Short-Term Outreach & Relief Mission (STORM)
Since 1997, SHARE has ministered to the Turkana people of Kenya through the annual Short-Term Outreach & Relief Mission (STORM). The STORM team consists of African and non-African believers. The initial teams (1997 – 2006) planted 11 churches in remote villages.
After completion of their 3-year (2003-2006) training at the SI Missions Institute (SIMI) in Lodwar 80 indigenous missionaries and pastors were commissioned beyond the 11 churches beginning 2007. Since then, some of the STORM participants have been allocated Bible teaching ministries for missionaries and pastors at the SHARE facilities (now SEND Center) in Lodwar while others minister to all age and gender groups and in the 11 villages, depending on gifting of each participant.
Ministries in the villages include teaching practical application of the Bible, screening The Jesus Film, and provision of medical and humanitarian relief. By summer of 2015, the STORM teams had ministered to 81,629 people in Turkanaland. The 2016 team is there now, STORM!
