I just discovered a new people group that needs to hear the gospel message-the RENDILLE of Northern Kenya-2% evangelized
For a few years we have been working with the Samburu tribe located in the same region. The Samburu are becoming more evangelized and trained because they are more integrated into the Kenyan culture than the Rendilli. There are presently several missionaries working among them and starting Bible training centers to train new pastors.
I think it's amazing that the Jesus Film has been translated into their native tongue. God Bless the translators who work on that film! The oral history of this Cushitic tribe indicates they are of Jewish descent.
They traveled through the Suez Canal through Ethiopia to their present homeland. They descended through the Cushitic family lines with the Somali people.
When the Somali people were traveling from the Suez Canal through Ethiopia the Somali people chose to go toward Somali for good pasture. The Rendille people refused to go with them and separated to their present homeland around Marsabit. They rejected the land of the Somali's and were thereafter called "Rertit".
The Somalis consider them rejected people. The name Rendille is a colonial misinterpretation of the word "rertit", which means separated, refused or rejected in the Somali and Rendille languages.
They are a fascinating people-read more about them http://www.joshuaproject.net/people-profile.php?peo3=14543&rog3=KE

Children say "Thank You" for the funds for the new school in Nairobi.
The mean from the Bible college wrote and printed their own gospel tract and handed it out to the men at their workplace.
