The Lawsuit in Kenya – Update

We were informed today that the judge who is hearing the case is requiring my son in law Michael Hallonda to PERSONALLY appear in his court room in Kenya on August 29th. Since he is mentioned in the civil action, the judge is forcing him to appear. This will place a hardship, not only on our ministry, but on Michael as well. But it appears that there is no other recourse.

The background of this case is that Kitale Children Department, some sort of children’s agency in Kenya, is claiming that we had the four orphaned children removed from Turkana County, similar to a State in America, and placed in an orphanage in Eldoret, Kenya, in a different County/state. Now, we have signed permission from the children’s nearest relative, an aunt, along with their Tribal chief who witnessed the signature and also signed the permission document. We also had permission from a Federal government Children’s official from Nairobi. All of these permissions had to be in place before the orphanage in Eldoret would allow the children to be placed there. We sincerely feel that we will prevail in the case, and that everything we have done was in line with Kenya law. However, we know that this “Kitale Children Department”, whoever they are, didn’t just accidentally find out about our rescue of these orphans. We have fierce enemies in Turkana Kenya because of what we broadcast on our radio station there. Priests from the Catholic diocese, and Seventh Day Adventists leaders, have all come to our radio station office to complain about things I have said about both of their false religions. Also, Kenya false prophet, Dr. Owour, has many pastors in Turkana, that hate our radio station, and the pastors that follow our ministry there. It would be impossible to know exactly who is causing this trouble for our ministry, but it is there nonetheless.  We wrestle against spirits/devils and not flesh and blood.

We thank you for your prayers for our ministry, myself, Michael and all the staff of Ekeyokon Radio (Watchman Radio) in Lodwar, Turkana, Kenya as we strive to preach the Gospel and continue to protect four innocent children from the wolves that would devour them. I will keep you updated as information comes to me.

  1. Pastor, I was sorry to hear about your wife’s cancer, and now this. This world is such a dangerous place, but definitely we do not fight against ‘flesh and blood’. There was a lady who had tried to take care of a cat that a family had left behind when they moved, and someone complained, so the lady was arrested!

    So if a sweet elderly lady, concerned about the welfare of starving animals can be arrested, and sentenced to jail, it’s no wonder far more serious charges can be brought against others for what amounts to no crimes at all–just made-up crimes. I’ll pray for all of you, and God bless you for the work you’ve done for the Lord, Pastor, and thank you!

  2. “But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it. Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”

  3. “Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin; That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God. For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries: Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you: Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead. For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit. But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer. And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins. Use hospitality one to another without grudging. As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified. But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men’s matters. Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf. For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.”
