Hami Imani Africa Church of one becomes hundreds.

An unlikely church of 1 becomes 💯s
How the Mustard Seed of Faith Brought a Church of One to Hundreds.

Meet Gladys, the 82 year old lady who stood the test of time to begin a church in her community. She is Masaai and lives in the interior of Kajiado, a village called Il partimaro. At first, people didn’t understand her as she started to worship under a tree all by herself.

Her own children didn’t believe it and left their mum and went to other far places to worship. She didn’t give up, and she would faithfully worship under the same tree every Sunday with her grandchildren.

Her faith was unwavering despite the resistance from the community. She stayed under that tree for a period of three years,  teaching and sharing her faith with her grandchildren.

One sweet afternoon, the Baptist church was doing an evangelism mission in the deep villages in the Masaai. They found her with her grandchildren under that tree. They were challenged, and they knew they needed to do something. The next Sunday, they brought bibles in Masaai language and joined them.

The family soon realised our mother must be doing something right, and they joined her. After that her family donated church land where they built the first church in that area.

Today, the church has more than 300 members. Faith as little as a mustard seed makes things grow to the extraordinary. She kept the faith and didn’t give up, and now generations upon generations will ride on it.

We look forward to donating audio bibles in Masaai language, and we hope you can partner with us to make it a reality.

One audio bible is $50, helping us plug in the community.

PRAYER REQUEST

DO NOT BE ANXIOUS ABOUT ANYTHING, BUT IN EVERY SITUATION, BY PRAYER AND PETITION, WITH THANKSGIVING, PRESENT YOUR REQUESTS TO GOD. ~Philippians 4:6

WE LIFT EACH OTHER UP IN PRAYER

Praying for others is a way to care for someone, no matter where they are in the world. When you pray for others, you offer them your time, thoughts, energy and piece of your heart. The power of prayer is undeniable as evidenced in blessings and physical and spiritual healing. When we pray together for one another, we strengthen one another.
