I. Fighting in South Sudan

In South Sudan fighting between the government and rebels continues. In Upper Nile the rebels claim to have repulsed a government attack on their positions. Meanwhile IGAD, the body leading peace negotiation efforts, has proposed a new power-sharing deal which would give Riek Machar administrative control of the three contested states (Unity, Upper Nile and Jonglei). A surprising suggestion, because this appears to be part of Sudan’s master-strategy, on the basis that Machar would then effectively hand those states to Sudan. But in fact the proposal has been rapidly and roundly rejected by both sides. Pray for those who persevere, despite all difficulties, in searching for the right key to a peace agreement that will hold and be observed.

II. Sudan has become a hostile environment for Christians.

Two South Sudanese Christian missionaries, invited to Khartoum to preach, have been arrested and charged with capital offences – “undermining the constitution”, and “waging war against the state” – because in their preaching they criticised both a corruption scandal involving the illegal sale of church land, and also the harsh treatment of Christians. Pray that the courts will uphold justice and the charges be dismissed.

III. Financial Freedom for Families F4 Training Program

Henry Mwaniki thanks God for his trip to South Sudan early June where he begin the series of training sessions for F4 in Juba and Wau. Give thanks to God for the opened door for the F4 Programme to go into South Sudan. Henry Mwaniki and Sarah Gitahi travelled to South Sudan in mid-May to start the F4 training programme in partnership with FOCUS-South Sudan.


Polls in the parliamentary and local elections opened on Monday morning. Gunfire has been heard nightly in the capital, Bujumbura, and scores of people have been killed in unrest since a failed coup attempt last month. The presidential election was due in June but was put back to 15 July after pressure from regional leaders. The African Union (AU) and the United Nation (UN) calls for the election to be postponed seems to have fallen on deaf ears as Nkurunziza’s government rejected the demands, saying conditions were stable enough for a vote and that a delay could create a dangerous political vacuum.

We urge you to pray that the people of Burundi would experience peace and stability in their country again. Pray that the disputes in the country would be solved amicably through negotiations and that the surrounding countries would play a constructive role for their sister country, being arbiters for peace.


Thanksgiving for the Assesment of the Youth & Women Post Election Violence livelihood project Mombasa in partnership with SMEP BANK

The Youth Coordinator James Kweyu was in Mombasa, here he was evaluating the project among the Youth and Women at the Coasta implemented in partnership with SMEP Bank in the aftermaths of the 2007 post election violence.

This was a youth and women empowerment and training programme that had a lending component to provide seed capital to youth who were affected during the 2007 post election violence to rebuild their livelihood.

The project is progressing well and very encouraging reports are coming from the region about the impact of the project. Notable is the religious tolerance amongst Christians and Muslims who are transacting their businesses amicably,’ says James Kweyu.

Thank God for the donors who facilitated this program and pray for CMS-Africa’s Youth Training program to continue expanding its horizons across Kenya, to the whole world helping the youth to discover develop and deploy their God given talents in order to transform the communities where they live.

F4 Training Program at All Saints Cathedral

The Financial Freedom for Families (F4) training programme through its churchwide campaign is going on well and the team is full of thanksgiving for the support received thus far from the All Saints Cathedral. “For the last 3 months we have been training the church workers, church-owned school staff members as well as the entire congregation. Classes are scheduled to run till August this year,” says Henry Mwaniki.

Henry is grateful to God that many of the participants are grasping fundamental stewardship principles as spelled out in the F4 program. Please pray for the entire F4 team even as they work with the Church to foster biblical principles of stewardship. Pray also that the participants will continue through the training as they experience transformation.


We thank God for the BAM gathering that took place last weekend in Kitale in partnership with Africa Theological Seminary (ATS). “Those who attended were equipped to serve the Lord in the market places and we believe this will go a long way in spreading the gospel of Christ in Western Kenya,” says Rev Dennis Tongoi.

Praise God for the 197 people who attended this gathering against a planned number of 100. Participants came from Kakamega, Eldoret, Kisumu, Nairobi, Bungoma among others and were drawn from various churches and church related organization including Africa Gospel Church, Friends Church, Anglican Church, Deliverance etc.

CMS-Africa Dinner in August 2015
Plans are underway to host a mega fundraising dinner in support of the footprints campaign on 29th August. The inaugural Dinner will will be held and the main speaker Mr. Ram Gidoomal from UK has confirmed as the distinguished guest.

To date we have sent out an e-card invitation to nearly two thousand people and we are trusting God that as many as have received this call to action will respond in the affirmative.

Please pray for the Central Planning Committee led by Rev. Dennis Tongoi even as they put in place strategies and plans to see this event succeed. The goal is to raise Sh.50million to support the ongoing construction of a 9- storey building that is designed to ensure sustainable missions work in and from Africa. Pray also that the various categories of people who will be reached out to become partakers of this God’s mission at such a time as this.

850 Chania Building Project

Thank God for the signing of an MOU with an investor

“Praise God for the signing of an MOU with an investor from UK to fully finance the development of the 850 Chania project. Pray for operational issues and preparation being put in place to ensure that the construction work starts sooner than later that the Lord shall orchestrate all things to fall in place as planned,” says Rev.
