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 called TransformD for young people after they have finished high school. The Kenyan education system has a natural gap from January to August so it is a strategic time to offer a discipleship programme. It means that the young people don't have to delay their studies and it makes good use of this free time. The programme runs for six months and is held at the iServe Africa premises.
The main focus is to deepen their faith and knowledge of the Bible while also making time for mentorship, life skills and cross-cultural mission training. It includes a month-long mission trip within Kenya. The programme also runs a 500m2 greenhouse to teach about farming, teamwork and the theology of work. 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.
You can find out more about TransformD and give in support of the programme here.
Gerald and Louise have twin boys called Jeremiah and Daniel.

‘After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice: “Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.”’ Revelation 7:9-10
We praise God that there will be people from every tribe and nation in heaven, praising him forever. We had 10 out of the 42 different tribes of Kenya represented in TransformD this year and we hope and trust we will see each of them in heaven!
