Share continues to work toward reducing illiteracy in Turkanaland through the Adult Literacy (AL) ministry. AL’s ultimate purpose is to enable the Turkana people in the churches we plant to read the Bible for themselves. The joy of witnessing Turkana adults in remote villages read and write is almost unspeakable!

Share has established a total of 30 AL classes in remote villages across Turkanaland, with a total of 999 students (as of October 2020) attending functional classes on a weekly basis. Sessions are provided Monday through Friday – at least 3 hours each day – primarily to shepherd boys and girls. Many students receive Christ as Savior through reading of the Bible with the help of their teachers. Students are given a hard-copy Bible and encouraged to join Lighthouses upon graduation. Those who have benefited from the program since its inception in 2001 are now taking leadership roles in their churches. A total of 14 AL students have become Sunday School teachers.

A total of 241 AL students are participating in DMM Lighthouses, and 11 are Champions of their own Lighthouses. They are reading and teaching the Bible in their own language to their own people!

AL Prayer Points

  • Pray for more AL Classes to be established throughout Turkanaland, so many more Turkana people can learn how to read the Word of God for themselves.
  • Pray for more AL students to join Lighthouses, so they can become disciple-makers in their communities.

The Gospel is changing lives way out in the villages through the AL Ministry!
