The SEED – November 2020
NOVEMBER 2020 EDITION
‘I am telling you the truth: those who hear My words and believe in Him who sent Me have eternal life. They will not be judged, but have already passed from death to life.’
Updates from the Zones indicated in blue are featured in this newsletter.
There are 45 churches in Katapakin Zone, with a total of 192 believers enrolled in 46 Lighthouses that are led by 41 Champions. A total of 21 believers have led others to Christ. The Audio Bible provided by SHARE is a great teaching/learning tool for those in these Lighthouses, as most of them are oral learners. People are eager to learn more from the Bible, gathering daily to hear from God’s Word and practice telling their stories using the DMM signage bookmarks.
Motivators preach in their respective churches and evangelize in the villages around them. They also visit with their members individually, praying for them and encouraging them in their walk with God. Sometimes that involves meeting their physical needs too.
Numbers are fluctuating due to migration caused by the rising water of Lake Turkana, which has affected 6 villages – Aporokit, Ekwar, Nanyangkipi, Ngimuraei, Lokoyo and Merier.
Despite COVID restrictions, 3 new churches were planted in Katapakin Zone, and 11 people accepted Christ in the past month!

People are remaining strong in their faith because Motivators are making efforts to visit them regularly, encouraging them and praying with them. There are 36 churches in Kalemng’orok Zone. This past month 28 people accepted Christ and 41 people were baptized.
A total of 44 Lighthouses have formed, with 44 Champions leading them using Audio Bibles as their main source of Spiritual nourishment. Believers are hearing and memorizing the Word of God, “hiding” it in their hearts (Ps. 119:11). If for some reason the pastor/Motivator is unable to make it to the village that week, the people gather and someone plays Scripture from the device. After, they join in singing along to songs that are recorded on the device. More and more people are wanting to have their own Audio Bible so they can listen to the Bible more often. They are also asking for more DMM signage bookmarks to use for sharing with others how God has changed their lives. The harvest is indeed plentiful and SHARE International is doing all they can to supply the tools to meet the need.
