ST. MARK’S ANGLICAN COMMUNITY CHURCH-WORCESTER OFFICIAL LAUNCHING on 10/15/17 YEAR OF RETRIEVING and REPOSSESSING
I want to thank all the bishops for coming to grace this very important meeting for the launching of the newest Kenyan church in New England St.Mark Anglican community church Worcester,Massachusetts
I also want to thank all the pastors, their wives and their church members who are here this afternoon. What we are seeing today is as a result of the work that was done by Kenyans pastors 16 years ago in a meeting at Bishop Karaya’s home which gave birth to Kenyan American Pastors Fellowship [KAPF]. Rev. P. Kiama thank you for fighting a good fight . If God is on your side you will make it in Jesus Name.
Brothers and sisters I want to tell you that the unity of the Kenyans in New England and the whole of USA is our strength. This unity will help us to navigate our destiny as a community, and help us to find hope in our lives. Yes we have challenges affecting our unity as a community, but with your prayers I assure you that all the forces that are working against our goal will be scattered into irreparable pieces in Jesus Name.
Did you know that our good God is in business of sending fire into all the camps that gather day or night to harm our unity and our possessions? It does not matter how high the towers of Babel are before our unity I tell you now that they will collapse in Jesus name. It is time for all of us as a community to pray to our God that every activity that does not promote our unity and the design of God for our community to collapse in Jesus Name.
The coming together of over 25 pastors and bishops sent a message to all the Kenyans on how we are committed to destroying all the powers that expand problems in our community.
It is like we went there to make a covenant that as a community we shall repossess and inhabit every possession stolen from our community by the devil. We must destroy the lies of the devil that say we cannot make it. We are saying now that we can make it in Jesus Name.
Finally brothers and sisters Just as God had patience with Peter I pray that He will have patience with us a community. In Exod. 13:21 God is going before us to make sure that we are safe,He is also behind us too to make sure we are protected from the attacks of our enemies.
In Deut. 33:27 God is beneath us because He is our refuge, In Isaiah 41:10-13- God is with us to strengthen us , to help us and to uphold us with His right hand and finally God is in us [col. 1:27] as the gift of the presence of the Holy Spirit. We shall make it In Jesus Name.
