We ministered in western Kenya, northern Tanzania and completed an intercession assignment at the Uganda/Congo border. The Lord had various assignments for us on this trip at each of the locations we traveled to, along with some assignments that we were unaware of until we reached a location.
We started at Busia in Kenya and did some teaching for church leaders as well as the local church community. Our primary reason for being at Busia was to release the fire, which we did at an evening crusade at the Polytechnic ground in Busia. This was a powerful moment. The Lord had shown us that Busia would be the place from which the fire would start and spread over Kenya from west to east, Busia to Mombasa. The fire will also move through Tanzania in the reverse direction, from the east to the west, from Zanzibar to the west into Rwanda and then into the Congo.
From Busia we traveled to Kisumu where we spoke to pastors and at a youth camp for two days. Again we found the youth to be hungry for things of the Spirit and God moved in a mighty way including numerous healings and spiritual encounters for the youth. While we were staying at Kisumu the Spirit lead us to a park in the centre of town to pray and prepare the ground for what God is about to do. This was also powerful and one of our African leaders heard the audible voice of God during this prayer time. We also saw many angels present at the park as we prayed.
After Kisumu we traveled to Homa Bay to visit and encourage a Christian brother. We found the town to be under a clould of darkness and again the Spirit lead us to a park overlooking Lake Victoria to intercede for Homa Bay. We brought down two spiritual principalities over the town and region and are now preparing to send our African Leaders back to the town to carry out evangelistic meetings. There will be light that comes to Homa Bay and the darkness is going to recede!
From Homa Bay we traveled south to the Tanzanian border and after some delays we eventually made it across the border to a church meeting in Sirare Tanzania. Again the Lord touched the people in many ways and we saw healing angels deal with the majority of the people who asked for healing, which was a blessing as we had little time before we had to return to Kenya in the evening. The Lord had told us before traveling to Africa that our primary assignment for Tanzania was to meet a man at the meeting who would be aligned with our ministry. Our East African leader who traveled with us was also shown the man's face prior to the meeting and so we had confidence in the man we connected with. We were able to pray for him before leaving.
The final part of our East African assignment for this trip was to unlock the Congo. We flew to Arua in north western Uganda to achieve this. There were three border crossings in the Arua region and so we relied on the Spirit to lead us to the right one. We prayed at this border and saw in the Spirit that when the fire crosses from Rwanda to the Congo, there will be such momentum and it will rapidly spread across the 'green heart of Africa'.
This trip was much different to any that we have made previously. We came across a level of opposition that we have not previously seen, to the point that seemed ridiculous at times. But we remained obedient and completed all of the tasks the Lord asked us to do. We know that significant preparations were made for the coming move of God's Spirit that is going to impact East Africa and beyond. What a privilege it is to be involved in His work and to see Him overcome the schemes of the enemy!
