Via Apostolica has had a relationship with two Kenyan based ministries for the past 15 years.
The first group is based in Kitale and is lead by Mwangi and Pauline. Mwangi and Pauline give leadership to a ministry which focuses on young people. They run a home for teenage moms and their kids - called Esther home; two family-based orphan homes, and host a variety of outreach events for youth. In support of these ministries they have also started a number of business ventures which support these ministries - a bakery and 3 greenhouses - are a couple of examples.
The second group is a church planting ministry lead by Wilson and Alice based in the Turkana region of Kenya. Over the past 15 years, Wilson and his leaders have planted 25+ churches in this remote, desert region, including several in South Sudan. The average combined Sunday attendance in these churches is now +2200/week. Many of these churches are in small nomadic villages and are made up of people who continue to live a very traditional lifestyle - herding goats and camels. The last time we sent a team to Kenya was in April, 2018. Brett, Wanda and Lawrence from Via Comox Valley went to assess the health of the ministry in Kenya, invest in Via’s relationship with the leaders there, and explore the needs and options for ongoing ministry in the future, including the potential to bring a more ministry-focused team in the coming year or so. Our desire is to go every 2-3 years.
We value your partnership in praying for God to continue to move powerfully in Kenya. Please pray for God's provision and protection over the leaders of these various ministries. If you would like to financially support our leaders in Kenya please donate through our giving options. Make sure you note that it is to contribute to our regular giving to Kenya.
