I was originally scheduled to train several pastors in Nigeria during the 1st week of July. However, this event was postponed. While during the week of the Nigerian Training postponement, God decided to focus my attention on Kenya. How did He do this? First, a Kenyan pastor reached out requesting Bibles, then a disciple maker in Tanzania, that I hadn’t spoken to in years, reached out requesting a large group of pastors be trained in Kenya. As it turns out, the city they’re in is the same city the first pastor was from! Then the leader of a partner ministry in the US shared with me he had hundreds of pastors in Kenya who needed this training. When I asked him what would be a convenient city for training…well you guessed it, it was the same city where the others were requesting training, Kisii in Keyna! Isn’t this amazing? One training event gets postponed, and another surfaces where training is needed! But it doesn’t stop here…
All of this grabbed my attention and I decided to seek the Lord by saying, “Ok Lord, if you want me to go there and train these leaders I will, and I trust that you will pay for it.” This will consist of training 300 pastors on how Jesus trained His followers to disciple nations. We also have taken measures to fiscally “tighten the belt” with this training. For example, we may even be sleeping on a concrete floor. We are also informing all trainees they will be responsible for their own transportation. So the cost of the training will cover food, housing, the training, and my travel for just $25.00 per trainee. This number even includes distributing 300 bibles to new disciples who don’t have a bible.
So this leaves only one question, how many of these pastors will you sponsor so they can train their congregations to become disciples who multiply? We need your support in sponsoring these pastors so we can continue expanding our network of multiplying disciples throughout East Africa. You can do this by simply pressing on ‘Donate‘ above and sponsoring as many as you can.
