Mission Living Waters
Dear Friends, what an amazing year 2012 has been, a real mile stone in the life of Mission Living Waters
, we are now a registered charitable trust. Also, the direction of the work we are doing has gained some real clarity during this year.
What started in 2008 as a one off visit has developed into a mission field that has now spread over nearly seventy kilometres in its reach. In the first three years we built two new church buildings, a pastors house, and some church toilets creating an infrastructure and base in the Malindi area where people are now hearing and receiving the gospel of salvation, the first Church building was in Milano and the second in Takaye. Both buildings seat around 250 people, the Church buildings are also used for the teaching of children during the week.

Takaye is where we are currently working with pastor Rachel (pictured above). She is nearing completion of her second year in bible college. As pastor of the Takaye Church she says her heart is to reach the children, feed the widows and orphan children, the sick and the poorest in her community. Mission Living Waters
is supporting the Pastor in each aspect of this work, including giving nursery children a start in education, a knowledge of God, and a hope for the future.
Hundreds healed & many saved in 2012 Crusades
This March I travelled to Kenya with my good friends, David Hall and Paul Verheul, for a series of three outside crusades, taking the gospel into some of the interior villages. What a great privilege for me to travel this time with friends, anointed men of God, and minister as part of a team. The meetings had taken 5 months to set up and were a huge success. We saw hundreds of people healed and many delivered from demonic spirits as we travelled from Takaye in the North at Malindi, then south through Musamarini until finally reaching the last crusade in the Vipingo village, close to the Mombasa area near Shariani. In Shariani we had a fantastic celebration with all the Church there , and our team and friends from Kenya that had travelled with us and worked so hard over many days.

The night we arrived in Kenya a 9 year old boy who had been born blind in his left eye was healed, what encouragement as we sat outside during supper, just the most amazing miracle, the first of many that stamped God's authority and His grace and loving kindness on this mission. A simple prayer of faith saw a young boy have his sight restored. During the crusades in the three weeks that followed, we saw the lame walk, a woman who was totally blind received her sight, a child born mute was healed and cried allowed for the first time at nearly 4 years old. There were hundreds more healed of many deceases, you can read and see more on the website, about 180 received Jesus as their Lord and saviour and there was much celebration and dancing as God revealed Himself in Power In these small village crusades.
The Gospel & practical works
We are now building a house of prayer in the Vipingo Village (Vhop)
there is a strong anointing on people in this place for prayer and intercession, the team already prays for Israel and the nations. Benjamin the team leader houses the sick in his tiny two room house; many miracles come through this amazing ministry. People stay,
sometimes for weeks or a month at a time and leave healed, made whole and changed forever. We have the most amazing plot of land God has provided. A team of intercessors in the Netherlands were suddenly lead to pray for land in Africa, not knowing why they simply prayed as they were lead, the next day I had a phone call from Kenya offering me prime land for an amazing price. The land 37mtr x 22 mtr will house VHOP and in time a toilet block as well as providing good farming land for the future.
Foundations have now been dug and work has started on building VHOP, this is a big project for us but we know it is God who brought it forward, so we are stepping out in faith knowing many will be saved and many will be healed through this amazing ministry.
