Before leaving for furlough in December, the missionaries at DSM were ministering to 135 pastors and ministry leaders. Upon arrival in April, the attendance had jumped to 165. The May-July semester saw over 200 disciples! The demand for bible teaching has grown so much, that the ministry has had to add two additional days of teaching per week! But perhaps the most amazing part of this blessing is the fact that the five new teachers that DSM is using are former students! Please pray for these new disciple makers: Pastor Daniel Matheka, Pastor Felix Atila, Pastor Simon Mise, Pastor Edward Owino and Pastor David Ochieng (left to right above). Please prayerfully consider joining us in Nairobi as we minister along side these amazing men of God!

We would love to share with you or your church how you can be a part of this amazing ministry to the pastors of the least in Kenya! If you are interested in finding out more about Disciple Support Ministries, our heart for Kenya, and how you can partner with the ministry, please consider meeting with us. We would also love to share at your church, bible study, or small group!

Mungu Bariki, (God Bless)
