Gerald is Kenyan and Louise is from Northern Ireland. Both are passionate about young people knowing Jesus and living lives committed to him.
Gerald and Louise began their first term with Crosslinks in January 2016. 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, 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.

It is hard for us to believe that TransformD finished for this year on 9 June! We have had a wonderful time together.
The whole team in Samburu
Our trip to Samburu County during April seems to have been a highlight for all participants. Two of our 14 members come from Samburu and have grown up going to the children’s and youth camps which we went to run - so many people commented on how much they had both changed and grown. Samburu culture is a culture fairly oppressive to women with polygamy, early marriage and FGM all still incredibly common. Our female participant was frequently at the front translating and keeping order and people were amazed at the confidence she had gained with us in just a few short months. During giving her testimony Vivian told everyone she had always been sitting at the back and wasn’t overly interested in the teaching, but now she believes the message fully and wants to always be sitting in the front row. Do pray that her enthusiasm will continue!
