  • Kep & Debbie November 2022 Prayer Requests

    * Kep and Debbie thank the Lord for the 34 years the Lord allowed them to serve in Bolivia. Pray for the Lord’s guidance as they refocus their ministry toward Africa – working to train church planters as they go out to do evangelism in Muslim communities in North and West Africa. And developing ESI (Equipping Servants/ Disciples Making Disciples) in East Africa.

    * Pray for the 1,825 ESI participants in 168 groups meeting in 16 countries, with 2730 total graduates since beginning in 2002. Pray that these men and women will grow in their love for God and commitment to honor Christ by being true to His Scriptures with Jesus and His Gospel at the center.

    * Praise for the Kenyan pastors and church leaders who took the ESI training in September as they form groups to study through Romans in Nairobi and Mombasa.

    * Pray for the church in Bolivia that the believers will be true to Christ in their daily lives, and for the ILC Church leadership in La Paz that they will be passionate about Jesus to lead the church in gospel transformation – faithful to God’s Word.

  • Kep & Debbie October 2022 Update

    Greetings from Bolivia!

     

    We want you to know how much we have valued your partnership with us in the gospel over these many years. October 19 Debbie and I fly to Cleveland to refocus our ministry toward Africa. We value your prayers as we assist an Egyptian based ministry in North and West Africa and the Middle East, helping to train the leaders in their church-planting training schools.

     

    We also are starting to see traction with ESI in East Africa. The group we trained in Kenya in September is organizing to start ESI groups in Nairobi and Mombasa in January. Debbie and I will be in Burundi and Zambia in April, to launch ESI, and to follow up with the ESI Kenya groups. For all this we value your prayers.
