MAY 17, 2012 - Recently, we have partnered with “Gospeltime Church & Orphanage” located
in Nairobi, Kenya. Pastor Cyrus Marube and associate Pastor Thomas, along with the
whole congregation, are active in their community demonstrating the love and concern
of Christ’s Spirit. Nairobi is a better place through their efforts of caring for
Orphans and reaching the lost in addition to welcoming those into the flock who have
no home church. Through our united efforts, Gospeltime Church & Orphanage (GTC&O)
has been able to provide food to the Orphans and Bibles to those hungry for God’s
Word in both the English, Ekegusii, and Kiswahili languages. Pastor Cyrus informs
me that some people who have never touched a Bible in their life have a Bible to
call their own now, but some are still without a Bible as the congregation grows
in number. We need your help so much now. Won’t you please consider partnering with
us in this important Ministry. Alternately, if you prefer to contact Pastor Cyrus
directly on how you might help the Orphans and the Church there, please send me an
Email from the “Contact” page and I will gladly put you in touch with him.
Now we can visit Gospeltime Church & Orphanage, thanks to Pastor Cyrus for the pictures
he has so kindly sent, but first a few words from Pastor Cyrus and the vision God
has given him.
Greetings in the most precious name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We have a church of
76 members and do fellowship under trees made of leaves and timbers every Sundays
for the Gospel and sermons.The Orphans we do take care of! it is truly difficult
but we trust upon the LORD! In addition to caring for the Orphans, we also take care
of the Widows. If my good God was able to minister unto Elijah the Prophet and the
widow of Zarephath in (1 Kings 17: 10-17) also shall He be able to minister unto
our needs as per His riches in glory. Until He comes back, we continue to occupy.
And occupy we must, because I believe He's coming back soon. We want to hear Him
say, "Well Done!"
We recently arranged for the Church to have a special meeting of door to door Evangelism
which lasted 5 days. Our aim of the meeting was to reach the un-reached by the Word
of God. During our door to door Evangelism, we gave one Bible to each of 5 families.
Those 5 families received Holy Bibles with great joy and happiness. We were able
to reach 100 families and many agreed to come to our Church. We have now received
20 new people to the church as a result of our door to door Evangelism.
We are also actively holding youth seminars and leadership conferences. In April
we had a wonderful Gospel meeting in our Church whereby we received 7 new members.
Our Brother in Christ Pastor Thomas has a big burden to carry thousands of children
in the Orphanage home. There are so many, it needs the hand of God to intervene.
We shall stand faithful to the faith once delivered unto the saints.
Now, Kenya is planing a post election December or early next year. Up to now economy
is very bad, 1 sack of maize is going up to $50 per sack and $60 for beans per sack.
It is very costly but nothing we can do except to praise GOD. Therefore, let us
work for The Lord with boldness knowing that our work in Christ is not in vain (1
Corinthians 15: 58).
