God's love for us - The fuel for our Ministry

Eph 3:16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, Eph 3:17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, Eph 3:18 may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, Eph 3:19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Eph 3:20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, Eph 3:21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

Paul's concern for the people he ministered to bled through his prayers. You can hear a person's love and concern for you when you listen to how the plead to the Father on your behalf. Paul's prayer for the Ephesian church was not that they would excel in materialism and the accolades of this world but that strengthened in their inner beings, Christ dwelling in them, they will be rooted and established in love and to grasp how wide, how long, how high and how deep Jesus loves them. 

Friends this is our prayer to ourselves and to the Pastors and Church Leaders we teach. It is useless to amass knowledge of a savior that you don't know and love. Worse still you are not sure whether He cares for you or not. God's love to human kind truly surpasses knowledge! Borrowing from a Sunday School Song: "It is so deep you cannot go under it, so high you cannot go over it, so wide you cannot go around it; oh wonderful love." 

If we and those we teach are able to grasp this - it will make it easier to not only believe what we teach but also apply in life daily what we are teaching and learning. So we pray this same prayer for you, for ourselves and for those that God has graciously brought to us to teach both here in Kenya and Tanzania. 

Please pray this for Serve Kenya as you look through the pictures below. 

Jerry Barton from Denton Bible Church came this month to help me teach BTCP book 3 (New Testament Survey ) Always a blessing to have him here. Here he stands with one of the Pastors and his wife. Pastor Emmanuel and Abigail. They are both students in our class in Tanzania. 

We had all our afternoon classes outside because of the heat and its just so much better to learn the Bible under trees :)

Teaching in progress

We are trusting God to be able to buy tables for this class to improve on the learning environment. If you feel led to help in this please get in touch with me and I will let you know how you can do this.  

Jerry Teaching here with Pastor Kallinga interpreting for him. Jerry helped us in starting this class in the spring of 2012.  He was overjoyed to come and see the work he help begin flourishing by God's Grace.  

Students listening attentively - They are very engaged in class and it is a great delight to teach them. 

Tanzanians are so giving - every time I go to they must send me back with gifts for  Allison and they cannot wait for her to come with me one of these good day. 

Here is 14 of the 18 students we have in the Tanzanian class. Ben posted close picture before to see them click here
God is good and praise Him for the opportunity to serve Him. Thank you for partnering with us in prayer and giving in this great and wonderful call of teaching pastors in East Africa.

Pray to the Lord of the Harvest...

I have been in Nakuru for the last over one week. And as I prepare to start the journey back home to Mombasa, I cannot stop thinking about the words of  Jesus in Matthew. The harvest is is one thing to listen to this verse preached in a sermon on a Sunday morning but another thing to live in the visible reality of it daily!

I spent this last week in Nakuru teaching Youth Pastors on the subject of Discipleship with a group of Short Term Missionaries from Alabama and Georgia. It was really fun and a great break from the Mombasa heat - I wish the family could have been here with me to the enjoy the break from heat as well:(

Anyway the most chorused remark by the over 50 participants who came was that they had not only been discipled but when they look into their churches they see no one qualified to disciple them. My heart broke, even though I knew that this was the case; it's just different to know that today I leave but there is no hope for them to grow in the Lord - humanly speaking - or is there?

Well, at the end of the conference I spoke to the leaders who put the conference together and shared the vision of training leaders with them. They were very excited that for about $150 a pastor can be trained and equipped with material for his ministry. Most of the participants said that the reason why they were not discipling is because they did not know how to do it and had no Biblical know-how to back them up. 

After the meeting with the leaders we agreed that they will share the vision for training with the youth pastors and pastors in this area and we will continue to look in to how we can begin a BTCP class here in Nakuru.

Please pray that the Lord will:
  1. Continue to make it clear to the pastors here for their need for Bible Training 
  2. Raise a man/men here who will have the burden to lead and to teach the classes if and when they starts. We have a few leads - praise God for that as you pray.
  3. Send out harvesters into the harvest field of Nakuru.
  4. Grant us journey mercies as we travel back home - the visitors to America and I to Mombasa.
Thank you for your partnership with us in this journey - God is good all the time! Here is a few pictures of the conference - ENJOY as you PRAY!

The first meal with the team from America - God bless you guys for coming !

False Preachers

In my morning routine of waking up checking my emails and Facebook posts etc - I came across this song and it reminded me in a very powerful way why we are in Kenya doing what we are doing - Please enjoy the song and be blessed by it. Pray for us because we are competing with the forces of darkness as we battle the "enemy within" the camp in false teachers. To many here they are mistakenly called our brothers and sisters but really all they are is WOLF IN SHEEP SKIN.

Even though we live in a Muslim concentrated area our greatest threat to the Gospel of Jesus Christ is not the Muslims but the so called prosperity preachers of TBN. The singer of this Rap Shai says in this song and I agree with him fully “I ain’t really trying to start beef, but some who claim to be part of his sheep got some sharp teeth...” I just pray that this will bless you the way it has blessed me.

BTCP Tanzania (2013)

Last year we traveled about 4 times to Tanzania to see the prospects of starting a BTCP class there. After much prayer and talking with the pastors there we decided to look into starting a BTCP class in Mwandege Tanzania. The need for pastoral training in East Africa cannot be emphasized enough - I remember these men and women thanking us with gifts every time we went and left to come back to Kenya. They were so happy that a "School" came near them that was affordable, accessible and most importantly did not remove them from their families and ministry.

In a meeting last year we talked about starting a class there in March 2013. As you are reading this update Ben and Peter Mutemi are there currently teaching BTCP Book 2 (Old Testament Survey). The class has started and it will be going one week every month for the next 2 years. 

Ben and Mutemi left Kenya on Saturday last week and will be there the whole of this week and come back on Saturday evening. 

Please PRAISE GOD for:
Ben waving bye before boarding the bus to TZ
  1. The opportunity for teaching pastors and church leaders in Tanzania 
  2. Safe travel to Tanzania for both Ben and Mutemi
  3. The heart and desire of the Tanzania pastors to receive Bible Training
Also please PRAY for:
  1. God to use Ben and Mutemi and keep them healthy all week as they teach OT Survey 
  2. God to provide for future trips to Tanzania - we are going to be going there once every month with our interns and teachers in training to expose them to ministry opportunities in East Africa and also to give them opportunity to practice what we are teaching them. 
  3. Our contact person in Tanzania Pastor Nixon Kallinga that the Lord will prepare him to be the future teacher for our classes there. 
  4. Safe travel for Ben and Mutemi as they come back from Tanzania on Saturday
Thank your prayers and support for our ministry since the first day - God is good!!!!

Kenya Decides

Thank you so much for your prayers for Kenya. I woke up early this morning and after walking the dog, I headed out to go to the polling station to cast my vote for the very first time in my life. It was a very pleasant process even though I stood in line for 3 and 1/2 hours. There were many church members on the line and time to catch up and just have small talk. 

Yesterday I preached a message on the responsibilities of Christians in Politics and Secular government. If you would like to listen to the message please click here... 

In the mean time let us continue praying for PEACE in Kenya and acceptance of whoever will be elected to become our next president, country and county leaders. God is in control so NO FEAR!!! 

So far apart from a little mishaps here and there, everything is generally calm, patient and peaceful. God is good!

Serve Kenya is ONLINE NOW!

Serve Kenya is NOW ONLINE! After many years of trying to get a website for our Kenya ministry we have finally managed to carve out time out of our Busy Schedule to build one and even though it is not completely finished yet we feel like it is at a good place to start informing people of what we are up to. Thank you Earnie Jackson for your contribution in making this happen.

For a while now the face of SERVE Kenya has mostly been the Omondi family and Ben Warren - giving the impression that we are the only ones in that team. We have more people in the team and we would like you to know them, interact with them and pray for them as well. We have a Kenyan Couple, James and Jacinta Muthee and a Kenya single lady, Betty Anyango in the SERVE Kenya team.

Thank you for your continued prayers for us and our team here in Kenya and we pray that this will be an easy place for you to come to at your convenience to get more informed about what is going on in Kenya.

Please feel free to share this page with all your friends and family - it is

BIG Prayers needed for BIG decisions

Dear Friends,
I hope you are all doing well since the last time you read from us. If you have read our family blog lately you know that Allison and Anjela made it back to Kenya safely and are happy to be home and to be with B.J. again. After dealing with bad respiratory infections just before and during their travels they are finally well again.  Everyone is doing well but we still have yet another week til our whole family will be together again. By the time I (Dennis) return to Kenya it will have been 4 months of separation for us as a family. So needless to say I am looking forward with much anticipation to being reunited with my family. Allison and the kids are doing fine and Allison and Anjela are slowly adjusting to being back in the Mombasa heat and all that pertains to it:) It has been an unusually difficult transition for them compared to other times but they are persevering!! 

I, on the other hand, woke up in Dallas this morning at our team mate Ben's Parents home. We are flying to Washington, DC today to attend a meeting that could change the face of our ministry tremendously. I cannot disclose much detail at the moment because I have none, but what I can say is that we are looking to partner with a ministry that is teaching pastors in most parts of West, Central and East Africa to do ministry in Kenya. If all goes well we may be overseeing over 40 BTCP classes in Kenya which is a great leap from our 5 at the moment. 

So without saying much we desperately need your prayers and the Lord's guidance in the next few days! Pray for Mike Scheer (The Missions Pastor, Denton Bible Church and SERVE International Director), Chris Cobble (Associate Missions Pastor, Denton Bible Church and BTCP Coordinator for SERVE International), myself and Ben Warren as we we travel today for this meeting. Pray:

  • We will have safe travel and less airport frustration as we fly to DC
  • God will give us wisdom to be slow to speak and quick to listen to His voice as we meet to decide which direction to steer the ministry of SERVE Kenya.
  • This will be a time of bonding and encouragement as Ben and I spend extended time with each other and with our bosses. 
  • The Lord's Will will be done as we meet to map out a partnership with this ministry. 

Thank you for your prayers and for your support for SERVE Kenya since the first day! God bless and let us know how we can pray for you as well. 

Dennis (for Allison, Anjela, and B.J. too)

Do you have our New Prayer Card?

Finally part of the family is reunited - we are praying for the day when we will all  be together again. Soon!
We are glad to announce to you that after almost 72 hours of travel, layovers and airport transfers Allison and Anjela have finally made it home to Kenya safe and sound! It was a sweet reuniting with BJ..He loved having his mama and sister back. Dad will be on the way soon. God is good all the time and we praise Him for that!

Dennis' long awaited finger print appointment with the immigration department has finally been set for February 8th and that's something to praise God for! He is hoping to travel back to Kenya soon after that. Pray that these two weeks will pass by quickly and we will be together soon!

Our New prayer card
We were able to see some of you during the Denton Bible Church Missions Conference and receive and give hugs but due to the short nature of our visit this time we were not able to see most of you who did not make it. We would like to get our new prayer card to you. If you would like to receive it, please send us your current mailing address and we will send it to you and also together with it a brochure explaining briefly what we are up to in Kenya. 

We would like to pray for you and your family as well. We realize that as our prayer card remind you of us that a picture of you or your family will also be a reminder for us. Could you please send us via email a picture of your family, names of everyone and if possible birthdays as well. We will print this and put it on display in Kenya to remind us of those who are laboring with us in this work. 

Thank you so much and have a blessed day!

This Week...

It has been a joy getting to reconnect with the old friends and missions/church family these last to weeks and to be poured into and renewed both physically and spiritually. Enjoy the pictures:

Anjela got an opportunity to sing in the kids Choir. It was a blessing for and for her because she never gets to participate in such activity in Kenya. At least not by a professional choir master :)

Pastor Bryan Collins was a huge blessing when he talked to us about suffering from his own experience of  finding out, walking with and loosing his wife to cancer in  a matter of a few short months. What a better pastor to talk to us about suffering than him. It revived our souls in light of all that has been going on in our lives. 

The elders at Denton Bible Church together with a team of faithful women from the church organized a wonderful  luncheon for all the missionaries just to show their appreciation of what we do in the field. 

Happy moment with Anjela missing BJ and wishing he was part of this BIG family reunion but God is in control and knows what's best!

Every time we have come back home God has blessed us with snow on Christmas. Where we are in Ukunda Christmas is one of the hottest days of the year. 

My dear lovely, Beautiful wife wonderful blessing from God 

The founder of Denton Bible Church Mel Sumrall . Mel and His Wife Patty  started the church in 1977 the year I was born :)

Sweet Reunion with the Team in Texas

Jerry Barton and Family - Jerry Comes to Kenya  every year to teach BTCP and Pastor training conferences . He and his have been a wonderful encouragement over the years.

Some of Anjela's favorite people in the SERVE Team...Lambert kids and the Scheer boys!

Missions Conference week and Travel Plans

This week has been an exciting week as we have spent the whole week in Denton in fellowship with all of the other Missionaries from Denton Bible as we have laughed together, cried together, ate together, played together, prayed together and encouraged one another. The theme of the week's teaching was Perservance through trials and suffering and we were surely convicted and encouraged by God as we sat under the teaching of Tommy Nelson, John Henderson and Bryan Collins. Anjela and Allison have been sick with bad colds and sore throats this week so please pray they will fill better before they travel next week. They will be leaving to go home to Kenya and reunite with B.J. next Wednesday the 23rd while Dennis remains in the States for a few more weeks to finish some immigration fingerprinting. Tonight begins Denton Bible Church's 2013 Missions Conference.  We would love to see you there. Click on the picture below for a link for more information:

Happy New Year and Dennis Heart Update

Happy New Year Everyone! We pray that you all are bringing in this New Year with much JOY in our Savior.

After a difficult few months, we have much to praise God for as we begin this new year. Many of you have been praying for us and asking about our family and Dennis' health so wanted to send you a quick update. Dennis arrived just before our cold WHITE Christmas in Texas (YEAH!) and spent his birthday (the 26th) in the hospital having a T.E.E. This is a procedure that looked more closely at his heart to determine whether he needed urgent mitral valve surgery again. To our excitement and praise to God, which was a great Birthday present for Dennis, we found out that his valve has deteriorated but not so significantly that he needs surgery right away and that he could probably wait a year or more to have the surgery. And then yesterday after following up with Dennis' normal cardiologist we were told that the only thing he needed to do for now was to increase his daily aspirin dosage, exercise, stay healthy, and not think about planning for surgery yet. The heart symptoms he was having in Kenya were more likely stress related and he will just need to have his heart checked every six months. We are so thankful!!! After such a tough few months for our family this was refreshing news to hear.

We miss B.J. terribly and our hearts ache everyday we are apart but he is doing well and having a lot of fun with the sweet family he has been staying with in Mombasa. We praise God for all of those who have been giving him such tender loving care while we are away.  Allison still has a few more weeks of treatment left and then she and Anjela will return to Kenya to finally be with him again. Dennis will have to remain in the States for a couple more weeks for immigration paperwork for his US reentry permit before joining us back home in Kenya.

We again wanted to remind you of the upcoming Marriage Conference and 2013 Missions Conference at  Denton Bible Church.

We hope to see you there!

A Different Kind of Miracle

Thank you so much for praying for us during this extremely difficult time in our family...

As you probably already know from our FB updates or from calling me that the US Embassy has denied BJ a travel VISA to the US. We were so certain that after they told Dennis which document he needed to get and bring to the appointment and after he worked so hard to get it, that they would issue the VISA without problems. So we were very shocked and devastated to say the least when he was denied.

It doesn't make a lot of sense to us right now but the consulate or whomever Dennis had the interview with kept saying that we couldn't prove and he couldn't be confident that we would return BJ to Kenya in two months and that he has never allowed a child to leave Kenya that is not fully adopted. Dennis told him everything and pleaded as best he could but it was obvious the guy had already made his decision before Dennis even spoke.  His decision was firm and final.

Bj is a happy boy!! What a blessing!
I was able to speak with the case worker at Congressman Burgess office today and she told me she was emailing and contacting the Embassy to figure out what happened and to get us more info but she said due to Christmas and the timing of things she was certain she wouldn't have a reply for me until at least next Thursday. 

At this point in time we have done all we can do and know to do and have accepted God's answer to the prayers of many people. Today we have had to think about what to do next and after much discussing and praying and thinking logically about things this is the plan we have come up with for now...and with it we will just take one step at a time

At this point Dennis' heart condition needs to be our focus so Dennis will be arriving into Dallas on Sunday evening. B.J. will remain in Kenya with Betty and our dear missionary friends the Grossmann's and the Thompsons. Betty will travel back with him to Mombasa on Monday and stay with him with these two families until we know what's next.

We will spend Monday and Christmas at the Clark's just resting and sleeping and then Dennis will have a Trans esophageal Eco-cardiogram (TEE) procedure done on Wednesday morning Dec 26th - his Birthday:() at Presbyterian Hospital in Denton. This procedure will look at his heart more closely and we will know more then the way forward as far as the urgency of surgery or not.

We will just take one day at a time and go from there in determining whether I go back to Kenya immediately and be with BJ or if I remain with Dennis in Denton or just what exactly to do next. Pray for wisdom! 

Our hearts are surely aching and many tears have been shed today but we know and trust God is at work and knows what He is doing and has HIS perfect plan in this. We pray that as we have gone through all of this and continue to do so that God is using it for HIS glory and that through it all we would respond to this situation as redeemed loved children of God and that He would give us strength to live out the gospel and that many people might draw closer to The Lord as a result!

Here were the last two updates from Dennis put out on Face Book. The second was a response to several emails we got from people saying that this can't be God's will and that we need to be careful in how we say that, because it might cause some to doubt God's goodness...

1.UPDATE 9:25AM: God's WILL has been done! The Embassy said that since the Kid is still in the process of adoption they cannot issue him with a visa because there is no guarantee of return for Him. Please know that even though we are greatly disappointed God's will has been done - We don't know WHY right now BUT one thing we are sure of is that His will is Good, Pleasing and Perfect! PLEASE KNOW THAT and BELIEVE that with us and for US. THANK YOU!

2. Dear friends I realize that our response to BJ's denial of visa by the US embassy is NOT the normal response - We all like to praise God only when things are going right. A commitment to Jesus DEMANDS that we relate to Jesus not only when He gives us what we desire, need or want but we relate to JESUS FOR WHO JESUS IS! 

When these things happen we need to be careful that we don't sin by grumbling and complaining but putting on a spirit of patience and Gratefulness for all the things that God has graciously given us. I believe that for every one thing that God "chooses to Deny" us He gives us much more! 

Please understand that the knowledge of this does NOT keep us from anger and disappointment but in our anger and disappointment we need not to sin. The words of Job who LOST everything compared to a denial of visa by the American Embassy is especially humbling - and I Pray that I will by the strength of God adjust my attitude to disappointment in light of what His Word teachers me:
Job 2:10
Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)
...“You sound like one of those fools on the street corner! How can we accept all the good things that God gives us and not accept the problems?” So even after all that happened to Job, he did not sin. He did not accuse God of doing anything wrong.
Everything that Happens either God causes it to happen or allows it to happen and for that we are thankful - OUR GOD IS IN CONTROL and I pray that this little experience of ours will encourage you in whatever situation you are in - God is good all the time!

Thank you again so much for continuing to walk this journey with us in prayer! We pray that we will live out God's WORD and HIS truth during this time! Please keep speaking TRUTH to us! We need it!

Allison, Dennis, Anjela and BJ

BJ VISA Update

Hello Prayer Warriors!!

This is just a quick note to update you on the progress of Dennis and B.J. getting to the States. Today has been a rollercoaster for sure! Today the US Embassy contacted us and gave B.J. an expedited VISA appt for tomorrow but then an hour later in the middle of the excitement and rush to pack up and get a quick flight to Nairobi, the Embassy called Dennis back to say that they needed another document from us besides the passport and court order. They needed a document stating we have clearance from the Department of Children's court or something like that?? At this moment we are unclear of the details. So as I type this Dennis and BJ are on a flight to Nairobi and will spend the day tomorrow in Nairobi trying to figure out how to obtain this required document the Embassy wants. After that we hope the Embassy will give us another VISA appointment quickly.

Please keep praying! We have already seen God do so many miracles up to this point. And now it is very evident and even more clear to us that through all of these hurdles and more and more steps that God is at work and that HE is going to make sure all of us knows just WHO is in control and just WHO is piecing this whole process together and just WHO has a perfect plan and perfect timing.  HE is Lord and we will continue to TRUST HIM and know that HE is working for our good and HIS glory!!

  • Praise God that progress has been made and the Embassy has responded to our VISA request and is working to help us.
  • Praise God for every person involved who has been there to help make all the details happen and things move forward.
  • Praise God that through some dear friends HE has already provided the finances for plane tickets! We are so greatful!
  • Pray that tomorrow that God will give Dennis wisdom and will direct him to the right people and right places to get this required clearance!!!
  • Pray we will not grow tired and weary as we trust in HIM and grow in perseverance and patience!
  • Pray that through this stressful time Dennis' heart condition remains stable and that he would not experience more heart palpatations through the stress.
  • Pray for BJ to remain calm and a good boy during all of these things and as Dennis travels with him and carries him around town to all he required offices.
  • Pray that GOD will truely get the glory and draw many people closer to Himself as they are on their knees on our behalf! Its exciting to watch God at work! Its never just about us!
  • Pray that our family can be reunited soon and Dennis get the necessary medical treatment and attention he needs.
  • Pray for continued financial provision.

For those on Facebook, keep watching our status updates for up to date progress and prayer requests. Thanks for all the prayers and encouraging comments!!

God is good all the time!
We love you all and appreciate your support and prayers!

Allison (on behalf of Dennis, Allison, Anjela and B.J.)

End of Year Update


It is with much gratitude and thanksgiving that we write and thank you for standing with us in fulfilling what God has called us to do here in Kenya:teaching and training pastors and church leaders. God has truly blessed the ministry and done more than we have asked HIM in this last year. It’s been so exciting to watch HIM work and to be involved in what HE is doing.

Most of you are familiar with the challenges that we are facing as a family with health, adoption, security in Kenya, etc.  When we look back at these last few years, we have been encouraged and  have understood in small ways what Paul meant when he wrote 2 Corinthians 4:7-9:

"But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power
is from God and not from us.
We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair;
persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed."

The Joy of the Lord has truly been our strength!

We delight in sending you our family prayer updates, but this is a special letter to make you aware of two very specific needs our family has right now:

1.PRAYER: Praise the Lord after an exhausting process, B.J. now has a passport!! That hurdle is over but now we must pray that the US Embassy will expedite our request for his VISA appointment.  Dennis and B.J. need to get to the States as soon as possible (preferably before Christmas!!) so our family can be reunited and Dennis can be evaluated by his Cardiologist to know when he needs to have heart valve surgery.

2.FINANCIAL: The ministry in Kenya is growing tremendously; more BTCP classes, expanding into Tanzania, the Tommy Nelson Center, hiring of SERVE interns and other staff, not to mention growth of the church at Word of Life Fellowship. With this growth comes an increase in financial expenses and we must bring our support up to funding those expenses. God has always been very gracious in providing onetime support. However, due to ministry growth and these other recent unforeseen challenges, our support account has dwindled significantly, and the ministry expenses and our emergency travel and medical needs continue We would like you to prayerfully consider partnering with us through a one-time gift as part of your end-of-the-year giving.

If the Lord lays it on your heart to give towards this venture, please email us at

We praise God that you continue to stand with us in this journey to make Christ known to the nations (Kenya, Tanzania and beyond) and our Lord glorified in whatever circumstance we find ourselves. Please know that your prayers for our family and for Kenya, and your monthly or one-time contributions make you a partner in this work. We pray that one day the Lord will open the door for you come to Kenya and see with your own eyes what these emails and updates cannot do justice in portraying.

We also wanted to remind you of the upcoming Denton Bible Church's 2013 Missions Conference. We all hope to be there and hope to see you there too! Here is the link for more information and to register for the conference:

WE love and thank you!
Merry CHRISTmas!!

Dennis, Allison,Anjela and B.J.
