Jambo! Is the name given to the partnership that exists between our church and the Anointed Rivers Church and school community in Western Kenya. It is our overseas focused mission opportunity. So far, this partnership has resulted in:
- Conduct of training to Church leaders and pastors
- Conference of local church members and children
- Provision of written study material and resources
- Building of 2 classrooms
- Provision of chairs and educational material to the Anointed Rivers Academy
- Payment of school registration costs
- Ongoing consultation and advice
All of these have been provided through the gifts and offerings of our church. In 2019 it is planned to conduct a consultation process and conference called ‘Sustainable Futures’, which is expected to take place in May. The intention is that a plan can be produced that will lead to the community becoming independently sustainable within 5 years.
In addition to the conference Pastor Richard has been asked to provide teaching to the Christians in the Nursing College and has been invited to meet with a Baptist pastor in Kitale, who is Bishop to 7 churches in the region. He asked our pastor to speak to his congregations.
