After seeing the beast of the sea, John saw a second beast arise; this one coming up out of the earth (Revelation 13:11). This beast had (in John’s words) “two horns like a lamb and it spoke like a dragon.” In a manner similar to the beast from the sea receiving his authority from the dragon, the beast of the earth acts with authority given to him by the beast from the sea.

This beast from the earth is able to perform great signs, such as making fire come down from the sky to the earth. The major purpose of this beast is to direct all worship on the first beast of this vision, the beast from the sea. It seems likely that this beast from the earth appears at the time of the breaking of the covenant that the beast from the sea had with the “many.”

As we discussed last week, before this covenant was broken by the beast from the sea (the antichrist, the one whom Daniel spoke of as “the prince who is to come”), he allowed a certain amount of freedom in worship among the Jews. However, when the covenant is broken in the middle of Daniel’s week (Daniel 9:27), the beast reneges on his promise, and that freedom is revoked.

The one who is given the task to redirect the worship of the people to the beast of the sea is this second beast, the beast of the earth. In that task, the beast of the earth has some of the followers make an image (perhaps a statue) of the beast of the sea. To the amazement of all, the second beast “gives breath” to the image, so that it is even able to speak and to cause all who do not submit to this worship of the beast to be killed.

Beloved we request your prayers, for God to supply the needs of the children food, school fees, clothing and other needs. We thank God for everything, we are humbled for the help you sent was used to pay school fees. The school administration was pressurizing us because of Covid-19 things has changed now they needed to buy school materials all at once. We paid Ksh. 400,000 for the schools, and Ksh. 100,000 for food. We are sorry for this since it made the food short.

See receipts attached, but we Thank God that some members of church have donated some food  plus what bought which will help  this week through Sunday praise to God. We trust God for next week to provide food.

Thanks God bless you all, we are praying for you all daily and we pray that God will supply for your needs also and provide for these children here with us. Our prayers to God who made heaven and earth who is our helper and provider. Kindly join us in prayers for the breakthrough for the children to have their needs met by the grace of God. We request your prayers. We are praying that God will send you to Kenya and see the work you are.

On the school building, the engineer decided continue building with the material which had been purchased and will supply material where needed. The manager of the company said they will be patient to wait for any period when God will provide.

Thanks to all who are praying for the work in Kenya. May you God provide for Overseer Don to come and see the work God you are using him and all who help. God bless you all, we request your help and support for these children and Overseer Don and Mum trip. Thanks. God bless you all, we look forward hearing from you beloved. Thanks.

Trying to manage the funds that are given for the orphans is sometimes very difficult. There
are three basic costs that we try to cover.

The first of these and the highest priority fund is for all the food and other daily needs for the children.

The second is the school fees for the children. The new school term began on Monday. It will run until the 23rd of December. The total cost for all of fees for all our children is $5115 for this term.

The third fund is for the school that we are building on the orphanage. This is actually the lowest priority but important none-the-less. It a long-term project, and of course a very costly project.

As you can read in Joel’s letter below, we recently ran into a shortage of food for the
children because we needed to buy a large amount of building materials so that we could begin construction of the school. We rarely (almost never) know week-by-week how much money we will have for the next week or two. We simply have to trust God to provide.

When the food runs out, the staff and kids pray and fast. They seek the Lord. Pastor Joel tells the children, “I do not know why God has chosen not to provide food for this day, but it is the path he has chosen for us.”

Praise God that he did provide, and we were able to send last week. The breakdown for the food purchased is below, after Joel’s letter:


Dear Beloved Dad, Mum, Church and friends,

Greetings in the precious name of Jesus our lord and savior, we are humbled once  again for your love and help we received for food. We appreciate all blog readers who are sending donations to pastor Don, Vivian and Church. God bless you all, thanks.

Thanks goes to the church in USA church and Kenya for the days food was not in our storage room. Out of 12 days children missed food for 7 days. We were praying and fasting seeking God. We have taught children to seek God in all situations. We thank God for the regular provision even when delay comes. The lesson to remain trusting God more and more in our life is the time to develop our faith grow strong and stronger.

Be of good courage. We thank God for sustaining you and Kenya family. Our prayers are with you all. We are trusting God for the provision. We are looking to him daily to help this work here and supply what we need. We know it needs the hand of God for all that is needed to be accomplished.
