Christian missionary in Kenya
Would you like to meet a Christian missionary in Kenya - up close and personal? Well, you've come to the right place. As a matter of fact, we have not just one Christian missionary in Kenya, but a few. And you can get to know them by peeking into their journals (blogs) right now!
A few of the blogs in Kenya...
I won't list all of them here, but let me give you a few to get started with. First, check out Pure Christianity. One of the most popular of the missionary blogs out of Kenya, this one was started back in May 2005. The nice thing about this one is that both husband and wife blog from time to time. The Brooks family serve in Nakuru. Their ministry is varied, but they have a special heart for the orphans of Kenya. Their blog includes pictures, stories, personal thoughts on life and culture, and more.
Blogging since 2006, we have the Brown Family. They have an excellent site and are well connected on things like Skype, Twitter, Picasa photo gallery, and so on. They even run a podcast. Their feed is found at brownfamily.ws/feed/
Another blog we've been watching here is FiveKennys. Blogging since the summer of 2006, we've been able to see the Kennys' progress from early on. The Kennys work in Muslim outreach and community development in Kenya.
Postscript is one of our newest Christian missionary in Kenya blogs. This is a very active blog, with lots of posts ever since their move to Nairobi in January 2009. The feed is at www.thepubols.com/feed/
And here are two more Christian missionaries in Kenya - Cathy and Mark. This is a full website with lots of information. The blog was started in the summer of 2006. Cathy was actually in Tanzania before Kenya, so she has an interesting cross cultural perspective. Coming from working in an elementary school in the USA, she focuses on serving children and children's workers. She oversees ministry not only in Kenya, but also in Ethiopia, Burundi, and Tanzania.
Check out Cathy and Mark's Blog for more about her life as a Christian missionary in Kenya and beyond!
There's always more to see
Every once in a while I add another Christian missionary in Kenya to the aggregator on our home page. There are already some that I haven't written about here. For the latest on missionaries to Kenya and other parts of the world, keep tabs on Missionary Blog Watch.
And don't forget to encourage and support these missionaries. Did you know that nearly 35 million people live in Kenya? That there are still many language groups that don't have a Bible? That there is a major need for trained leaders in the Church? That life expectancy is less that 50 years? That most Kenyans live on less than US$1 per day? That a long lasting drought has made the situation even worse? Please remember to pray for Christian missionaries in Kenya.
