Kenyan Security Officer: Trump is God’s Chosen

For years, Kenya, historically one of the strongest economic centers in Africa, has battled the rise of terror groups, such as ISIS and Al-Shabab, the difficulty of securing their northern border with Somalia, as well as meeting the needs of high volumes of displaced people groups throughout the country. Having spent collectively more than several months in Kenya over the past decade, I’ve had the opportunity to witness firsthand many of the challenges facing Kenya through my work with The Oasis Network For Churches.

This week, the conservative news outlet, Faithwire, released a shocking video from one of my recent trips to Kenya in which I interview a high ranking Kenyan national security officer regarding border safety under the Trump administration.  The story, which can be found HERE, picked up massive national reach after being tweeted by Tomi Lahren, a leading conservative commentator and Trump supporter.

Actually in Kenya we say that, ‘Trump is God’s chosen.’ Because by him being there so many things to do with terrorism and the spirit behind the Islam has been restricted.     -Officer Harrison Gnota

The original interview, which was recorded as part of filming of Miles Away, a new reality documentary that follows my work with The Oasis Network can be found here:

Grace is catching on in Kenya!

Below is an email that I received from a pastor in our network this week from Kenya.  I asked his permission to share this with others as I think it is a huge testimony to the power of grace (Jesus) in a person’s life.  

  Blessings.

Hello Pastor Lucas,

I’m amazed how the Lord has continued to minister to me concerning the message of the Grace. 
To be honest, I never understood why you people dismissed preaching about the LAW. It was my first time to hear something like that since I got saved. In fact I didn’t want to discuss about it because I had already concluded you were wrong.

But down the road, it’s getting more clear with new revelations concerning the LAW. I was reasoning a lone why Christ had to come if  at all the law was effective.
We see Jesus saying that I did not come to destroy the law, but to strengthen it. This means it was weak and it needed the LAW maker to advance it into another level.

I can see the people of that time pinning down others using the LAW, instead of helping them up. I can see the LAW helping Pharisees in fault finding Jesus himself without it helping them to know, He’s the LAW maker.

I can see the pharisees questioning Jesus over the Sabbath day without them knowing He’s the Lord of the Sabbath. I discovered the Sabbath day was only an envelop carrying the message of REST. And because they were not interested in the message of REST in the envelop, instead interested in the envelop itself, then use it to pin down others.

Now, Christ comes down to tear the envelop, throw it away and says I’m the LORD OF SABBATH (rest). Meaning we no longer need a day to offer us with REST. He confirms this in Heb: 4.3…..where he chooses another day, saying TODAY IF YOU HEAR  my voice harden not your heart to enter his REST. Meaning every day we need his REST.

Again I see the same  Jesus calling those that labor and are heavy ladenned to come to him that they may have REST in Mathew.

I see him promoting those who believe in him to be above the LAW but under the Grace.
I then see the working of the Grace when the woman got in the very act of adultery, who according to the LAW,  she was supposed to be stoned, but the GRACE saved her.

Jesus told them to throw the first stone if they had no sin.

Here, I see the LAW showing the sins of others, while the Grace revealing our own sins which can lead us to repentance. I see the LAW thirsting to kill, while the GRACE striving to save.

To this point plus many other cases in the Bible, I can see the deep revelation God gave the founder of this ministry concerning the GRACE. I can see the power of the grace.

May God bless you, because it’s through your affords to come to Africa that I got this message.

I preached this message in the church again when one member asked me concerning the Seventh Day.  It was an opportunity to explain to the church why you specialize in the message of the GRACE.

God bless you.

Welcome Sarah Way and Tia Brown to the OasNet Team.

For the last several months, OasNet has been seeking an intern to join our team specifically to assist with Global Pastor Outreach (aka Adopt a Pastor Program).  God answered that prayer with not just one intern, but two.  Sarah Way and Tia Brown attended the recent Oasis Granger Christmas Coffee House at Bella Vita Coffee.  They thought they were attending the event to support their good friend and singer/song writer, Seth Bible, who was performing that night, but apparently God had more in store.  Long story short, I had informed them to “keep their eyes open” for anyone who might be interested in assisting with some international ministry projects that we’re working on, as Sarah and Tia are both local college students (Notre Dame and Bethel College, respectively).  They asked a few questions about the program and I went on about the night.  Little did I know that God was stirring their hearts to join our team.  Later that night, they asked, “What if we are interested in getting involved with the project?”  And the rest, as they say, is history.  Sarah and Tia (pictured below) will both begin working for OasNet and Global Pastor Outreach in early January and will conclude their internship with a trip to visit the Oasis churches in Tampico, Mexico in June.  We are all excited to welcome them on board and to see what all God is going to do in them over the next several months.  To find out more about the Global Pastor Outreach or the Oasis Network For Churches you can visit our website at www.oasnet.net or contact our offices at 574-247-9800.

Huge Strides Made Towards Peace In Kenya!!

According to cnn.com, Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki and Orange Democratic Movement leader Raila Odinga have signed a 4 part peace agreement to restore peace in Kenya.  At this time the Kenyan Red Cross says the violence has claimed at least 863 lives and driven 261,000 from their homes since incumbent Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki claimed the December 27 election over Odinga. 

This peace plan is good news for OasNet, as we are supposed to be sending two small mission teams to Kenya in the first half of 08, one of which I’m leading.

OasNet: 40 at $40

OasNet wants you!  We are in the process of finishing up the OasNet partnership materials, complete with the promotional video (www.oasnet.net).  These packets should be out still in early 2008.  The first phase is to find 40 additional people to partner at $40 per month with the Oasis Network For Churches.  OasNet, as it’s called, exists to resource and equip local church planters and pastors with teaching, resources, and materials to help them carry out their call to reach the world with the GOOD NEWS of Jesus Christ.  Additionally, OasNet is a network of churches who believe that they can accomplish more together than separate.  Currently Oasis is already impacting pastors and churches in 3 continents and over 7 countries with the message of God’s love and grace. If you are currently part of an Oasis church or have been blessed by the ministries on this site or some of our affliates…I would ask you to consider partnering with us.  You can give any amount to OasNet, but we are specifically seeking out 40 people at $40 per month.  If you are willing to be one of the 40, please email me at Lucas@oasiscf.com or leave me a comment on this post.  Thanks in advance for your consideration and help!  GOOD NEWS to the WORLD, that’s our goal.
