The SEED – October 2019

 In The SEED

 

“If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them gets lost, what will he do? Won’t he leave the ninety-nine others in the wilderness and go to search for the one that is lost until he finds it?  And when he has found it, he will joyfully carry it home on his shoulders.  When he arrives, he will call together his friends and neighbors, saying, ‘Rejoice with me because I have found my lost sheep.’”
Luke 15:3-6


 

Chokchok Block Mini-STORM – Sep. 25th – 29th

Katula Village is approximately 44 miles east of the Lodwar base and has a population of about 300 people. The economic activities in the village are fishing, livestock, and basket weaving. The purpose of this trip was to do evangelism, Bible teachings, discipleship, baptisms, and plant a church.

 

There was resistance from the villagers when our team entered the village. They told us that they had already heard the Word of God. They declared, “We don’t need you to preach to us the Message of salvation, for we already know Him and have been baptized by oil and sprinkling of water on our faces.” But, after settling down, we started sharing and teaching from Romans 10:1-4 and John 14:6. Then we screened The Jesus Film and taught the “3 Circles” discipleship method. The villagers’ hearts melted when they heard the truths of God’s Word. They started attending our teaching sessions. They realized what they believed was not the truth. A total of 181 people gave their lives to Christ, and 21 were baptized. They attended our teachings from the first day to the end and even proposed the site for the church!

 

We had about 1,015 people attend the teachings. Two other villages nearby, also came to hear the Word of God. We were able to plant a church in Katula Village. A total of 145 believers attended the first church service.

Due to the high value placed on livestock, it is common for Turkana people to raid their neighboring communities – especially the Marakwet and Pokot of southern Kenya – in effort to enlarge their herds.
