“So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.” ~ Romans 10:17,18

 

Due to the current project of rebuilding this site and getting it back up to speed, the further development of our international ministry site (this site’s sister) must be moved to the back burner temporarily. Which, of course, does not mean that those ministries are put on hold.

Here’s a little information about how those ministries began and the directions we’d like to see them go.

 

GraceWay Missions

Kenya

Our first visit to Kenya took place in February 2002. What a success it was! The ministry was received by most with enthusiasm. Over the last number of years we have been able to visit and minister to believers in Kenya. We have seen these believers grow in understanding right division and have also seen the unsaved receive the free gift of God’s grace. These brothers and sisters in Christ have a great love for the Word of God and are committed to making a stand for the truth of God’s Word no matter the cost. The stand that they are making does not come easy but at a cost. We are thankful to the Lord for being able to minister in Kenya and for the opportunities to share the gospel with many over the last three years. We continue to seek ways and means to keep on ministering in this wonderful country.

Kenya is a country that is economically poor and so the believers there know many hardships. It is our desire to help them spiritually as well as materially where possible. It will be great if individual grace churches can adopt a ministering family and support them in their needs.

 

Sierra Leone

In November of 2006 I visited on invitation a church in Goderich (Freetown) Sierra Leone. Pastor John Abdulai had met an American man by the name of Dr. George doing business in Sierra Leone who understood grace and whose desire was to establish a social/ministry station there! This was how I got roped in via Pastor Richard Jordan! 😯 … 😀

My trip was funded by Dr. George and we are very thankful for the opportunity to have this ongoing ministry.

The group was Pentecostal and had no understanding of Grace beyond the literature that was forwarded in correspondence! During the visit I preached every day and had the privilege to see many get saved and even a muslim family coming to understand the gospel of God’s grace!

Currently we have several men going through the Know your Bible Course and also started doing the first year of Grace School of the Bible. Pastor John also hosts a pastors study group on a weekly basis where other pastors from other ministries come and share exposure to the materials we supply!

We currently support two orphan children with the support of a local church in the U.S.A.

Pastor John also has an elementary and middle school supported by the Children of Purpose organization here in the U.S.!

 

This was just a quick look at “what else” is going on. It is our desire for our friends in those regions, fortunate enough to have internet access, to have a readily available point of contact with us. While we will provide studies in English and Afrikaans, we hope to encourage those pastors and students to translate the messages further into other local languages and dialects to help spread the Gospel of Grace. Pray for us as we endeavor to press forward in these areas.
