Praises & Petitions from Turkanaland: Week 16

 In Praises & Petitions from Turkanaland of 2020


The Momentum in On!

As we all continue to call upon the Lord in earnest for mercy and physical healing, and purging of the COVID pandemic, we are also witnessing amazing spiritual awakening and healing taking place in hidden pockets in Turkanaland. Even with stern restrictions caused by COVID, SHARE-supported Motivators reported that 211 people put their faith in Christ as Savior in the Second Quarter alone. A total of 369 Lighthouses have now been birthed with 2,075 disciples attending, and at least 110 of those disciples have made disciples of others! The Lord obviously knew what was coming when He moved us to initiate the Disciple-Making Methodology at the beginning of 2020. The spread of the Gospel and consequent encounters with the salvific power of the Lord continues through the Lighthouses!

We want to keep and accelerate the momentum in the targeted unreached villages all across Turkanaland as we enter the final stretch of 2020. To do so, I am requesting you to help keep our Motivators “on the go” by increasing your giving so as to raise the remaining $400,000 towards the needs of the remainder of Year 2020.

You have read and heard in our weekly “Praises & Petitions” and monthly “SEED” bulletins the testimonials of just a few of the many Lighthouse disciple-makers. The momentum is on! Help us get to the Yearend Finish Line. You may donate online or by mail (see options below).

The Disciple-Making Movement (DMM) in Lorugum Zone continues to progress with more and more disciples joining Lighthouses. The number of Lighthouses has more than doubled since the end of 2Q, now with 24! All of the SHARE Motivators throughout the Zone have established at least 1 Lighthouse in their churches (see chart below). Pray with us that the Lord will pave the way to enter the targeted unreached villages each of these Motivators is pursuing to reach with the Gospel before the end of this year.
    At least 8 of the disciples in these Lighthouses have led lost souls to Christ. Believers in Munyaruk Village are grateful that the local witchdoctor has turned to Christ and is now a disciple-maker! Pray that all of the disciples will be courageous and committed to sharing the Gospel with the remaining lost souls in their respective villages.


*These two Motivators – Samuel and Silas – are in need of support. We request you to consider sponsoring one of them at $2,400/year. For more information about them visit their profiles here: Samuel and Silas.


My name is John Etot. I was once a thief and would disturb many people in my village (Turkwel). I was very stubborn to my parents too. One day, Motivator Peter Esinyen met me, and he shared the Word of God with me. I began to reflect on my life and came to my senses. Thereafter, I decided to give my life to Christ. Now I am interested in sharing the Gospel with others and telling them how the Word of God is trustworthy. Thank you, God’s people. May God bless you so much.


  • Successful survey and start of sinking a borehole at Nakiria Zone DMM Center last week



  • More men to be drawn to the Lord and join Lighthouses; as most of the disciples in Turkanaland are women and children
  • Successful construction of Kalemng’orok Zone DMM Center and safety for the crew
