Kenya Update – May 2015 – Moses Rianto – Mission Outreach Director
In the month of April, we had a seminar at Zion Baptist Church. The theme was from Isaiah 43:18, 19 A new beginning. Many were blessed through teaching. Three converted and gave their lives to Christ and joined the church.

CHANNELS OF HOPE TRAINING
Rev Moses Rianto participated in a training dubbed “Channels of Hope” by world vision, targeting church leaders and pastors. It’s based on gender violence and bringing peace. They say Faith based Organizations play a vital role in development, as they are a source of compassion, generosity and are trusted influencers. Church leaders can be powerful change agents and advocates for the Girl child. This training was trying to involve church leaders in eradicating harmful traditional practices against children: FGM, early marriages, child labour and help strengthen the local child protection system.
