June 11-25 we will be traveling to the nation of Kenya in East Africa to come alongside fellow ministers of the gospel and reach the lost. It is a land slightly smaller than the state of Texas and sits on the equator. The nation is bordered by five other countries; Somalia (northeast), Ethiopia (north), South Sudan (northwest), Tanzania (south) and to the east they have a beautiful tropical coastline that is connected to the Indian Ocean. Land wise, Kenya is diverse. The northern part is dessert like, the central is one of the most agriculturally productive locations in Africa, and the east is tropical. The famous Mount Kilimanjaro (29,314 ft) sits on Kenya’s southern border. Nearly 40 million people call Kenya their home, which is made up of 42 ethnic groups, each with their own language and culture. Even so, English and Swahili are their official languages . . .

Thursday, April 12, 7:00 p.m. is our 14th Annual Celebration of Ministry Dessert. It will be held once again at Life’s Finer Moment’s Lodge in the Clay Center, Kansas, area. It will be a special evening celebrating all that God has done through Great Awakenings over the last year. Joining us will be special guest speakers, Bubba and Heather Dowling. Their family lives in the rural Kansas town of Alton. They were both raised in abusive homes and are going to be telling their story, how God met and changed them in the midst of brokenness. They have been featured on nationwide TV through the Christian Broadcasting Network. (Click on the image above to read more and to RSVP)
