In Kenya, Pastor Eric Ngala and his colleagues resumed classes for the LMI Bible Teaching Hub last Friday, when they revised the topic of ‘Church’🇰🇪.
Pastor Eric (in the red shirt) spoke on the practical issues that face the church as the Body of Christ. Pastor Juma (orange and black shirt) shared with students from the Word of God, and Pastor James Omemo (blue and white shirt) encouraged those present to take their studies seriously so that they can truly help the church of Christ.
Sam Ogalo (red and blue checked shirt), whose father Pastor Josiah Ogalo was LMI’s first overseas contact in the 1970’s, also spoke to the students. Sam will be working as an intern with Pastor Eric over the next 12 months, so it was a great opportunity for him to introduce himself. He also reinforced the importance of good hand-hygiene at this time when COVID-19 is spreading fast in Kenya.
The classes are currently taking place outside, under the roof of a structure that will soon provide the chapel at Reformed Theological Seminary (RTS) Bumala. Having this space enables the students to maintain social distancing while they are learning. The students also benefit from the forest that surrounds the RTS campus, as it provides clean, fresh air and a nice cool breeze.
Thank you for your tremendous support that makes endeavours like this possible. Please pray for Pastor Eric, Sam and the students as they continue with their lessons in the weeks and months ahead 🙏🏻.

‘Authentic church is a community of a people on pilgrimage over the passage of time, looking forward to its consummation when the journey will be over in the new heaven and new earth, with the multitude “from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages [and generations] Revelation 7:9 (ESV)” ‘- A quote from Pastor Eric Ngala
