EC Readers Help Out Kisii Missionary District

English Churchman Readers Helping Kenyan Missionary District

Readers of the English Churchman have responded to the story we ran in this publication in May regarding the Anglican Church in Kenya’s, Kisii Area Bishopric.  Some monies have been sent to purchase Bibles and Prayerbooks in the Ekegusii language.

Bishop John Orina thanks those that have responded to his request and asks that they continue to pray for the ministry as they try and expand the work of the diocese in formation.  The Kisii Area Bishopric will become the Diocese of Upper Southern Nyanza in the new year.

The young bishop has been busily at work visiting with congregations in the sparsely populated region but rains are making it increasingly difficult for him to make pastoral calls.  Bishop Orina is praying that some sort of four-wheel drive vehicle can be obtained to facilitate his travel.  He asks our readers to make it a matter of prayer and thanks them for their partnership in the gospel.

One member of a new congregation in the diocese told the EC that his wife went to gather firewood last week and came face to face with a large cobra.  Thankfully, she was unharmed.

Translation work is still ongoing with the Thirty-nine Articles of Religion into the Ekegusii language so that they will be included in the next edition of the Book of Common Prayer.

Covid-19 has brought about another lockdown to the region that is already short of medical care.

Bishop Orina is still hoping to establish a mission partnership with Crosslinks to aid with training.
