KENYA HOUSE CHURCH MISSION TRIP

Report by Pastor Charles Otieno Owino on the Kenya House Church (KHC) Mission trip this month to Giribe Lwala in the Homa Bay County near Lake Victoria. It is the County next to Migori County where Pastor Charles is located.

KENYA HOUSE CHURCH MISSION TRIP TO GIRIBE LWALA:

Purpose of visit: Discipleship

Host: Mr Kennedy Onyango.

Arrival Date: Nov 9th/2022, Departure: Nov 15th.

The KHC team are delighted with how God protected them on this Mission Trip, no equipment failures and the response from so many people was positive. God was present the entire time with several healing miracles and other signs. Pictures truly tell the story and Charles has given a brief description of each one. The pictures are not in order the events occured but I hope this is understood from the descriptions given.

1. Pastor Nyarumba ( in the red T-shirt) is baptizing Mr Cleophas Odhiambo( in the white shirt). Mr Cleophas is a new disciple at Olassi house church. He was a former assistant chief of the county who was interdicted for abuse of office (corruption), and also for being deeply involved in alcoholic drinking. This baptism was carried out when the team visited Olassi on their return trip from Giribe Lwala,

2. Pastor Jacob ministered the gospel message of salvation and repentance at an evangelism meeting in one of the homes our team visited- among them was Shem Nyabuto, a former drug addict (with dreadlocks). He accepted the gospel message of salvation and repentance and gave his heart to Jesus, and accepted Him as his personal Saviour.

3. House fellowship meeting at the home of Mr Kennedy Onyango. Mrs Millicent Girago ( with a baby in her hands). She had a strong pain in her back, and the problem persisted for many years even after visiting many doctors and local herbalists. After receiving prayer, she was instantly healed and the pain was completely gone.

4. Pastor Osogo baptized Mrs Jane Odhiambo, the wife of the former assistant chief of the county. During the KHC trip to Olassi last month this woman at first didn’t believe our Gospel message, but on this trip visiting this house church, we taught her the word of God, she believed and was baptized. This baptism was carried out when the team visited Olassi on their return trip from Giribe Lwala,

5. Believers are in a moment of prayer on our arrival at Giribe Lwala. The opening prayers were at the home of Mr Kennedy (in a tie & brown suit).

6. Evangelism Ministry at the home of Mr Paul Ondiek. Pastor Saoke ministers the gospel message to the 10 adult members of this family. They believed the gospel message of healing and salvation and accepted Jesus as their personal saviour.

7. Pastor Charles ( in a white shirt) ministers the gospel message of end time events of Jesus’ soon return at the home of Mr Kennedy Onyango.

8. Pastor Julius Makacha ministers the gospel message of the coming Millennial Kingdom at an evangelism meeting at one of the homes.

9. Pastor Melkio ministers the gospel message on the role of women in the church at Giribe Lwala house Church.

10. Pastor Charles prayed for some women (on their knees) at the home of Mr Kennedy. And among them is Mrs Dorothy Ouma ( in a dotted white & black dress) This woman’s life was ruined by alcoholic drinks to such an extent that she couldn’t provide for her family. After hearing the gospel message she repented and accepted Jesus as her personal saviour.

11. Pastor Charles with hands raised praying at the home Mr David Garrison. His son (wearing a white shirt & kneeling ) was deaf and dumb, after hearing the gospel message his ears were opened, and he was able to hear and speak little but by using signs.

12. Pastor Kennedy addressed the Giribe Lwala house, church believers, at the close of our mission trip at Giribe Lwala.

A new house church of 10 people was newly founded at Giribe Lwala. This new house church will be under the care of elder Kennedy Onyango. 

On the way home, we arrived at the Olassi house church of our host Elder Walter Ogwati in the evening to do baptisms of the new believers the following day. In the evening, we had house fellowship with believers in their home. It was in preparation for the baptism the next day.

Today, at 11:am, we walked down to a new dam to baptize the newly converted believers of this house church, and among them is the wife of the former assistant Chief and her husband (included in the pictures). It was well attended. Later this afternoon, we shall pack our luggage for our trip back home in the evening.

May you kindly put us in your prayers for a successful remaining part of our mission here and also for a safe travelling back home.

As previously reported I have been supporting the KHC movement for four years now even including a trip to Migori to hold a three-day training session with 21 of the KHC leaders in April of this year. The picture shown is me delivering a PowerPoint presentation on Israel’s History and Purpose at this meeting. The image on the screen is of the Israel Feast Days.

As can be seen, the meeting is in a tin shed. We had no power so we had to hire a generator and I purchased the screen. I am hoping that some of my followers will be prompted by God to join me in financially supporting the growth of the Kenya House Church Movement. I have seen it grow from six house churches to twenty-two. If this is something you would like to do email me at ron@bakb.com.au.

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.

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.

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.

WHAT IS GOD’S CALL ON YOUR LIFE?

“You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you. These things I command you, that you love one another.” John 15:16-17

The following testimony from Joseph Kazembe from Malawi shows he is a chosen one, who has obeyed God’s command to go and bear fruit. Joseph is part of a new youth ministry, yOUT that has reached over 1,400 young people already in one year! yOUT leads them to not only the best gift of all — Jesus Christ— but also helps them discover His call on each of their lives.

Pastor Jeff Daly explains: “YOUT sprung up under our repentance ministry, national day of repentance (http://www.dayofrepentance1.org). We focus on teaching Matthew 4:17 and then John 15:16 giving each young person the unique calling on their life. All Christian denominations are included:  we give each participant a banner bearing simply “JEHOVAH NISSI”
We believe this new “wine skin” is directly from Him in these end times and He started in the very impoverished nation of Malawi to show that it is from HIM alone!”

Joseph Kazembe has left a significant position and salary in a major denomination to travel, sometimes on foot, to deliver the Gospel message all throughout Malawi. Here is his most recent email.
“Today is July 31st, we are believing God for great testimonies from young people this coming month. God continues to show us the importance of this ministry. Young people need hope, just a few minutes ago l received a message from Mathew, one of our translators, that his brother killed himself this morning by suicide. Apart from that many young people are catching Covid 19 and dying. This third wave is killing many young people. Let’s pray for Mathew too in his time of trouble. I am writing to remind the team to pray for our budget for Mchisi. We have only 6 days to go and we still need to book accomodation in Chikondi ,Hamidah and Henderson. Prayer moves the hearts of people to do something l thank you all for your prayers. Printing of additional repentance route booklets is needed as many pastors needs the booklet in Mchisi.”
Joseph Kazembe

As many of you know I support the Kenya House Church Movement in Kenya and have been seeking donations to fund new Missional trips and for Bibles for the new House Churches that are being established in these new regions. Here is another request for funds this time for repentance route booklets for Malawi. If you would like to help you can use the Donations icon on the Home Page. I would also appreciate an email to ron@bakb.com.au to let me know how you would like to be involved, e.g. I connect with the KHC leaders every 3 months by Zoom. It would be good to have other supporters join the Zoom meetings.
