Excellence begins when we know that being good or competent alone won't carry the day, when doing more or trying harder alone won't bridge the gap but that excellence is absolutely the only alternative. All of us have had moments when we succeed seemingly without effort. Yours in Christ,

Brother Willis Oluoch

Most people already know what they're doing wrong. When I get them to church I want to tell them that you can change. Joel Osteen, US Motivational Preacher.

Changes in Church Leadership


s a church of Christ Ambassador, we extend our profound gratitude trusting and believing you have had a blessed month full of sufficient Gods grace and love. The church of Christ Ambassador has experience changes in the recent past weeks in its organizational structure. This has seen Pastors Jimmy and Mercy Macharia join Christ Ambassador church replacing Pastor Peterson Okoth, 69, who has retired from the position he served for eight years. Pastor Okoth have served a glorious and successful life in the ministry of serving our almighty God. We wholeheartedly welcome the predecessors of Pastor Okoth, Pastor Jimmy and Mercy Macharia with humility in their endeavors of servant leadership. We ask God to grant them the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of God. This is to accentuate, one sure sign of spiritual maturity of a Christian is the ability to discern and walk in Gods perfect will as congregation of parishioners believing and worships God.

Health Column
uite often, we just work and intentionally or intentionally do not know when to give our bodies a rest. Equally important, it is perfect to be hardworking and very diligent at work but in all probabilities, it is important to recognize the fact that as human beings our bodies have limits of exhaustion it can bare. However, it is important that you take cautiously good care of your body, not only in the things you eat, but also in making sure your body is well rested. In the scripture, we are summoned that God blessed and sanctified the seventh day: because that in it He had rested from all His work (Genesis 2:3). The Lord rested because He was exhausted. This is a clear indication that every individual need to rest their bodies to recover from exhaustion. Consequently, failure to do so we risk our bodies of wearing out unknowingly. Giving your body a spree time of rest is a way of maintaining good health which should be taken with great considerations. So as a child of God fellowshipping in the church of Christ Ambassadors, find some amble to rest after a hard labor or hectic errands. This is essential for your wellbeing!

And I Praise YOU because of the wonderful way YOU created me. Everything YOU do is marvelous! Of this I have no doubt Psalm 139:14 Your way is perfect, Lord, and your Words are correct. YOU are a shield for those who run to YOU for help! Psalm 18:30

The Lord has promised that He will not leave us

POEM by Willis Oluoch


Kenya
God bless Kenya, Our humble home, A place filled with so much culture and diversity, How unique Kenya is. I love Kenya, Our humble home , Filled with so much promise for prosperity, How unique Kenya is. Who can compare to Kenya, Soil so bountiful, And so we flourish, God bless our homeland, Kenya. When you eat and drink, feast and dine, Please remember the hungry, those who count their days by the rumble of their stomach. When you sow and reap, Please remember the birds of the air, for they should return to their nests, satisfied in the evening. When darkness falls, And the sky becomes starry, leaving your eyes heavy with sleep, Please, remember to PRAY. February 2012 Issue

The Living Faith


The lifeline
We, too, must have times set apart for meditation and prayer and for receiving spiritual refreshing. We do not value the power and efficacy of prayers as we should. Prayers and faith will do what no power on earth can accomplish. We are seldom, in all respects, placed in the same position twice. We continually have new continual light that comes from God. Christ is ever sending message to those who listen for His voice. On the night of here is eloquence far more powerful than the elo quence of words in the quite, consistent life of a pure, true Christian. What a man is has more influence than what he says. The officers who were sent to Jesus came back with the report that never man spoke lived as He lived. Had His life been other than it was, He could not have spo ken as He did. His words bore with them a convincing power, because they came from heart pure and holy, full of love and sympathy, benevolence and truth. It is our own character and experience that determine our influence upon oth ers. In order to convince other of the power of Christs grace, we must know its power in our heart and lives. The gos pel we present for the saving of soul must be the gospel by which our own souls are saved. Only through a living faith I Christ as a personal Saviour is it possible to make our influence felt in a skeptical world. If we would draw sin February 2012 Issue the agony in Geth semane, The sleeping disci ples heard not the voice of Jesus. They had a dim sense of the angels presence, but lost the power and glory of the scene. Because of their drowsiness and stupor they failed to re ceive the evidence that would have strengthened their souls for the terrible scene before them. Thus today the very men who most need divine instructions often fail of receiving it, because they do not place themselves in communication with heaven. Jesus, the great Burden Bearer, is saying, Come unto Me, and I will give you rest. Shall we turn from Him to uncertain human beings, who are as dependent upon God as we ourselves are? You may feel the deficiency of your charac ter and the smallness of your ability in com parison with the greatness of the work. But if you had the greatest intellect ever given to man, it would not be sufficient for your work. Without Me ye can do nothing, says our Lord and Savior. John 15:5. The result of all we do rests in the hands of God. However, whatever may betide, lay hold upon Him with steady, perse vering confidence. In your business, in companionship for leisure hours, and in alliance for life, let all the associations you form be entered upon with earnest, humble prayer. You will thus show that you are fainthearted. When you are desponding, close the lips firmly to them; do not shadow the path of others; but tell eve rything to Jesus. Reach up your hands for help. In your weakness lay hold of infinite strength. Ask for humanity, wisdom, cour age, increase of faith, that you may see light in Gods light and rejoice in His love. By Pastor Jimmy & Mercy Macharia

Ask for humanity, wisdom, courage, increase of faith, that you may see light in

Gods light and rejoice in His love.

Persevering confidence
When in trouble, many think they must appeal to some earthly friend, telling him their perplexities, and begging for help. Under trying circumstances unbelief fills their heart, and the way seems dark. And all the time there stands beside them the mighty counselor of the ages, inviting them to place their confidence in Him.
