|From L to R: Pastor Hesbon Kioko, Pastor Rasto, Mr & Mrs Mangwabi (owners who donated the land for the church and borehole)|
After 7 years of working with MBEWAU Church, God has allowed them to start their first "baby" church. The new church called "Makuhuru Fellowship" is located approximately 5 miles away and is in an unreached area.
It is exciting for me to watch these young churches get to the place that they are now mature enough to recognize the need for an "extension" of their own ministry. I am honored to work with Pastor Rasto as he now mentors Pastor Hesbon Kioko in his new role. Just one more GREAT reason for Lisa & I to be here in Kenya!!!
Mr & Mrs Mangwabi donated the half acre land for the church and borehole. In the next few months we will build a simple mud church and dig a community borehole. I know God will do great things on this "holy ground" HE has provided.
Pastor Hesbon graduated Crossroads Bible College in Vipingo earlier this year. I had the opportunity to teach him in a few classes over the past 3 years. He is 27 years old, single, from Kakamega and works at the Vipingo Sisal Plantation. I am excited to see what God has in store for him @ his new church, Makuhuru Fellowship!
