James Kweyu is full of thanksgiving to God for his just-endedJuba visitwhere he engaged in various mission assignments in this Africa’s youngest nation.
“My trip involved project evaluation of the KadugliDiocese liaison office in Juba and the drawing up of the future collaboration of the diocese in relation to Humanity United. I also held meetings at the ECS office, where our form of engagement was discussed at length in view of the fact that the ECS office was previously in Uganda where we did capacity building for it,” reports James.

“ For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.” Matt 24:24
Over the last ten days, there has been an exposé by the Kenyan media about a flamboyant pastor who may have been asking for lots of money as donations and ‘planting seed in the Kingdom of God’ from many who flock his church. There have been claims of false miracles and other things which have caused a huge furore among Christian’s and even the wider public in the country.
Though this exposé may be good for awareness and precaution for believers and non- believers alike, it has long term effects of reinforcing apathy amongst Kenyans on the things of God.
Pray that the Christian Faith shall be emboldened and not invalidated, to preach the truth of Christ and manifest the kindness and compassion of Jesus Christ.

Let us pray for Margaret Oluoch, who has been collaborating with CMS-Africa as she campaigns for communities to be good stewards of God’s creation around their homes and in their communities.
Margaret has promoted tree-planting activities, and rehabilitation of riparian areas as a means of reducing soil erosion and controlling downstream siltation. She has worked with Mothers’ Union and various NGOs including the International Committee for Research in Agro-Forestry, among others.
Over the next few days, she is setting up a centre that would be a rallying point for community activities, serve as a secretariat and also a training centre. On December 31st the campaign will culminate into a tree planting for creation and gospel movement in MIWANI to help conserve OROBA River. Please pray that she gets partners at the community, national and international level to achieve this noble goal.
