Nandi Hills Update

While I was teaching in Bungoma today (I’ll give you a good update on that class later) the BTCP class in Nandi Hills put together a budget for our upcoming teacher training. Basically, I will be training each of my students how to do my job so that they can build up a self sustainable discipleship movement that doesn’t rely on… (more…)

Evangelism

My students are ready to start discipleing people in their communities, so we have started evangelism in the area and are leading people to Christ, getting their phone numbers, and signing them up for Bible classes.

They are very open about their problems and the sin… (more…)

1st Day in the Hills

Pictured to the left is a Christian man and his family whom we visited on our first hike. I told him I wanted a picture with him so I could share his request for prayer with my church back home. He told us to pray that his people would be delivered from their Alcoholism. He informed us that most of the poverty… (more…)
