Hope Balungu received 14 Goats to kick off their Give a Goat initiative. Hope Kaare received 2 additional goats into their community. The neediest in the community are identified, beginning with the widows and then the poorest. Those who receive the first goats, share the first born kids with those they are partnered with, and so on.
Thank you to all who have given to our dear brothers and sisters. You have encouraged them, helped them, and demonstrated the Love of Jesus.
“If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and truth.”
The first church service in Shia. This community has been asking Hope Kaare and Balungu for months, “when will you bring this kind of church here?”
They brought it… They are not “doing” church, they are being the church!
In recent days, many have repented in Balungu and Shia. We’ve discussed repentance and baptism. “God, you’re right and i am wrong. I am moving to your side, turning from my old life, my ways, even myself.”
On Wed. we had many baptism’s. Yeah God! Heaven is rejoicing!
Our God is mighty to save!

Daniel and Timothy (Hope Balungu pastor). Daniel tells Timothy, “In full submission to biblical authority – ‘The Life of a Jesus Follower’ study guide – is your blueprint for a healthy – kingdom church. It’s all about relationships; Abide – Connect – Share.”
God is changing lives and transforming communities!
Not just decisions – Disciples!
We go – because HE CAME!
We give – because HE GAVE!
We thank God and we thank you,
gary & siham
