Gerald and Louise are passionate about young people knowing Jesus and living lives committed to him.
Gerald and Louise both work with iServe Africa. Gerald leads a discipleship programme for school-leavers called TransformD. The Kenyan education system has a natural gap from January to August so it is a strategic time to offer a discipleship programme.
The main focus of TransformD is to deepen young people's faith and knowledge of the Bible. Alongside this, they teach life-skills, farming, teamwork and the theology of work. One month of the programme involves a mission trip within Kenya that serves as valuable cross-cultural mission training. The young people leave TransformD better prepared for their next stage of education or employment, stronger in their Christian faith and with some good Christian friendships formed during their time there.
Gerald and Louise have three boys: Jeremiah, Daniel and James.

We welcomed baby James into our family on 3 September weighing 8lb 10. He has been doing well and growing fast. The twins are smitten with their baby brother and give him a lot of love and attention.
Louise has been recovering fairly well from the caesarean section – which isn’t easy with toddler twins who need a lot of practical help and who love climbing! But she is well on the way to being back to full health. We are very grateful for the medical care and it has been much easier this time, both practically and culturally because of having a much better idea of what to expect.
James appears to have the same allergies as the twins did. However, the twins have now grown out of several of them – they can take small quantities of dairy, soy and the proteins that caused problems when they started weaning. They still can’t take egg and we’ve been advised to wait for allergy testing for different types of nuts. We are also still waiting to try them with ‘sukuma wiki’ (the local staple vegetable) and dates, which they used to react to through breastmilk.
