Pastors’ Wives are Encouraged

“Words cannot describe our experience and all God did while we were with the Pastors’ wives in Poland! The conference went better than we expected!”

Words cannot describe our experience and all God did while we were there.

There were 21 ladies at the Pastor’s Wives Conference and 33 at the Church Growth Conference. We had God ordained opportunities to minister to several women and also their husbands. The conferences went better than we expected.

The buzz around the camp during the conferences was from the men saying things like, “Wow, it sounds like our women are getting really good things from the conference and I want to hear also.” We witnessed a woman saying she had enough material to share with the ladies in her church for six months, and others who said this conference was well worth the time to come.

We attended a small, but very influential church in a village on Sunday. We cried most of the service as we felt very humbled by the Lord and the people who attended. They loved on us and we will have those memories etched in our minds forever.

We praise God for the connection He made with SOS International so we could have this opportunity to be blessed beyond what we ever imagined.

“The KACECE community will never be the same after the seminar.”

Dear Friends,

On October 28th – 1st November we hosted a very successful leadership seminar that was facilitated by Dr. Rich Frazer, the President of SOS International. SOS International trains and equips leaders all over the world in the area of Christian leadership, church planting, discipleship, evangelism, family ministries, community leadership and women’s ministries, among others. We are grateful SOS International accepted KACECE’s invitation to come.

The community leadership training was an eye-opener for the leaders. The experience has left both civic and Christian leaders united with one goal of serving God’s people. The church leaders saw how their lack of cooperation among them and their churches was destroying the church of Christ. Pastors who used to be suspicious of one another are now meeting every month to pray for and encourage one another. The Chief, after hearing of the importance of leaders having Christ-like character, has a new council of elders who are committed to serving the community instead of receiving.

It also changed individuals, especially men, by showing them how to provide godly leadership in their families.

The KACECE community will never be the same after the seminar.

Sincerely Yours in Christ,

Prof. Dr. Adam K. arap Chepkwony, Ph.D.
