Let’s Reach Kenya Together

How would you like to be a part of KNMI’s June crusade in Kenya? Now, don’t worry: I’m not asking you to board a plane and fly across the ocean. I’m referring to your participation through your prayers and your partnership. Crusades are costly, as I’m sure you’re well aware. It costs to fly our team overseas; it costs for rooms and food while we’re there; and it costs for space to hold the event  and for equipment to help make the crusade possible. We have estimated that this Kenya Crusade (which is scheduled to be held at the base of Mount Kenya!) will cost around $15,000.

I know that sounds like a lot—and it is—but I also know that “with God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26). Where the Lord leads us, He will provide! And He provides most often through the sacrificial giving of His people. This works two ways: It blesses both the receiver and the giver! Those who give are sometimes challenged by the Lord: “I know your finances look small, but will you give anyway, and trust Me to take care of your needs?” It is an opportunity to “see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living” (Psalm 27:13). If you have been a Christian for a while, then you most likely know the truth of what I am saying. We all know the scripture that tells us that God loves a cheerful giver. We also know the well-quoted verse that begins, “Give and it shall be given unto you, good measure, pressed down, and shaken together…” (Luke 6:38). These scriptures exist because God wants His children to know that their generosity will never go unrewarded. God is the Ultimate Giver, and He delights when His children exhibit the same selfless characteristics.

So, with that in mind, if you are able to give to our upcoming crusade in Kenya, to help us get the Word out to the thousands who will show up to hear the Gospel message, then know that you are not only giving to us, but you are also giving to those precious people who need the Lord so much. You will be helping to bring them to salvation and new life through Jesus—and how wonderful is that!
