New This Week: April 27, 2017

April showers have brought green grass, budding trees, and blooming flowers throughout the States. May this new growth remind us of the hope we have in Christ and of our Great Commission calling to spread that hope. We also pray this fresh content on encourages you on your missions journey.

Providing Support. The recent three-month-long doctor’s strike in Kenya caused the few hospitals that remained open to almost burst at the seams—the patient census doubled for inpatients and almost quadrupled for outpatients. Despite the long hours and intense days, the Chaplaincy Team at Chogoria Hospital continued to faithfully serve and support patients and staff alike. And because of this outreach, many new souls continue to come to Christ.

Reaching Kenya. During the week of April 30 to May 6, available ministry opportunities in Kenya are being highlighted in the “Special Edition: The Harvest Field” issue of The Call. Please pray with us for more workers to join WGM Kenya in the Great Commission as we seek to save the lost in every corner of the world. (Both volunteer and missionary positions are available. If you or someone you know is interested in serving, contact
