Welcome

Team Seasoned Heart, based in Schwenksville, Pennsylvania, provides financial support as well as training teams to carry out missions in cooperation with Mission Team For Christ, a Christian ministry, and Hopewell Christian Fellowship, our church plant in Kilgoris, Kenya. Paster Dan Ombija is a Kenyan who is leader to both those ministries.

Hannah Hunter, president of Team Seasoned Heart is now based in Kilgoris, Kenya full-time.  She has established her home there. We also have started a ministry school to take back the cultural mountains – religion, family, business, government, arts and entertainment, media, health and science, and education.  Most of our students are college graduates.  We have successfully launched four businesses.

We are privileged to carry HIS heart to East Africa from a base in Kilgoris, Kenya. We have also been branching out into southern Africa. We invite you to, above all else, pray in agreement with the Holy Spirit for HIS purposes for this region and the people.  While we see God as our Source, there is the principle of the Sower and the one sent to the Harvest field and the blessing to both.  We invite you to come alongside of us and sow financially into the ongoing Harvest and reformation.

Human Perfected

Human Perfected and the Ultimate Human Example

 

By: Zachary Hunter

 

            Lately on my mind has been what we as Christians are meant to be versus what we can actually achieve.  For me I felt like what we are meant to be was unattainable, after all the examples we are taught in church such as the prophets and apostles seemed to simply be more than human.  This is not because of a failing in the telling of their stories by the Bible but rather a failing in how we teach them. 

 

We so emphasize their successes and the miracles and prophecies they did and their faithfulness to God yet mention their flaws and failings little to never.  As someone who is very aware of their failings, I find this to be detrimental to a growing Christian.  After all, with people like Paul on the pedestal we’ve put them on what hope do I have?  I’m saved but I didn’t suddenly do a 180 turn because of an encounter with Christ and suddenly became perfect in everything I did. 

 

This brings me to Human Perfected, or to give his full name, Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Son of the Most High God.  We all know how Jesus came to the Earth and became fully human.  He understands us in a way that only experience can help you understand someone.  Yet as a human he never sinned, never gave into temptation though he felt it, and as far as I know he never even made a mistake.

 

Jesus is our savior, our Lord, our advocate, our redeemer, and our goal.  He is Human Perfect, what humans were meant to be in how he walked with God, how he loved others, and how he taught.  His example is what we are to aspire to be and to work towards.  I don’t know about you, but I find that to be very intimidating.  As wonderful as Jesus was and as great an example of what we should be as he was, I often feel like that is an impossible standard to meet.  That makes me feel like it is impossible to be a good Christian, a good person, a good servant of Christ, and I will never be able to be useful. 

 

While wrestling with this state of mind and the feeling of hopelessness because of it I was led to go back and reread the story of King David.  Full disclosure I HATED David the first time I read his full story.  The man seemed like such a scumbag to me with all the people he randomly killed or cursed.  Yeah, he loved God but was such a mess when it came to handling other people.  This time though I saw things from a different perspective. 

 

David was NOT a perfect person, by any stretch of the imagination.  He murdered, committed adultery, practiced polygamy instead of marriage as God intended, got angry and cursed people; he did some truly wicked and horrible things.  Yet he did love God; he loved to worship God, he kept many of God’s principles that we often don’t even think of as existing, such as how to act towards leaders when he wouldn’t harm Saul, and when God called him out on his sins, he not only repented for them he would accept the punishment the Lord sent to him. 

 

After reading through all of that I came to the conclusion that David is the Ultimate Human Example.  He is not perfect, in fact he is very flawed, yet he was held up by God as one of His most beloved servants.  In fact, every king after David would be compared to David’s example by God Himself.  Jesus himself even came from the line of David; he is a direct descendant of David via Mary.  What honors he received from God!

 

Suddenly I have new hope.  David was not some superhuman who never messed up; he was but a man.  A man who sinned yet was beloved of God.  Flawed but with the right heart; teachable, repentant, full of praise.  We are in the same boat when it comes to flaws for even the greatest among us has flaws and failures.  Believe it or not the best among us even…sin sometimes! (Gasp, Shock, Horror, Lightning Crackle) Yet God is good and just to forgive our sins if we confess and repent.  We may also have to pay restitution and receive some punishment for our sins but that is all according to God’s principles and righteousness.  David is the Ultimate Human Example; flawed but favored.  We are not so different from him which means that we too can attain what he did.  He even showed us how to do so.  I hope this helps you as much as it helped me.

 

Something Different

Something Different…

By: Zachary Hunter

 

            Good morning all.  For those of you wondering where God’s Movement has been for the past three weeks I apologize for the absence.  I have been having some computer issues which are now sorted out and we have been busy trying to restore the temple (our house to be used in such a manner) as well as prepare for the arrival of our Kenyan family member, Pastor Dan.  I am unsure when I will resume the movement blog, but I certainly intend to do so.  Rest assured that with or without the blog God has been moving and breakthrough is coming.

 

            What has been on my mind lately is the times we are in.  I feel involved in ways I never have been before while simultaneously feeling like I am not doing enough.  My mother believes that we must push back like never before and that if we are masked again, we will never rise again either.  I agree and this is where I believe I falter.  When it comes to people, I am a very scared individual.  While I won’t go into details my experiences have shaped me to try and avoid conflict with people and to try to please as many as possible. 

 

            In this time that will not be enough, and I have been trying to think of how I can push back and help in this fight beyond simply refusing to wear a mask and refuse to take the vaccine.  I can speak well enough if the Spirit moves me to and have even been told I am eloquent when I do speak.  Perhaps in time He will call me to do such a thing but for now I cannot see myself being very effective at it. 

 

            As I thought about it, I came upon the idea of writing and sharing that writing with others.  Writing is something I love to do, and God has given me the gift for.  As such I wish to write as often as I feel led to encourage us to stand strong and push back.  These are crucial times, so I do encourage you to stand strong, be bold and courageous and push back.  Do not get dragged down in pointless battles but stand wherever you can. 

 

            Do not wear a mask when you go out and if a business tries to force you to wear one or insists you need the vaccine then you politely refuse and take your business elsewhere.  If you feel so inclined write or call your senators and representatives and tell them what you believe and what you require of them.  Be firm but respectful; they are in positions of authority and God does look at how we treat people in authority. 

 

            Those of you going to school board meetings and pushing back against mask mandates, good for you!  Keep it up!  If any of you can support these mothers and fathers trying to protect their children from tyranny you should do so.  Even if it only emotional support the value it brings to their lives cannot be underestimated.  Should your local town hall be discussing mask or vaccine mandates and you can attend, attend.  Even if you don’t speak you can let your voice and stance be known to your local leadership. 

 

            I will leave you today with some quotes from Patrick Henry and his famous speech that ended in ‘Give me liberty or give me death’ during the American Revolution.  He wonderfully demonstrates being bold, what must be done, and what the price will be if we are not bold in this time.  A disclaimer because this is the internet, this is not a call to violence but to peacefully and legally push back, no matter what they may call us.

Patrick Henry: Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations; and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave… There is no retreat but in submission and slavery!... Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God!
