KHC MISSION TRIP TO SORI

REPORT ON KENYA HOUSE CHURCH MOVEMENT MISSION TRIP REPORT TO SORI URBAN CENTER

Arrival: 7th, June 2022 and Depart: 12th, June 2022 Purpose of visit:   Discipleship

Host: Mr David Okanga Anjejo. Report by: Pastor Charles Otieno Owino

Normally we hold a lot of outdoor meetings, but this trip we held more indoor meetings as Sori experienced a lot of rain, day and night during our time there.

The indoor meetings were blessed as we witnessed a lot of lost souls saved. Those who were bound in sin, and those bound with the spirits of the region being loosed. Many later gave testimonies of being deceived by false teachers.

HOUSE CHURCH MEETINGS:

We met in the home of Mr. Kephas with his elder son (Abdalah) and his wife ( Fatima). They had been staunch followers of the Muslim religion prior to us ministering to them on a previous visit when they made a radical conversion upon hearing the gospel message about the authority of Christ and the salvation found in Him. They were baptized and have been committed followers ever since. Mr, Kephas will be a good backup and helper for David Okanga.

In another meeting, a single-parent woman and her two children believed and surrendered their life to Jesus after hearing our gospel message of repentance, salvation, and the inerrancy of the Bible.

In another meeting, we prayed for healing for a woman who had a skin growth on her right elbow, she believed and was instantly healed and at a later meeting testified about the healing miracle she had received from God. She had suffered the disease for several years.

There were many testimonies of healing, and we witnessed many people being released from demonic oppression. Many gave powerful testimonies of their healing and deliverance.

We were thankful for the way God worked with and through the team to achieve much.

CHALLENGES:

We experienced bad weather, much rain. We also had a problem with our generator, which stopped working, which meant we had no lighting or microphones for much of our time there. Pray as we need help to get a new generator.

NEW HOUSE CHURCH FOUNDED:

It was very encouraging to see so many people give their lives to Christ. They are keen to stay under our teaching and support so supported the establishment of a new house church with our host Mr. David Okanga as its leader.

SORI can be seen on the edge of Lake Victoria. It is not too far from Migori where Charles is located. It is not shown on this map but is inland and close to the border of Tanzania which is shown on the map.

Below, on the left, Pastor Charles ministers the foundational message of the Genesis Story of Creation and The Fall to believers in the SORI house church which is on Lake Victoria. Charles kept the message simple as there was a large number of small children present.

Pastor Jacob ministered to believers about the message of Noah and the worldwide flood and how Jesus said that in the end times before His return that the world would be like it was during the days of Noah – lawlessness will abound.

Pastor Nyarumba is conducting water baptisms in a shallow stream of running water.

Pastor Julius ministered the gospel message to a single-parent woman with her children during one-on-one, house-to-house evangelism.

As my followers know I support the Kenya House Church Movement particularly to conduct Missions Trips once a month. As you have read in this report KHC needs a new generator and I would also like to get Charles a new vehicle. I am unable to personally fund these expenses so would appreciate help if you are able. I have included a Donations icon on my Home Page for this purpose.

KHC MISSION TRIP TO ALURU ISLAND ON LAKE VICTORIA

As many of you know I support the Kenya House Church Movement in Kenya and have done so for three years now. Recently, I spent time with them to ensure they knew where we are in terms of Biblical history and the urgency of the hour in terms of the Great Commission. See my recent posts on “Africa Trip Report” and “More on My Africa Trip Report”.

Pastor Charles is on the far left.

The KHC Movement is committed to at least one Mission trip a month to remote rural communities. For May 2022, God led them to a small island, Aluru on Lake Victoria. What follows is a report from Pastor Charles on the trip.

“The Kenya House Church (KHC) mission trip to this small Island was in response to a request from Mr John Onyango and his wife Rachel. After much prayer and consideration, the holy spirit directed us to visit this family who for a long time have been living on this small Island, earning a living by fishing.

Mr. Onyango and his wife earlier last year attended one of our KHC discipleship meetings at Lidha house church. The couple after hearing our discipleship message were convicted and convinced in their hearts to have found Biblical reality. They asked us then if we would come and bring this message to the people on Aluru Island and have requested us to come several times since then.

Purpose of the Mission Trip:  Discipleship  & Evangelism.

Arrival date: 14th, May 2022, Departure date: 20th, May 2022

Hosts: Mr. & Mrs. John Onyango. 

We held several indoor and outdoor meetings on the Island, and our evangelism team moved from house to house teaching, praying, and inviting families to attend our gospel meetings.

She was living with her cousin and had a bad reputation because she lived a life of adultery, working and drinking In liquor lounges and at her cousin’s home. Our team ministered to her and she repented and accepted Jesus as her Lord and Saviour.

This young boy had dropped out of school and run away from his father’s home to Aluru. He is involved in the fishing industry but living a depraved lifestyle including smoking opium. Having heard our gospel message of repentance and salvation, he surrendered his life and received Jesus Christ as his personal saviour. He agreed to be part of the newly founded Aluru house church, and he was given a bible. 

A new house church group of 10 ten people at Aluru was founded, we were able to give them our discipleship teaching manual to help them in their further study. Mr John Onyango was appointed to be the leader of Aluru house church.

Having spent time with all of these pastors on my recent trip to Africa, I now feel more involved in the work they are doing in these remote rural areas of Kenya. Moreover, if you would like to help support the work we could do with more help particularly to get Pastor Charles mobile again. The transmission and motor of his Toyota waggon are beyond repair.

UPCOMING KENYA MISSION TRIP

EMAIL FROM CHARLES OTIENO OWINO

Sad to learn that no one has responded positively to your two LEN posts on your recent trip to Africa. We were hoping that others would join you in supporting our mission trips to grow the House Church Movement in Kenya (KHC) and Tanzania.

It is difficult to understand why in almost 3 years of working together God has not prompted others to help you support the growth of the KHC movement. However, we must trust God regardless and press on in prayer, believing He is able to provide in whatever manner He chooses.

KHC UPCOMING MISSION TRIP:

As I had previously mentioned to you, KHC from May 14th to 20th will be going on a discipleship and evangelism mission trip to ALURU Island on Lake Victoria. Because of the higher cost of living on the island due to the transport costs, our budget for the trip is 80,000 Kshs. At the time of my writing, this report only 28,000 Kshs has been raised.

REQUEST: We are appealing and requesting brother Ron, LEN followers, brothers and sisters who may be reading this post to help support the KHC movement upcoming mission trip with Au$ 400.00

Your support/donations will be highly appreciated.

Praying for you ALL!

KENYA HOUSE CHURCH MISSION TRIP

Kenya House Church (KHC) mission trip to Osiri (Gold) region. March 9th, 2022 to March 14th, 2022.

The leaders considered the visit successful as another House Church was established with eight members. The Holy spirit’s presence was evident with healing and miracles during the many meetings.

Some of the highlights: we witnessed an elderly man and his wife turning back to Christ Jesus. A young man and his entire household surrendered their lives to Jesus. The sick were healed, and a demon-possessed person was liberated from demonic oppression.

At one point, a man and his wife stood up in the midst of the assembly and testified about the many years they have lived under an ancestral curse, something the couple said hindered them from having children. We laid hands on the couple and prayed for deliverance. We rebuked every evil spirit of ancestral curses.

Many people gave their testimonies and expressed their appreciation for us making the effort to come and visit with them. They hope we will return soon to bring more people in their village to Jesus Christ.

Another highlight was our evangelism team visited a nearby secondary school, and ministered to teachers and students.

A HOUSE CHURCH ESTABLISHED:

As mentioned a new House Church of Eight (8) members was founded at OSIRI gold mine. Mr, Daniel Moi was appointed as the pastoral leader of this new house church.

FORTHCOMING MISSION TRIPS:

KHC has suspended its field mission trip for April as Ron Edwards of Living Eternal Now is visiting Kenya April 13th to April 23rd before travelling to Arusha, in Tanzania, and later to the Republic of Rwanda.

A three-day meeting is planned with up to twenty KHC leaders from Easter Sunday, April 17th to Tuesday, April 19th. It will be a Tent Meeting hosted by Mubachi or Nyarombo house church. Ron has purchased a large TV Screen and a technician will be present to enable a Zoom Meeting with Creation Ministries International (CMI) and Ron can present PowerPoint presentations.

PRAYER REQUEST:  We are appealing to all LEN followers, friends, and KHC leaders to put in their prayers, Ron Edwards’s upcoming trip to Africa and for God’s help to provide him with sufficient funds to enable him to cover all of his trip expenses.

KHC MISSION TRIP TO RODI KOPANY, KENYA:

REPORT ON KENYA HOUSE CHURCH  MISSION TRIP TO RODI KOPANY, KENYA:

ARRIVAL DATE: FEB. 9th, DEPARTURE FEB. 14th

KHC discipleship team have arrived back home from the trip this evening. We thank God for having given us safe travel and favour with the people of Rodi Kopany. Again, I want to give our thanks to all our discipleship partners and LEN followers, and friends for your prayers and support which has greatly contributed to the success of this mission trip.

We held several indoor and outdoor meetings in the Kopany region, and all were well attended and successful to a degree.

We pitched our tent of meeting at the home of our host Mr. Silvanus Onyango. We met in the tent during the day. and in his home at night. Many people turned up every day to hear the gospel message.

In one of our meetings, we prayed for deliverance for some school children who were being tormented by demonic spirits which gave them sleepless nights. Demons were cast out and the children were noticeably set free.

In the same meeting, a man confessed he was a practicing homosexual. and had been involved in this sin for many years. We prayed for him and he repented from his sins and accepted Jesus Christ as his Saviour.

 Outdoor and Home meetings:

The Holy Spirit was present enabling our evangelism team to minister in many homes and in the villages sharing the Gospel and distributing bible tracts.

In one of our outdoor meetings, the Holy Spirit touched the life of a young girl who had lived a life of sin for many years. She heard the gospel message gladly and her repentance was genuine. Her heart was touched and she was convicted of her sin. She fell down on her knees and gave her life to Jesus. Subsequently, she was baptized. and prayed over.

In the home of Mrs. Grace Onyango, our team was able to minister healing to her sick child. Grace told us how she had previously visited different hospitals seeking medical help, but the child’s condition continued deteriorating. Pastor Charles prayed for the sick child and upon placing his hand on her, the child nodded her head, coughed, and was instantly healed.

Many miracles of healing were performed by God through us and many people gave powerful testimonies after having seen what God had done in their lives.

A new house church was established at Rodi Kopany: 10 people out of the large number we ministered to accepted the reality and biblical validity of our gospel message and agreed to join and become part of a Rodi Kopany house church group. 

KHC UPCOMING MISSION TRIP:

We have changed the date, after much consultation with our host and  KHC leaders. Our next discipleship and evangelism mission trip will be to the OSIRI gold mine, within Nyatike sub-county on March 9th to 13th We kindly request Au$ 300/ to help with this upcoming mission trip.

If you would like to support the growing Kenya House Church group you can by clicking on the Donations icon on my Home Page. We have several projects under consideration as well as this upcoming Missions Trip.

  1. Charles motor vehicle needs a new transmission.
  2. I would like to get a computer for Charles so we can hold regular Zoom meetings.
  3. KHC needs a budget for tracts and bibles in Swahili.

I am planning a trip to Kenya in April to spend at least three days with the KHC leadership team. It would be good to be able to personally give them funds to support some of these projects.
