Countryman

Kairos would like to highlight missionary Joseph Countryman for all he does for Jesus in East Africa. At the age of 11 he became a street kid. He got hooked on drugs and stole to feed himself. As a teen he got involved in gangs and was in and out of jail. He did graduate school through it all. Eventually someone from Teen Challenge approached him and he started the program. After three months he accepted Jesus and graduated. Later he was sponsored to go through seminary school and graduated with a diploma in theology.

He now helps others get out of the situation that he used to be in. He has experienced the hurt and desperation that comes from being on the streets. He loves those who are down and out in the streets. He spends much of his time caring for those who need to know God and waits for them to ask for help to get off the streets. This ministry takes a lot of time and effort and he cannot do alone. Will you partner with Kairos to help Joseph so he will have what he needs to keep being a blessing? You make a real difference! We thank you! You can give to Joseph on our donation page, just note that you would like the funds to go to him.

Below are the before and after photos. He has come such a long way and needs our support to keep touching others that need to come out of similar situations. Thank you for your support

December in Bangui

Bangui Happiness (2)

These are the government officials of the Ministry of Tourism and the Ministry of Social Welfare  of Central African Republic. They officiated the Kairos Conference Dec. 5th-8th in Bangui, of the CAR. Kairos missionary Joseph Kabochi and I shared  the Christ-centered way of transformation for substance abusers.

UN Peacekeepers

We had no idea that the capital city of Bangui is one of the few politically stable locations in the country;  80% of the territory of Central African Republic is overrun with rebel fighters. United Nations troops have been keeping peace for over 3 years.
The nation’s education system in the outlying areas has been abolished, due to the violence. Parents in these areas are rising up to educate the children as best they can. Joseph and I are only beginning to fully understand how important our assignment in Bangui really was.

Bringing the gospel, the good news of Jesus as the hope for the addicted was an awesome privilege! May God bring peace to the Central African Republic!

Motorbike for Countryman

Recently Kairos Global Missions was able to raise funds for Missionary Joseph Countryman to have a motorbike to get around Nairobi and spread the Gospel to the lost. Countryman would spend most of his day in transit to various places in Nairobi using the public transit. Now he is free to travel however he pleases and much faster with his new motorbike!! Thank you to our awesome donors who helped make this dream a reality!!

Shoe sacks for Burundi TC

 

About a month ago, Kairos Global Missions was able to raise funds to buy Burundi Teen Challenge two sacks of shoes to sell and make a profit to help pay for the expenses of the center. Alexis Ciza, Executive Director of Burundi Teen Challenge, owns a shop in Gitega, Burundi where he provides for his family and the center’s needs. Thank you to our awesome donors who helped Burundi Teen Challenge!!

Meeting so many people with such deep commitments to Jesus has changed my life. This blog will be devoted to short updates about experiences I will want to share. I’ll keep in touch….
