One of the friends we love receiving missions updates from is the Kliebe family in Kenya, Africa. Jacob and his wife Noelle have been in Kenya for the last few years teaching at a Bible College and working with national pastors. They faithfully send out missions updates each month. The most recent one has been included below.
We want to encourage you to check out their blog and pray for their ministry.
Hello from Kenya!
If sending support, please write, “Africa Bible College Director” on the memo line of the check
We hope you are enjoying your summer as we enjoy our winter! This month we want to invite you to join us in prayer each day of the week:
Pray for Shelton on Sundays
Since March Jacob has been helping a little boy named Shelton get money for his cancer treatment. He had a huge tumor in his face that was operated on, and has been treated with radiation. Last week he started his chemo treatments and we are
praying for a miracle. The doctor put him at stage 4 cancer before starting the chemo. The cancer spread into his lung, and so we are asking you to join us in praying for this sweet little boy. Also, pray that God would strengthen his family.
Pray for the Outreach on Mondays
In August, we have a team coming from our home church. We are so excited to see them! Please pray that God would fill them with the Spirit as they prepare to come. Pray that the outreach and seminars they have planned would reach many Kenyans. Please pray that the details of their finances, flights, travel, and accommodations would go smoothly, and that the team would be blessed by their time here.
Pray for Jacob on Tuesdays
This month Jacob is teaching the book of Hebrews for the first time. Please pray that he would be able to focus as he studies and that God would give him divine insight into the more difficult passages. He is also teaching through the book of John on Sundays, so please pray that God would apply His Word to the hearts of His people.
Pray for Gitu on Wednesdays
Gitu is the pastor of Calvary Chapel Rongai, and His son Joseph suddenly got sick and died last week, so please pray for him and his family to be comforted in this loss. Pray especially for his fiance Sophie.
Pray for Noelle on Thursdays
Noelle has been struggling with discouragement lately. Please pray that the Lord would be her source of strength and encouragement and that she would keep her eyes on the Lord.
Pray for Grace on Fridays
Grace turns one on July 2! Please pray that she would grow into a woman who fears the Lord and walks in His ways. Praise God that she is listening to us often, but continue to pray that she would grow in obedience to her parents. Pray for us to have divine wisdom as we seek to raise her in the ways of the Lord. Pray that we would be good examples to her.
Pray for Kenya on Saturdays
Kenya is preparing to vote on a new constitution in August. Please pray for violence free voting and honesty of politicians.
Praise God For:
Good progress with Kevin & Njambi in their premarital counseling-the wedding is in August!
Fun times skyping with family and friends.
Pastors being blessed by the book of Philippians!
Grace turning one!
Grace getting easier to manage at church.
Noelle’s continued health.
Please Pray For:
A better place for the church to meet.
Four year old Shelton to be healed of the cancer in his face.
Provision for the team coming in August.
Jacob to have insight and application as he studies Hebrews and John.
God to apply His Word to the hearts of the Kenyans.
Us to prioritize personal time with Jesus, and to grow in our dependence on Him.
Noelle to be encouraged in the Lord.
