To all who have stood with us in the ministries of StoneHouse Ministries International. Please pray for us. We have been under heavy spiritual attack. Last Sunday at StoneHouse Nakuru, was our best Gathering ever. All the members of Nakuru Church, pledged themselves to revealing the testimony of the Kingdom. We believe that our Father heard them. Unfortunately the enemy of our souls was listening as well.

The day before yesterday, thieves tried to break in StoneHouse Sewing Center and steal our sewing machines. It was foiled because the lady we rent from, woke up at 1:00 a.m. in the morning and screamed, hearing the thieves trying to break in. Her screams alerted the neighbors who chased the two men off who were attempting the robbery. 

Last night, April 6, 2017, at 1:00 a.m., an electrical fire broke out in one of the businesses down the street and destroyed half a block of businesses and houses, completely burning down StoneHouse Nakuru gathering place. 

The fire destroyed everything including our caretaker’s house. Elizabeth, her daughter Modesta and her six year old son Jesse, lost every personal possession they owned. They were left with nothing. Everything in the church building was a total loss, but thanks to our Father’s grace none of our people were injured. 

The quick moving fire destroyed six homes beside ours, and later, we found out that three of the neighborhood children were locked in one of those houses with no one watching them. Thanks to our God, the neighbors broke the door down and rescued them before they were killed by the fire.

Yet, we know that all things work for our good and are praising our Father for what he will do. We too can say... "It is well with our soul". Pray that we hear clearly as to what to do next. We know our people will have to pull together now and we feel this will build them up spiritually.

The Nakuru church is where all our SMI meetings took place, like conferences and leaders meetings and this calamity will definitely create some hardship.

We will need to rebuild our gathering place. Our people have taken in our caretaker's family and we are sure there will be some good hearted readers who will help us take care of her needs. We are just so grateful that they were spared. (That's Elizabeth in the middle of the ladies sitting down and her sister Zippy on her left who took her into her house. Zippy is a widow with 2 children.)

Please pray how you can help us in this tragic loss. We do know that even this will turn out for our good but we will need your help. We ask that you continue to pray for us, as we continue advancing His Kingdom... No weapon the enemy throws at us will prosper and every thing we encounter will propel us forward in His Grace. 

Again, remember to pray for us that we may find our Father’s heart, as we labor to take care of our members and Elizabeth’s family.

Many thanks for your prayers and much love from the StoneHouse Family of disciples.
