The SEED – November 2022
“In this way the Word of the Lord spread widely and grew in power.“
– Acts 19:20
You all have been a tremendous encouragement to all of us serving the Lord through SHARE. Many, many thanks for your prayers and donations.
We are almost there! We have $139,226 to go to meet this year’s $800,000 budget! I am confident the Lord will provide the amount through His people before December 7th, when I leave for Turkanaland.
I invite you to join me in thanking and praising the Lord for the 4,487 that have been led to faith in Christ as Savior and and the 1,840 believers baptized in Turkanaland and Toposaland between January and October this year, which brings the total number saved to 96,697 and 16,587 baptized (whenever water was available) since 1997!
Together we have witnessed God’s faithfulness through the years. We at SHARE are all set to do even “greater things than these” for Him (John 14:12) in 2023. “The one who calls (us) is faithful, and He will do it” again (1 Thessalonians 5:24). And because we know He will, let’s remain “strong” and go all out to “do exploits” (Daniel 11:32) in His Name!

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!
Thank you SO MUCH for your prayers and support!
One new church was established in Nayada Zone this month – in Kekoroeng’orok Village, where 66 people accepted Christ and 38 baptized! It is under the leadership of Evangelist Sammy Lokato Monti. This brings the total SHARE-planted churches in the zone to 44, which are led by 23 Motivators and Evangelists.
There continues to be many challenges in Nayada Zone. The area has not had any rain since January. This has caused many families to leave the area in search of pasture for their livestock. In spite of this, the church is continuing to grow. A total of 43 people accepted Christ, and 38 were baptized in the zone where water was available.
Evangelism using the DMM methodology (“3-Walks, 3-Circles, & 3-Stones”) has been very effective in reaching the people of Nayada Zone. The Audio Bibles, the DMM Bookmarks and screening of The Jesus Film projectors have greatly increased the spread of the Gospel through the 39 Champions and 241 disciple-makers in the zone.
My name is Paul Eregae. I am a resident of Kekoroeng’orok Village, Nayada Zone. My pastor is Evangelist Michael Lokatur Monti. I would like to thank the SHARE team that came to our village. I used to sell firewood and didn’t know anything about God’s Word. The SHARE team began sharing the Gospel and I understood the message that Christ died for my sins. I confessed my sins, repented, and I am now a new creation, forgiven by God! I was also baptized!
I expressed a desire to work with the youth in my village and to share my faith story with them. The SHARE Team gave me an Audio Bible to help me share the message of the Gospel with them. I cannot thank God enough for this Gospel and for sending the team to our village. Thank you so much SHARE team.”
