In spring of 1978, Sammy attended a Missions Convention at the headquarters of Worldwide Evangelization Crusade’s (WEC) in Bulstrode (near London) where “Brother Andrew” (Andrew van der Bijl) was the speaker. It was at that convention that Sammy surrendered his life to the call of Missions, with no idea where that would lead.
In the summer of 1978 Sammy traveled to Birmingham, England, to visit a friend. As he watched a TV documentary by BBC on the Turkana people of Kenya, he sensed the nudge from the Lord calling him to reach the Turkana people with the Gospel.
On January 18, 1989, while studying Missions at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (TEDS) in Illinois, the words “share the gospel… (and) our lives” by Apostle Paul in 1 Thessalonians 2:8 made a strong impression on Sammy. It was at that moment that Share International was born.
We invite you to join us so together we can continue to accomplish the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19,20) and witness the entire 1M Turkana population come to know the Lord through the Gospel, with believers becoming Christ’s disciples who intentionally make disciples of others.
The Turkana people live in the northwestern region of Kenya. The Turkana have maintained their undiluted traditional way of life. They are distinguished as being great survivors, living in harsh and inhospitable terrain.
Share International shares the love of Christ to the people of Turkana, Kenya through many different intentional ministries, and train and equip others to do the same.
Our VISION is to see the Gospel of Jesus Christ proclaimed among the Turkana people of Kenya and His disciples growing deeper in their faith and making disciples of others.
