Ephesians 2:8-9 "For by grace you have been saved through faith and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast"

Money is tight, Christmas is coming, people are out of work, food pantries are stretched to the limits... REMEMBER who's really in control of our lives.

Hebrews 13:5,6

5. Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said,
"Never will I leave you;
Never will I forsake you."
6. So we say with confidence,
"The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid.
What can man do to me?"

I want to share a couple of special requests for prayer with all of you. The first is Hammond, a young boy who has been coming to my classes. He is only 13 years old and lost his mother the other day. I can't imagine how devastated I would have been had I lost my mother at that age. I am also concerned that he may not be able to continue to receive teaching to help him cope. He may have to go live with his aunt in the Western Province (about 4 hours from Nairobi). Please pray for him as he goes through this difficult time.

The second request is to pray or Joshephat, headmaster of the school in Kayole. He is in danger of losing the school. It's kind of long story, but as I understand the person that he rents the property from has not been paying taxes and the city threatened to take it over unless the taxes are paid in the next couple of weeks. If he loses the school it is unclear what will. He is looking into options for another place to meet but it is difficult to find one that is affordable. As you know the school is a big part of my ministry. It is where the teen class meets and where I teach one of my pastor's classes. I don't know what to tell you to pray for specifically, other than that God's will be done in this situation. If we are to keep the place, that funds will be provided and if we are to find another place that it be an good transition. Thanks in advance for your prayers. Stan
