And Just Like That… We Have a Church!

In all of life there has never been a church on Mt. Elgon in Kapchorwa. The Christians who wanted to go to a church had to walk to the nearest small church in another town. This was a bit of a walk and not very convenient, but they did it for years.

We knew that as the community grew and people were coming together because of parent meetings and community gatherings we needed a place to meet & worship.

We had built a schoolhouse but were always needing more space. Each month more and more children came to our school to learn. We were growing faster than we could accommodate. We had to be practical and it was decided to combine our resources and build a double size classroom and use it as our church on Sundays.

At Christmas time 2021, the ground was cleared and the building began with a prayer and lots of praise.

WE WERE BUILDING GOD’S HOUSE! We call it Father’s Kingdom Ministries Community Church Moyok. Meetings were held to appoint leaders and deacons and church service planning was beginning. The excitement was growing and even here back home I knew this was going to be something monumental and very special. Many people were praying that God would bring people together to worship & learn about our Heavenly Father & grow in Him. .

The community watched it go up and on December 4th 2021, just a few weeks before Christmas everyone stood outside and they sang, and cheered and dedicated it to God and the doors were opened. They knew God was going to do wonders! The congregation was about 50 people for that 1st service, even some of the Muslims came to worship with them! Each Sunday the numbers are swelling and growing and the Hymns and praise music sung from the little Moyok church ring loud & minister to and bless the folks near & far and soon hopefully they too will wonder in through the doors of Gods house to see what it’s all about. Thank you Lord!

Week by week improvements & adjustments were made, a sound system was purchased, podium and communion table was made, the choir was developed, the gifts and talents of the people were used and God is doing all the rest, touching hearts and bringing hope and healing to a beautiful people, His children.

Godwill Ministries sent funds to provide a celebration after the first Sunday church service. They ate and drank and sang and danced & celebrated in the sun our amazing Father in heaven.

Lord, bless this village and the people who live there. May they grow in you and feel your love, guidance and provision right where they are. Please Father, continue to develop, grow and nurture your church and the hearts of all those who seek you.

In the strong and mighty Name of Jesus, Amen.
