM team had it all clean, groceries in the kitchen and ready for us to make coffee and begin our time here and no hot water heater leaks. Another cause for excitement was to see all the construction happening. When we drove in the required signboard that gives all the general information greeted us. This signboard means that we have all the necessary permits and paperwork and fees paid to build our structure. It also means any future...

Big November Update!

Banquet Report What an awesome evening at the Mission Barnabas banquet. Once again the venue was over the top, the food was incredible and some said the cheesecake was the best they ever had (thanks Karen Gainey). The banquet room was full and we saw many new faces and now new friends.   The “spirit” in the room was so great and we could feel the love and support for the work in Kenya. All of the reports given as well as where we are headed was well received. The joy of what has been accomplished and the excitement of what we are doing in...

It’s Marriage Conference Time

It’s July…..It’s Marriage Conference Time!! Over the past few years we have held a conference for pastor’s and spouses every other July. However, the need for ministry in this area is so great we have hoped to have them more often. So due to God providing others to help bring ministry in this area we can offer another couple’s conference. It is difficult to try and describe watching these marriages change during the conference. We see the fruit right before our eyes and the impact on the church is so powerful. In just over 2 weeks (July...
