Answering the Cry: Extending Evangelism to Ugunja Village, Siaya County, Kenya

In the heart of Siaya County, Kenya, lies the village of Ugunja—a place that once grappled with darkness and despair. It was in this very village that a transformative movement began, fueled by the unwavering commitment of the church’s mission team in partnership with Deeper Life mahinga . Their mission? To extend the reach of evangelism, bringing hope, healing, and salvation to every doorstep.

The Genesis: July 2019

The seeds of change were sown in July 2019. Ugunja, though picturesque, harbored deep-rooted challenges. A lack of spiritual refuge plagued the community—the absence of a church building left souls adrift. The brew dens, where despair often found solace, stood as stark reminders of brokenness. Cultural practices held sway, obscuring the light of truth. Many remained untouched by the Gospel, ensnared in cycles of sexual immorality and suffering. The specter of AIDS loomed large, claiming lives and leaving families shattered.

The Mission Unfolds

Undeterred by adversity, the church’s mission team embarked on their sacred journey. Armed with faith, compassion, and a burning desire to make a difference, they stepped into Ugunja. Their mission was clear: to bridge the gap between heaven and earth, to bring the Good News to every doorstep.

  • Breaking Cultural Chains: The mission team engaged with the community, dismantling cultural barriers. They celebrated diversity, weaving the vibrant threads of tradition into the fabric of faith. Slowly but surely, the grip of old customs loosened, making way for the transformative power of Christ.
  • Healing and Hope: The Gospel flowed like a healing balm. Families torn apart by disease found solace in the promise of eternal life. The mission team stood by the sick, praying for restoration. AIDS, once a silent specter, now faced fierce resistance. Hope blossomed anew.
  • Empowering Lives: Education, vocational training, and mentorship became their tools. The mission team empowered the youth, equipping them to break free from cycles of poverty and despair. Dreams took flight, and futures brightened.

2021: A Pandemic Pivot

As the world grappled with the pandemic, the mission persisted. The month shifted to November, yet the flame of evangelism burned undiminished. Virtual services bridged physical gaps, and prayer transcended boundaries. The church adapted, but its purpose remained unaltered: to be a lighthouse, guiding lost souls to the shores of grace.

2022 and Beyond

In 2022, July reclaimed its significance. The mission team recommitted to their calling. Ugunja, now transformed, stood as a testament to unwavering faith. The brew dens were silenced, replaced by hymns of praise. Culture, once a stumbling block, now danced in harmony with truth. Lives were redeemed, and death lost its sting. And so, the cry echoed across Ugunja—a cry of redemption, revival, and relentless love. The church’s mission team, fueled by the Spirit, pressed forward. Their legacy? A village reborn, a people transformed, and a Savior exalted.
