Bible Truth Restored

Bible Truth Restored

If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.           1 Peter 4:11

REPORT ON MISSION TRIP TO KENYA

Brothers Greg McIver and John Aldersley from the Christian Restoration Centre in New Zealand, and Bother Austin Nyirenda from the BCM in Malawi recently have returned from a Mission trip to Kenya.
They were hosted by Brothers Joshua and Amos Kisuya and Joshua's wife Rosemarie, and Amos' brother Titus - all pictured.
They conducted a series of Bible teaching seminars in Bungoma consisting of 3 sessions of 2 days each. Each session had around 20 attendees who were made up of other church Pastors and leaders from around the local area, and as far as several hundred kilometres travel away.

The seminars used Power point presentations and were designed to teach biblical truth to church leaders who then in turn could teach their members. Logistically it is very difficult to teach every person in every church the truth, so the model that Paul employed is used - that of:

2Ti 2:2  And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit the same to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.

The Pastors that attended were for the most part very interested in the new truth that was taught to them, and have requested further instruction via books which will be posted. The subjects covered included: The Oneness of God, The Kingdom on earth, The Nature of the devil and demons, Israel in God's plan and the church being grafted in to the Jewish Olive tree, The importance of Truth, The true Nature of tongues, The role of Women in the church.

The sessions were held from about 10.00 am until 4 - 8 pm each evening, and those who attended made the most of the time to ask questions and take copious notes.

As well as conducting the Bible school, they travelled to Eldoret - a city about 3 hours drive away, where they had been invited to teach 30 - 40 invited Pastors. John and Daniel had been here in April, so this was a follow up visit. A Hotel conference room was hired, and Power Point Presentations on: The Nature of the devil and demons, and The history of the Martyrs; was shown.

As most of the Pastors were pentecostal, the teaching on the true nature of the devil was a challenge for them to receive. Most however agreed that the traditional concept was wrong. The translator did comment that "now you have shown them the truth, they have a problem, as many Pastors charge money to drive out demons"!
About 1/3 of the attendees signed up to receive more books and teaching on the truth.

As a result of the Kenya trip, around 70 church leaders have had their knowledge increased in the truth, 400 Swahili bibles (with funds donated from the CRC in Wanganui NZ)  have been distributed to enable believers to grow in their faith and check the scriptures for truth, 1000 Sunday School books will be printed, and 1000 copies of Swahili Bible Basics are going to be printed for distribution in Kenya.

Also pictured is distribution of reading glasses donated by Sister Helen Pyper from New Zealand.

We thank God for the opportunity to teach his truth and ask that you join us in prayer that God's truth may spread and prosper in willing minds in Kenya even as we draw closer to the end.

Despite the essential severity of some of the Master’s rebukes, they were still given with a completely sympathetic approach consistent with his knowledge of the weakness of the vessels he was dealing with. “Resist the devil, and he will flee from you...
