First, we would like to wish you a Blessed Christmas as you celebrate the birth of our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Thank you for your ongoing support of our ministry, for without you we would not be able to fulfill what our Lord has called us to do. I am sure God will bless you for your faithfulness to our ministry and His purpose of seeing the Gospel go out across Kenya, East Africa.
It has been an exciting year with a lot happening, with national pastors planting new churches in Mombasa (South Coast), Kilifi (North Coast), Nairobi (capital), and Bungoma (Northwest). We continue to work with a newer church in Kilgoris while also assisting other churches as they endeavor to see their ministries grow. We had three Pastors’ Schools with 105 pastors in attendance from all across the country. Over the last three years, we have seen the attendance increase from 40 to 70 and this year to 105. We were able to teach these men concerning Soul Winning, Discipleship, The Role of Women in the Church, Godly Music, The King James Bible, Leading Muslims to Christ, and False Doctrine, as well as answer many of their questions.
One of the highlights of the year was seeing Pastor Fred Kambuni in Nairobi overcome all sorts of hurdles to become a pastor, start Greater Vision Baptist Church, and see his church attendance grow to 80 adults plus children. This was accomplished in a small school classroom, where half of his congregation flows out the door into the courtyard. We are halfway to raising enough money to purchase a tent, which will allow 200 people to comfortably get out of the sun and rain to hear the Word of God preached. It is particularly a blessing to me, as I have known Pastor Kambuni since he was a boy under the discipleship of Pastor Jeremiah Nyagaka, a pastor I have worked with for more than 20 years.
