Mission Update: The Radfords in Kenya

Nathan, Carrie and McKenna Radford

Dear praying friends,                                                                              April 6, 2010
Another month has come and passed so quickly, and we thank the Lord for His blessings to us. We would appreciate your continued prayers for us here, both within the ministries, and also for our safety and health. We appreciate so much each person who prays for us, as this is much needed. We also wish to thank everyone who sacrificially supports this ministry with finances. You are a great blessing to us. This update will share current ministry progress as well as prayer requests.
We would appreciate your continued prayers for the ministry in Rafiki. I have been teaching and preaching the Word of God, and would desire prayer for this work. The Word of God has power and we trust it will bring the desired effects and changes in people’s lives when they hear and receive it. Hebrews 4:12 states “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” I have been teaching on many aspects of the church, and one major prayer request I have is that the Lord would provide faithful followers who look to Him and trust Him for their needs. D.L. Moody once said “Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.” We would appreciate your continued prayers for this ministry.
The Annex prison is continuing to go well. We are now over half finished with the course “Firm Foundations – from Creation to Christ.” The men seem to be really getting much from the teaching and growing spiritually. We want to thank each one of you who prays for, supports, and assists the ministry there. It would not be possible without your assistance and we thank the Lord for you.
Carrie and McKenna are both doing well. They both have birthdays this month, Carrie’s on the 15th and McKenna on the 26th. Lord willing, McKenna will be two years old, which doesn’t seem possible. What a joy it has been to have her in our family, and we would appreciate your continued prayers for each of us as we serve here in Kenya .
Please continue to pray for us and the many challenges here. We desire to be faithful to the work here, and faithful to the calling. 1 Corinthians 4:2 states “Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.” May we each be faithful to the work that God calls us to do, wherever that may be. God bless each of you.
Until next month,
Nathan, Carrie & McKenna Radford
Kitale, Kenya, East Africa
