DAM WATER HARVESTING
A few years ago the Maasai community in many villages suffered shortage of water and had to travel long distances to get water for drinking and for their animals. When it rained, all the water would be lost because there were no dams to collect. In 2018, we partnered with a Korean NGO called “I Love Africa” to fence, dig dip to widen small dams, build a tank and pipe the water so people and animals can use when it is safe and clean. This has seen lives changed, as women in these villages no longer walk long distances to fetch water and their animals have access to clean water at shorter distance.

In the month of October, Rev. Moses Rianto together with other community pastors organized for a prayer of repentance and breaking of Alters. We thank God the community heeded the call to come for repentance and seeking God for all that’s happening in our community. We were overwhelmed for an attendance of 3,500 and when invitation for repentance was done. Over 300 people converted and gave their lives to Christ as their personal Saviour. Please let us all pray for these brethren, that God may direct them to attend a church near them, that they will be natured well in Scriptures.

PASTORS TRAINING – EREMIT IN MAGADI
As many churches are being planted and many local leaders are called by God to serve with local churches, there is huge need for trained pastors to be able to lead well and nurture Christians in scripture. It is due to this need that we are organizing pastors and church leaders to join Bible Training Centre for Pastors, which uses biblical, systematic, portable and comprehensive approach to providing foundational equivalent of a good Bible college to untrained pastors.
