Last week our church family prayed for 45 women in Kenya who were to come for training at the Empowering Lives Training Center that Cornerstone helped to expand as part of the NEXT campaign. Let me tell you what happened as a result of our prayers:
Some local politics got in the way and so only 22 of the 45 arrived this past Monday at the Training Center. ALL of them were brewers and sellers of illegal alcohol and without the hope of Christ. By Tuesday evening, ALL of them decided to surrender their lives to God and what a week it was!
They learned new skills for business, agriculture, and baking all integrated with more teachings from God’s Word.
Two days ago they graduated from the week long training and their lives have been completely turned around. Here’s just a few of the comments that were made possible because of your gifts to the NEXT campaign and your prayers:
Anne said, “I have had no peace before but now I have a lasting peace!”
Margaret Kiprono said, ” I got saved on Tuesday morning at 11am and what I learned is going to change not only me but my entire family.”
Margie Chemwalo read 2 Corinthians 5:17 to the group and then the whole group said together, “We are changed completely. We have come out of darkness into the light.”
This is such great news and more prayers are needed because – the 27 women who did not come this past week are already booked to begin their training in a few weeks on October 5th!
Thank you for your prayers as we partner with Empowering Lives to see lives changed and empowered for now and eternity!”
