God Does Great Things in Mankato, Minnesota

Sammy Wanyonyi speaks to several hundred
students at Mankato State on November 4th
Sachi- Student from Japan
"When you first visited our campus I wasn't a believer. But I came out to hear you speak. It was really powerful and touching!  Soon after, I repented and gave my heart to Christ.  And yes, life is so much better!   Now, I am serving God and people to lift His name high here in Mankato! I am happy seeing more people getting saved and becoming bold here at MSU! God is moving!! I thank God so much for everything He is doing here. Thank you for coming to MSU."

That was Sachi (right), a student at Minnesota State University, Mankato as she prepared to help with the follow-up process for other students who came to Christ this past week at our Flame Night sponsored by SWIM and co-hosted with various campus ministries.

Like several other students who came out to the event Friday night, Sachi is an international student from Japan. She was referring to one of my earlier campus visits when plans for Flame Night were in their embryonic stage. I had spoken to a group of about 14 students that afternoon, brought together by Maranatha Christian Fellowship. She was one of them. Now, Sachi is a vibrant follower of Christ.

MSU Students enjoy the moment

For 51 out of several hundreds of students that attended the Flame Night on November 4th, it is a day that they will remember forever. One in which they met and received Jesus Christ into their hearts as Lord and Savior. We rejoice in Christ's victory on the public University Campus.

For many others who attended Flame night but are yet to receive Christ, we believe their openness to come out and hear the presentation of the Gospel has ushered them closer to embracing the truth of Jesus Christ. It is our prayer that they will one day look back at that moment and, like Sachi, connect the dots to a new relationship with Jesus Christ. 

Sammy Challenges the students to receive Christ.
Fifty one students gave their lives
to Christ during the event
Please pray for the 51 students that came into a relationship with Christ to stand and grow in their faith.  Pray for the various campus ministries that are partnering with us in the follow-up process such as Intervarsity, Maranatha Christian Fellowship, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Life Family Church, New Creation Church, and many others working on the University.  One of the powerful outcomes of the outreach was the demonstrated unity in the Body of Jesus Christ as they help reach out to students in a secular arena.

OPEN FOR SPIRITUAL BUSINESS- Could COVID-19 open a window for Spiritual Awakening?

None of us wished for it. But COVID-19 delivers to our doorstep what is, perhaps, the greatest evangelistic opportunity of our lifetime. It is an unusual opportunity in the Twin Cities, North America, Europe, Asia, Africa and around the world. A scared world is open for spiritual business. The masks are off. People are open to hear that there is hope through Jesus Christ. For the church, the times we are in may have changed, due to COVID-19. But the mission we are on has not changed . The need to share the hope Jesus provides is now more urgent than ever.  Our nation is now the epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic. Severe cases and deaths are mounting from coast to coast. Doctors, general medical workers and other essential service providers continue to do all they can to stave off the pandemic. 3 million Americans have lost their jobs. Children across the nation and worldwide are out of schools. Our economy and other global economies remain on shaky ground. All professional s

A Medical Doctor With a Passion for God, a Love for People, and an Enduring Faith

Our Mission in Kenya Continued well. He is humble, he is joyful, and he works hard to make a difference among a Kenyan rural town's community.  That is Dr. Nathan Matasi, a gynecologist serving in Kitale town, Western Kenya.  There are hardly any hospitals in this part of the world.  The one government operated hospital in Kitale town serves a population of over one million people from the town and the surrounding rural farm communities.  Sammy and Gary share a moment with Dr. Matasi next to a corn field in Kitale on Tuesday morning before heading out for the prayer service in Nairobi, some 400 miles away.  Here you will find patients sleeping on the floor in overcrowded hallways, pregnant mothers sharing beds, and daily lines forming at the out-patient unit.  There are hardly modern equipment available for the few qualified doctors and nurses to use for diagnostics or treatment.  Majority of the patients can hardly afford to pay for quality medical attention. Yet it is

Orphaned Kids with Mt. Kilimanjaro-size Faith

Sammy speaks to several thousand believers in multiple services at NPC Church, Valley Road, Nairobi Kenya on September 14th regarding global missions For four nights, they had no electricity in their humble dwelling.  When we visited the Great Mercy Children's Center on the outskirts of Kitale town, Kenya on Tuesday earlier this week, the only food they had available was maize and beans cooked together.   Pastor Ken Kimiywe, Sr. Pastor of NPC welcomes Sammy to speak to his congregation during the missions emphasis Sunday.  For the most part, the children as well as their caretakers had been fasting and praying that God would provide some money for them to pay for electricity which had been disconnected as well as buy some food.  Other than that, they hardly showed any signs of distress.  Some among the ninty three kids at the center are as young as two years old. The older ones are in their early teens.  And they all displayed such great faith and confidence in God's a
