”In THIS is love, not that we have loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation (wrath-absorbing sacrifice) for our sins. (1 John 4:10)
En esto consiste el amor: no en que nosotros hayamos amado a Dios, sino en que él nos amó a nosotros, y envió a su Hijo en propiciación (sacrificio que absorbe la ira) por nuestros pecados. (1 Juan 4:10)

While we were conducting street outreach in Baltimore city on North Ave. on December 2, 2017 where we conducted a "Celebration for Jesus" at our Haven of Hope Community Garden we met a man named Reginald. Reginald lives on the streets, struggles with addiction, abandoned by family and recently lost his mother. He came to the garden and wanted to speak with Linda a member of our team, most likely he need a motherly conversation. Reginald was deeply depressed and was considering to take his own life. Linda spent much time with him listening to him, counseling him, praying with him and wiping away his tears. Later Jonathan came and shared with Reginald the Gospel, how we waste so much time here on earth living in rebellion against God and we need to think eternally. By God's providence we were there at that moment for Reginald to come to seek prayer and for him to hear the Gospel. How great is our God, sovereign in all things and the source of all goodness.
During our "Celebration for Jesus" in the inner city of Baltimore on North Ave where we served 100 hotdogs, 50 sandwiches and 125 cupcakes, we also spent time praying with people and sharing the Gospel. During that afternoon the children who were volunteering with us were playing with some of the neighborhood children. One boy arrived with his grandmother who was clearly high on drugs as she was falling over while simply standing with us. Our children felt lead to pray with this young boy. May God be glorified, a new generation rise up to go and preach the Gospel and we continue to pray for this young boy and his family that they will be freed from sin and each member of his family repent and come to Christ.
Dear Brother Jonathan and our dear friends and our lovely supporters and of all team,
Greetings to you all in the Name of Jesus trusting that you are all doing fine in the Lord Jesus Christ. We all appreciate your humble and kind consideration of the orphans and widows here in Kenya by showing us and the orphans plus the widows that they are also son and daughters of God and valued by Him God. This has deeply encouraged and challenged the orphans especially those in high schools who really did well in class performance as well as those in primary schools as we wait for others who will be sitting for their class eight examinations which we expect good results . Friends this noble work you have been used by God to do to us here in Kenya Bungoma.
The Decree Of God is His purpose or determination with respect to future things. We have used the singular number as Scripture does (Rom. 8:28; Ephesians 3:11), because there was only one act of His infinite mind about future things. But we speak as if there had been many, because our minds are only capable of thinking of successive revolutions, as thoughts and occasions arise, or in reference to the various objects of His decree, being many, they seem to us to require a distinct purpose for each. But an infinite understanding does not proceed by steps, from one stage to another: "Known unto God are all His works, from the beginning of the world" (Acts 15:18).
The Scriptures mention the decrees of God in many passages, and in a variety of terms. The word "decree" is found in Psalm 2:7. In Ephesians 3:11 we see His "eternal purpose;" in Acts 2:23, His "determinate counsel and foreknowledge;" in Ephesians 1:9, the mystery of His "will;" in Romans 8:29 that He also did "predestinate;" in Ephesians 1:9, His "good pleasure." God’s decrees are called His "counsel" to signify they are consummately wise. They are called God’s "will" to show He was under no control, but acted according to His own pleasure. When a man’s will is the rule of his conduct, it is usually capricious and unreasonable; but wisdom is always associated with will in the divine proceedings, and accordingly, God’s decrees are said to be "the counsel of his own will" (Eph. 1:11).
Colossians 3:8: But now you also, put them all aside: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and abusive speech from your mouth.
Ephesians 4:29: Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear.
Colossians 4:6: Let your speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with salt, so that you will know how you should respond to each person.
1 Peter 3:10: For, “Whoever would love life and see good days must keep their tongue from evil and their lips from deceitful speech.
The Hope Movement had the God-given opportunity to assist the feeding center in Chiquimula, Guatemala in partnership with Mis Manos Tus Manos Ministry. On Friday, November 3, 2017 we served between 80 and 150 children. This feeding center managed by our friend William Lemus is in a community located in the trash dump. There are such much needs in this area and we pray that with your support we can continue to work with them to share the Gospel and love to those in need.
Soli Deo Gloria (Glory To God Alone)
This Sunday until Friday The Hope Movement in partnership with Life Source Church and others will be flying down to the keys to share the love of Christ by helping to rebuild a church and homes that were destroyed by Hurricane Irma while also sharing the Gospel. Keep us all in prayer and those whom we will be serving.
Soli Deo Gloria (Glory To God Alone)
La doctrina de la Trinidad, simplemente, es que Dios es absolutamente y eternamente una esencia que subsiste en tres personas distintas y ordenadas sin división y sin replicación de la esencia.
Cada persona de la Trinidad posee toda la esencia indivisa de Dios. Este hecho significa que las tres personas, aunque distintas entre sí, son iguales en cada perfección (Atributo) de la esencia divina.
On Saturday as we were working in the Haven of Hope Community Garden on North Avenue in Baltimore City we were playing worship music and landscaping. As we worked a man came to us and wanted to talk. He said he just got out of jail because he and his ex-girlfriend got into a fight, he is living on the streets and while in jail for two weeks his mother passed away of cancer and he missed the opportunity to see her. He said she was in the house dead for days and no one checked on her. As he spoke this hard man broke down and cried like a child.
He lives on the streets and came by to tell us that in the evening he sits in our garden and he feels close to God. We prayed together and later we gave him $2 to buy some hot dogs but before he went to get some food he helped us for about an hour watering the plants.
