As we approach completion of our strategic outreach among the remaining unreached villages in Turkanaland through our DMM methodology, and as the outreach to Toposaland gets underway, we believe God is now calling SHARE to accelerate the spread of the Gospel into South Sudan, Ethiopia, Uganda and beyond by intentionally targeting and building a strong base of next generation believers across the northern frontier of Turkanaland. The next generation will become an army of spiritually and cognitively equipped disciples that will make it happen!

To do so, SHARE has now launched a “Next-Gen” initiative in partnership with like-minded churches and ministries. This initiative constitutes construction of DMM-based Sending Centers where training, spiritual growth, and maturity of the next-generation will take place. SHARE has identified 14 strategic sites for the centers.

The partnership will prepare the next generation at these centers by providing Sunday School and Education/Training opportunities for children and youth 5-7 days a week. Integral to the curriculum will be the established and proven contextualized DMM Methodology. Currently, the two northern frontier SHARE zones in Turkanaland – Kalobeyei and Kachoda – that border South Sudan, Ethiopia, and Uganda comprise a total of 680 children and youth in their programs!

A church in the U.S. has funded 5 of the 14 Sending Centers, another ministry has funded 3, and an individual donor has funded 1. The same church and another ministry have committed to jointly provide matching donations (50% each) to build all the remaining 5 centers, with the ministry committing to the final 14th building. This is God’s doing, and it’s pleasing to our eyes (Ps. 118:23).

Construction of the first of the 14 Centers began in April 2022 in Kangipusia Village, Kachoda Zone. Another crew will begin construction of the second Center sometime in May 2022 in Lomilmil Village.

These centers will impact the Gospel in Kenya and beyond. We are so thankful for the generosity and commitment of the donors to ensure all the centers are built and the Next-Gen Initiative becomes a reality in the course of 2022! To God be all the glory! We invite you to partner with us in this important outreach through your prayers and financial support.
