A New School in Kenya and How it Came to Be

Below is a short clip of Pastor John Omoke speaking about a theological college that he was able to start in Kenya.  John Omoke was a student at KTC during our first year here.  He and 2 other Kenyans would travel from Kenya to Uganda for weeks at a time to study and train.  Their families really suffered and struggled through the years.  But for the sake of the gospel they pressed on.  When they graduated, they felt like they were at a cross roads.  They didn't want to see their fellow men to suffer the way they had, but they also wanted their men to get a good education.  So they decided to take all of their courses and course work from KTC and open a training facility in Kenya.  What an amazing blessing to see the fruit of the labor at KTC being exported to other communities where it can continue to grow and produce more fruit.

Here are some more pictures that Pastor Omoke gave to us.

This is the group of students that are studying in Kenya.

The students taking an exam.  The gentleman on the far right is using a Youth Bible.  Maybe that's surprising to some of my readers that a man training for ministry would use a youth bible for his exam.  These men are so thankful for all the Bibles they can get.  When Pastor Omoke and the other Kenyan students would visit us in our home while they were students, they were always amazed at the amount of Bibles our family owned because many of their elders didn't even own Bibles.  Bibles and other theological books are a precious commodity in these communities.

Pastor Omoke and his wife.  Maybe you remember when they were married on our compound in a triple wedding?

Please pray for this exciting. growing and fully indigenous ministry in Kenya!  Praise God for growing his church!
