Marsabit Diocese is in northern Kenya and is the size of the whole of England. 60% of the population are Muslim and 35% follow traditional African religions - just 5% are Christian. Gospel workers are few, with only 18 trained clergy.
The diocese's youth and children’s worker is responsible for 53 churches spread across a huge region. It is an important role as radicalisation of young people is increasingly becoming an issue. Christian teenagers suffer much persecution and pressure to conform.
Jomo Nderitu has been the youth and children’s worker since January 2019. He previously worked in Marsabit as a ministry apprentice from 2014-2015. This apprenticeship year helped sharpen Jomo's desire to live for Christ and proclaim him to the unchurched. Jomo then studied for a Bachelor of Theology at George Whitefield College in South Africa from 2016-2018.
Jomo’s ministry includes:
Pay careful attention to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to care for the church of God, which he obtained with his own blood. (Acts 20:28)
How I pray that you and I would heed this call to be sober, alert and to watch over ourselves and the flock entrusted to us.
There is no greater blessing than brothers dwelling together in unity, calling God our Father and being certain of the Lord’s sure promises in Christ Jesus. And it is on to this note that Ann and I continue trusting the Lord for the salvation of our siblings (Sammy, Gideon and Rebecca). Kindly remember these three in your prayers.
