Elim Gospel Church was started seven months ago by Pastor John. The 16 adult members and 20 children convene under a large acacia tree for worship services, Bible study, children’s education and adult literacy programs.

Pastor John participated in training to start new churches that was made possible through your support.

Though church membership has recently stagnated because of nomadism, Pastor John says spiritual strength has enabled him to proceed with ministry during these challenging times. “I have been called by God to serve Him by reaching out to people in Lodwar with the Gospel of Christ. “

Pastor John also says that the small business training included in the adult literacy program has enabled him to set an example to his church on the importance of work.

“The fact that I don’t idle around has prompted my church members to find means of earning income. This is a great step towards eliminating poverty in the church and the community at large.”
