Holding open air crusades in markets and other strategic places in villages and remote areas, putting the greatest focus in rural areas and places where the Gospel has never been preached. This is mostly followed by Revival meetings to encourage the newly saved and teaching them foundational teachings of the Word. We also have special discipleship sessions for those already saved and the leaders.
The Lord put upon our hearts to plant churches in unreached places. These churches are supported by free will offerings from people who share the same vision and burden. We disciple and train the churches to effectively reach their own home areas with the Gospel.
We carry out special ministries for children. During our open air crusades many children turn up being excited about puppets and sweets. Then the teachers preach the Gospel and many children make decisions for Christ. We also minister in other children homes or orphans and street children. We have witnessed children being filled with the Holy Spirit and operating in the gifts of the Holy Spirit. We believe that our God who is no respector of persons is going to bless the children mightily in this end time revival. With this in mind, we have special sessions to train children and impart Spiritual Gifts.
In our outreaches, we have encountered many orphans and street children. These less fortunate children are total orphans without both parents. they have suffered much rejection and we need to show them love. The church has already identified and is supporting 16 children (orphans). The premises these less fortunate children use is inhuman and unhealthy and we are now trusting God for an Orphanage Centre. We support these orphans with the following:
....Provide three meals daily with a balanced diet.
....Offer routine medical screening and immunization.
....Provide Christian, moral ethics and secular education.
....Provide a sheltered home and disciplined environment conducive to character building and training.
Widows and Orphans Program
This program is working to provide for widows and orphans and to keep the school functioning for the young children in the area. Early education is not mandatory in Kenya. The parents are expected to do it. If the parents are unable or if there are no parents, the children miss the preparation they need to enter school. The New Hope Fellowship Church has had an early childhood school for eight years. The teacher works without a salary and lives on the contibutions of her student's parents who are very poor and the people of the small church, also very poor. She has been in her position since the school opened eight years ago. She also cares for a mentally handicapped boy.
Pastor Lucas and Jane Obanda started a program that will provide both income and food for the children in the school as well as the widows and orphans in the community. They have purchased three goats and already have a new baby. They will continue to breed the goats and use them for milk and eventually meat. They also have some chickens for eggs and meat.
Their need is for good milk cows, not just the native cows. They will breed these to increase the herd and sell, and they will provide milk for the children. They also need more goats and chickens. They have space for the livestock, but they would like to buy a tract of land on which to raise some crops. Land can be leased but once it is improved and producing , the landlord tends to want it back. The best way is to buy--but money for leasing and seed is better than nothing.
Below is a list of costs. Any contribution would be appreciated. These are good honest people with hearts for the Lord and a calling to do this work. All of your contribution will go toward the project. There will be no "administrative costs" here.
....Dairy Cows @ 30,000KSH = about $500-$571 each.
....Goats @ 2000 KSH each = about $28 each
....Laying Hens @ 300 KSH = about $4.00...only a few can produce lots more!
....Land around Mumias runs about $2500 an acre. Two or Three acres would get the job done.
