NEWS FROM BROTHERS & SISTERS
This shows that there is nowhere else we can get eternal peace, only from God Himself. In this country and Africa as a whole there is no tranquillity. How I pray that all political leaders, not only in Kenya but in Africa and the world would, emulate the example of our Lord Jesus Christ. He was not after fame, he was not after earthly possessions, neither was He after pride. This makes Him to be the best, greatest, and finest person ever to have been in this world. As we always say, Jesus Christ is our elder brother and we should follow in his footsteps.
All Christians, not only politicians, should try to follow the example of our Lord. Let us have faith in these wonderful things and wait patiently of our Lord to come.

Thank you for the Christian books you sent to us through Bro. Haron Nasongo; indeed they have made me improve very much my spiritual life. I kindly request you to send me more such books for further growth in my spiritual life. I also thank you for the spread of the gospel throughout the world through these books. I pray that God may continue using you to spread the gospel in various ways.

Thank you so much for the Bibles with commentary and Bible Basics distributed to Ndalu Ecclesia. May God bless the brother who did the translation into modern English, which has helped a great deal the brothers and sisters taking English as their second language. The Bibles are in great demand but Ndalu need six further copies as we now have fifteen more friends studying for baptism, including five very old ladies aged seventy years. The reduced version of Bible Basics at the end of the Bible gives a short and fuller explanation of some important verses.

I am looking for the day when the God of heaven will set up a Kingdom that shall break in pieces and consume those that call themselves Christians without examining the Scriptures daily. (Acts 17:10) Let us be keepers of our brother's house, share all that is brought into the house of God equally and fairly without favouritism, sectionalism or tribalism. But let us grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To whom be glory both now and for ever. Amen.

I want to talk about God's special gift. God has given us a very special gift, but this is hidden to us because as human beings our minds are deceived and we see as if God does not exist. Psalms.14 and 53 say "A fool says in his heart that there is no God."
I accept that God's spirit, power and invisible energy provides us with real life. We are related to our Creator through His spirit of life and if He decides to take it away, we stop existing. The Bible says that God alone has the power to create and destroy. Our life is in the hands of God, we have nothing of our own to be proud of. Eccl.12:13,14. God has created us with a purpose, to fear Him, to listen to His commandments; whatever good or bad we do is written in our book of life.
If we fail to listen and obey His voice we are punished. Only through His beloved Son, Jesus of Nazareth, we have the gift of eternal life, Rom.6:23, "For the wages of sin is death, but God's free gift is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."` The God of the Bible does not lie. Tit.1:2 and Num.23:19 "God is not man, that he should lie or the son of man, that he should change his mind: has he said and will not do it? or has he spoken and will he not fulfil it"? The Bible says God has a plan for us to live for ever, if we truly know God and Jesus Christ - read John 17:3.
