January in Nairobi

Early in January, the Gass family lifted anchor and temporarily moved to Nairobi, Kenya. Besides the food and flowers that aren’t available in Tanzania, Nairobi is a choice destination in East Africa for medical care. Kyla was born here in 2014, and Gassito #3 is due to arrive very soon.

Time away from some obligations in Mwanza has allowed for more freedom to focus on Bible Institute curriculum and preparation for our trip to the States later this year.

From here, we continue to join you in prayer for the ongoing work in Tanzania. Here are the highlights for January and February ministry:

  1. Churches are forming savings groups, electing group leadership, establishing rules, and starting group Bible study.
  2. The church plant in Bukokwa is teaching through the church and church fellowship constitutions in advance of forming a membership role.
  3. The evangelistic work in Mbugani is continuing with regular Sunday meetings on their new property.
  4. New Bible Institute students are doing home-to-home evangelism under the guidance of 2nd-year students.

Matters For Prayer

Here are some more specific ways to partner with us in prayer:

  1. As people are learning to share their faith and teach the Bible, please pray for courage to say what needs to be said and faithfulness to say what God has entrusted to us in His word. Consider specific situations of evangelism, Bible Institute teaching, and small group Bible study.
  2. I posted a more complete prayer guide for church planting earlier this month. Consider using it to pray for the advance of the gospel and health of the (future) churches in Mbugani, Bukokwa, and Usagara (which is technically a young church, approaching 2-years-old).
  3. The church in Sweya has been without a pastor for four months now. Please pray that God would provide the ability and the wisdom to call their next pastor, that they would not grow faint in doing good works (1 Thess 5:14; Heb 12:12).
  4. We look forward to meeting our new Gassito and introducing her to you. Please pray for health and safety. Besides traffic, this potentially is another complicating factor scheduled for the baby’s due date.
