Gerald and Louise sent an update in early October 2020.
Our Crosslinks Mission Partners Gerald and Louise Mwangi were in Ballinderry on Sunday 8th September 2019. They brought their twin boys called Jeremiah and Daniel and told us a bit about their work. They both work with iServe Africa.
Gerald leads a discipleship programme called TransformD for young people after they have finished high school. The Kenyan education system has a natural gap from January to August so it is a strategic time to offer a discipleship programme. It means that the young people don’t have to delay their studies and it makes good use of this free time. The programme runs for six months and is held at the iServe Africa premises.
The main focus is to deepen their faith and knowledge of the Bible while also making time for mentorship, life skills and cross-cultural mission training. It includes a month-long mission trip within Kenya. The programme also runs a 500m2 greenhouse to teach about farming, teamwork and the theology of work. The young people leave TransformD better prepared for their next stage of education or employment, stronger in their Christian faith and with some good Christian friendships formed during their time there.
