Dear Friends in Christ
Several months ago I wrote an article on the importance of testimony. In fact this was a message I preached last August in Australia and it was the message that was on my mind as I made my way back home from the UK just this week. In 3John we see the testimonies of three people. First of all Gaius, a man who the great Apostle John desired to follow a good example. For him to do this John sets before him two testimonies to choose from. First of all, Demetrius v12, who received a good testimony from everyone and whom ' the truth itself', bore testimony too. Then secondly, there was Diotrophes ' who loved to be first among them ' v9. It is suspected from certain scholars that Gaius was a member of Diotrophes assembly and that John was persuading him not to go down the same road of this man in his attitudes towards others.
Today the 5th of November, Ebyown took delivery and had installed the new Generator donated by Moriel supporters from the USA. The Generator will enable the whole site to have power during the frequent black outs experienced during thunder storms and whenever the decrepit South African electric system breaks down. We at Ebyown would like to thank those involved with the installation and provision of this valuable piece of equipment. May the Lord Bless you.

Flying over the Volcanic Crater of Mount Kilimanjaro has to be one of the most awe inspiring moments of my life. The Boeing aircraft circled around for 13 minutes giving everyone a perfect view of this great mountains icey slopes. All this thanks to a lady called elsie who the co-pilot wanted to impress. I knew then that my own brief love affair with kenya was going to produce something really special.
A Kenyan Pastor had a revival meeting in Eldoret. Many hundreds were saved by Gods grace and after the service a young women came and asked the Pastor a question. She said "Now how do I eat?" The Pastor said to her, "what do you mean? You don't look hungry, you look well fed". "That's true she said, but you don't understand. Until I got saved this evening I fed myself through prostitution, now I can't do that. Tell me Pastor how shall I eat?" Poverty does wicked things to people. The story of this lady really touched my heart and gave me an understanding of how things work on the ground level in the poorest regions of Kenya and Tanzania. This ladies story is a challenge to the church as it operates in these areas because this lady is just one of a million stories of poverty and hardship.
Good news, today we started two new projects. The building of Aletheia community church new building done in a Traditional Africa thatch and also Ebyown have ploughed the back field to grow its own potatoes, Sweet corn, butternut squashes and salad vegetables, Please pray for these two projects that the Lord blesses them.

Lyn and I have just come back from a month in the UK where we shared at different churches up and down the country. It was also an opportunity to spend time together, rest and recharge our batteries. As ever we are thankful for the hard work put in by Dena in arranging venueÃ‚ and for the invites from various churches who gave us great hospitality. It was also a time where we could catch up with family. Lyn had not seen her dad for a year and even though his Dementia is evident he was in good spirits, put on weight and in a happy mood. It was also good to spend time with Anthony, his wife Liz and our grand son Levi and also seeing their preparations for the new child in January. Aaron and his fiancÃƒ ©e Erin are also busy preparing for their wedding on March 28th 09. We had a blessed time with them at Conwy and sharing at Ainsdale Evangelical Church where they worship. But at last we had to come home, time travels so quick when you're having fun.
This has been a very busy and exciting few months with so much good news happening. First of all though my time in the UK and Australia was really blessed and I would like to thank Reddish Christian Fellowship Manchester, Church of the Redeemer Swansea and Normandy and Tongham Christian fellowship for their hospitality and support during this time. I would also like to thank Aunty Marg and all the Australian churches who hosted me during my stay. I was also able to spend a substantial amount of time with my two sons living in the UK and of course our grandson Levi who get bigger every time I see him. Good news, Ant and Liz are expecting child number two.
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
First of all I need to say thank you for all the donations that have come in for the establishment of Ebyown Children's Village Tanzania. I am overjoyed that God through you has supplied the resources for this great need.
Many calls have come in to all our Moriel offices and questions are being asked of Jacob regarding the progress ahead. So this letter is to bring everyone up to speed.
Greetings in the wonderful name of Jesus our Messiah and Savior.
We have all had a very busy and exciting month with me going to the UK on itinerary and also receiving friends from Pittsburgh USA. I will tell you more about this later.
