Transforming East Africa Report- August 2016

“Near the end of the 3 Day leadership conference 5 pastors gave their hearts to Jesus for the very first time, and many 100’s came forward to receive the blessing of the Spirit of adoption from their Father in heaven as true beloved sons…”

Then the Governor of the State of Bungoma asked, “What can we do to help you with your plans to build Teen-boy-orphan Academies in our state? Art Hobba replied, we need 10 Acres of easy access farmland deeded over to us, with no strings attached. “Done!” said the Governor, “When can you start?

HealthCare – Chigger Relief 

African pastors are generally bound by an ancient, deep-rooted tribal-code that considers any form of manual labor, even caring for a suffering member of their church, to be demeaning to their status as “Men of God.” Yes is sound crazy, but it is a widely held belief that spans denominational barriers.

As our trained Regional Pastor-Teams return to their (mostly) rural (and medically underserved) region each season, they continue to model what they have taught, that Jesus’s gospel is wholistic, and so, they bring simple but powerful medical aid to model and train local pastors and Christian leaders how to give direct loving ministry as a servant leader. Many recurring and terrible diseases have remained untreated for millennia. We continue to be surprised at the total absence of basic healthcare and general nutritional knowledge among these sweet people. Less than 10% of Chigger relief is provided by government agencies or other ministries in most of East Africa.

Even as Kenya is the second most prosperous nation in all of Africa, most of their citizens who live in these very rural areas have no utilities, poor drinking water, and have never seen a nurse or a doctor in their lives!  So we return to model to them what this new kind of pastor can do to actually help their sheep beyond sunday services and family milestone events.

Chiggers are a fierce fire of infestation for many rural people, but they thrive on the softer skin of 1-8 year-old children in particular. These are voracious fleas larvae parasites that burrow into the flesh under the skin and incubate millions more of themselves. Some carry this bane in their body for life, corrupting bone and organs. Many who do not receive the (readily available and low cost) medicines will become crippled in their legs for life. What is very cool is that after our men serve and mentor these rural pastors on how to care for their flock in practical ways, many of their local people come to Jesus right at the treatment center!

entire elementary school populations have between 40-60% infestation now because there are no chemical sprays available for these mud-walled, direct floored classrooms. $50 can cure 40 children for one season. $500, can cure 400. Feel your heart say help?

                                            Our Core 300 Kenyan Board
Core 300 Kenya Board is led by Rev. Barack Nyongesa and Rev. Alex Achuti. He coordinates with our US office as he provides leadership and project management for our indigenous Board of Directors in Kenya and our 12 team of two pastors responsible for mentoring other pastors and bringing the message of Core 300 to a specific region in Kenya through 2-day pastors conferences to as many as 100 pastors at a time. They also provide ongoing training and development within their assigned “Parish” including Healthcare relief and training, and small business start-up and management courses.

Lots of good folks adopt an orphan. Why not reach 1,000’s or marginalized people by Adopting a Core 300 Team or Team Member?  Our volunteer pastors are trained and tested for integrity and communication skills before they are anointed for ministry by Core 300. You can join them in their journey’s and watch how they train “Timothy’s” like St.Paul, to start other Regions. your role is to pray for them and to cover their travel and supplies expenses, as they spread the hope and power of the Core 300 message to pastors, village by village.

The Forgotten DemographicOrphan Teenage Boys, they are angry because they know no one cares…

Last year a nationwide uprising of 13-14 year old boys burned 150 middle schools to the ground. Some of them were helped by their own Teachers…

The greatest risk to their nations future, these 14-17 orphaned boys, are cast off from the educational system without hope, without any vocation, or means of support. 250,000 are sent into the streets each year..The high levels of crime, slavery and violence are controlled by older orphan-alumni, and they actively recruit these 8th graders as their new proteges.

 Our vision includes an ambitious goal of building 60 K9 – K12 Leadership Academies by 2030 where qualified indigenous teachers, pastors, and coaches will train, nurture, and graduate 1,800 18 year old young leaders each year.

The State of Bungoma has donated the first 10 Acre parcel to Core 300 already, and we need funds for architectural design right now! Help us raise the first $10,000 of the first $100,000 for our first  Leadership Academy by giving a one-time gift

 

Academy prototype_buildingCropped

Academy Prototype for 120 Boys,  K-9 through K12         According to a 2015 study, NO ONE is addressing this group of discarded teens. Unless we act, these innocents will continue to be the greatest risk to their own nation as they grow into manhood because:

  • They are the “Farm Team” for the majority of crime in Kenya and beyond
  • They are the primary fertile recruiting field for muslim terrorist organizations across the northern border

They will perpetuate the abuse of their wives, enslavement of teenage girls and children, and the perpetuation of every other criminal activity in Kenya

We believe God wants to rescue and redeem these boys with Christian higher education and vocational training, all in the bosom of loving teachers with the redemptive spirit of surrogate mothers and mentoring fathers in the faith.

AFRICA COACH AND BOY

Neither the government or US based charities are serving or giving any support to this glaring unchecked crisis, so we need your help to make this happen. Armed with the donation of five 10 Acre parcels already owned by the RCEA, we break ground in the Winter of 2017 on our first prototype Academy. Send us a note if you’d like to learn more.
