ON FIELD SINCE:
1983
PROFILE:
When I arrived in Kenya in 1983, my expectation of the kind of work I would be doing was very different to the ministry that the Lord has drawn me into. As a trained nurse, I initially I thought I would be involved in medical practice but, while my profession has been invaluable to me, I soon realised that the greater need was in the children’s ministry. Since the inception of our work in Kenya we have worked with the Bible Christian Faith Church (BCFC) which is a separatist evangelical church. For the majority of my time in Kenya I have been actively involved in the Sunday School work of the BCFC and this ministry has grown over the years to thirty two Sunday Schools with approximately 2000 children. Sixty BCFC Sunday School teachers teach these children each Lord’s Day. Over the years I have developed a Sunday School curriculum with lessons in Swahili, covering the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, in a period of seven years and also a programme for teacher training.

In 1998 this children’s ministry was extended with the development of the BCFC Christian Academy which caters for children from pre-school right through to the end of their secondary education. At present the schools have an attendance of over 800 children and young people supported by over sixty members of staff. I assist with the management of the Academy under the direction of the School Board and alongside the school principal, Miss Noreen McAfee.

Over the years a Bookshop and Literature ministry has been developed and two bookshops have been opened in, Kitale and Kapenguria. It is my vision to see a third Bookshop open in Kakamega, Western Kenya and we are praying for an open door in that town.   I have also been involved in translation work and having translated and printed the Pilgrim’s Progress in Swahili, we now distribute this booklet throughout Kenya and in the neighbouring countries.

The Bible Christian Faith Church has a bible college which seeks to train Evangelists and Pastors and I have been teaching classes in the college since its inception. It is our vision to see the college further established and are much in prayer that God will raise up many young Kenyans to be trained for the Christian Ministry.
