Final report for 2021 from Charles Otieno Owino leader of KHC. It was prepared following an end-of-year meeting of the KHC leaders.
KHC 2021 OVERVIEW OF PROGRESS:
2021 was the most successful year for us here, since KHC was founded upon the revelation of God’s word, and prayers in 2010.
In every place we visited with the gospel, a positive outcome was realized and despite a few challenges from religious leaders, we were able to sail through and we give God the glory!
HOUSE CHURCH GROUPS:
We are pleased to report we have been able to plant fourteen house church groups, with thirteen in Kenya and one in Nyamuzi, Tanzania.
Mubachi in Migori region, – Buembu in Migori region, – Kokendi in Migori region, – Bondo in Migori region, – Ong’er in Nyatike region, – Ndhiwa in Homa-Bay region, – Karungu in Nyatike region, – Opapo in Rongo region, – Nyarombo in Migori region, -Lidha in Karungu region, -Ogembo in Kisii region, Ogembo in Kericho region, – Kogaja in Busia region, -Nyamuzu, in Tanzania.
In Kehancha, Kuria region, God has given us a breakthrough, and a wide door is opened for the KHC team to visit the region on January 13th-17th, 2022. Hopefully, a new church group will be founded there.
We expect exciting additions in 2022, and it is our hope and prayers that in 2022 the KHC team will be able to take the gospel to places, we were not able to visit in 2021.
NUMBER OF CHURCH GROUPS MEMBERS:
In 2021, many lives have been reached for Jesus Christ and an additional five church groups were founded. Also, we have witnessed a greater increase of members than in previous years.
The total number of our church group members in the 8 church groups has increased from 300 in 2020, to 398 in 2021.
DISCIPLESHIP & EVANGELISM CAMPAIGNS:
Discipleship and evangelism are at the heart of the KHC movement. And at our last meeting, we have resolved that KHC will go on discipleship & evangelism mission trips twice a month.
In 2021, our evangelism team led by pastor Jacob was able to visit many places, ministering in market places, villages, hospitals, prisons, and schools to marginalized families and destitute children, sharing with them the love of God and leading many to Jesus Christ.
In the past 12 months, KHC team members have been able to visit 14 secondary schools, 25 homes, 5 prisons, 5 hospitals, 15 marketplaces, and ministered to 150 orphans and vulnerable children (OVC).
3) TRAINING THE TRAINERS:
In 2021, KHC was able to give training to 4 potential house church leaders and after undergoing our training for six months they are now being sent out as ambassadors for Jesus Christ with the sole aim of making disciples and starting a house church group. This year, two of our disciples & trainees will be sent to Mwanza in Tanzania as ambassadors for Christ.
4) WEEKLY BIBLE STUDIES:
Here at KHC, we have a weekly Bible study, whereby church group members meet once a week to pray and search the scriptures.
5) EMPOWERING THE POOR:
KHC has an ongoing empowering programme to help support widows, orphans, and needy members in the KHC movement.
Every church group is encouraged to start an income-generating project, such as Maize farming, growing vegetables, dairy farming, shopkeeping, poultry keeping, second-hand cloth business, etc, this is to help support our church group members to become financially stable
KHC PLANS FOR 2022:
KHC movement still has unfulfilled plans to buy a large screen TV and a computer to help KHC leaders to link with LEN and other parachurch organizations to hold zoom meetings. This will help KHC learn and share end time signs of Jesus second coming and other teachings about the millennium Kingdom
Discipleship & Evangelism:
In 2022 the KHC movement plans to take its discipleship making programme and evangelism campaigns to new regions, and territories, moving outside the current eleven regions
Bible study programme
KHC still has an unfulfilled plan to open a KHC library, where some books from recommended authors can be loaned out. This will help our members to learn and understand from different authors about the last day’s church, prophetic end-times signs of Jesus second coming, living eternal now and about building a kingdom business, etc.
KHC still has an unfulfilled plan to open up a medical facility/laboratory where church group members, and other people from the neighborhood communities, can come for medical check-up, and treatment at a minimal, affordable fee. Hopefully, this will help the financial stability and growth of the KHC movement.
2022 KHC GOALS:
To spread the gospel far and wide as God leads and to make disciples who will make more disciples of Christ.
We have set a goal for 2022 of reaching out to 700 people with the gospel and starting up 6 more house church groups planted on a proper Biblical foundation.
The growth of this discipleship movement is a God-led blessing from Ron Edwards, founder of the website http://www.livingeternal.net (Living Eternal Now), and supporters who have helped with prayers and finances. Thank you all!
KHC FORTH-COMING MISSION TRIP:
On Jan, 13th-17th, 2022, KHC planters will go on a four days mission trip to Kehancha in the Kuria region. For some time now, we have had requests from brothers there for us to send an evangelism team. At our recent leader’s meeting, we resolved to visit this region.
Request: KHC is requesting prayers and financial help of Aus$ 300 from our LEN team members to help us go on this mission.
You are all a significant part of our success in growing this important discipleship movement in Kenya.
Charles Otieno Owino.
I am hoping that some of the followers of LEN will join me this year to support the growth of the KHC movement. As Charles stated above, one of the projects we have not been able to fund is the purchase of a large screen TV and computer and a WiFi plan for Charles so that I and others can connect with him on Zoom. Also, I would like to purchase some books in English and Swahili for training and the proposed KHC library.
I have set up a Donations icon for KHC donations on the LEN Home Page.
