We praise God, and give Him all the glory for the past 4 months. We have been very productive for “The Kingdom Purpose”, both Spiritually and Physically. There have been many challenges and blessings, but we know that they always run on the same track, so we praise God for his faithfulness in all things.
Physically, against a 50%-100% rise in prices since last year, we were able to get the tile roof on the lower part of the Team/Training House, and have the rest of the tile ready to finish the roof in January.
We are in the process of constructing a 35’x35′ Pavillion, in the center of the property, so we can begin having meetings and seminars on the Penuel property. The Team/Training House will allow us to house 16 team members from the U.S. on the property, and be available to minister in churches and schools in a 100 mile radius. It will also allow our teams to build relationships with the local people, which has not been possible in the past.
Most of the 4 months were spent building the Team/Training House. We used local workers, and taught stone masons, carpenters, and other tradesman new methods of building. This often took a lot of patience, but it was awesome to see them learn new things and then begin to teach each other.
The Spiritual blessings of the past 4 months have been, “Exceedingly, abundantly above all we could ask or think”. We had two ladies conferences and a marriage seminar. The Holy Spirit moved in a mighty way and we saw many ladies set free from the wounds of their past abuses. The couples in the marriage seminar were eager to listen , and learn, and desire us to have many more teachings on Godly marriage.
We were blessed to have Anne Millikan (our Board member from Indiana) with us for 5 weeks. She was a great help in teaching and in all aspects of the ministry, and we praise God for her.
In September, Ashley Sechrist was with us for 2 weeks. She ministered in the area Schools and God used her in a powerful way in the lives of the students. No one wanted her to leave.
Ric preached several times, and the last message the Lord gave him before we left, was on Grace and Faith. 38 people came forward, including pastors’ wives. Many realized that they had never truly understood God’s Grace.
Years ago, our Patrick said, “Even in their old age, God is using Ric and Jane mightily as they remain “FAT”.
FAITHFUL AVAILABLE AND TEACHABLE
We are at home for a couple of months to raise the funds to finish the Team house, and are trusting God to be able to return to Kenya in January. Thank you for your faithfulness to pray and give to “The Kingdom Purpose”.
In His Service,
Ric and Jane Taylor

This is a testimony we would like to share, from the Head of the Sunday School at Kakuyuni Redeemed Gospel Church.
“I thank the Lord for divine connection here at Kakuyuni. The Lord in his divine plans has connected us to Rev. Ric and Jane Taylor whom the Lord is using to touch and transform our lives. Their living testimonies and teachings have blessed us mightily. When we are announced of their coming we wait for them eagerly, knowing that they are caring a message from God our creator.”
“Our families are restored because of the couples seminars they teach. There is always a continuous momma’s seminar which has brought healing and deliverance from heavy burdens that the momma’s carry. Children are also ministered to as they bring many people who are talented in teaching children.”
“Many people have given their life to Christ through the teachings that they bring. The lives of many women have been transformed by the ladies seminars, and as a result, their husbands have now given their lives to Christ from seeing the good character of their wives.”
“The seminars are open to all denominations, and many people from other churches in the area come to hear the word of God.”
” Many of us who have opened our hearts to them never remain the same.”
May God bless you, Ric and Jane, with the desires of your heart, keep you in good health. God bless you, because your work for the Lord is not in vain.
In Christ Love, Grace
