A gift that keeps on giving
Dandora Mwangenye, Kenya
PERIOD OF THE PROJECT
Rev. Margaret who wanted to change the situation of churches in Dandora Mwangenye was introduced to Meshack by Bishop Mike who had helped him to mobilize the team in Kayole Soweto, Nairobi. One day vision casting was organized for nine pastors and church leaders who came for the mobilization and the Samaritan Strategy project was planned.
Before they ended with the first training event, pastors were very happy with the training, they have begun looking at ministry in a different way. Many have begun giving testimonies that their way of ministering should change if they wanted to reach the people who were not churched. The following is just a snapshot of what happened after their second training event
A doctor was invited to facilitate a seminar about the effects of drug addiction to an individual and the society. Another group was involved in environmental clean-up. As a result, the pastors became more respected in the community and this work was good news to the community.
The number of participants increased, bearing to the fact that the training was already creating an impact in their churches.
In their last sessions, they spent more time sharing testimonies than lecturing and heard about the impact of the training on pastors’ lives as well as their ministries. The number of participants was 52 people.
At the conclusion of this project, we expect to multiply the experience in other areas.
Pray for the team of Harvest Kenya to continue manifesting the biblical wholistic mission in their lives.
Pray for Kenyan local churches to demonstrate God’s love not as a short time deed but as their lifestyle.
