On Wednesday 7th March, the ACMI staff joined by CCIT staff had a luncheon to bid Charmaine Reimer goodbye and Godspeed.
Charmaine has faithfully served with ACMI in under Operation Hope for five years. She moves on and we pray that all she does be successful.
Over the weekend, we were involved in two major missions, one in Kitui and the other in Thika town, in Kitui school and Chania Girls High School respectively. A total of 399 students came to Christ in both missions.
Bishop Mulandi preaching in Kitui School Rally.
Thank you for always praying for us, May God meet your every need and keep you in Him always.
He who continually goes forth weeping, Bearing seed for sowing, Shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, Bringing his sheaves with him. Psalm126:6
And so it has been for us in ACMI. We have been in schools taking the gospel and heading back re energized and encouraged to preach all the more. Recently we were at St. francis Girls and Kalulini boys in one weekend, that saw about 500 students com to the lord and over 2000 of them reached. The following weekend, we ere at Mbitini Girls and Gitwe girls for challenge weekends that climaxed in rallies with other schools invited.
Bishop Mulandi was ministering in Gitwe Girls where 193 students came to the Lord while the number in Mbitini Girls was about 86 students. Glory to God!
Last week the staff were involved in general maintenance and cleaning in ACMI. After a long day’s work, some fun:
After the visiting teams left (Thank you all for the support and encouragement), we have hit the ground running.
This past weekend, we started with the high school missions at Baricho boys high school. About 3000 students were in attendance while 347 of them came to Christ. H.E. the deputy governor of Kirinyaga county, Peter Ndambiri attended the rally and took time to
encourage the students too.
We covet your prayers as missions intensify over the coming months. this coming weekend, we shall be in three different schools with rallies involving many more schools. Pray that this young people will accept the ways of God, and will be able to break free from all bondage that keep them away from accessing God.
Happy new year everyone! We at ACMI are more than glad to see this year and are excited of all that is ahead., exciting or otherwise. We have been encouraged by Bishop Mulandi to put in a different kind of effort for better results this year, to work hard, so to reap all that we are looking forward to.
After the Christmas break, we have come back energised and with hope in this new year. These past weeks much has already happened. We started off with a play dubbed Heaven’s Gates, and Hell’s Flames. It was held in CCIT church, a play by CITAM who incorporated some of our staff in it, and which saw over 100 people that committed their lives to Christ after watching the play. Glory to God!
Paul and Cindy Mullet and Bishop Mullet arrived in the country with teams that are working in Journey of Hope Home’s chicken project, working on the buildings and others are in ACMI working on the office block. The team also participated in a slum visit that saw 500 ministered to and shared a meal with them, and did a school visit, and shared a meal with the 400 pupils and 8 teachers.
Pastors Daniel Poland and Dave miller and his wife Ruthanne are also in and are participating in a 4-day open air meeting every evening from Thursday. We are grateful to God for their availability and sacrifice.
Over the coming weekend, there has been organised a couples’ seminar by some of the visiting ministers in collaboration with the local ones. The street meetings end on Sunday evening.
As we covet your prayers in our programs, may our God richly bless you!
The Operation Hope camp kicked off on Monday 11th December and its such a joy to have the 82 children in the compound and to impact them. As is the norm mostly, they are eager to learn and get closer to God.
Earlier, the children officers travelled to see the children in the eastern part of the country; in Emali, Machinery, Kalamba and Kambuu. They saw a hundred children with their guardians and gave them Christmas gifts.
Friends I’m back at it again. I realized that God had called me to the ministry of young people in the 70s. As we got into 1980s, I went into church planting, which was a good idea because now I have institutions that can take care of the people that I bring into the kingdom of God. But about 3 or 4 years ago, the Lord appeared to me. Among the things he reminded me of, is the ministry to the young people in institutions: colleges, high schools and even primary schools. As you go through the pages of this newsletter, you will feel my heartbeat as I share the gospel in weekend challenges, high school rallies, and spending time with orphans in the orphanage that we run. God, by His Holy Spirit has rekindled that fire in me in my old age and I want to be faithful to that calling. That’s why I share with you in this newsletter. In the last couple of weeks, we’ve held big rallies in the Eastern region of Kenya. In Kasikeu, over 3000 students in attendance, 673 stood and gave their lives to Jesus Christ. In Mwingi, over 1600 students attending a rally, about 100 came to the kingdom. And the story is the same every weekend. As the students get saved in big numbers, as we walk alongside Kenya Students Christian Fellowship (KSCF), we’ve realized that the numbers are huge and they need people to disciple them, to mentor them to walk alongside them in the schools. We have therefore started a Diploma course in School Ministry Chaplaincy. We’ve spent days with high school teachers in Makueni where now we’ve started training 95 teachers. In Kitui, we are doing the same. We may have a 100 teachers in the month of June to train. These will be given tools of discipling the young in faith in their schools and walking them to maturity. I ask you and plead with you my prayer partner, my supporter in ministry to pray seriously for this work as we prepare the Kenya of tomorrow. Over the last couple of years, the Lord has led me into offices where I’ve had the privilege to meet MDs CEOs, Managers, people who are running companies and corporations and running them well. Men of faith and men of integrity. Each one of them will remind me the moment in their lives when I met them in a rally, in a weekend challenge, in a youth camp where they made a decision to follow Jesus and that made a big difference in their future and in their undertakings today. Those are some of the men and women who are behind this ministry today. As I do the same today, leading many others to the Lord today, I am looking at Kenya in the future another 10 years from now. These young men and women will be the next Bishops, Pastors, Apostles, MDs, Senators, Members of Parliament. They are in these groups that I am addressing now. I guess in 50 years from today, somebody will look back and remember our efforts in the school ministry we’re doing today. So I do ask you before you put this newsletter down, pray for me and for our ministry. Send us a letter of encouragement and support, give a financial gift to support the ministry and I can tell you this , God will bless you in the ministry of African Christian Missions International.
