ELIZABETH NYABUTO

GENDER:             FEMALE

AGE:                     16

FROM:                  1

YEAR SHE CAME TO THE ORPHANAGE 2018

HOW WE GOT HER: FROM STREET AFTER POST ELECTION VIOLANCE

Elizabeth was raised by a single mother who lived at Rongo since the year 2005. She gave birth to Elizabeth at Rongo market. When Elizabeth tried to enquire about their family background from her mother, the mother used to rebuke her and eventually told her daughter Elizabeth that she was misplaced. She always told Elizabeth to stop asking about their family background but instead work hard in school!!

Unfortunately the mother of Elizabeth was slaughtered by violence perpetrators who attacked the flat where they were living inside and by good luck Elizabeth had gone for sugar at the shop!! On her way back to the house she saw these perpetrators cutting her mother’s neck and other neighbors were tightly held also to be killed.

She threw down the sugar and in her hand she was having a change of 150 Shillings from sugar, she picked a motor bike and escaped to  Nyamarambe sub-county. She did not wish to go back to their rental house at Rongo again where her beloved mother was killed before her eyes due to 2012 -2013 post-election violence.

One of the teachers at Nyakeyo primary school adopted Elizabeth to his home and later in November the year 2017 the teacher’s family migrated to the nearby country of Tanzania leaving Elizabeth in the care of their elder brother. This brother chased Elizabeth from his home due to pressure from his wife who did not want Elizabeth to be adopted to their family.

Elizabeth ran to the street and we found her in need of our help we listened to her and came with her to the orphanage. She is now peaceful in the orphanage and she congratulates Pastor Donald  and the friends in the USA for the hand of support. She likes cleaning the church and reciting  memory verses. She has a passion of becoming a teacher of the word of God .

 

CONSTANTINE MOSOMI

GENDER: MALE

FORM 2

 YEAR HE CAME TO THE ORPHANAGE 2018

This boy Constantine was born in a polygamous family. His mother was the first wife to his father and the second one was known as Susan. Constantine’s mother was known as Eucabeth and his father was known as Enock Mariga. This man Enock rejected the mother of Constantine and the Mother of this boy went away to unknown place leaving her son Constantine in the hands of his father Enock. She went away in the year 2011 to date!!

Constantine enjoyed living in harmony with his father and step mother until the year 2017 May when Enock died on the spot after falling down from a two storey building where he was doing Masonry work. After the burial of Constantine ‘s father, 5 months  later, Susan the step mother of Constantine secretly sold the whole plot plus the buildings that Enock had bought and this is the place where they knew as home.

This step mother disappeared with her two children to unknown place. By then Constantine was learning in Nyabioto boarding school. When the term was completed he came home and was terribly surprised that their home and premises was of a different person who bought it from her step mother Susan.

Constantine was denied access to this home and could not locate his step mother up to now!! This boy suffered rejection from his biological mother and his step mother too until two four months  later when we meet him January 2018 in dilemma wandering  in Sengera villages without hope. We brought him under the orphanage care. He is a simple and kind boy. He is a good footballer and he likes teaching other kids the word of God. He has a passion of becoming a preacher.

 

KEVIN  OMWOYO

GENDER : MALE

AGE: 6

CLASS :GRADE 1

YEAR HE CAME TO THE ORPHANAGE : 2018

FOUND: ABANDONED

Kevin’s mother was a drunkard and she lived in a place called Ekona near our Sengera  Market. His mother left home one morning and she never returned to the house where they lived.

Three days later she was still missing, so the clan elder called us to the scene and requested us to adopt this young kid Kevin to the orphanage by the mercies of God as  they will be looking for his mother. He persuaded us that if his mother will be found then she will pick her son Kevin from the orphanage.

Since January 2018 we have not managed to find Kevin’s mother. The story is still complicated!!! We don’t know if she is alive or dead!!This young boy is still staying in the orphanage since the year 2018 and we took him to school, he is in STD 1 now.

Kevin is not even thinking about the missing of his mother because he is taken care of in the orphanage and he is joyful always. He likes dancing in the church and wants to be a singer. Keep him in prayer.

BLOOD, BLOOD, BLOOD...SO MUCH BLOOD - THE LOG CHURCH SERMON, NOV 22

The lesson that took greater than 4000 years to complete is actually summarized in one phrase—
one partial sentence in the New Testament book of Hebrews: “Without the shedding of blood, there is no forgiveness of sins” (Hebrews 9:22).

It seems a simple summary, but it frankly is not very satisfying—at least it is not to me. Why is the shedding of blood necessary? Couldn’t God just forgive and leave it at that?

Perhaps the unsatisfying nature of this lesson is the very reason that it took more than 4000 years to complete. Besides that, I do not think that we, even 2000 years on, have yet learned it sufficiently.

 The Lesson Begins

As you remember from last week, this lesson began with Adam and Eve. When this first man and woman sinned by listening to the serpent and rebelled against the authority of God, the Lord made for them coverings for their bodies, using the hide of an animal. Of course, this required that animal first to be slaughtered. It was probably the first time that these first humans experienced the death of any living creature.

Today we see death nearly every day. It is not only that animals are slaughtered daily so that we can make articles of clothing such as shoes and jackets and so that we can eat, but we might even see death with our own eyes by an animal that was hit by a vehicle on the roadway, or a bird that has flown too hard into our living room window.

Even with death part of our everyday experience, the idea of death being necessary for the purpose of our forgiveness seems in some ways offensive. It is understandable for us to ask why this is essential. God can do all things. Can he not forgive without something being killed?

Of course this leads up to the ultimate sacrifice of Jesus Christ, the One who has been revealed to us as being God’s only son. Why was it necessary for Christ to die for our sins?

Opening Song

Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place,

I can feel His mighty power and his grace.

I can hear the brush of angel’s wings; I see glory on each face.

Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place.

Call to Worship

There are many doctrines of the Bible that are difficult for us to understand. They are difficult both because we do not yet have the entire meaning of what they try to teach us, and because we as of yet are not capable of understanding fully. None of these doctrines are more difficult than the reasons why God instructs us that the shedding of the blood of an innocent substitute is necessary for the forgiveness of our sins.

 

It is precisely because we do not yet have the full meaning and because of our inability to understand fully that faith is important for the Christian. When God has shown in the past that He is faithful to his word, we have confidence to follow him in all things. Also, the greater distance in life that we follow him, our confidence grows. He is faithful and will remain faithful.

 

Invocation Prayer

Merciful Lord, despite the fact that there are many deeper truths concerning the sacrifice of Jesus for our sins that are beyond our understanding, in faith we thank you for your salvation, and we worship you as our Lord. We thank for you this hour that we have as a time set aside in our lives for worshiping together as your church and as a body of believers. Thank you that you are also here among us in our midst, a truth that we cannot comprehend, but that we accept in faith in you, our God. Amen.

 

Song of Worship        #1 – Above All

Announcements and birthdays

Selected Reading – Romans 3:23-26

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. God presented Him as the atoning sacrifice through faith in His blood, in order to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance He had passed over the sins committed beforehand. He did this to demonstrate His righteousness at the present time, so as to be just and to justify the one who has faith in Jesus.

Prayer of Confession

Dear Lord and Savior, we thank you for the assurance of forgiveness, not because what we do to earn forgiveness, but because of what Jesus did on our behalf. We ask again for your forgiveness and grace, because we frequently fail to live by the standards that we know that we should. Thank you for the grace that you show to us, and thank you for your forgiveness and love. Amen

 

Words of Assurance

Scripture says that if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us and to cleanse us. He is faithful in forgiving us, meaning that we can be certain that he does. We do not need to doubt.

He is also just in forgiving us. He can forgive us with justice, because of what Jesus did on our behalf. These are the assurances that we have through the love and kindness of God.

The Lord’s Prayer

Song of Faith – #22 – We Fall Down

Scripture Reading

OT – Exodus 12:21-27

Then Moses summoned all the elders of Israel and told them, “Go at once and select for yourselves a lamb for each family, and slaughter the Passover lamb. Take a cluster of hyssop, dip it into the blood in the basin, and brush the blood on the top and sides of the doorframe. None of you shall go out the door of his house until morning.

When the LORD passes through to strike down the Egyptians, He will see the blood on the top and sides of the doorframe and will pass over that doorway; so He will not allow the destroyer to enter your houses and strike you down.

And you are to keep this command as a permanent statute for you and your descendants.

When you enter the land that the LORD will give you as He promised, you are to keep this service.

When your children ask you, ‘What does this service mean to you?’ you are to reply, ‘It is the Passover sacrifice to the LORD, who passed over the houses of the Israelites in Egypt when He struck down the Egyptians and spared our homes.’ ”

 

NT – Hebrews 9:21-24

In the same way, he sprinkled with blood the tabernacle and all the vessels used in worship. According to the law, in fact, nearly everything must be purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness. So it was necessary for the copies of the heavenly things to be purified with these sacrifices, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. For Christ did not enter a man-made copy of the true sanctuary, but He entered heaven itself, now to appear on our behalf in the presence of God.

 

Responsorial Reading: Psalm 27:4-9

One thing I have asked of the LORD; this is what I desire: to dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, 

To behold the beauty of the LORD and seek Him in His temple. 

For in the day of trouble He will hide me in His shelter; 

He will conceal me under the cover of His tent; He will set me high upon a rock. 

Then my head will be held high above my enemies around me. 

At His tabernacle I will offer sacrifices with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the LORD. 

Hear, O LORD, my voice when I call; be merciful and answer me. 

My heart said, “Seek His face.” Your face, O LORD, I will seek. 

Hide not Your face from me, nor turn away Your servant in anger. 

You have been my helper; do not leave me or forsake me, O God of my salvation. 

Message           Blood…Blood…Blood. So Much Blood

Song of Unity  #460 in the old hymnal – Leaning on the Everlasting Arms

Prayer of Intercession

Dear Father, we thank you for this day and this moment. We thank you for our fellow Christians around the world, and those of our own Log Church, whether they be present with us here this morning or at home because of illness. Perhaps because they home are taking precautions because of the pandemic that has now reached our remote part of the country. 

We pray for these, and we pray that you will protect us in our health. We pray particularly for those in nursing homes or other care facilities who are mostly confined to their rooms. Please be with them and fill their long hours with your presence. 

We pray for our country. We are thankful that you have given us this nation and have blessed us richly, but we are now in times of difficulty. Your word is disregarded, and there is little respect for your teachings. Many deny you. And now you have given us testings on several fronts to attempt to awaken us as to our need to return to you. Please send your Holy Spirit to speak to our hearts, and we ask that revival will come to us. 

We pray for those who have silent requests. Many carry concerns and worries that they do not share freely. Please minister to these afflicted ones.                                                    

We pray also for our children in the orphanage of the Log Church of Kenya. Bless them with food, and please provide clothing and the means to attend school. 

Thank you for your gracious answer to all of our prayers. 

Thank you Father, for listening to the voices of all of your servants. Amen

THREE MORE YOUNG GIRLS FROM THE LOG CHURCH ORPHANAGE = KISII, KENYA

NANCY    MON’GINA

AGE:                                       13

STD:                                        8

YEAR SHE CAME TO THE ORPHANAGE 2017

FOUND: ABANDONED

 

Nancy’s mother was married as a second wife to a man known as Kefa. Nancy already was 6 years old when she was married to this already married man. Nancy’s mother stayed in this polygamous family for only two years and in the year 2015 she left this marriage and went to unknown place, also leaving Nancy behind.

There were rumors that she might have gotten married to someone else but the information could not be substantiated!! Two years later the family left the rental house where they were living in Sotik town and abandoned only Nancy in the compound. They lied to Nancy that her mother was coming back and on her way to pick her up. Then, together with her mother, the two could later join the rest of the family later that day where they had gone.

Nancy was left joyfully waiting for her mother. The other family had gone only as a means of escaping from Nancy. Nancy waited for two days and later realized it was a lie. She remained in the rental house for two weeks but nobody came for her, she started searching for her so called “father” but it was cumbersome to find him and the rest of the family!! She had been already abandoned without her knowledge!!!

Some days later she was found holding a rope with bad intentions of hanging herself in that lonely house! Wanting to die!! She was rescued and when we heard the information we went there for prayers. Upon our arrival we counseled Nancy and decided to bring her in the orphanage.

She is now happy to interact with other kids in the orphanage and she is grateful to receive care and help from Pastor Donald and the church of USA through Pastor Joel and the church of Kenya too. She likes singing and she desire to be one of the best gospel artist in the world.

GENDER:                       FEMALE

AGE:                              12

SDT:                               7

YEAR    SHE  CAME  TO  ORPHANAGE   2018

FOUND:POST   ELECTION  VIOLENCE  AS   INTERNAL  REFUGEE

 The   family  of  Deborah  owned  a  plot  in  a  place  called  Kondere   here  in   Nyanza District.  This  family  was   misplaced  during  the  political  violence  that  happened  in  some  parts  of  the  country  after  the serious  violence  that   engulfed  the  country  in  2007.

This   clashes  claimed  more  than 477  lives  among  which  the  parents  of  Deborah  were   involved!! Another 118,000 people were misplaced whereby Deborah was among them! Deborah  and  other  21 refugees  were  brought  by  a  lorry  and  they  were dropped  at  Ogembo sub-county.

People  of good will volunteered   to take  these  refugees  to  their  various  homes at leastto  provide  them  shelter  and  food as they regain and adjust themselves to begin a new life .  Everyone who volunteered took one or two refugees according to his or her capability. A  business   woman  known  as  Zenah  Kerubo  took  this  young  girl   Deborah  and   adopted  her.  Deborah received   good care from Zenah   for 5 years   until the time   Zenah   died   in October   2017!!

After  the  death  of  Zenah  the  life  of  Deborah  started  facing  a lot  of  challenges.  The four   children of Zenah would unite against Deborah!! They  were  now  denying  her   food   at  times,  and  most  of  the  days  they  could  beat  her  without   cause!!

She  was patient   with  the  challenges  until  mid-January   2018  when  she  totally  faced  rejection from  Zenah’s   children.  She  boldly  and  personally  came  to  the  orphanage  seeking  for  care  and  help. Tears  was  running down  her  cheeks  as  she  was  introducing  herself  to  us!!

We  were  touched  by  her  situation  and  gave  her  access  to  the   orphanage. Deborah  is  thankful  to God  for  the  support  and  encouragement  she  receives  from  pastor  Donald  in  connection  with  the  church  of  Kenya.

STD                                 6

YEAR   SHE   CAME TO THE  ORPHANAGE  2018

 FOUND :  POST  ELECTION   VIOLENCE  AS  INTERNAL  REFUGEE  

The  parents  and  two  siblings  of  faith  were  brutally  killed  at  Bomet   while  they  were  digging  in  the  garden  of  their  neighbor   as  an  odd  job  to  earn  their  living!! Faith was the only one left back home at their rental house; she remained behind to prepare tea and take it to the garden for her parents and siblings.

This is where she received the shocking sad news about the cruel death of her parents and siblings as a result of post-election violence!!! She felt down on the floor and fainted!! One of her close neighbor and family friend took Faith and hid her to prevent her from being tortured and killed also.

Two days later this good neighbor escorted Faith up to the border of our Kisii and  Kipsigis community- a place called Sotik. The neighbor returned at the border and gave Faith Ksh 400 to use as a bus fare to wherever she would like to go for refugee within her own tribe Kisii. Since she was now on her tribe’s land and would not be killed.

Faith boarded a vehicle and paid a bus fare .She was heading to unknown direction since she did not have any information concerning her father‘s family back ground!! All of a sudden she saw us having a crusade at Omoriungamu junction and she abruptly stopped the bus!!

After coming down the bus, she directly came to the crusade ground. As the crusade continued she was terribly crying!! Pastor Vincent went close to her and inquired from her what  was the problem! She told Pastor Vincent   how her parents and siblings were killed, how she was rescued by her neighbor and she had nowhere to go!!

After the crusade we discussed the issue with other leaders and decided to have Faith in the orphanage. Faith is happy to belong to the orphanage where she receives love and support through Pastor Donald and Joel together with the church of Kisii and friends from the USA. She is a good singer and she wants to use her talents more especially after school to glorify God.

THE 4000 YEAR DELAY - LOG CHURCH SERMON, NOVEMBER 15

 

As we saw in last week's sermon, in the plan of God for his creation, his acts of creation did not cease at the end of the six original days when he made this present earth and heavens. The book of Revelation speaks of the new heavens and the new earth—heavens and an earth that we have not yet experienced.

We also explored some of the reasons why God did not simply and immediately create the heavens and the earth in perfection, as the new ones will be. There was an education that needed to take place before the perfect could come—an education not for God about how to make all things, but an education for those of us whom he endowed with a free will about how to live in a perfect creation.

Satan’s Alternative Reality Exposed by Light

Satan has filled the present world with lies of alternatives to the authority of God and has managed to convince even a very great number of people in this present age to believe these lies. These lies have brought a murky darkness of understanding about the ways of God to people of the world.[1] They do not see the works of God that he is still doing, and they refuse to accept the fact that God is sovereign over all creation.

Opening Song

Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place,

I can feel His mighty power and his grace.

I can hear the brush of angel’s wings; I see glory on each face.

Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place.

 

Call to Worship

Most of us know that it is sometimes difficult to wait for God’s timing. We may be trusting God to bring about some change or to make things happen, but progress is too slow for our liking. Perhaps we see nothing at all.

 

We think in terms of months and years, but God thinks in terms of eternity. Sometimes what seems like a long wait for us is hardly any time at all when we put it in an eternal perspective.

 

Invocation Prayer

Sovereign Lord, as we come to you today, we come as people who are often less accustomed to waiting than we should be. Your word tells us that for you, one day is as a thousand years and a thousand years is but a day. In other words, time has no relevancy for you when it comes to fulfilling your will.

Today we worship you, understanding that you are over all time and eternity. Amen.

Selected Reading – 2 Peter 3:8-9

Beloved, do not let this one thing escape your notice: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise as some understand slowness, but is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish but everyone to come to repentance.

 

Prayer of Confession

Heavenly Father, please forgive us for our impatience in these days when patience is more important than ever. We are all waiting for the coronavirus issues to end.

Some of us who are experiencing other medical issues are also waiting for a medical test or results of a test, and some may be undergoing treatments. Give us patience, our Lord, and help us to know that our trust in you is secure. Amen

 

Words of Assurance

As we read in the Scripture Reading, our God is not slow about keeping his promises to us. It may seem slow to us, but God instead has purpose in what seems to us like delay. He is seeking to teach us something—giving us some lessons to increase our faith. In your time of waiting, concentrate on what God may be saying to you.

 

The Lord’s Prayer

 

Song of Faith – #11 – Lord, You Have My Heart

 

Scripture Reading

OT – Isaiah 40:21-24

Do you not know? Have you not heard?

Has it not been declared to you from the beginning?

Have you not understood since the foundation of the earth?

He brings the princes to nothing and makes the rulers of the earth meaningless.

No sooner are they planted, no sooner are they sown, no sooner have their stems taken root in the ground, than He blows on them and they wither,

and a whirlwind sweeps them away like stubble.

To whom will you liken Me, or who is My equal?” asks the Holy One.

Lift up your eyes on high: who created all these?

He leads forth the starry host by number; He calls each one by name.

Because of His great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing.

 

NT – 2 Timothy 2:1-4

I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and encourage with every form of patient instruction.

For the time will come when men will not tolerate sound doctrine, but with itching ears they will gather around themselves teachers to suit their own desires. So they will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.

 

Responsorial Reading: from Isaiah 40

A voice of one calling: “Prepare the way for the LORD in the wilderness;

 

Make a straight highway for our God in the desert.

 

Every valley shall be lifted up, and every mountain and hill made low;

 

The uneven ground will become smooth, and the rugged land a plain.

 

And the glory of the LORD will be revealed, and all humanity together will see it.

 

All flesh is like grass, and all its glory like the flowers of the field.

 

The grass withers and the flowers fall when the breath of the LORD blows on them;

 

Indeed, the people are grass. The grass withers and the flowers fall,

 

But the word of our God stands forever.”

STD:                                        5

SHE CAME TO THE ORPHANAGE 2018

FOUND ABANDONED 

Syliviah’s mother was a very careless drunkard!! She was alcohol addicted. Although she was always drunk after work, she used to support her daughter with the basic needs such as food clothing and also education.

But the house rent was a serious challenge for her to settle and it had accumulated for 2 years. They were in conflicts with the landlord for the accumulated rent debt. One day she decided to leave her child Syliviah in the home of the landlord with an excuse that she went to search for money somewhere that will help in clearing this accumulated rent debt. She went missing for more than seven months!! She never returned to the premises!

The landlord was now impatient and cruel enough to chase away Syliviah from her home! Syliviah became helpless and later after months of her hustling she visited our church during Sunday service after which she told one of our ushers called Isaac about her terrible life experience!!

She was given a chance to speak in front of all the believers and we were all touched and moved by her situation and through the sympathy and the mercies of God we could not let the girl go back to a miserable life in the street but we retained her and took her to the orphanage facility and in the following morning our two church elders went with her to the landlord to know the story and they came up with the very same information from the landlord.

We opted to allow Syliviah stay with other kids in the orphanage and now she is ever smiling for the provision she gets and the love in the orphanage facility. She has hope of finishing school and she has a passion of becoming a teacher by the grace of God.

Yvonne was raised by a single mother in Mabera town. Her mother was known as Isabella. She rejected her daughter Yvonne for no reason!! She could hit her and drag her often without cause! Every day she could tell her daughter Yvonne to leave her house!!

But Yvonne had nothing to do and she endured the suffering and rejection. It was on a Wednesday the year 2007 November when Isabella hit her daughter Yvonne until the neighbors were angry and they also in return captured Isabella and beat her so hard. She was beaten by mob justice for what she had done to her daughter. The mob justice was angry because Isabella had beaten her daughter Yvonne until she became unconscious and blood was coming out of her nose!!

They ordered Isabella to vacate her rental house in their town because of that vice and look for somewhere else to stay with her daughter. They also cautioned her not to reject her daughter Yvonne and stop treating her daughter in this evil manner. Three days late Isabella left Mabera town and went to stay at Riosiri shopping center with Yvonne.

Immediately they arrived in their new rental house Riosiri, Isabella totally rejected her daughter and hated her more than before!!! She never wanted to see Yvonne anymore and could not allow her step even at the door of the house. Yvonne went to the chief’s camp and reported the issue and the area chief cautioned Isabella not to mistreat her daughter Yvonne.

She came down and listened the chief and allowed her daughter to sleep in that house but sad enough the following morning Isabella disappeared from that new house to unknown place leaving only Yvonne helpless and without even food. Yvonne struggled in this house for one month facing a lot of difficulties and challenges until when we met her in a miserable situation and adopted her into the orphanage.

Her family background is not known and her mother is still missing to date! Yvonne is excited to belong to the orphanage where she receives support from Pastor Donald and care from Pastor Joel among other leaders.

This is the place they called home. In the year 2007 Maryjane was born. She was the only surviving child since her elder siblings had died in a tragic road accident!!  She was under good care of her loving mother for several years.

In the year 2014 her mother died after they were evicted by the government from this land; it was a stroke ill and she was buried in the cemetery!! A good Samaritan took Maryjane as her daughter so that she can nature and support Maryjane until she becomes a grown up. Maryjane enjoyed good care under new environment from this Samaritan by the name Mogusu until November the year 2016 when Mogusu schemed to sell Maryjane to someone for only 75,000 Kenyan Shillings (about $750).

When Maryjane received this evil report. She ran out of Mogusu’s home fearing to be sold to someone who eagerly wanted a female child. She joined street life whereby another volunteer begged to adopt this girl Maryjane but she totally refused thinking that it was a trap and a scheme planned by Mogusu!!

She refused to join any other family and remained in the street. This is where we found her in the following year 2017 January and when we heard her story we felt like crying and she accepted to be part of the orphanage here. She has been here in the orphanage and she now has hope of life together with other kids. She is very much thankful for the support from Pastor Donald and the church of USA she likes reciting memory verses and poems. She has a passion of becoming a missionary after school.
