KIBERA LADIES BIBLE STUDY (KBS)

The ladies finished “The Message of the Bible” study and held a celebration the end of November. Twelve ladies received certificates of completion and several others received certificates of attendance. The leadership team held a meeting in December and sister Denise, who was visiting Kenya, was able to attend. Pastor Rose and Susan reported on how the group has grown adding 4 new ladies this year, and how the group continues to draw encouragement from their time together in prayer & worship each week.

Denise reported that the donor who had been supporting the KBS group discontinued financial support in September, stating that they were instead going to give locally in 2017. Discussion was had regarding the way forward for the group in light of this development. Both Pastor Rose and Susan felt that the group should continue. Pastor Rose reminded the team of Elijah’s testing in 1 Kings, when the brook died up and how God provided for him. The team agreed to pray and seek God’s guidance for the way forward.

YOUTH & VULNERABLE CHILDREN CARE

New Life Youth Ministry held the Youth Camp from Dec 8th to 12th and had 55 youth in attendance! The theme this year was “Never the Same” with scripture taken from 2 Cor 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come; The old has gone, the new is here!” The school where the Camp is held has had several improvements this year, including new concrete floors and a well for plenty water.

Of the youth attending, twenty of the kids were from St. Catherine’s and several others were brothers and sisters of youth New Hope has financially helped with school fee’s over the years. What a joy to see fruit from seeds planted years ago!

New Hope received a positive report from Tom Owino regarding his progress during his first year in college. New Hope is currently paying full board and college fee’s as well as giving financial support to his family following the death of his mother. Tom’s three siblings are doing well and sponsors have come forward for the school fee’s of his two younger brothers.

OTHER MINISTRY NEWS:

With Denise Aludo visiting Kenya in December, New Hope was able to hold ministry project meetings and schedule the Annual Board meeting for Dec 31st.

New Hope attended a swim party for the boys from St. Catherine’s Children’s Home that was hosted by missionary Twyla Brickman. Twyla did a skit featuring Mary the mother of Jesus, each boy received a Christmas bag and Denise prayed for the boys as they closed out the year 2016. After the swim party the New Hope group stayed for a meal and time of fellowship.

We brought the youth and young adults many times to work on the Shoeboxes this month. We also celebrated Thanksgiving with our young adults this year. Had 14 at our house and we went around the room talking about Thanksgiving and all we are thankful to the Lord for!

We’ve continued to have the youth and young adults programs weekly, and also one on one bonding time and discipleship throughout the week.

I also preached this past month, and was nominated to become a Deacon at GCF. I was just told the other day that I was voted in. Praise God!

From Kevin Rosendahl: A Good Report and Special Request

Dear Friends in Christ,

God’s blessings to all of you! We pray that as you celebrate Christmas you sense God’s love and presence in a special way and that your New Year is filled with favor, open doors, and God’s blessing in every area of your lives!

After Thanksgiving, I along with Nick Marrone from Mounds View, Minnesota, held several outreaches in Nuevo Laredo and then traveled to areas in Mexico south of Arizona and California and are ministering there now. Pastors in that area requested that we come and help them. We have ministered in Nogales, Encenada, Mexicali, and Tijuana conducting Children’s Outreaches and Pastor’s Conferences. New DVD Bible Colleges will be starting in some of those areas. We are seeing thousands of people ministered to, many hundreds of people of all ages coming to the Lord, and people seeing God’s love for them through His provision for them.

In Mexico many kids will not receive a toy for Christmas so we share the Christmas story with them and how Jesus is the best gift that we can receive and we give each child a toy. Many children and their parents are ready to receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior through these outreaches! We always stress to them that everyone will receive a toy whether they give their life to Christ or not as we do not want them to go through the motions of receiving Christ just to get a toy. We want it to be a serious and heartfelt decision!

 

Special Request:

If you are not already a committed monthly or quarterly supporter of GCOM please pray about becoming one as GCOM is still $1,500 short monthly of being fully funded as a ministry. Please also consider becoming an intercessor for GCOM. If you want to become an intercessor for GCOM please let us know and we will put you on a special email chain that will receive prayer needs as necessary from GCOM.

 

Again, may you each be blessed as you celebrate our Lord’s birth!

Serving Christ,

Rev. Kevin, Sylvia and Joshua Rosendahl
