KENYA HOUSE CHURCH MISSION TRIP

MISSION TRIP  TO  LONDIANI, KENYA NOVEMBER 2nd – 9th.

Report by Pastor Charles Owino:

We safely arrived Londiani Tuesday afternoon November 2nd. We were welcomed by Pastor Omwenga and the eight members of the house church. In the evening, after opening prayers, we held our first market place meeting.

PREACHING & TEACHING MEETINGS:
We were  able to conduct indoor and outdoor meetings at different locations ministering to many people. God did mighty works through us in all our meetings, many people believed and surrendered their lives to Christ, and were baptized.
INDOOR MEETINGS:
Many people turned up to our house meetings to hear the gospel message. Many were moved by the Gospel message and nine people opened their hearts to Jesus Christ, believed and repented from their sins and were baptised. One of these was a young man who gave his life to Lord Jesus Christ, he repented and later testified of his past sinful deeds as a thug. He is pictured both being prayed for and giving his testimony to the group.

Two women who admitted to being prostitutes upon hearing our gospel message, stepped forward, knelt down to receive prayer, the two women believed and repented from their sins, and later gave their testimonies.

Testimony given by Dorcas Awino:
“After completion of secondary school, I walked out of my family and moved to Kericho to get a job, after six months of failing to get a job, I was persuaded by my closest girl friend to  join her in prostitution. We would stay in the house all day, but at night, we would stand along the streets, half naked in bikkini shorts. Men took us to large bars, there we would  drink beer and dance discos and later these men would take us to the lodgings for all night sex. I thank God today for touching my life, I decided to surrender my life to Jesus Christ, and start living my life for Him. I now believe I’m his child forever, loved, washed clean by his shed blood. And His joy and strength is now in my life forever.

Healings and Deliverance:

Men and women who were demon possed we’re healed and delivered. As pictured Mrs Odhiambo with elephantiasis was not healed immediately but two weeks after we got a report from her husband who is a village elder and from the daughter that she is healed and pain free. (I will ask Charles to get a picture of her healed leg.)

A NEW HOUSE CHURCH FOUNDED:
As a result of the work done through us by God in this region of Londiani, a new house church of eight members was birthed. This new young house church will be under elder Gedion, but he will  be helped and strengthened by pastor Omwenga of Ogembo House Church, and this will continue until brother Gedion become strong and fully built up and mature in the faith such that he can stand alone with the church.

FORTHCOMING KHC MISSION TRIP,  NOVEMBER 26TH – 30TH:

Our next mission trip will be to  LIDHA, BUEMBU, NYAROMBO AND BONDO house churches.
As I have mentioned, we have held 20 mission trips and all these trips have been solely funded  by brother Ron. We kindly request well wishers, friends and believers in Jesus Christ to help join hands with brother Ron in supporting KHC movement to go on this planned mission trip.

KENYA HOUSE CHURCH MOVEMENT UPDATE

REPORT FROM PASTOR CHARLES LEADER OF THE KHC MOVEMENT

Hi, Ron. I’m very much thankful for your support of Pastor Alfred. Plans are underway with KHC leaders to give Alfred’s mother a worthy burial service. I will be meeting with KHC leaders at Alfred’s parents home on Saturday for the final touches ahead of the burial on 19th. And in front of KHC leaders, I will hand over the money you sent to Alfred.
In regards to transfer of funds, our position which I believe is also yours, firmly remains that all funds for KHC are to be channelled to me here. KHC will not be responsible for any misuse of funds directed to any person working outside of the KHC movement.
With guidance of the Holy Spirit, we are trying to ensure that any money sent to do the work of God is used wisely.
We do still have a lot to be done here. And you will remember the uncompleted projects like computer for Zoom meetings, printing machine for daily LEN teachings. Upcoming KHC mission trips will also require funds. 
I am working on the report of our last mission trip which  I will put together with the upcoming burial of Alfred’s mother for submission to you.

KHC –  NEXT MISSION TRIP:
KHC team will be planting a new house church at  LONDIANI within Kericho county, several kilometres away from Migori region. There is a great need for the people in that small town to hear the Gospel, and after our long prayers the Holy spirit is directing us to step into that place with the Gospel on November 2nd – 9th, 2021
The connection  to visit the place came from two brothers after they had attended our teachings at Ogembo house church in Kisii  region.
More about our trip and request for funds will be made known to you on Saturday after the KHC leaders meeting.

If you would like to join with me in supporting the Kenya House Church Movement I have a DONATE icon on the Home Page where you can do so.

EMAIL FROM PASTOR ALFRED
Praying for your good health and peace. A successful final send off of my late mother was conducted today at my parent’s home. The burial which was presided over by Pastor Charles, KHC leaders and nearly all the house church believers in our region were present. I’m very much thankful to you all, and to all those who contributed their finances to help me with the hospital bill plus other expenses for the burial. Your prayers and encouragement also played a big role in the life and family of my deceased mother. She was a believer and I believe she has gone to rest with the Lord.
Thank you ALL.
These are pictures taken during the burial.

KENYA HOUSE CHURCH MOVEMENT

Pastor Charles has just returned from a successful Mission Trip to Tanzania to learn that the young son of the leader of a recently established Home Church in Nyarombo Kenya had died.

The following request from Charles is self explanatory if you would like to help raise the requested small sum of $200 to help then do so at the Donations icon on my Home Page (far right). It would be good to exceed the amount requested.

To all KHC leaders: You are now aware that we have lost the beloved young son of our new KHC leader in Nyarombo.

The burial is set to take place this week, on Friday 11th, 2021.

You will remember that Nyarombo house church was recently founded by the grace of God. The power of the Holy spirit made it possible to open the understanding of our brother and his family to hear the Gospel message., The Nyarombo church group was birthed as a result of his conversion.

In a case like this one, you all know how the KHC movement normally conduct ourselves. Therefore, I urge the leaders of KHC house churches to do all that is necessary to ensure the outcome is positive since this is to be the first burial we are going to conduct in this new territory in the midst of our religious opponents. All KHC leaders and members will start  meeting there on Thursday morning, in preparation for the burial on Friday. Please remember all the Covid19 protocols must be observed.

To Ron Edwards & LEN team:  It is just one day ago, four KHC leaders came back home from the mission trip to the republic of Tanzania. Now this has happened to our new brother in Nyarombo house church group and we know he does not have sufficient funds to settle a hospital bill let alone funeral costs

On behalf of KHC movement, I kindly request you to help us assist him with Au$ 200. The remaining needed expenses like coffin and transportation cost, KHC leaders have agreed to help support him.

You will remember that this is a newly founded house church group ,and all  eyes are focused on us, wanting to see how KHC movement will stand in support of this brother.

TRAGEDY AFFECTING KENYA HOUSE CHURCHES

As most of my followers know I support the Kenya House Church Movement in Kenya started many years ago now by Pastor Charles Owino Otieno. It has grown to ten house church groups with a new group started just weeks ago with the conversion of a Catholic priest. The circumstances surrounding his conversion provide a great story which I will use for another LEN post. However, shortly after Charles returned home I received the following email from Alfred one of the KHC leaders.

I received a report from Charles, and I later saw him addressing the media on one of our local radio stations, reporting on the earthquake that shook their area and left three people dead, and several others injured. I understand that among the  victims of the earthquake was Charles’s mother and one of his brothers. I will  be travelling together with my wife going to the home of Charles tomorrow, to see the family.

The following report is from Charles: “The tragedy happened on my property. This picture was taken on my own farm.

This was not a normal flood, the kind we know and we have seen many times. This was different. A normal flood erodes the soil surface, sweeps away vegetation, animals and destroys  houses. But this one was a combination of both an earthquake and heavy rainfall. It covered a wide area of land, It devastated our property leaving behind a very big empty valley about 5kms long and 5 to 6 metres deep, as you can see in this picture. My house church group had planted a maize farm on this land which was about to mature and it was all swept away. And you may also remember that our economic activities here is farming so we are back to square one.

I have already sent $250 to help, but as I am a pensioner now, I am limited in what I am able to contribute. I would appreciate help from some of my LEN followers. You can make a donation by clicking on the Donation icon on the Home Page. If you would like me to acknowledge your donation on this website please let me know. Also, if you would like to become a regular supporter of KHC that would be appreciated. We have a number of projects that need funding. A printer to produce training materials in Swahili is first on the list. Charles would like to print off the ICCC Transformed Working Life series for the leaders. Also, I have previously requested support to purchase a computer for Charles and then for some of the other leaders so they can access training videos from Christian organisations like CMI and others that support Home Church Groups. I will also be able to hold regular Zoom meetings with Charles and the other KHC leaders.
