KENYA HOUSE CHURCH MISSION TRIP TO OLASI

Mission Trip to Olasi market in Nyatike, a sub-county of Migori where Charles the leader of the KHC movement lives.

TRIP REPORT by Pastor Charles Otieno Owino: 

Arrival:     Sunday, October 9th.

Departure:  Thursday, October 13th.

Purpose of visit: Discipleship.

Host:  Mr. Walter Ogwati.

Guests: KHC Discipleship team.

We safely arrived at OLASI on the evening of Sunday, Oct. 9th. The KHC team was welcomed by Mr. Walter Ogwati and several other Christian brothers. In the evening upon arrival, we conducted opening prayers for the Mission Trip before proceeding with a house meeting at his home which was well attended.

Marketplace evangelism in Olasi

Many people turned up for our marketplace meetings as this picture shows. God did some mighty works through us. Many people believed and surrendered their lives to Christ.

We erected our tent for afternoon and evening meetings.

Men and women who were demon possed were healed and delivered from demonic oppression. The Holy Spirit gave many people the power to understand our gospel message on repentance, salvation, and “end times” signs of Jesus’ second coming. Many of which are being manifested in our day. We even preached on the soon coming Millennium rule and reign of Jesus Christ and the Saints when His Kingdom will be established here on earth.

On the second day of our meeting in the home of Mr. Walter Ogwati, a good number of people turned up to hear our gospel message. The hearts of many were touched. Nine people repented of their sins and gave their hearts to Jesus Christ.

No facility was available for baptism but the new Olasi KHC group will ensure the new converts are baptised.

The picture on the left shows Pastor Charles praying for Mr Cleophas Odhiambo (wearing a blue shirt ). He was a former chief of the county who was interdicted for abuse of the office (corruption), and also for being deeply involved in alcoholic drinking. This conversion should significantly impact the community for good.

Three women stepped forward and knelt down to receive prayers We prayed for them and all three women believed and repented of their sins. 

It was such a wonderful time watching the Lord move and touch so many lives every day in our meetings, with many miracles taking place and people giving their testimonies on their past deeds and on the goodness of God.

This picture shows Pastor Charles with Mr Gedion Onyango (wearing a white shirt), this young man was healed from sickle-cell anemia. He is giving his testimony on how he had struggled with the disease for many years. Pastor Charles saw potential in this young man and spent time with him going through foundational biblical teachings particularly verses on salvation and church as described in the Book of Acts.

As a result of the work done through us by God in this region of OLASI, a new house church with nine members was birthed. 

This new young house church will be under elder Walter Ogwati who invited us to come to Olasi and was our host. He will be helped and supported by pastor Daniel of  Lidha House Church.  Lidha is a beachside town on the shores of Lake Victoria in Nyatike which is a sub-county within the region of Migori. This will continue until brother Walter becomes strong and fully built up and mature in the faith such that he can stand alone with his house church.

The picture below should encourage you as it shows young male Christians singing praise songs before young people and those assembled in the KHC tent behind them.

If you believe God would like to use you to help support the KHC next Mission Trip in November to Lwala Giribe then you can donate on my Home Page just click on Donations. The link was established, just to help grow the KHC movement. Two projects I would like to see completed are

  1. vehicle for Pastor Charles
  2. Funds for Bibles in Swahili

I took this photo of Charles’s vehicle during my visit in April of this year. It had not been functional for many months. The gearbox needs replacing and probably the motor as well. The best option is probably a replacement low-mileage Toyota wagon.

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.
