Brief Update of Our time in Kenya

Allison and I are back in Texas and we thank God for your prayers for us while we were in Kenya with my (Dennis) family. We had such a wonderful time; our only regret is that time flew so fast and just as we were beginning to have a feeling of settling down it was time to pack and go again. Such is the life that God has called us to live. In a way it is such a blessing since we always say that this world is not our home, we are just travelers. That has been so true in the last few months as we traveled across America and across the World!

Thanks also for the prayers that you made for us as we taught in the pastors conference at the beginning of November. It was such a wonderful blessing to teach these men that were so thirsty for the knowledge of the word of God!

Most of the 23 pastors were either current BTCP students or have gone through BTCP in the past. A few of them who had not done the program promised to join the class that will be starting soon. What a wonderful blessing to minister to such a teachable group.

For 4 days my friends Drew and Gayman and I drove almost an hour every morning to a small village in North Coast (Mtwapa). We spent the morning teaching and fellowshipping around the word of God, tea and local Mombasa foods. In the afternoon after an hour break we had question, answer and discussion time where the pastors had an opportunity to ask questions and go deep in application of what they had learned that morning.

This was my favorite part of the day because it assured us that the pastors were getting what we were teaching them. It also gave us as teachers opportunity to answer questions and clarify points that were not clearly understood in our teaching sessions!

Please join us in praying that whatever these men learned from God through us will remain in their hearts as a model of ministry. Pray that they (and us too) will not fall in the traps of pride, popularity and fame but will continue faithfully in humble service to our Lord, preaching and living according to the Word of God – The Bible!

In the AIR again

I cannot believe our one month visit in Kenya is over! We start our journey back to the USA tomorrow night (Wednesday 05 2007) at 9PM local time (Kenya).

The journey to America will be both exciting and and something I (Dennis) dread! Don't get me wrong I love America; it is the flight that I height is not very flying friendly. So please pray that I get good seats on the plane and will be good company to my lovely wife if I dont:)

We look forward to updating you more with stories and Pictures if and when we meet in person, otherwise email updates will still keep coming. Thank you for your prayers and support for Allison and I.

This month in Kenya has put excitement in us about getting back ASAP...the only obstacle we face right now that will delay our coming back will be financial support. We are at 60% of our target monthly financial support. Please pray that the Lord will provide for us now as He has done before both for His glory and in His time!

We are in Denton/Argyle Texas

Dear friends,

It has been very long since the last time I sent an email update. We are currently in Denton Texas meeting and catching up with old friends and making new ones. It has been fun going to friends home...some of the kids that I left crawling are now running around and talking – very cute little people – of course I can say that because I am 6.7’

My lovely bride has been making friends with the ladies in the missions office and taking care of us at home. I am a very blessed man to have Allison as my bride for keeps; there are mornings I wake up and still amazed at the Grace of God in my life – All I can say is God is good all the time!!!

My wife Allison has updated her Blog with recent news of the Omondi family, if you get a chance please go and read more about our lives here in Denton/Argyle Texas. The address is

Pray for the Omondis:

  1. Please continue to pray for us as we raise support that we can reach our Goal before we go back to Kenya in the spring of 2008 (between February and March)
  2. Pray that in our marriage we will have Christ at the center of everything and we will seek to serve rather than be served.
  3. Pray that our times with the Lord and each other will increasingly become a Joy and something that we look forward to.
  4. Pray for Cynthia Tomor as she raises support to join us in Kenya in God’s timing.
  5. Pray for Jill Senechal in Germany as she gets ready to go to Kenya to continue with College ministry in Fellowship Baptist church, Mombasa. She is currently not feeling very well and her wellness will determine her travels to Mombasa.

We thank God for all of you and appreciate your loving and generous support for me and now for us since the first day!

Photo Tribute to my Dad

I just posted some Pictures of my Late dad online please click here to see them if you want to see him

Thank you very Much

“Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?”
1Corinthians 15:55

I don’t know what to say but to thank you very much for your prayers. It is a wonderful thing to be saved and to have a savior that gives us comfort and hope in this time of sadness. God has really used you to comfort me. I cannot reply to every email that I have received...many of you have called and sent text messages from all over the world to let us know you are praying for and with us. I want to assure you that you have not prayed in vain, we definitely have felt and continue to feel your prayers as God has showered us with comfort and peace during this time of sorrow.

Most of you asked whether or not we will return to Kenya during this time. Unfortunately we are unable to travel at this time because I am still waiting for my immigration papers and travel permit. As soon as we get these documents we will be on our way to Kenya to join the rest of the family.

2 months or so ago my friend Peter Odanga went to Busia to see my dad and while there shared the Gospel with him. He asked him if he would like to receive Christ and he nodded his head yes and Peter prayed for and with him to receive Jesus in his heart. We praise the Lord for this (I realized I had not shared this story with most of you). This, to be honest makes the grieving process much easier.

This ordeal has also opened my eyes and brought my heart closer to my Lord. As I reflected on what has just happened...this week my father died but I remain not fatherless because God is my Father and in him I have a Father who knows no death and is Eternal and in Him my father rests in a land up yonder where God himself will be with Him. He will wipe every tear from his eyes. In this land there will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain...

I would like to finish with the lyrics of a song that has been of very much comfort to me. Thanks again for your prayers and support please keep them coming.

He Knows My Name (I Have A Maker)
Tommy Walker

I have a Maker
He formed my heart
Before even time began
My life was in his hands

He knows my name
He knows my every thought
He sees each tear that falls
and He hears me when I call

I have a Father
He calls me His own
He'll never leave me
No matter where I go
