Kapenguria Diocese Mission & Ministry Partners 

About the Partnership:  In 2014, we met the bishop of Kitale Diocese, the Right Rev. Stephen Kewasis through our bishop, Bill Atwood.  He spent some time with us here in Castle Rock, and the Lord put it on our hearts, together, to love and support one another.  
In 2017, because of the growth of the diocese, a new missionary area was created, called the Pokot Missionary Area. This expansive region is under the direction of assistant bishop, Samson Tuliapus.  Our rector, Fr. Theron Walker visited the region in October of 2017, and was able to meet many of these dear brothers and sisters in Christ, and to see the good fruit of the gospel.  Today, that missionary area is the new Kapenguria Diocese. The Kenyans tell us their needs, set the standards, and share with us ministry progress on a regular regular calls on Wattsapp!  

Ministry Values: Bishop Stephen is very keen to teach us that evangelism always precedes development.  Development projects certainly are a great witness, and the needs are great, but hearts must changed for the whole person to be changed and blessed. 


 During Lent, we raise funds to support evangelism and development needs. 100% of the funds go directly to the people!

Motorbikes for Lay Evangelists: We helped purchase 17 motorbikes for layman evangelists and clergy who travel into remote areas to tell people the Good News of God in Christ. $1,392 per motorbike.

Chickens & Goats: Providing a family with laying hens, a rooster, or goats provides them with "food security."  A pair of goats costs $174. A set of chickens $20.

Church Construction: In 2017 money given by Emmaus built a new frame and roof over St. Barnabas in Marich. Their building was wiped out by termites. In 2018, we followed up raising funds to buy the bricks to finish the facility. In 2021 we provided funds for five new frames and roofs so new congregations are no longer meeting under the trees, but have a roof over their heads. In 2020 we're seeking funds for eight at $783 each.

Seminarian Support: In 2017 we began a new ministry of supporting seminarians. We've seen several through to graduation and ordination. We are currently supporting FIVE students at $700 per student.
