Kenya’s Pokot tribe is turning from darkness to light
through the life-transforming gospel of Christ
The story below is from a recent quarterly report from Mission ONE’s partner, Africa Inland Church, concerning Rev. Job Kitum Kisang, a pastor and church planter who is part of the AIC Kenya Team …
In the northwest of Kenya, where Kenya borders with the country of Uganda, lives a primitive tribe known as the Pokot. This tribe is pastoralist who has a rich cultural diversity which includes cattle rustling, dancing and they live in huts, they are half naked, and above all they are war-like tribe. Rev. Job Kitum Kisang is one of AIC pastors stationed there, with the help of Mission ONE support.
For years now he has provided these hostile tribes the Gospel of Jesus Christ and as for today many, many families have joined the new churches opened in the area—they have started schools, they have adopted the culture of wearing clothes. Those who have been converted to Christianity are praising Christ in their cultural dancing style and jumping 4 feet high in their praise and worship times. In the first quarter pastor Kisang started a church and in this second quarter he has also planted another. In this story we focus him posing a picture with his new church members and the baptism candidates.
Very quickly the Holy Spirit of God through His people is changing darkness to light to the Pokot community. Warring other tribes and cattle rustling has changed to praises for God in the churches.
We at Mission ONE praise the Lord for our partnership with the AIC Kenya Team, and for the ministry of Job Kitum Kisang and his co-laborers among the Pokot people in Kenya.
