Dear Friends in Christ,
God continues to bless us through the richness of His infinite grace. The church family here in Stephenville, TX has been very gracious and supportive in their response to God’s Word. We continue to see several people come to know Christ and I am glad to report that God has entrusted to us the great responsibility of discipling many others who have been searching for sound biblical teaching. The demands of pastoral ministry have been great but God’s grace has continued to be sufficient for me. I am preparing to return to eastern Africa in July of 2013 in order to preach the gospel in Bungoma, Kenya. We will be working in the western portion of Kenya, near Mt. Elgon, to start 4-6 new churches in that area as well as training 20 pastors. There will be 13 brothers and sisters working on this trip from 3 different churches in Texas.
In July 2012 God used us greatly in the Mpigi region of Uganda to lead many to Christ and provide training for many pastors. A partnering group just returned from Kenya, where they enjoyed immense blessing with many professions of faith and 7 new church starts. The time spent in East Africa is a great investment in the growth of the kingdom of Christ. God continues to use us in the work in Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, and Burundi through the national leaders who continue to grow in the faith by the power of the Holy Spirit.
We know that the harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. May we continue to pray that God will send many workers into the harvest. Please pray for the laborers and the harvest on this important trip. If you would like to partner with us in any way please let me know.
Until He Comes,
Pastor Richmond Goolsby
