The Vision of Ukunda Missions School

For those of you who have been following this blog, I hope that the vision of Ukunda Missions School has become clear to you. 

The Lord is doing something powerful in Kenya.  Many Kenyan Christians are being mobilized to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ.  In the future, where will missionaries come from?  How many Americans are willing to risk their lives, leave everything, and preach the gospel of Jesus Christ in difficult places?  Unfortunately, not very many.  On the other hand, there is a great mobilization taking place in Africa.  African Christians are being called by the Lord to leave everything and preach the gospel. 

You can compare this to the parable  that speaks about the laborers in the vineyard (Matthew 20:1-16).  The owner of the vineyard came in the morning hours, looking for laborers to work in his vineyard.  Some responded to this call, and he promised to pay them a day's wage.  Later on in the day, he came  again looking for laborers.  And again at the end of the day, he came again looking for those who would labor in the vineyard.

 In the same way, the Lord has been looking for laborers who will work in His vineyard.  In the early hours of the day, at the day of Pentecost, He called the Jewish people, and some left everything to go and work in the harvest fields.  As history progressed, the time came when He called the British to go into the nations of the earth and preach the gospel.  The British sent thousands of missionaries into the earth.    Then the Lord visited America, and thousands of Americans responded to the call and went into the nations. 

Now, the day is coming to an end, and the Lord is still looking for laborers to bring in the harvest.  Unfortunately, many Americans,  Britains, and Jews, are no longer willing to respond to the call, so the Lord turns to Africa,  In Africa, there are thousands of willing laborers, who are willing to leave everything, to risk their lives, and to go and work in the vineyard of the Lord.  This is the vision of Ukunda Missions School, to help mobilize the African church in missions.  If we are successful, thousands of missionaries will be sent into the difficult parts of the earth.  Thousands of missionaries will be sent into Islamic nations, to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ with signs and wonders following.   

Those who are called to labor late in the day will be paid extra, more than they seem to deserve.  I believe that the missionaries whom God is calling and sending from Africa in these days, will walk in amazing grace, amazing miracles and power.   When others have grown tired and weary from their labor, those who are called late in the day will work wholeheartedly to bring in the final harvest.  

I am extremely encouraged by what has already been take in place in Ukunda Missions School.  Already, laborers are being trained here.  Already, they are beginning to bring in the harvest.  They are already planting churches in Islamic dominated areas.  They are already preaching the gospel without fear.  If we are able to continue working in this vision, many missionaries will be mobilized.  

If God enables you, would you consider giving a generous gift to this ministry as this year comes to an end?  I know that there are many worthy ministries that need your support, but I also know that God is doing something special here.  If the Lord lays it on your heart, please listen to His voice and give whatever he tells you to give.  

In January, we are beginning a three week evangelistic outreach into Islamic dominated areas along the coast of East Africa.  I believe that during this outreach, hundreds of Muslims will open up their hearts to the Lord.  Some will be chased from their homes as they do so.  We need to help them find places to stay, to train them, and then send them out again to preach the gospel.   Please prayerfully consider helping us in this endeavor.
