    James states, “We are experiencing an increase in number of church members since last month, due to the obedience of the disciples sharing their personal story and God’s story with their neighbors, and we glorify God for that. In fact, we are starting another cell-group that will cater the new attendees (10).
        The areas I am serving and targeting to reach are hostile, due to tribal raids and livestock theft, making meetings insecure. Nomadism and pastoralism are also a challenge in these areas. This affects visitations and follow-ups. Pray with us that God will provide good rains and pasture.
        We praise God for the DMM Methodology that has brought a new lifestyle to our villages, and Jesus Christ’s message is shared most simply! Thanks to Share International and the Lodwar team for training us and providing materials. God blessings are with you all, Amen.” – August 2020

    Note to Sponsor:
