Am amazed by the opportunity have had to visit your web. Am in love with it
as it has been great to use it as a resourceful material in my teaching as
a pastor. God Bless.
Am a pastor of a small but ready to grow ministry, Heaven’s Ladder
Ministries. In our ministry we are proud to be the image of our true God.
We care for the homeless, care for the orphans, elderly, widows and
widowers and be bridge to the poor.

We’re driven by *Paul* telling us to equip others, by *Mark* (and Luke)
telling us to address their emotional, spiritual, intellectual, and
physical needs, and then by *Luke* who tells us we can do this by showing
love to others. Finally, *Matthew* in his gospel, chapter 10, verses 30-46
relates to us that the “least of these” who are hungry, thirsty, estranged,
naked, sick, or imprisoned also includes those in the Body of Christ, thus
taking us full circle to Paul’s instruction of doing all we can to build up
the Body.

*”This is a true saying, and everyone should believe it: Christ Jesus came
into the world to save sinners – and I was the worst of them all. But that
is why God had mercy on me, so that Christ Jesus could use me as a prime
example of his great patience with even the worst sinners. Then others will
realize that they, too, can believe in him and receive eternal life. Glory
and honor to God forever and ever. He is the eternal King, the unseen one
who never dies; he alone is God. Amen.” 1 Timothy 1:15-17*
“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works,
which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Ephesians 2:10).

Humbly we are requesting for affiliation status and extend an invitation to
visit us in Kenya to share the God’s word with the people of Kenya.

In Christ Love,
Pastor Jacob Ongechi Okioma

Pastor Okioma…thank you for your kind message. We are but a small ministry. What we have on our website is for your use. Feel free to print out anything you believe will be of value for you and for your congregation. We pray our Lord blesses you and your ministry with many coming to know Him and with the making of disciples who are strong and well learned in Him.
