Psalm 16:8, “I have set the LORD continually before me; because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.”

Dear Friends of Possibilities Africa,
None of us have experienced in our lifetime what we are going through today. This pandemic has shaken many things in which we put our trust. During these times, we must ask, “How do we keep moving forward with confidence in the midst of a changing world?” “How do we accomplish the work God has put before us when the systems and nations we thought were stable are in chaos?” We do exactly what David did, “We continually set the LORD before us.” He is unshakable! He is not in retreat!

Martin Simiyu & Matt Shada

As I reflect on the history of Possibilities Africa, I am reminded of God’s goodness, faithfulness, and power. What started in one small village in rural Kenya is now impacting the countries of Kenya, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Tanzania and Malawi. Tens of thousands of lives are being transformed. Have there been obstacles? Too many to count! Has there been suffering? The team in Africa has endured suffering beyond what many of us will ever know. Yet, through it all, while continually setting the LORD before them, Martin and His team keep moving forward by faith believing that God wants to impact a continent, not just a few countries. Martin has laid out a courageous vision moving forward, believing that “with God all things are possible.” In the midst of a changing world, it’s imperative that we keep moving forward by faith, trusting Jesus to transform lives. Now is not the time to retreat. We must press on boldly and with urgency. Thanks for your partnership in the ministry. Together, we are impacting countries and a continent for all eternity.

Rejoicing in Him,

Matt Shada
Chairman of the Board Possibilities Africa
