Operation Food Miracle - Kenya: It's Lunch Time
May 8th, 2009
Operation Food Miracle - Kenya
James 1:27(NLT) - Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.
Okay, no more sad stories, long faces and hungry bellies. God has delivered! Once again, on behalf of myself, our Outreach Director, Keisha Carter and the rest of our team at The Cracked Door Foundation, thank you. We honor you again for embracing Christianity in its fullness. Not only is it our responsibility to remain free of the world's corruption but we have to take care of the less fortunate. The program has been an amazing success. We started off in June 2008 by providing Bibles in Operation Bible Blessing - Kenya. Then, we provided food last month in Operation Food Miracle - Kenya.

Now, we are pleased to show you what Pastor Mark and the members of his church have been doing to help the children in the community. They took the food provided to them and instead of just feeding their own families, they made sure that the children whose parents were no longer with them also ate.

Matthew 25:31-40(NLT) - "But when the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit upon his glorious throne. All the nations will be gathered in his presence, and he will separate the people as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will place the sheep at his right hand and the goats at his left. "Then the King will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the creation of the world. For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.' "Then these righteous ones will reply, 'Lord, when did we ever see you hungry and feed you? Or thirsty and give you something to drink? Or a stranger and show you hospitality? Or naked and give you clothing? When did we ever see you sick or in prison and visit you?' "And the King will say, 'I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!'

God has placed before us the opportunity to carry out His Will on the earth. Today, we thank Him that we had the "guts" to respond. He became our confidence and enabled us to do it.

In the words of Keisha; "Pastor Mark, these pictures have more than warmed our hearts, it just shows the greatness of our God. Thanks for sending these through."
Operation Food Miracle - Kenya
Pastor Mark has blessed our hearts more than he can imagine. It encourages us to see a man of God serve people the way he does. Maybe one day, when I grow up I'll be just like him. :)

We should also thank the women of the church who know how to cook. They take care of business and ensure that these kids eat something good. Happy Mother's Day to you and all the mothers of the world!
Operation Food Miracle - Kenya
Not only do the mothers of the church cook but they also ensure that the kids wash their hands. :)

Matthew 14:19-21(NLT) - Then he told the people to sit down on the grass. Jesus took the five loaves and two fish, looked up toward heaven, and blessed them. Then, breaking the loaves into pieces, he gave the bread to the disciples, who distributed it to the people. They all ate as much as they wanted, and afterward, the disciples picked up twelve baskets of leftovers. About 5,000 men were fed that day, in addition to all the women and children! John 14:12-13(NLT) - "I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father.

Lots of Food from Operation Food Miracle - Kenya
Do you believe? I sure hope so! Everything that was possible for Jesus Christ while He walked on the earth is possible to those who believe. We believed that a miracle would take place when we launched Operation Food Miracle - Kenya and now we have one. We didn't let the great challenge before our eyes intimidate us and we refused to let our Heavenly Father down.

Praising God for what He's done through Operation Food Miracle - Kenya
Mark 9:23-24(NLT) - "What do you mean, 'If I can'?" Jesus asked. "Anything is possible if a person believes." The father instantly cried out, "I do believe, but help me overcome my unbelief!"

To God be the glory for this wonderful miracle of provision for His people. He did this through us and we thank Him for choosing us as His vessels. I want to personally thank our Prayer and Outreach Director, Keisha Carter, for her dedication to the success of this project. Her heart of love for God's people has revolutionized The Cracked Door Foundation and now we're touching lives in a whole new way. We also would like to offer sincere gratitude for every one of you who supported this project with prayer and/or financial contributions. You have sown and now you will reap!

Here's what Pastor Mark had to say; Greetings to you in the miracle and wonder working name of the Lord and Holy Spirit. Our hearts and our souls are indeed overwhelmed and overflowing with joy that cannot be expressed by mere words and human mouths. The Holy Spirit is a witness to how happy, blessed, comforted and filled we are and feel, the Lord has done new things in us and for us as He promises in His word, "CALL UNTO ME IN TIMES OF TROUBLE AND I WILL SHOW YOU NEW THINGS, THINGS YOU HAVE NEVER KNOWN, SEEN OR HEARD" {Jer. 33:3}. This is exactly what has done.

He is faithful, He never and never speaks a lie, He will never change, He speaks a word and He watches over it to perform and perfect it. He has used you as "RAVENS" to bring the people of Kenya meat and water in times of trouble like He did with Elijah. When Elijah was distressed and wished to die, the Lord instead said to Him, "ARISE AND EAT." This is what has happened here, people starved until they wished they could die but instead the Lord has said, "ARISE AND EAT, KENYA".

We applaud and appreciate your wonderful, committed, sacrificial and long suffering efforts which made it possible for the miracle to happen. From this, we have also learned patience, persistence in prayer, waiting and depending upon the Lord and the Holy Spirit. We send our thanks and gratitude in a package to you and all those who played a part in the project, those who prayed, those who donated and those who sent the gift.
Operation Food Miracle - Kenya: A Smashing Success
We shall continually lift you up unto the Lord and you will ever remain in our prayers, our hearts and in our thoughts. Keep the wonderful work and encourage the prayer warriors to keep bombarding the kingdom of the devil with prayers so that he can be rendered powerless. Also pray that the Holy Spirit does His assigned duties in the lives of the people of God.

Stay blessed and protected from the enemy, we wish you all the best in all that you do as you continue to be more of service to the Body of the Lord. Fail not in doing good, knowing that your work is not in vain and you will reap. May His face shine upon each of you and may His goodness and mercies be reflected in your hearts, minds and service to Him. Hope to hear from you again. In His joy and blessings with you,
Pastor Mark.

Operation Bible Blessing - Kenya (Signed, Sealed and Delivered)

Operation Bible Blessing - Kenya (Signed, Sealed and Delivered)
Joshua 1:8(NLT) - Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do.

It brings me great pleasure to announce the successful completion of Operation Bible Blessing - Kenya. Last week, Pastor Mark Okenda and a team from his assembly in Southern Kisii, Kenya traveled to the Nairobi office of The Bible Society of Kenya and collected 175 spanking new Bibles. When we first connected with their 169 members who were sharing 5 Bibles, we accepted the responsibility of providing Bibles for everyone. I give God thanks for putting His purpose in our hearts and executing it through us. I give thanks to Keisha Carter, our prayer director for managing this entire project with excellence. Everything was done decently and in order from the beginning to the end. In addition, The Doorkeepers and the core of our prayer team under Keisha's leadership deserve credit for praying us through.

Ecclesiastes 10:19(MSG) - Laughter and bread go together, And wine gives sparkle to life- But it's money that makes the world go around.

The moment we first mentioned this project on our website one person decided to pay for every last Bible and then some. On behalf of The Cracked Door Foundation Inc, I would like to thank you for taking care of the finances for this project so quickly. It might surprise some people, but the only thing that's always free on this earth is air. Because of you, we provided 115 Ekegusii and 60 English Bibles. Now believe me when I say that the timer is almost done ticking before The Blessing explodes in your life. Now let's hear directly from Pastor Mark and his assembly in Southern Kisii, Kenya!
Operation Bible Blessing - Kenya (Signed, Sealed and Delivered)
Dear Servants of God, Greetings in the redeeming love of Christ. Hope all is well with you and the saints there. This is to share with you that we are in the joyous process of giving the Bibles to the church. Words of thanks, appreciations, praises, gladness and much happiness continue to come from the saints, both the youth and the adults. Yesterday we took half of the day giving out the Bibles. We started with the adults in the church and finished with the youth in the evening. I cannot write enough how happy and blessed everybody looked to receive the Bibles they have been praying for until this time when the Lord has wonderfully and miraculously answered our prayers. Messages from the whole church say that they wish you all the best. They pray for you faithfully. They wish you and all who donated the bibles good health and long life. May the rich God bless all your sources of income. May all of you stay fully sustained by the mighty hand of God and may all that you touch and find to do prosper. MAY YOU NOT FAINT IN WELL DOING AND MAY YOU KEEP THE SAME SPIRIT AND GOOD WORK AND CONTINUE WITH THE SAME LOVE FOR THE SAINTS AND THAT YOU WILL REAP IN DUE TIME FOR YOUR UNMERITED LOVE AND DEVOTED SACRIFICE.
Operation Bible Blessing - Kenya (Signed, Sealed and Delivered)
They say that those are the words they can send you and they send A BIG THANK YOU to all of you. They will always remember your wonderful gesture and mercies and this is a token that will ever be cemented in their hearts as long as the Lord gives life. They will never get tired of mentioning you to the Lord till the last BREATH! More words of encouragement will keep coming even from the youth as they start reading the Bibles. The orphans also who can read our Language and those who can read English said that this is the only miracle they have witnessed of the Lord in their spiritual lives. It is indeed enriching and nurturing to have the Word of God right in their hands and on their tables. They whole heartedly salute all those who were involved and who participated in this blessed and uplifting project of preaching the Gospel to the whole world. "WE ARE THE MOST BLESSED PEOPLE EVER" they say. I have scanned pictures showing the church receiving the Bibles and mind you we were gathered at our temporary structure. That is where we were issuing the BIBLES to the brethren. The camera man came late and was not able to take photos of all the members because some come from very far. By the time the camera man came some had left but I hope that what you will see will give a clear view of what took place as we gave the Bibles.
Operation Bible Blessing - Kenya (Signed, Sealed and Delivered)
You can see a picture of one of the men who recently got saved and was in need of a Bible. When he heard that the Bibles had arrived he came to my house at night and he asked me for a bible. I felt honored to present him with one. You can see how happy he looks to receive it, looking on is my father. We encourage you, wish you the best and pray that God blesses you. Twenty people have not received the Bibles because they were not present when others were being given. They were at the other rental building going on with the service and they will receive the bibles very soon.
Operation Bible Blessing - Kenya (Signed, Sealed and Delivered)
Please, if you have anything that you need to know kindly let us know so that we can share together. Otherwise, we are doing fine and we are concentrating on teaching the church using their Bibles. Pray for the conference we shall have next month that it may bear much fruit. God bless you richly and let us hear from you. Yours in the Lord, Pastor Mark.
