We have been serving in Kenya full time since 2019. We began our service with an organization that focused on medical care. We served in the capacities of construction, administration, and chaplaincy. We dove into the culture, community, and people. We learned a lot! At this point in our journey, we believe God is calling us into something deeper. We are 100% led by the Holy Spirit into opportunities, programs, situations, and people.
Our focus during this season is very people and community based. We know we can do nothing without God and therefore we are learning to rely on Him in bigger ways than we ever have before. We also know that we must point people to God in every act of service we do, so they rely on Jesus and not us. Our greatest desire is to raise up IKenyahn leaders who are God fearing, God trusting and God honoring. Leaders who are missionaries to their own communities and neighbors.
Some areas that God is leading us into are, agriculture, growing food that provides both jobs and famine relief. Widows empowerment through skills training that provides income and self-sufficiency. Football, (soccer), ministry which is our greatest joy. Raising up young men and women through the discipline of sports with a Christian foundation. These are the future leaders of Kenya and it is a privilege to disciple them. We regularly serve at a children’s home, host bible studies, mentor those who seek us out and provide leadership training and discipleship. There is no lack of need!
We feel strongly that God used our first three years to gain the trust of our community and to develop deep relationships which is causing doors to open and new opportunities to present daily.
Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field” Matthew 9:35-37
