Blogs, Stories and testimonies from the East Africa Region
2015 was a rough year in the region with increased terror activity, political wrangling, and rising anti-‐Christian sentiments and legislation in some of the countries.
Despite these difficulties, Live School continued under the brave leadership of visionary leaders with a dream for G od’s army. These leaders are sometimes under the radar, while other times they are face to face with terror. In Garrisa, Kenya, after the worst terrorist attack on the university, Live School graduated its pioneer students. In the same way, a school on the south coast of Kenya graduated students in spite of the fact that terrorists had attacked their village.
We had various teams and people fly into Nairobi with additional Live School units that saw the number of schools climb from 66 to 112.
The momentum increased with our partners, and we experienced a sense of unity in purpose as we saw breakthrough on the Kenyan border with Ethiopia to establish schools in a town (identification withheld for security reasons). Right after this, some of the Ethiopians went back to start Live Schools in various sentries.
The region obviously saw increased church plant activity in Rwanda, Uganda, and Kenya. A LS graduate, who was a former Muslim, has since started a church i n the middle of his Islamic village. These fellowships meet under trees, in living rooms, and on school properties.
The Live School is seriously impacting the lives of individuals and calling them to ultimate surrender to God’s will, even if it means death, as one student confessed.
To God be the glory as we pray for more fruitfulness and speed.
