With Who?

We will be working with pastor Patrick Ochieng. He is an ordained Reformed Baptist Pastor/Missionary. He works among the Randile People for more than 13 years. His sending church is Emmanuel Baptist Church from Nairobi. He is involved with two church plants among the Randile People. Nick Swanepoel who lived in Korr and was a missionary for more than 30 years among the Randile knows pastor Patrick Ochieng and highly recommends his ministry. Nick Swanepoel said, “Patrick is a dear brother and faithful teacher of the Word. He has a good relationship with the Korr pastors and the AIC (Africa Inland Missions) pastors. He is a keen member of the pastors fellowship and an active member of the Rendille translation committee.”

Date

10 – 27 April 2020

Motivation for date

According to Pastor, Patrick Ochieng, whom we will be working with, April is the best time. It’s school holidays and the children will be back in the villages. Secondly, there are many holidays in that period that enable us to take less leave. Lastly, it’s a great time to share the gospel, it’s Easter.
