Gerald and Louise are both passionate about young people knowing Jesus and living lives committed to him.
Gerald works with iServe Africa, leading a discipleship programme called TransformD, for young people after they have finished high school. This deepens their knowledge of the Bible and faith, and allows for mentorship, cross-cultural mission experience and practical Christian service before they move on to their next stage of education or employment.
Louise is working in a school specifically for vulnerable children in Kibera slum; she does some teaching and works with teachers to further develop their skills in this tough environment. She is also involved in the TransformD programme on a regular basis and is doing a part-time theology course to deepen her biblical knowledge.

We are grateful to have started our third TransformD programme. This year we have 27 young people mostly aged between 18 and 21. This is double what we have had before!
We are excited to have more people involved but having a larger group brings new challenges.
Bible study in Ephesians
Our programme involves teaching sessions, particularly on the Gospel of Mark during the first phase (five weeks) as well as small-group bible study in Ephesians, personal devotions in Genesis and group morning devotions in the minor prophets! So they are spending a lot of their time looking at the Bible. We also have a day every week dedicated to prayer and fasting. For life skills they are working on basic computer skills, farming and first aid. They are learning cooking and cleaning through their duties. The first phase is an interesting one because they are learning our ethos and standards, getting to know each other and getting to grips with the basics of the gospel to make sure we are all on the same page. Starting off well should make the rest of the programme easier as we have been setting the foundations that the rest of the programme will be built upon.
