CONSERVATIVE MENNONITE CONFERENCE AND KINGDOM DRIVEN NEWSLETTER UPDATES!

-->Hey Guys!

As most of you know, Kingdom Driven Ministries is the vehicle in which we are using to do the Lord's work in Africa, as well as here in the States. Lord willing, we will soon be in Kenya/Uganda to further the Kingdom of God... but until then He has big plans for us here. We actually just returned home last night from the Conservative Mennonite Conference in Goshen, Indiana. We had a lovely time, and met some wonderful kingdom saints. One individual whom we had the pleasure of meeting was the president of Rosedale Bible College, Dan Ziegler. Charlton loved Dan's passion for the Kingdom, and we hope to have the opportunity to further fellowship and deepen our bonds in Christ with this brother and his family.

We are very thankful and appreciative that the CMC allowed KDM to set up a booth to further Christ and His Kingdom. Our booth had material written by Marc Carrier, and David Bercot. We sold the material at cost, but also had free resources available. Speaking of FREE... CONGRATULATIONS to Mr. Beachy for winning A Dictionary Of Early Christian Beliefs. He won this great resource by signing up for our newsletter, which entered him into a drawing. All in all, we had nineteen people sign up for our newsletter. Charlton and Bill (a KDM brother in Christ) had quality conversation with each and every one of them. We are thankful for you all! THANK YOU!

If you would like to sign up for our newsletter, which will have the amazing stories of what the Lord is doing in Kenya, please click here... 


Trust me, you don't want to miss out... and we need your prayers. :-)

Also, if you are interested in purchasing any material please email us at: the2819call@gmail.com


Please read the KDM Report below. This is what we handed out at the conference, and we hope to compile all the front line stories monthly and email them out.

Your Sister In Him,

Natasha

        KDM Report: August 1, 2012 – www.kingdomdriven.org

“Expand the Kingdom of God locally and abroad through training, church planting education, and ministering to the various diverse needs of the poor.”









-->
“Give to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to borrow from you.” Matthew 5:42

-->
“Give to those who ask. What a clear command. Poses a challenge when folks ask all the time and the more you say yes, the more they ask. Trying to strike a balance between needs and wants, and filtering out manipulation and abuse. Please pray for Cindy and I to be discerning and exercise wisdom. There is an assumption we are rich because we are white Americans, but in actuality we have very limited resources.” 

When I read this on our brother Marc’s Facebook wall, my mind reflected upon Peter’s words to the beggar in Acts 3:6: “I do not possess silver and gold, but what I do have I give to you….” Even though every financial request cannot be fulfilled, what we do have to offer is far more precious.

The Lord is doing amazing and miraculous things in Kenya. When Marc was in Mroki recently, he led six people to the Kingdom at one location alone. People are going through spiritual inventories, repenting, and are being baptized! Cindy is discipling women and having awesome progress in their village. Many of their neighbors are Kingdom Christians, and everyone notes how things have transformed since the Carriers have arrived. We even have new Kingdom saints who are branching out to different parts of Kenya. David, Joseph, Noah, and Godfrey, local Kenyans, recently went on a mission to the eastern part of the country. They were told to expect fifty pastors at a training conference, but found fifteen widows instead. Many were brought to repentance including a locally feared witch. A new fellowship has formed from that conference. Disciples are being baptized, home fellowships are being planted, and the gospel of the Kingdom is advancing as they go out two-by-two, Luke 10 style. It’s like the book of Acts coming to life in our time!


Here is yet another amazing story from the mission field in East Africa. God is glorified in this thrilling transformation in the face of great danger. But first, I must explain a title you will see in the below report, imam. “An imam is an Islamic leadership position, often the worship leader of a mosque in the Muslim community. Imams may lead Islamic worship services, serve as community leaders and scholars, and provide religious guidance.” Keep this in mind as you read below…
“Here is a great report emailed a few days back! Some info concealed for security reasons.

‘Hi Marc! I don't know how to call you but from my point of view you must be an apostle. Well, I am one of the former 3 Imams if at all you heard of it, who surrendered to the Kingdom message which was preached to us by beloved David in ______. We were baptized publicly and it brought rough time on us. We received threats to be killed by the rowdy Muslims so, we ran away with no intention of turning away from Christ whom we proclaim as now the Lord. David gave us Bibles and Shepherds Story books. We started a house church in _____ in one of our friend’s house who also accepted and surrendered and baptized him. We are living in a rental house, my house was burned immediately I ran a way from _____. They stopped paying me even for the work I was doing. I called David and he sent me some of his clothes for us and our children. This doesn't shock us, Jesus says it is blessings to be poor, I just read it Yesterday.
We have been secretly teaching this message to our Muslim families here and now we have 17 Muslims converted by the Gospel of the Kingdom. We are baptizing them tomorrow about 5 kilometers away from Muslim community. The strategy is that after baptism we send them to our extended families far apart to ensure that all our families have received this message. We are doing this immediately. I will be back to ______ evening to collect my documents I left with one of my friends .I will look for David and be back by _____. Now, though this is happening, the challenge is that we have no resources until we get on our feet again. This dear ones need bibles, Kingdom Expansion Series , tracts and shepherds books. If KDM can be able to support us for the time being at least 25 English bibles, 15 Swahili bibles and as many Kingdom Expansion Series and Shepherds storybooks as possible just for once because we are organizing to start buying ours with the funds that we are expecting. Please help us if this email reaches the head of this missions. Otherwise, blessings.

Follow up on the three Imams. Full confirmation. These are bonafide Imams of three mosques who publicly repented and were baptized. Many Muslims in attendance asked David to share this message with them Thurs. David is meeting with the new disciples today. I honestly have to believe this is an unprecedented historic event. Three in one day! Pray for all the members of these three mosques. This has caused quite a stir of confusion for these precious people. The mosques are in disarray. Pray for God's wisdom, love, truth, and protection as He continues to reveal Himself to the people of Kenya.”
