Kenyan mission mobilisation advances
RECENTLY 30 PASTORS and leaders from a diocese of the Christian Churches International denomination took the Kairos course. At the conclusion, Bishop Kariuki, the Bishop of the diocese, declared that “up till now, though we have been doing something, I now realise we have yet to start”. He said it’s now essential for all CCI pastors to attend Kairos and is now organising for that, not only for his diocese but for all other CCI dioceses in Kenya!
The Distant Boat (distantboat.com) is a locally produced feature length film that aims to stir the heart of the African church for mission. Released last year, we are on the steering committee to see that the film receives as wide a viewing as possible. Where we have shown it, pastors and leaders have declared that they are seeing missions in a new light – Glory be to God!
Chris and Nadine were missionaries in the Solomon Islands. Chris was the Australian NSW Coordinator for the Kairos course (2003-2009) and in Kenya was the East Africa Kairos Course coordinator. Nadine’s background in Early Childhood Education and TEFL meant that she has had a variety of opportunities with training of teachers as well as teaching English and Bible storying to some Somali groups.
They have four adult children; who are living in Australia.
