Rev. George and Lightness Odaa

Below is a passage from the recent quarterly report from Rev. George Odaa:

In the book of Hebrews we have this verse:

Keep your lives free from the love of money, and be satisfied with what you have.  God has said; ‘I will never leave you; I will never forget you’ (Hebrews 13:5).

Again, quoting from David, the word of God tells us that, I will not be afraid, because the Lord is my helper. What can man do to me?” (Psalm 118:6).

These and many other verses in the Scriptures give children of God comfort and courage to endure affliction and difficult times. We the family of Grace have seen the Lord fulfill these words in [our] life time however short. The family of Grace started with much assurance that it is God who wanted me to take a step of faith to plant this new ministry of caring for orphaned and destitute children. Just at the age of 34, God called me to take this challenge to do His work amidst lots of opposition from friends and some good Christian brothers. I took the challenges head on and started the GEM (Grace Evangelical Mission).

The GEM Home now is a light on top of a Hill bringing new life to orphans and needy children in our society. … God has used the ministry to bring honor and glory to His name.

Praise God for all that He has done in GEM Kenya. What he has done to his people. Thank you Lord for using dear brethren all over the world, to bring a rich fulfillment to our deep soul longings, to your own glory. Amen.
