After recent scandals, I have become skeptical of the native missionary movement. I have been supporting native missionaries for decades now, but these scandals have really burnt my trust. Thank you for addressing trust and accountability in Prayerline letter.

I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you, for such wonderful weekly articles. I look forward to each one, as it helps me to view beyond my own thoughts/circumstances enabling transformed and focused prayers outwardly to what God is doing around the world. It helps me to think outside of my little, local box, to see as God sees that there is more at stake than my problems. These articles and this ministry are a simple grace that is calling us to pray together as one body in Jesus Christ. Again thank you!

Kenya Floods Leave Massive Wake

June 06, 2013

-->
Flash floods have displaced thousands of Kenyan families this spring.

Kenya´s infamous rainy season, striking annually between March and May, has been especially devastating this year. The relentless downpours have taken the lives of nearly 100 people and forced tens of thousands from their homes.

The deluge has destroyed crops, drowned farm animals, and flooded homes, several of which belonged to disciples and native missionaries working with Christian Aid-assisted Kenya Evangelism Team.

Ministry leader Sylvester Okang´o reports, “The rain has caused floods in flat, swampy areas throughout the country. Many lives have been lost, including school-aged children. Millions of dollars of property has been lost. Pray for those affected who are struggling to find shelter, and are in great need of food, medicine, clothing, and bedding.”

Survivors stand in line to receive food and other emergency provisions.

Destruction of infrastructure, including latrines, has resulted in contamination of water sources and the spread of water-borne illnesses.

Government officials, offering minimal to no help, have called upon churches and Christian ministries to provide aid to the needy.

Okang´o is praying for funds to rebuild missionary homes ($2,000 each), and provide food ($50 for a sack of beans or maize), mattresses ($20 each), and blankets ($10 each) to those affected, while sharing the message of Christ.

Despite the difficulties created by the flooding, KET missionaries have continued to persevere, taking every opportunity to share the gospel with the hurting and destitute.

The mud walls of this home collapsed in surging floodwaters caused by the torrential rains.

“We have been traveling in difficulty because of heavy rains that have made our roads impassable, but we have managed to reach where the Lord enables us to go,” Okang´o reports. “Missionaries are busy going out without fear to spread the good news of the kingdom of heaven, and many souls have been won to Christ.”

Recently the ministry held a five–day youth seminar at their headquarters in Kitale. According to Okang´o, “We saw God´s power working out miracles of salvation, healing, and deliverance. Out of the 250 youth that came, 28 received Christ as their Lord and Savior.”

Prayer requests:

  • Pray for the provision of food, shelter, and other basic necessities for KET missionaries and those they are reaching with the gospel.
  • Pray for the regular monthly needs of KET missionaries, as inflation has caused the price of basic commodities to rise steeply.
  • Pray for God´s continued blessing upon KET´s gospel outreaches.
