In Kenya, there is a huge need for more ministries that reach out to and disciple young people. Many young people grow up in Christian homes and identify as Christians, yet are unable to articulate the gospel clearly.
GracePoint church was planted in 2017 in Kikuyu, a town on the outskirts of Nairobi. Each week, the Bible is taught at Sunday services and mid-week groups. Over the past two years GracePoint Church has grown both in number and in influence, but there is much ministry work to do. Until now, there has been no dedicated youth worker at the church, though many young people live in the town.
After finishing the Cornhill Training Course in London, Ken Irungu returned to Kenya to work as the youth worker at GracePoint Church. Ken is mentoring, discipling and teaching the Bible to children and teenagers in Kikuyu, as well as many students studying at a local university. He also organises evangelistic events and camps for young people and is teaches apprentices at iServe Africa.
Greetings from Kenya! As I write this, it is just a few hours after the first consignment of coronavirus vaccines arrived in Kenya. Everyone here is very excited about it. Many people are looking forward to getting the vaccination.
As I watched the news coverage of the arrival of the vaccines, I couldn’t help but think and long for the new creation as we read in Revelation 21:4, ‘God will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.’ Yes, the former things will have passed away including COVID-19! We who are in Christ won’t need vaccinations any longer. Then we will be with the Lord forever!
