Be a Missionary In Kenya, Africa

With a population that is over 40% evangelical Christians, Kenya has the worlds 3rd highest concentration of Christians (USA and Brazil are first and second). So, why would we send missionaries to a relatively “Christian” nation?  Two reasons, there are still numerous unreached people groups throughout Kenya that have had no chance to hear the gospel and some of the least reached areas of the earth are in proximity to Kenya.

Kenya Quick Facts

  • Total Population:  46,850,000
  • People Groups: 110

“I have been bringing in boxes of bibles into the area. It is a great joy to see people’s eyes light up when they hold their very own first bible. There is a great thirst for truth here- Praise the lord!”
