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:
What a joy to partner in the gospel with you. Whenever we think of you, we praise God for your generosity and partnership, which is a huge encouragement to us as we labour here in the Diocese of Marsabit.
Marsabit County has witnessed bloody tribal clashes over the past few months. This has left many dead, others angry and crying for justice and many others homeless and desperate. Because of this, there is a cloud of fear and tension across the diocese. We’d love your prayers for peace. Pray that all of us will treasure and value human life no matter how different the ‘other’ might be from us.
