Sowing for Great Harvest

This past weekend, we invested in a training for all school ministers. This is in a bid to sharpen our skills and build morale as we go out for ministry in schools. Most schools are open for the second term of the year and our calendar is set.

Already we have a team ministering at CCI Ruai in the outskirts of Nairobi, and another is getting ready for this weekend to be at Kasikeu Boys High School. This is besides weekly and sunday missions and discipleship programs.

The next weekend will find us in 3 stations; Kasue girls Secondary and Kitui Mixed Secondary schools and a mega schools’ rally in Kiambu. Be involved prayerfully.

We at ACMI greatly appreciate all your support.

Stay blessed.

Changing the World, One Child at a Time

Bishop Mulandi has a burden for orphaned children especially due to HIV/AIDS. Operation Hope program under ACMI caters for the needs of such children. He has also put up a home, an orphanage for the very needy cases. over the school Holidays, usually, April, August and December we hold camps for these children to mentor them and love on them.

This April, the camp was in Kibwezi, in Makueni county towards the East of the country. We had 98 children in attendance with about 10 of them coming to Christ during the camp that lasted 4 days. The children were taught, encouraged, they played and had a time of their lives. At the end, the outstanding children in discipline, school performance, best improved e.t.c. were given awards. We also held a meeting for the guardians, and a revival meeting. Thank you our sponsors, partners and friends, for holding our hand this far. We appreciate.

While there, we stumbled upon a family of 10, through the local county administration,  children living with the great grandmother and her granddaughter who is mad and is the mother of 7 of these children. the children are between the age of 5 months to 12 years. The 2 elder children are sponsored in school by the headteacher the rest don’t attend school since they cannot afford. We are currently looking for sponsors for them. If you’d like to be part of their support, one time or for a period of time, write to us at acm@missionsafrica.org and we can let you know how. What a joy to impact these little ones for they are our tomorrow.

Blessings to you and your families!

Onward We Move

we at ACMI under the leadership and guidance of Bishop Mulandi, have been recently busy with both high schools and primary schools. April however found us resting a bit as students are away for their holidays. We resume in May.

The Life Changers have been retreating for the past few days, in prayer as they seek direction, guidance, strength, favor and divine enablement to carry out their assignment.

This month however, we have a Chaplaincy training running from 19-21st in Makueni county. It is aimed at training school CU Patrons and Christian teachers so that they are able to do discipleship on the students who come to the Lord during our visits to their schools.

We also have an Interdenominational Missions Training running from 17-19th in Kitui. It is a Youth Mentorship Summit. on 21st we train ministers to Primary Schools. We covet your prayers.

Thank you for always holding our hand as we do ministry, we pray that God may richly richly bless you.

Shalom.

Christ; Reason For The Season…

Its Easter again. As we celebrate the death and resurrection of Christ, have you taken time to introduce Him to those who might not know Him or share His goodness with others?

We at ACMI continue to reach out to students in their schools. We thank God for the opportunities. Last weekend we were in Makueni County in Ngoto Boys for a weekend challenge and a rally in Kyuso Boys in mwingi County. Over 3000 students were reached while 621 of them came to Christ. Praise God!

Bringing in the Sheaves

He who continually goes forth weeping, Bearing seed for sowing, Shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, Bringing his sheaves with him. Psalm126:6

And so it has been for us in ACMI. We have been in schools taking the gospel and heading back re energized and encouraged to preach all the more. Recently we were at St. francis Girls and Kalulini boys in one weekend, that saw about 500 students com to the lord and over 2000 of them reached. The following weekend, we ere at Mbitini Girls and Gitwe girls for challenge weekends that climaxed in rallies with other schools invited.

Bishop Mulandi was ministering in Gitwe Girls where 193 students came to the Lord while the number in Mbitini Girls was about 86 students. Glory to God!

2018; The year of Nothing, if You do Nothing!

Happy new year everyone! We at ACMI are more than glad to see this year and are excited of all that is ahead., exciting or otherwise. We have been encouraged by Bishop Mulandi to put in a different kind of effort for better results this year, to work hard, so to reap all that we are looking forward to.

After the Christmas break, we have come back energised and with hope in this new year. These past weeks much has already happened. We started off with a play dubbed Heaven’s Gates, and Hell’s Flames. It was held in CCIT church, a play by CITAM who incorporated some of our staff in it, and which saw over 100 people that committed their lives to Christ after watching the play. Glory to God!

Paul and Cindy Mullet and Bishop Mullet arrived in the country with teams that are working in Journey of Hope Home’s chicken project, working on the buildings and others are in ACMI working on the office block. The team also participated in a slum visit that saw 500 ministered to and shared a meal with them, and did a school visit, and shared a meal with the 400 pupils and 8 teachers.

Pastors Daniel Poland and Dave miller and his wife Ruthanne are also in and are participating in a 4-day open air meeting every evening from Thursday. We are grateful to God for their availability and sacrifice.

Over the coming weekend, there has been organised a couples’ seminar by some of the visiting ministers in collaboration with the local ones. The street meetings end on Sunday evening.

As we covet your prayers in our programs, may our God richly bless you!

Ministering to students

Friends I’m back at it again. I realized that God had called me to the ministry of young people in the 70s. As we got into 1980s, I went into church planting, which was a good idea because now I have institutions that can take care of the people that I bring into the kingdom of God. But about 3 or 4 years ago, the Lord appeared to me. Among the things he reminded me of, is the ministry to the young people in institutions: colleges, high schools and even primary schools. As you go through the pages of this newsletter, you will feel my heartbeat as I share the gospel in weekend challenges, high school rallies, and spending time with  orphans in the orphanage that we run. God, by His Holy Spirit has rekindled that fire in me in my old age and I want to be faithful to that calling. That’s why I share with you in this newsletter. In the last couple of weeks, we’ve held big rallies in the Eastern region of Kenya. In Kasikeu, over 3000 students in attendance, 673 stood and gave their lives to Jesus Christ. In Mwingi, over 1600 students attending a rally, about 100 came to the kingdom. And the story is the same every weekend. As the students get saved in big numbers, as we walk alongside Kenya Students Christian Fellowship (KSCF), we’ve realized that the numbers are huge and they need people to disciple them, to mentor them to walk alongside them in the schools. We have therefore started a Diploma course in School Ministry Chaplaincy. We’ve spent days with high school teachers in Makueni where now we’ve started training 95 teachers. In Kitui, we are doing the same. We may have a 100 teachers in the month of June to train. These will be given tools of discipling the young in faith in their schools and walking them to maturity. I ask you and plead with you my prayer partner, my supporter in ministry to pray seriously for this work as we prepare the Kenya of tomorrow. Over the last couple of years, the Lord has led me into offices where I’ve had the privilege to meet MDs CEOs, Managers, people who are running companies and corporations and running them well. Men of faith and men of integrity. Each one of them will remind me the moment in their lives when I met them in a rally, in a weekend challenge, in a youth camp where they made a decision to follow Jesus and that made a big difference in their future and in their undertakings today. Those are some of the men and women who are behind this ministry today. As I do the same today, leading many others to the Lord today, I am looking at Kenya in the future another 10 years from now. These young men and women will be the next Bishops, Pastors, Apostles, MDs, Senators, Members of Parliament. They are in these groups that I am addressing now. I guess in 50 years from today, somebody will look back and remember our efforts in the school ministry we’re doing today. So I do ask you before you put this newsletter down, pray for me and for our ministry. Send us a letter of encouragement and support, give a financial gift to support the ministry and I can tell you this , God will bless you in the ministry of African Christian Missions International.

Bishop Mulandi.
