Praises & Petitions from Turkanaland: Week 1

 In Praises & Petitions from Turkanaland

We hope you have enjoyed reading about what the Lord is doing in Turkanaland in our weekly Praises & Petitions from Turkanaland segment. We have decided to continue this segment through 2021 as a means to guide you in prayer for the ministry and keep you informed. We invite you to continue participating in prayer with us each week. It is your prayers and support that make it possible for the Turkana people to hear the Gospel, grow in their faith, and become disciple-makers. Thank you so much!




Image    The children in Kodopa Village (ages 2 to 14 years) are eager to learn about Jesus. They are growing in their faith by memorizing Bible verses and praying. The older children are sharing their faith with others.
    A recent follow-up visit in Kapua Village witnessed 14 children give their lives to Christ!
    There are a total of 1,285 children attending Sunday School in Nayada Zone and 21 Sunday School teachers.
Please pray:
  • For the Sunday School teachers as they share the message of God’s love with these children.
  • That the teachers will have grace and a passion to teach the children.
  • That the Lord will help them teach the children the DMM methodology in the simplest way possible, and that they in turn can continue to share their faith with others.


  Image  My name is Susan Iro. I am from Kodopa Village. I have accepted Jesus as my Savior. My Sunday School teacher is Christine Napeyok and I thank God for her.  Before I started coming to Sunday School, I didn’t know who God was and I was afraid even to stand and speak in front of people. But since I asked Jesus Christ into my life, I can now sing, memorize Scripture verses from the Bible; and a I can pray too!
One day I went back to the village where I had two friends and I shared a memory verse from the book of
John, Chapter 3, verse 16 with them: “For God so loved the world that He sent His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” They were intrigued by the verse and wanted to learn more. They are now coming with me to Sunday School where we are learning more about Jesus.
