Kenya: Fred Ratumo – September 2009
Dear Brother Mike,
I am happy to share with you some of the photos of our recent campmeeting. I hope that you are doing well. The meeting was so wonderful and inspiring!.I was teaching on Health and Gospel in a place called Kitui. Then in Nairobi I taught on Health at the same time the one in Kisii I also taught on Health reform. People were inspired and praised God about it.
In Kitui I was teaching on the gospel how people should prepare to meet their God. In this I taught from the book of Amos 4:12, Isa, 32:15, 16, 35:4-10, Rev 21:4.
In all the above my prime aim was to present unto the people how good and admirable is heaven compared to this wretched world which is just but a snare to Gods’ people!
Concerning Health I taught them on the 8 laws of health through the NEWSTART program. I taught them that: N– Nutrition, E-Exercise, W-Water, S-Sunshine, T-Temperance, A-Air, R-Rest, T-Trust in divine power.
I showed them that this was the simple summary of sure health in any person. Through this, they came to see that God is the healer of diseases when these laws are followed and the Ten Commandments. See Exodus 15:26, Psalms 103:3. I also presented what the Spirit of Prophecy had to say on the subject of health. Of course all this was not without difficulties. In Kitui, there is nothing like rain fall, so to get water, it means a real struggle, that even cows start dying due to lack of water, women travel very long distances in search of water. Life here is extremely hard! Surviving means self sacrifice. This is one
of the poorest places in Kenya. There is an urgent need of a bore hole so that these people can get water for them and also their animals. So far this is among the big needs I saw in this area despite spiritual need since many are still behind concerning health reform and the true gospel as it is in Christ!
Yours in Christ,
