SPREAD TRUTH MISSION WEEK 2024.



Spreading love, kindness and hope. This is what fuels our commitment to serve all the people we interact with in the communities we visit. More so, our growing desire to see everyone reached with the Gospel keeps us grounded. This year we conducted the annual Spread Truth mega mission week that brings together both Spread Truth US and Africa team, for a week-long of community outreaches and Gospel sharing from 23rd February to 3rd March, 2024. The mission week, that had 8,343 people reached, was impactful, joyful and most importantly, we saw the love of Christ manifesting all through! We did Sports (Basketball and Football Tournament), School Outreaches, Pastors' Training, Anti-FGM Initiative and Free Medical Camp and Nutritional Support. All this was possible with the collaboration with out various partners, whom we acknowledge and appreciate.



The mission week kicked off with an action-packed sports outreach through a Basketball and Football Tournament at the Maasai National Polytechnic, whom we had partnered with. The tournament was particularly geared towards addressing and promoting mental health wellness among the youth. This also provided an avenue for evangelism (15 got saved)! The games were nothing short of heated and rigorous. Spread Truth Tigers emerged winners for the Basketball game, men's category. The Maasai National Polytechnic men's football team took the cup too! For the women's category, the polytechnic came first for both Basketball and Football games!



We visited Gathirimu Girls High School, Havilla Children’s Home, AIC Girls Kajiado, Sajiloni Girls High school, Enkorika Boys, Nkuseron Primary, Eiti Primary, Sajiloni Primary, Impirro and Kajiado Township. We also got to hear the stories of those we have supported and those who have gone through our FGM Psychosocial Support Curriculum at AIC Girls and Sajiloni girls. From the school ministry, 362 salvations were recorded. Praise be to God.



At Spread Truth we are very intentional about ensuring that pastors and church leaders benefit from proper training that will empower them more in the ministry and leading the church. We are so grateful to Pastor Will Lohnes who conducted a pastors training on Hermeneutics for pastors from Eiti held at Olosaruni Baptist Church.



For the Anti-FGM Initiative, we met with Ex-cutters at Illaramatak Community Concerns Centre. The Ex-cutters are the men and women who formerly supported FGM by forcefully cutting girls, but abandoned the retrogressive act and are now advocates of fighting to end FGM. At the center, the women are empowered to venture in activities with economic benefits such as sowing and bead work. They now have a powerful mantra, “CUT THE GARMENT, NOT THE GIRL!” We also did a food distribution at the center and supported their beadwork by purchasing from them.



Following last year’s camp, the need for free medical services for the underprivileged became apparent in our interactions in Kajiado. This informed this year’s 2nd camp. The FREE MEDICAL CAMP at Eiti in Kajiado County was the culmination of the mission week. We held a 3-days camp and 3,259 people got access to free medical services and nutritional support. We also evangelized and shared the Gospel at the Camp! The camp was officially opened by the Deputy Governor of the County Government of Kajiado, Honorable Martin Moshisho, who was accompanied by county officials and leaders. Among the free medical services offered were, cervical and breast cancer screening, dental services (extractions), minor surgeries (tumors removal), ophthalmological services (cataract surgeries), lab services, general outpatient consultation and counseling.





We are so grateful for the volunteer team of 34 medics from Hope Citadel Foundation who tirelessly worked to attend to all the patients with much commitment, dedication, love and compassion. We also acknowledge the Olosaruni Baptist Church for their dedication and a shout-out to all our partners for the collaboration towards the betterment of the Eiti community.



1 Peter 4:10-11- “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.”
