At the age of 12, the Lord called me to full-time ministry. At 15, after my father and I nearly lost our lives from a tragic accident, God put a fire in my bones to reach unreached, unengaged people for Jesus Christ. Ever since then, that fire has only grown stronger. Because of God’s calling on my life, there is only one thing I have a burning passion to do: Reach the unreached and equip others to do the same. I want to start doing that now.
Objective in Kenya:
Reaching Souls Intl. is an outstanding ministry used by God to strategically reach millions of people in Africa on an annual basis! This is the organization that God has given me the privilege to work alongside in Kenya! In 2015 alone, the Lord allowed Reaching Souls Intl. to see 7,969,139 salvation decisions, plant 4,908 new churches, and baptize 1,519,324 precious new believers! The goal for 2016 is to add 281 new African National Missionaries for a total of 2,000 men in the field. When RSI has 2,000 National Missionaries in the field, they project based on past and current numbers that it will result in 11 million salvation decisions each year!
In Kenya we have the opportunity to serve, support, and teach some of these National Missionaries. We also have the opportunity to evangelize publically and personally alongside these National Missionaries all throughout Kenya.
Because we will be training, equipping, and working alongside local pastors, this trip will have long-term impact for the Kingdom of God. This is not a trip where the strategy is a short lived boost, this is a country changing endeavor.
“How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent?”
James 2:5 says, “Listen, my beloved brothers, has not God chosen those who are poor in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom?” I have a conviction and a determination to do anything necessary to reach those who do not know Christ. This is my life’s mission and calling.
You have the opportunity to take part in reaching the unreached and equipping others to do the same! In Kenya, people are ready to hear the gospel. What they need is laborers to go into the harvest. God is sending African National Missionaries to reach their own people. This summer, God is sending a team of American Missionaries, for which I am one, to support those who are diligently serving God in Africa, and be a voice of truth spread all among Kenya for those who do not know Christ.
$1000 has been provided for my trip by generous donors so far. The Lord has provided the resources for me to invest $1000 out of pocket. That leaves $2,500 remaining to be fully funded for this trip to Kenya. Will you give to support the long-term investment of souls being saved in Kenya and throughout Africa?
There are four easy methods to invest in this endeavor:
Although I am trusting in the Lord as Provider, I am praying that He works through you to help make it all happen. I’m praying for Great Commission Game Changers. May God be glorified through His Church!
