In January, we celebrated the ground breaking of our new Project 24 site in Nyamira Diocese. Here is a note from Kissinger the Project Manager.
Having just been established as a new diocese, Nyamira is now part of the church project, building their first Project 24 site. Several LCMS missionaries, the bishops of each ELCK dioceses as well as the acting archbishop Dr. Rev. Joseph Ochola attended the ceremony. It was a beautiful day in Nyamira as we took a tour of the grounds that were donated for the new site. The architect as well as the contractor were present, enabling the ELCK leadership and the community to meet them and encourage them in their work. We are grateful for the partnership between the ELCK and the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. It is through these two church bodies that the Gospel continues to be shared throughout Kenya. Bishop of Nyamira Diocese, Bishop Aranda said “To me as a bishop, I’m very much blessed and there are some children who are our neighbors and don’t get food. Today I have seen the hand of God, and I thank God that we can reach our helpless neighbors.”
Here is a picture of some of the progress that has been made.
