Inland Mission

Martin & Joy Koch

Sent from Freie Evangelische Gemeinde, Giessen, Germany

Martin & Joy work among the Samburu in northern Kenya, seeking to share the gospel with them. 

Kenya gained independence from Britain in 1963. Since then British tourism has been a key element of Kenya’s economy, however, unemployment, poverty and crime remain high. Whilst the majority religion is Christianity, Kenya’s ethnic diversity and vast countryside means there are still many unreached with the gospel.

The Kochs began serving with AIM in 1994, working with the local church in Kenya in training church leaders and assisting in church ministry. They led a Samburu TIMO team from 2013 to 2016, seeking to grow relationships that lead to opportunities to share the gospel and disciple believers.

Following the TIMO team, Martin and Joy are continuing to reach out to the Samburu of Lchakwai, Kenya. Building on relationships established by the TIMO team, they desire that a number of Samburu women, men, moran (warriors), and children will decide to follow Christ and that several churches will be formed.
