Mission Kenya 2013 Highlights
Our outreach was under the ministry of Bishop Peter and Susan Onguko of Africa For Christ Evangelical Association. Our lives are greatly enriched by the friendship that quickly developed with these amazing servants of the Lord. Their compassion and tireless ministry in Kenya is making a tremendous impact.
There is a resounding greeting that vibrates in Kenya - Welcome! It started with the customs agent that processed our visas and was repeated many times during our stay.
We were welcomed indeed to this amazing country by the Onguko Family who greatly cared for all of our needs, as they introduced us to the work of the Lord in Kenya.
Bishop Peter & Susan Onguko
The focus of our ministry was three fold to reach out to widows, the elderly and church leadership.
2013 Widow's Conference
Praying for Widow's
The plight of widows is heart wrenching and greatly disturbing. They are shunned by their deceased husband's family, they are harassed and threatened and forced to abandon their homes and curses by witch doctors haunt them. What was their crime? The death of their husband.
A strong tribal-family culture dictates that the property of a male reverts back to his family and no regard is given to a widow or her children. Although the Kenyan Constitution gives a woman the right of inheritance of her home and property, most do not have the knowledge, finances or the emotional strength to fight for their rights. Along with their children they are forced into a life of poverty. We had the honor of ministering at a Widow's Conference and we visibly saw the difference in their lives as they accepted Jesus and allowed His compassion to touch them. They left as victors not victims. They knew they were important and special in the eyes of God!
Visiting the Elderly
We walked along a muddy path that led to a cluster of mud huts where we had the honor of meeting some of these precious ladies. We noted how frail they were.
Age related restrictions strip them of the ability to walk any distance for socialization. With little human contact loneliness creeps in.
Their needs are held in the compassionate hearts of Bishop and Susan Onguko, who have not forgotten them. As resources allow, Susan Onguko visits these precious ladies bringing them food served up with warm fellowship. The love that flows from Susan's heart is tangible and we had the honor of walking in her footsteps! As we handed out small packages of food we noted how tightly they held their treasure.
Jesus loves these precious ladies and it was privilege to pray for them, to hold them, to let them know that He cares for their needs.
2013 Leadership Conference
Larry preached powerful and uncompromising messages to challenge pastors, lay leadership and their congregations. With a strong emphasis to not corrupt biblical truths with cultural influences reinforcing the local congregations responsibility to remove the stigma on widows and their children.
Lives were transformed, many experienced salvation, the baptism in the Holy Spirit, deliverance, physical healings, answers to various needs.
17 These signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues; 18 they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
We thank the Lord for the opportunity to minister to the beautiful people of Kenya.....and,
Just as we'd heard, once you visit, Africa will remain in your heart forever!
MISSION KENYA 2013
Together we can make a difference!
I had just finished my breakfast and there was a small piece of sausage left on my plate, as I scrapped it off into the garbage disposal, my thoughts went back to my childhood days. I remembered my mother saying to me, “eat everything on your plate, they’re starving kids in the world.” I was one of the “clean your plate” kids. I never missed a meal or ever wondered where my next meal would come from.
Each morning far too many Kenyan children start the day without breakfast and for most there will be no school lunch yet daily they will walk down a dirt path on their way to school barefooted filled with hope for a better future.
Then, as I was praying, I was overcome with a great feeling of compassion for the Kenyan people as the Lord showed me children waking up with nothing to eat. As I type this note, I have tears running down my face saying, Lord what can I do? I can’t feed the world. The Lord responded, “just as I save each soul one at the time, feed my children, one at the time.”
In over 30 years of ministry I have never had the Lord move on me in this way. I appeal to each of you to search your hearts and see what you can do to help us feed one child at
a time. Together we can make a difference!

A Kenyan Mother
With Her Children
Through the purity of obedient servants, God chose to change the course of history. Mary, impregnated with the gift of God, and Joseph in obedience followed angelic directions that positioned them in the incredible plan about to unfold.
The blackened sky was studded with diamond-like stars pulsating with the knowledge of the events about to unfold. The flutter of angel wing vibrations filtered through the atmosphere, as the hosts position themselves to go forth. The shepherds note a stillness that captures their attention. The Father nods His head and suddenly the scroll of heaven unfurls and the invisible became visible.
Behold, the angel of the Lord stood before them, and they were greatly afraid. Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born this day in the City of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.” And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men!” Luke 2:12-14 NKJ
For God so greatly loved the world that He gave His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life. John 3:16 AMP
If you’ve never received the gift of salvation, open your heart wide and accept Jesus and enter into the most amazing relationship of your life.

Thought For The Day
Rev. Larry L. Graham
As I listen to the news, it seems that everyone wants more freedom of choice. One of the least understood processes of life is the “Power of Choice”. The issue is not having the freedom to choose but rather making right choices.
We make hundreds of choices every day and many we don’t even think about, we
just do it.
Thankfully, most choices we make are benign with little influence on our lives. However, all too often this same automatic decision process is carried over to more serious choices.
Created with free will, we have the God given right to make choices in life, just as Adam and Eve had a choice in the Garden of Eden.
However, many are blinded with the fact that they have to live with the inevitable, life-altering consequences of bad choices. As a result, they are confronted with a cascading impact that creates obstacles that could have been avoided.
Therefore, it is important that we know God’s word, seek Godly counsel, pray and give a great deal of thought to the choices we make.
There is ONE major choice that each of us will be confronted with, the choice of accepting Jesus Christ as our personal Savior or denying Him. There are huge consequences to this choice. Acceptance brings eternal life, the joy of an intimate relationship with Jesus and so much more. Denial brings eternal death and living in a world without the blessings of God.
What will you do with Jesus?
Deut 30:19-20 AMP
19 … I have set before you life and death, the
blessings and the curses; therefore choose life, that you and your descendants may live.
20 And may love the Lord your God, obey His voice, and cling to Him. For He is your life and the length of your days.
