Initial Connection with Oakseed

I learned about Oakseed International through my dear friend, Rev. Rick Horne, when I visited the US in 2019, and he talked to me about Oakseed’s work. In 2020, about a year after I met Rick, Oakseed asked me to join the serving team as a liaison officer, for which I thank God.

I rejoice in partnering with Oakseed because it’s an opportunity to help people’s physical needs and preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. I’m very grateful that this work gives me a forum in which the Lord Jesus Christ can be proclaimed even as we visit our partners and keep on telling them about the greatest need that mankind has, helping them to see Christ Jesus. We’ve seen quite a number of prayers answered as we labor together.

Notes from Liaison

“Serving with Oakseed has been a blessing to me

and allowed me to see lives changed. It’s quite a joy.

Seeing people’s lives changed and continuing to change

gives me great joy and impetus to walk on

and continue doing this good work…

Thank you very much for being there for Oakseed.

We look forward to your support, encouragement, and prayers.

We value that. Do not forget the work in Africa.

There is so much that needs to be done.”

Prayer Points

  1. Please pray for the gospel to take root in the hearts of these dear ones. There are quite a number who have not come to profess faith but who enjoy receiving physical help. We’d love to see, if not all, at least quite a substantial number come to the Lord and appreciate that this help comes from the Lord and that there is a greater help he gives than just the physical. Pray that this will be seen amongst many to the conversion of souls.
  2. Please pray for the Lord to give me the ability to discern as I shepherd these partners. As liaison, I am responsible for helping see that the funds are used well, the homes are managed well, and everything is fine. Sometimes, this is difficult to see, and I need God’s help.
  3. Please pray for wisdom for me as I work amongst them as a kind of pastor, encouraging them and giving counsel and guidance.
  4. Please pray that they will see the gentle spirit of Christ in me as I serve with them.
