On Sunday, the 19th of October, Ruth and I went to the Nakuru church to visit and to minister.
Our Nakuru church was started in October of 2012, by Pastors Tony Wozniak, George Mungai, Joseph Mburia, and their families.
The town of Nakuru had been on Pastor Scott’s heart for a number of years. Nakuru is the third largest town in Kenya, as well as being the fastest growing town in the nation.
Pastor Tony and Karen Wozniak went back to the States in June of this year. At that time, Pastors Joseph and George became the co-pastors of the church. Both of these men have been with Calvary Temple for over 10 years and have proven themselves faithful in ministry.
Ruth and I arrived at the church just before the 10:00 service. In that first service, I shared with the people from 1 Corinthians 12, reminding them that we are placed in the Body of Christ where it pleases Him. In this generation, many people flit from church to church. It is as we allow the Lord to set us where He desires us to be that we can grow and be productive members of His Body.
In the second service, I shared from Ephesians 4. We saw that although we each have a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus, it is through the local fellowship and under the ministry gifts that have been placed there that we can grow, mature, and help the local body to increase and be strengthened.
After the service, Ruth spent some time with the ladies, while I spent some time with Pastor Joseph and the youth group.
When we left, we took Pastor George with us to Eldoret, as he had some business to attend to there. We had a very good time of fellowship together.
Although the church in Nakuru is small, we are seeing growth in the people’s lives. We are also seeing some growth numerically as the people reach out to their communities. We are thankful for the work that God is doing in our Nakuru Church.
