KENYA HOUSE CHURCH MISSION TRIP

The KHC discipleship mission trip to Seme sub-county of Kisumu ended well today, Monday, September 12th. 2022

GOSPEL  MEETINGS:  The holy spirit worked mightily and powerfully in our midst, touching and convicting many souls to repent of their sins. As a result, many people believed in Jesus Christ and realised He was the promised Jewish Messiah who would come first to die for our sins but also to come again to rule and reign in the Millennium.

At one point, in the home of Mr. Paul Otuoma, his brother Mr. Gordon Onyango testified about not having believed for many years in the Trinity – He said he was a Jehovah’s witness follower, and he believed only in the Oneness of God.  After him sitting under our teaching and hearing pastor Melkio teach on the Trinity, his heart was broken and he believed in our gospel message. He also agreed to become part of the newly founded Seme House Church.

At the home of Mr. Bonface Maganga, an atheist and homosexual after sitting under our teaching, he acknowledged the authority of God and his supernatural power. He repented for his sins of rejecting God and practicing homosexuality. He surrendered his life to Jesus and was baptized. He has now become part of the newly founded SEME house church.

MARKET PLACE EVANGELISM:   At the Kombewa trading centre, we ministered healing and salvation to a demon-possessed man who for many years has been walking around the place naked, talking to himself, and eating food from the waste bin. We prayed for healing, restoration, and salvation for him. Instantly, his mind came back to normal. He believed and was baptized. Everybody at the Kombewa trading center was amazed to witness this miracle. After the miracle, Pastor Jactone and Julius gave him some money to buy clothes and a pair of shoes. Also, his relatives were now prepared to take responsibility for him. Hopefully, he will join the newly founded SEME House Church.

 BAPTISM BY IMMERSION:  Many who believed in Jesus and the gospel message of repentance and salvation were baptized in the nearby dam. We baptized both men, women, and youths aged 18 years and above. A total of ten people were baptized.

God ministered through us to many people at tent meetings and outdoor evangelism meetings. Many souls were won back to Christ and many miracles of healing demonstrated the Holy Spirit’s presence.

NEW HOUSE CHURCH FORMED: Seme house church is found in Seme, sub-county of Kisumu.

The newly formed house church comprises 15 people, excluding children. Mr. Bonface Maganga Odhiambo will be the pastor overseeing the Seme House Church.

REQUEST FOR BIBLES: There is a great need to provide the members of this new house church with copies of the Bible. We ask that our brothers and the LEN team help to provide these needed Bibles.

KHC MISSION TRIP TO MBITA KENYA

REPORT BY PASTOR CHARLES OTIENO OWINO

Purpose: Discipleship & Evangelism mission.

Hosts: Joshua Chiro & Wilfred

Arrival date: August 3rd and departure August 7th

My team received a warm reception from Mr. & Mrs. Joshua Chiro and Wilfred his stepbrother, who were our hosts.   

On the evening of day one, we held our first evangelism meeting at the entrance to Mbita Marketplace, the meeting was attended mostly by youths and a few adults. Pastors Omwenga and Samuel Osogo ministered the gospel message of salvation and repentance to the hearers. Later that night, we continued with prayer ministry in the home of Brother Joshua, our host.

Pastor Omwenga and Samwel Osogo ministering to passersby on roadside evangelism at Mbuta.

On Day 2:  

Our evangelism team led by Pastor Jacob conducted house-to-house visitations and roadside meetings. They moved from village to village ministering the gospel message, praying with the people, and inviting them to our tent meetings. Many of the elderly were unable to attend our Tent Meetings so were appreciative of the effort that was made to visit them in their homes. Many were prayed for and considered their spiritual needs were met with many reported healings and deliverance.

The rest of the KHC leaders ministered indoors and at the tent meetings.

Dorfina Achieng

The Holy Spirit touched the lives of many people and convicted the hearts of sinners to repentance. Many gave powerful testimonies concerning their past life before coming to Christ Jesus.

Sick people were healed from various sicknesses. The stand-out healing was a woman named Dorfina Achieng. She had been suffering from leprosy for 30 years. When she surrendered her life to Jesus after hearing the gospel message on repentance and salvation she was instantly healed from the deadly disease. Her joy was evident as she later testified about how miserable her life of shame and isolation had been for the last 30 years.

DAY 3:  In a meeting at the home of brother Wilfred, four men, Mr. Otiende, Mr. Ouma, Mr. Komollo, and Mr. Adiema responded to the gospel message and were prepared to give their testimonies to the group. All four men testified to the fact that they had been secretly practicing witchcraft within their villages. Their activities had harmed people in the village for which they were now sorry. We prayed again for the four asking God to forgive them for their past evil deeds. When asked all four were eager to join a house church group.

Mrs. Brigita Otondi

At a meeting in the home of Mr. Otondi, our evangelism team was able to minister healing to his wife Mrs. Brigita Otondi. She was suffering from an enormous growth that had turned solid on her left arm. She was prayed for and was instantly, miraculously healed from the disease and pain she had suffered.

Anne Anyango is a lady who was seriously cut by her drunkard husband. Her husband claimed to have found her involved in an act of adultery. We prayed for her healing after she repented and accepted the gospel message of salvation. 

At another time, Pastor Jacob Isogo ministered to a few women sitting beside the road, looking tired and weary after working long hours, he shared with them the gospel message about Jesus’ salvation, repentance, and His soon coming return. Some Jacob said believed the message, but some questioned Jesus’ soon coming return. He prayed with them and they all promised to come to our Tent Meeting the following day, which they did.

Led by Mr Joshua & Wilfred, our hosts, 12 members of the newly formed Mbita house church are standing in front to give their last word before the meeting came to a close on Sunday.

DAY 4: Before departure the following day, our team mounted an evangelism ministry within the central business district of Mbita Marketplace. It was a huge success with children, youths, men, and women turning up to hear the gospel message. Pastor Melkio with the help of a young lady translating ministered the gospel of salvation and the urgency to prepare for Jesus second coming. Many people welcomed the message and termed it timely and Biblical. 

God through the Holy Spirit truly ministered to us as well as those we ministered to. Despite our financial challenges, God came through providing for our needs and using us to minister to the spiritual needs of many in Mbita county. His promises are sure as long as we continue to remain steadfast, trusting Him.

 A NEW MBITA HOUSE CHURCH

The formation of a Mbita House Church with twelve members is the most positive outcome of our Mission Trip.

If you have been moved by these reports on the Kenya House Church Movement then I would ask you to consider joining me to support funding their monthly mission trips to rural areas. It would be great to help them provide bibles and training materials in Swahili for the new House Church groups. I have provided a DONATION icon on the Home Page specifically for the KHC Movement.

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.

Pastor Charles standing far on the right with the members of the newly founded SORI House Church.

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.

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!

Donations can be made on this website. Click on the Donations icon on the Home Page. or money can be transferred directly to Charles Orieno Owino preferably using Western Union and for Charles to pick up at a W.U. Local Agent.

MORE ON MY AFRICA TRIP

In this picture, I was teaching the Kenya House Church leaders about Israel’s Feast Days in type and prophecy. On the TV screen and my computer screen is a diagram showing The Seven Feasts of Israel. Even though we were in a tin shed we had a generator, TV screen, and microphones. We were even able to have a Zoom Meeting with Creation Ministries International.

I am not sure what I was teaching when this picture was taken as the image on the TV screen is in whiteout mode. My interpreter Alfred is also standing

TRIP TO AFRICA

This afternoon I am on a flight from Sydney to Nairobi, Kenya via Dubai. The prime reason for the trip is a three-day meeting with the 20 plus House Church leaders in Kenya. As followers of my post will know, I have been supporting the Kenya House Church Movement for nearly three years now. It has grown from six house churches to over twenty today. We would appreciate others joining us as well, both on Zoom and to help support mission trips to grow the movement. I have a Donations icon on the Home Page for this purpose.

Another important reason for the trip is to determine where the leaders are at in their Christian walk and to determine what training may be needed. Using Zoom, Creation Ministries Africa (CMI) will give a presentation to our meeting and I will also use Zoom to connect KHC leaders with other ministries I believe will assist the Movement.

I am also involved with the International Christian Chamber of Commerce (ICCC) and will be speaking at ICCC meetings in Kenya and Rwanda. The President of ICCC Kenya is also on the International Board of ICCC, Rene Kiamba. Rene is connected to KHC and has been involved in teaching them on at least one Zoom Meeting.

Each ICCC member attending the meetings will receive a copy of my book, Build a Kingdom Business – Empowered by the Holy Spirit.

I am also travelling to Arusha, Tanzania to meet up with a pastor friend, David Owens who is working with African Enterprise. I hope to connect him with the KHC Movement.

VISIT TO KENYA FOR A MEETING WITH HOUSE CHURCH LEADERS

Most of my followers will know I have been supporting the Kenya House Church (KHC) Movement for close to three years now. It has grown from 6 House Churches to 21 maybe even 22 now, in rural areas both in Kenya and Tanzania. I connected with Charles Otieno Owino through LinkedIn. We both agree that the “end times” church will be like the church in the Book of Acts, with no paid pastors and no buildings. The function of the church is mainly about making disciples who make disciples of Christ.

I have decided it is time to visit the KHC leaders to determine how best I and hopefully some of my followers can best help KHC to move forward. In particular, I want to connect them with ministries that can help train the leaders.

We will hold a three-day meeting with all the KHC leaders – April, 17th to 19th

Note, the emphasis is first on the inerrancy of God’s Word and then on Israel, and its role in Jesus’ first and second coming.

I am blessed to be involved with the International Christian Chamber of Commerce (ICCC). The President of ICCC Kenya is also on the International Board of ICCC. I have already connected him with Charles and had him involved in a Zoom with the KHC leaders. Rene has asked me to give my testimony to ICCC members at a meeting in Nairobi on April, 22nd. Each member will receive a copy of my book shown on the left. It has been used by ICCC to train up young entrepreneurs.

ICCC has some great training materials that are available free of charge for church leaders to use. The website http://www.transformedworkinglife.net

Resources for the people of God to come forth in their Calling ​and manifest the Kingdom of God in their working Life.

I would appreciate prayer support and if any of my followers who believe as I do that this is a move of God and would like to support us finacially there is a DONATION link on the Home Page.

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.

Mr. William with his wife, the couple who have lived under an ancestral curse and are unable to have children. They have been married for 25 yrs.
The praise and worship were sincere and changed lives were evident to all.
Mrs Anjeline Opiyo and other family members remorsefully testified of the many years of living without acknowledging Christ in their lives. This family of five surrendered their lives to Christ.
KHC evangelism team ministering in a nearby secondary school. Led by pastor Jacob & Julius, the team ministered the gospel message of salvation and Jesus second coming to rapture the church, to school teachers.
Members of Osiri House Church are attentively listening to the gospel message of the Millennial Kingdom and Jesus’ soon second coming.

KENYA HOUSE CHURCH MISSION TRIP

We are progressing well with our discipleship ministry in Kehancha in Kuria but it is very hard here. The region is very dry with no green vegetation, and there is a scarcity of water and food. Our people are walking 3kms to fetch water from a borehole for drinking and cooking. It has been hard work for our evangelism team to reach farmers in the field and minister to them. Some of the people here testified that they have never heard about the gospel of Jesus Christ.

KHC mission trip to Kehancha in Kuria region, Tent ministry – pastor Julius ministering the gospel message Jan 17th, 2022

We held tent discipleship and outdoor evangelism meetings. In every place, and at every point, we ministered, we were able to feel the  Holy spirit’s presence touching and convicting the hearts of many people to repentance with many people coming to believe in Jesus Christ. And as a result, many gave powerful testimonies.

You can see pastor Jacob gathering with some of these families under one of the few trees left standing and sharing with them the gospel message. There is abject poverty, no chairs to sit on, people are standing some sat on stones and wooden logs. Keep us in your prayers. Thankfully your financial help was received.

We ministered the gospel message in various homes, to the pastoralists out in the field, even to the school children, and also to the business people in the marketplace. Unlike our past mission trips, this time we conducted a women’s ministry, and this was as a result of a large number of women present in our meetings.

A hairstylist, Mrs. Rhoda Opiyo testified she lost her job three weeks before we stepped into that region. The reason given was that she was talking too much about Christ, evidence of Christians being persecuted for their belief in Christ Jesus.

Sadly, none of these twelve members have Bibles. We had funds to buy one Bible for the leader of the women’s group.

We hope to raise funds for more Bibles and would appreciate your help in this regard.

If you would like to help me support the Kenya House Church Movement you can do so on the Home Page by clicking the Donations button. I do not ask for funds to support my ministry but feel called to support the growth of House Churches in countries that can do with help.
