People group adoption
RECENTLY MORE THAN 50 members of a Pentecostal church in Nairobi (including the leadership team) went through the Kairos course and decided to adopt the Somali people! This was ratified during the Kairos graduation. One of the speakers was a lady from India who has come to Kenya as a missionary to the Somalis! Another congregation led by a Pastor Njuguna, a Kairos Head Facilitator, has adopted the Orma, another Muslim group in Kenya!
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.
