Amos Kennedy continues his talk with Eddie and Rachel Andersen, who work in Dukana, northern Kenya. They talk about how the work originally started among the Gabbra.
AIM Ministry: Outreach & Evangelism
It’s no surprise that with our desire to reach the unreached with the gospel, much of our work involves outreach & evangelism. Methods vary from people group to ministry area, but sharing the good news of Jesus is at the heart of all we do. The way we reach out to women on an Indian Ocean island might be different to the way we seek to evangelise young Samburu men in rural Kenya but our vision remains the same; to see people turning to Jesus for their salvation.
All in Africa need to know the freedom there is in Jesus, including those caught up in witchcraft, ancestor worship & animism, as well as those who are adhering to other major world religions. We long to let all Africa’s people know that they can have life, in all its fullness, for comfort rather than living in fear of breaking taboos and working to earn favour in the eyes of their gods. We long to tell them of the joy there is to be found in Christ, and the redemption that he offers.
To do this, people who are passionate and eager to share Jesus, need to go to those who have never heard. This may mean going to some of the world’s hardest to reach places, physically and spiritually but can also mean sharing hope where there is none. Could you be part of this work?
Amos talks to Jack and Phil about the time that each of them spent serving short term in Africa. All three served in Dukana, northern Kenya among the Gabbra people. They talk about their experience and the impact it had on each of their lives.
Eddie and Rachel Andersen work in northern Kenya. They share a little about their story and how they came to be working among the Gabbra.
The Apostle John had an amazing vision of the risen Christ in all his glory. But not many of us have seen a vision of God as John did. Instead, we can be tempted to project our understanding of the world onto how we view God. Caroline Bell talks about how moving to Moroto, Uganda, has shaped how she sees God and his character.
Jack went to serve among the Gabbra in northern Kenya. He says… “I have come away with a new heart for mission, and a burden for unreached people that need Jesus and do not yet know him. I pray with renewed energy and eagerness for missionaries in the field and the calling of new workers.”
