SUGUTA MARMAR - NORTHERN KENYACrossroads mission statement is about teaching local people so they are qualified to teach others in their community...in their own language...in their own country....and with their own budget. Joseph Lelurk, a member of the Samburu tribe of Northern Kenya, is a shinning example of the effectiveness of this model.
We met Joseph ten years ago when attended a pastor's workshop which was being held at the guest house where we were staying. Joseph would stay after class and express how much he wanted to take the message of the cross to his people who were living in the most remote and isolated ares of northern Kenya. Joseph has been faithful to His Father's will for his life and developed one of the most effective local mission teams working in Kenya today. They use cars, motorbike, and local transportation to take the gospel message to areas not reached by Western missionaries...all of this while being a devoted husband and father to four beautiful children. May God continue to bless Joseph in his work for the kingdom.
CONGRATULATIONS to the 2019 graduates at Suguta Baptist Bible College, Kenya. "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that need not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." 2 Timothy 2:15.
