Pastors’ Conference in Kenya
This blog is an exciting post on a wonderful time that Pastor Ron Zarou had in Nairobi, Kenya during a brief missions trip from February 1 – 9, 2019. Our senior pastor at Calvary Temple, Pastor Star R. Scott, had been invited to preach at a pastors’ conference. Unfortunately, as Pastor Scott was dealing with sickness, he asked Pastor Ron to take his place. This article details the highlights of the trip.
Pastor Ron’s goal was to encourage our churches, distribute books of Pastor Scott’s teachings that have been put into print, and speak at a pastors’ conference.
Nairobi Church Services
On Sunday, February 3, 2019, the Lord used Pastor Ron to preach a word in season at our church in Kwa Njenga. The second service was held at our church in Umoja. Afterwards, he had a good time of fellowship visiting with the Umoja church members and having tea.
Many church members shared on how Pastor Ron’s life had impacted them. Over half of the church was there from Pastor Ron’s previous ministry, having spent many years living in Nairobi himself as a missionary. Pastor Ron was very touched.
Fellowship with Brethren
Over the next few days, Pastor Ron met with several brethren who have assisted our ministry for many years. One brother is the owner of the Revival Springs magazine. For many years, he has included our articles for free and printed our books. They worked out logistics for distributing our books to a town called Nakuru.
Pastor Ron also met with Ellie Rop, who oversees 3,600 churches. He has given our ministry free time on TV and never asked for anything material.
On Friday, gave 300 books to a man named Yego. Additionally, each of the 600 men received 9 books.
Pastors’ Conference – Nakuru
When Pastor Scott determined he would be unable to come to Kenya at the time, and that the Lord said it wasn’t the right time, his speaking slots at the pastors’ conference were open. One of the men running the conference determined to give Pastor Ron all of Pastor Scott’s speaking slots.
The keynote speaker for the conference was Keith Holloway of World Challenge Ministries. Keith felt that God had a word for the pastors through Pastor Ron.
Pastor Ron spoke at noon, with Pastor Ben (senior pastor of the Umoja church in Nairobi) interpreting for him. Although his speaking time was cut from 120 to 50 minutes, the words were anointed.
Lunch with Our Kenyan Pastors
After the pastors’ conference, several of our Kenyan pastors joined Pastor Ron for lunch. They asked him to share on being a debtor.
They had a wonderful time of fellowship. Pastor Ron shared that this brief missions trip were some of the most fulfilling days he has ever had.
