"I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds." -John 12:24
We received word last night. A seed had fallen to the ground.
I share today in mourning, in hope, in faith, looking to the harvest and asking you to join me in prayer.
The Kremer family, Ebel and Lora with their precious children appear to have been the target of the attack. Thieves broke into their home on the YWAM base and Ebel, a missionary from Holland, was killed.
Ebel had a vision to build 12 large homes for the unwanted and neglected children of Kenya. These homes would be occupied by a mom and dad who would care for 12 children as their own, raising them with love and hope. His dream began as the first house was completed and the 2nd is in process. Ebel left a legacy of obedience, generosity, love and laid down his life for his Jesus.
Will you grab hands with me today and pray. Pray for Lora and their small children. Pray for all of those serving at the Athi River base. Pray for Ebel's vision. That what the enemy meant to destroy by killing, would surpass even Ebel's dreams. That the seed that fell to the ground would produce a harvest. A harvest of Kenyan children being raised in hope, in Jesus, walking in the ultimate love.
"I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. The man who loves his life will lose it, while the man who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me."
- John 12: 24-26
