The North Rift Regional Conference for the Kenya Students Christian Fellowship 2017 took place from November 6-10. Selected high school students and teachers from all over the north rift region of Kenya gathered together for fellowship and teaching.
Joseph Alaku, Reinhard Nawiakwan, Gilchrst Billa, Janet Lolii, Cynthia Aremon, Epetet Esinyen and Millicent Losike represented Children of the Kingdom at the conference from Lodwar.
Despite some roadblocks (a bridge was out on the way which caused major travel delays), they finally made it and were welcomed to the conference where they were equipped to equip others for Christ. Our coordinator, John Lohoi, wrote that it was obvious that the lives of those who attended will never be the same as they were filled with encouragement and tools to serve the Lord back in their schools and churches and to be a light wherever they go.
This conference was covered by funds in our general fund, and we are so grateful for this opportunity that this provided for them.
Giving Thanks for 2017
Children of the Kingdom has served 497 children through the years with 135 students graduating from high school, colleges and universities. We currently have 262 children in our sponsorship program.
Our mission is to share the gospel and our very lives with children in need to equip them to be missional servants in the kingdom of God, and we are seeing that mission being lived out beautifully by our students as they are growing physically and spiritually and serving in their communities. Ten students traveled to Mombasa for the Kenya students Christian Fellowship conference in the spring of 2017, and seven students went to the KSCF regional meeting in Kitale in the fall of 2017. Twenty-five students will participate in the 17th Annual Student outreach to Lokipetot Arengan Village in December sharing the gospel, leading worship, and distributing food and supplies.
We continue to give thanks for your partnership in this work as we aim “to love and serve the Lord and to live our lives so that those to whom love is a stranger will find in us generous friends.”
