Pastor’s Training by Pastor Trent

This is tonight’s pastor training session. Pastor Trent gave a great lesson on Matt 28:19-20. He taught about the rythym of discipleship. Tomorrow, we leave very early for the remote village of Kaabanang. This is an unreached village…few if any have heard the Gospel there. Our team will go hut to hut in the morning, sharing about ourselves and Christ. Then we will have group sessions in the village center and show the Jesus film in the evening. We will also be spending the night there, in tents, so that we can begin early Saturday with our teaching and baptisms. PLEASE continue in prayer for us. This is a unique (and a little scary) experience for the team. We have some hesitant people but trust fully that God will give them/us strength. Good night.

STORM 2017 Update July 11 to July 13

July 11

Our team went out for the second day to Nariamao village. By day’s end, 26 had made professions of faith and were baptized by Pastor Bob and Sammy. Men, women and children came to know the Lord and the saints in Heaven rejoiced, along with us here. Our pastors continued their training. New concepts in rapid discipleship were shared. Not only do they want to reach their own tribe, they now have a vision of being missionaries to their neighboring tribes. They have a renewed passion for Matthew 28:19, “to go and make disciples of all nations.” It was a blessed day. We go to a new village tomorrow…Sopel. Keep praying as our work continues.

 

July 12

We journeyed an hour yesterday to the village of Sopel. Hundreds were there under trees waiting for our team to arrive. We were greeted by dancing and singing. Each team went to its assigned cluster of trees to minister to the people. Many professed their faith for the first time and will be baptized. We will return today, if that is possible, since it has rained all night! We are in the dry season and a severe drought. God has blessed this dry and thirsty land with abundant rain, an answer to prayer. The rivers will be flowing again in Turkanaland! Praise the Lord (but keep the mosquitoes away)!

 

July 13

We attempted to go back to Sopel today but the river was raging over the road we were on and we had to return to the Center. Just spent time in prayer together as a team. May this rain give the Turkana people the relief they have been praying for.

Bible Pathways Classes

The number Bible Pathways classes is growing as the Share missionaries take what they’ve learned about teaching from the Bible to the villages where they serve.  As the students in each of these classes matures in the ability to read and understand the Scripture, God’s kingdom in Turkanaland gains more bold evangelist to take the Word to the Turkana people.  All students are given their own Bibles .  Audible Bibles are given to those who have not yet learned to read and write.  Share is also expanding its Adult Literacy classes to enable more people to read the Bible.
