Dear Pastor Thomas,
We would like you to know that you have been used of the Lord in being a channel of innumerable blessings for the people of God in this Kenya. Primarily, this has been through the ministry of Keith Underhill, whom you commissioned forty years ago and have supported through thick and thin. Keith will himself say that were it not for your unqualified support, a few years back, he would not have been able to continue here in the midst of those fiery darts of the evil one. Moreover, you have also faithfully been visiting Kenya almost annually and teaching faithfully at our small seminary.
May the Lord, the God of hope, who called, graced and equipped you, be your hope, your joy, your all. That you may be assured of His obvious work in your life, upholding you for these many years and giving a crown and a glory in the people to whom you have ministered these years. Besides, He has made a wonderful promise of a crown for His faithful servants, He alone knows what He has in store for you.
May your sunset years with you wife Iola, be of more blessings to you and your hearers. We pray that the Lord will soon provide another man for APBC.
Grace to you & yours.
