From Kenya Africa: I am 18 years old and of the Maasai people in a remote part of Kenya, Africa. I am the firstborn of 13 children. My parents are peasants, and we entirely depend on animals and crops for our family supplies, which sometimes is not reliable. As a result of drought, all our livestock died and crops failed, leaving us desperately in need. So I have been dropping out of school, because my father is not able to pay my tuition. I have joined him in taking our cows in search of green pastures.
During a visit with a friend in our local town, I found access to the Internet. Through Google search I found the For My People Ministry website, and my eyes and heart were drawn to the Sabbath articles. After revisiting the website several times, I decided to write to Becky and Ernie for more explanation on the subject. They sent me two booklets by email: Why God Said Remember and Is Sunday Really Sacred? These upset my former belief that all days are the same. After checking hundreds of verses in my Bible, I was totally convicted that the seventh day is the Sabbath. I am not alone in this spiritual pilgrimage. My friend has joined me in studying and exposing this truth to others.
Our first Sabbath service was held in our home with about six people attending, excluding children. My mother is yet to be convicted but ready to study with us. My father is not a member of any denomination. Many people are interested in learning about our newly found truth despite some discouragement from others. We have great hope for many to come into the truth of the Bible and to come out of men’s traditions.
We need your prayers for the Lord’s guidance and blessings as we strive to keep His commandments in faith. God bless you all.
