BTV Update 10.28.11

10.28.11

Friends,

Just back from Kenya, and I wanted to share just a quick note and express my appreciation to everyone who is helping to make the ministry of Build the Village so successful. James and I visited the Kapsabet prison where we had the opportunity to share the gospel with hundreds of inmates. There was an outstanding response to the gospel message and a beautiful prayer of repentance echoing between the buildings. To God be the glory!

Additionally, we left 100 New Testament Bibles with the prisoners, providing a refreshing word of hope and eternal life. In the photo above, two women from the prison are accepting the bibles for the ladies (one in black stripes and the other in the black sweater) and the young man to my left (not in prison clothes) is accepting for the male inmates. FYI, the lady to my right is the assistant prison commander, and a Christian herself.

Later that day, we delivered nearly 200 Bibles to a deaf school in Kapsabet where every child received a copy. For them, they could not express their appreciation in words. But, to see their smiles, this spoke volumes! Thank you.

Please keep the unnamed prisoners of this camp and the children and teachers of the deaf school in your prayers as they work through many personal struggles.

Blessings to everyone,

Damon, Randa, James and the BTV Team, Kenya
