We will be returning to Christ for the Nations Institute, 3404 Conway Street, Dallas, TX, 75224 to attend this exciting conference.  Guest speakers include:

Matthew Barnett, Best-Selling Author of The Church That Never Sleeps and The Cause Within You and pastor of one of America's fasting growing churches, is one of the most dynamic voices God is using in Christianity today. 

Son of Pastor Tommy Barnett, Best-Selling Author, Church Growth Pioneer, and pastor of what Time Magazine considers one of the three largest churches in America, he has learned powerful principles of ministry which have gifted him in founding the Dream Center in Los Angeles.

Steve Robinson serves as Senior Pastor of Church of the King, a multi-site church with campuses in both the Greater New Orleans area and the Mississippi Gulf Coast.  Under his leadership, Church of the King has experienced rapid growth from nineteen to over 5,000 people in weekend attendance in thirteen years.  The church continues to meet the practical needs of the Gulf Coast region through the outreaches of the New Orleans Dream Center.

Mission Kenya 2013…Countdown!
October 19th - November 6th
Our flight to Kenya is fast approaching.   Airline tickets will be purchased this week, immunizations are scheduled and we are praying and preparing the messages the Lord has placed on our hearts for a three day Widow’s Conference and two day Leadership Conference. In addition to these events, Larry will be preaching on Sunday, October 27th and Sunday, November 3rd

Our itinerary will include visiting one of the many orphanages of Africa for Christ Evangelical Association where we will participate in their feeding program and enjoy our time with the children. 

The height of the Aid’s epidemic, over the last few years, has widowed many young women with children in addition to older widows, they have great difficulty in providing for themselves. We will be ministering a message of hope, as we reach out to encourage them with the gospel of love.   Home visitation to the widows and elderly bringing a gift of corn meal, oil, sugar (essentials of their meager diet) and praying for their needs demonstrates the love of God in a very tangible way.

We are preparing ourselves, as best as we can, for the cultural shock of seeing such gross poverty.  We live in a country of such abundance.  In Kenya it is quite customary to work 12 hours a day 7 days a week for a monthly salary equivalent to less than $1000 US annually.  Education breaks the cycle of poverty but it is often a luxury many families cannot afford. Children are denied an education based on their family’s inability to purchase their school uniforms and supplies. By September most US children have their new school shoes and clothes for the school year. The average Kenyan child will spend the school year barefoot, even in the colder weather.   Unlike our children, who have a healthy and hearty breakfast to start their day, Kenyan children leave for school with no breakfast and most of them cannot afford a school lunch, in fact, it is quite common for a family to have one meal each day.   This is the environment that the Lord has chosen for us to minister, in a place that for a few days, we will see the world as Jesus does.

Bishop Peter Onguko oversees a vast network of Africa for Christ Evangelical Association churches located throughout Kenya.  The pastors of these churches have limited resources and transportation is needed for those attending the Leadership Conference. Additional expenses will be incurred to provide meals for attendees of both Conferences.  

Your prayers are gratefully appreciated as we prepare for our mission outreach to Kenya. Join us in praying for a harvest of souls and that we might challenge and encourage the believers; our brothers and sisters in Christ.

August 2013
We have been invited by Bishop Peter Onguko of Africa For Christ Evangelical Association to tavel to Kenya where we will have opportunities to minister to pastors, youth, widows and conduct evangelical out reach. 
It was an honor to meet Bishop Onguko during his recent visit to Houston, Texas.    We felt an instant kinship with him and within moments of our meeting it was confirmed that our 2013 missions trip would be to Kenya.  
Kenya, officially the Republic of Kenya, is a sovereign state in East Africa. The capital and largest city is Nairobe. Kenya lies on the equator with the Indian Ocean to the south-east, Tanzania to the south, Ughanda to the west, South Sudan to the north-west, Ethiopia to the north and Somalia to the north-east. Kenya covers 581,309 km2 (224,445 sq mi) and has a population of about 44 million in July 2012.  Kenya is a developing country with many people living in acute poverty.   It is our burning desire to bring a message of hope and peace in the midst of difficult conditions. 
In a conversation with Bishop Onguko's daughter, June Matindu, she mentioned it is typical for families to have one meal each day in the evening.   It primarily consists of a corn based porridge and some vegetables.  We asked if rice was part of their diet - we were shocked at her response that rice would be a luxury. Children leave for school each morning without breakfast and without food for lunch.   We have an opportunity to participate in providing children with a school meal that would sustain them as they study.   Education is the key for improving a child's economic status.  Some of the children are unable to attend school because their parents do not have the resources to purchase school uniforms or school supplies.   In our world of abundance, it is incomprehensible that such basic needs as a good meal, uniforms and school supplies would rob a child of opportunities that we take for granted in our affluent society.
Broken Clay Ministries is raising funds to cover travel expenses to Kenya and to participate in providing a daily meal, uniforms and school supplies for needy children.  Will you help us?   Please take a moment to prayfully consider making a donation to this worthy cause.  We thank you for allowing us to fulfill God's call on our lives as we bring a message of hope and healing to Kenya.  Together we can make a difference in the lives of those who have such great needs.   Your donation to Mission Kenya 2013 is tax deductible.  Just select the Connect Tab at the top of the page and Donate tab in the drop box.   The bottom of the page has a secure link to Pay Pal where you have an option to give by using a credit or debit card.   If you choose to mail your donation please make your check payable to Broken Clay Ministries, 5868 Westheimer Road, No. 114, Houston, TX 77057.             
Matthew 25:34-40

34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

                   Testimonies From Vineland Road Christian Fellowship
We praise the Lord for the lives that were touched during our Florida outreach to Vineland Road Christian Fellowship.   One young man was called into the ministry. He shared that the Lord has called him to be a pastor.  Others reported  physical healings, marriages restored, salvation, and baptism in the Holy Spirit.  Rev. Graham challenged the congregation to fan the flame of evangelism igniting a new zeal to reach the lost.  Each morning we met for a time of passionate prayer for the evening services .   One morning Pat Graham prayed at the front door that the Holy Spirit would bring in the lost.   That same morning a lady who was homeless walked in and we had the honor of leading her to the Lord and connecting her with agencies that could continue to provide the assistance needed to rebuild her life.  One evening a young man was walking past the church and Daisy Graham invited him to join us in the evening service.   He told her he couldn't that evening but would come the next night.   He was hungry for the Lord and attended several services. 
Our deepest gratitude to Pastor Matthew & Jade Chester for the warm welcome they extended to us.  We eagerly await to hear what the Lord will continue to do in this congregation of  precious believers.
