Dear Fellow Believers,

 

We greet you in the majestic name of Emmanuel, Jesus Christ, God with us!

 

In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. (1Jo 4:9; Jo 3:16)

 

As many of you will remember, Mary McKeever, our friend and a dedicated Christian missionary with Worldwide Discipleship Association, has brought to our attention a great opportunity for reflecting God's giving love to the elderly overseas: many of the widows in and around the village of Orucho, Kenya, Africa need our help.

 

Mary ministers during the school year on the campus of Purdue University, discipling young college students in the teachings of Jesus Christ. She has also made several trips to eastern Africa, training indigenous ministers there in the Christian faith. It was on these trips that she established ties with a Kenyan pastor, Peter Onyango. By their connection, Mary has been able to help Peter in amazing ways to provide funds for a solid Christian witness in this very poor part of Africa.

 

Christian Concourse Ministries invites you to join with us in helping the elderly in Orucho Village. This is where Rev. Joseph Peter Onyango lives, near Kisumu, Nyanza Province, Kenya, Africa. Peter is a Kenyan pastor who has a burden for orphans and widows. He and the members of his fellowship have taken a number of elderly, very needy widows under their care. There are many who require assistance to survive, and Peter and his church have very limited funds to provide the mosquito nets, firewood, food and medicine that they must have.

 

It can get very cold at night especially during the rainy season. The following should help us visualize the scale of need: to keep the elderly warm in damp clay huts Peter needs a few sticks of wood a day. A "bunch" of firewood, about a day's worth of fuel, costs $2.16.

 

We can help them. Please prayerfully consider what the Lord would want you to do toward helping us help Peter in this season of love and giving! The lives of helpless widows are precious to our Master and we are His hands and feet! See our website for pictures and more info. Send your prayers for Peter to the Lord in Heaven and send your donations to:

 

Worldwide Discipleship Association Peter
Onyango's Account - “elderly”
P. O. Box 142437
Fayetteville, GA 30214

 

WDA will handle the transfer of funds to Africa and mail you a receipt for your contribution if you send it directly to them. They retain a reduced rate of only 4% of the donations for Peter to cover their expenses (a very reasonable amount in our opinion). If you have questions, you are welcome to call us at (757)714-3133. On Peter's behalf we thank you for your consideration.

 

Love in Christ and Merry Christmas to You!

He will rescue the poor when they cry to him; he will help the oppressed, who have no one to defend them. He feels pity for the weak and the needy, and he will rescue them. He will redeem them from oppression and violence, for their lives are precious to him. Psalms 72:12-14 (NLT)
