Mission

JACK BELL

 

Hello! My name is Jack Bell and I am serving God as a missionary in Kenya.
 I first went to Kenya in 2010 and since then I have been on multiple trips there, with God giving me a heart to serve him amongst the poor and the unreached in Kenya.  In my ministry there, I have been particularly involved in preaching and teaching within churches, discipling young people, and evangelism.
In Kenya, I am serving God as a missionary with Youth With a Mission (YWAM) at their mission base in Athi River, in participating in their DTS (discipleship training school) for the next six months. During this time I am expecting to grow in my faith and see God move in power amongst the unreached and the poor. 
I value your prayers for my ministry in Kenya, that God will use my work there to further his kingdom and to make disciples in Christ. If you would like to know more about my work in Kenya or want to be involved in supporting me, then please email me at jackbell11@hotmail.co.uk.
BELOW IS THE JULY UPDATE ALONG WITH A VIDEO

Dear friends, it’s such a blessing to be able to update you again about my ministry in Kenya. Here is some of what I have been doing:

Last week of lectures – our theme for the last week was discipling nations. We learnt about missions in Kenya and globally. For me it was inspiring to hear about the great missionaries who have gone before me, and again stirred up my passion to reach the unreached in Kenya.

Ministry with Rwanda team – a team visited from YWAM Rwanda for one week to do ministry with us. We did door to door ministry and I also preached at an open air meeting and in church.

Outreach in Kisumu – we have started the outreach phase of our Discipleship Training School and we are in Kisumu on mission for one month. The first week we were at Free Pentecostal Fellowship Kenya. We did door to door evangelism, church ministry, and ministry with children. We also received evangelism training on reaching Muslims.
The second week was at a church called the world prayer centre Kisumu. We did door to door ministry, evening revival meetings, school ministry where we shared Bible stories and songs with the children, and church ministry.

The coming weeks – we have two more weeks of ministry in Kisumu, working in partnership with different churches. We then are back at YWAM Athi River for one week for a medical camp. From there we go to Northern Kenya to a place called Marsabit, where we will be reaching the unreached people, particularly the Borano people who are primarily Muslims. We then go to a place called West Pokot where we will be doing Bible teaching to youths, which is again an unreached place.

Prayer requests – before we left the mission base we had a problem with our bore hole for water, which is expensive to fix or replace – pray for a solution. Pray for more salvations, and God to reveal himself in power. Pray for continued health and protection. Pray particularly for my time in Marsabit as I feel called to reach these unreached people.

Testimonies – in our ministry with the Rwandan team a lady with seizures was healed and able to walk again. This week a Muslim came to faith in Jesus alongside 3 other salvations on Wednesday, and one man saved on Friday. Over the past two weeks we have seen over 10 salvations.

Thank you for your prayers. God is so faithful every day. I pray you are encouraged by my testimonies and you know how much Jesus loves you. Please do get in touch if you want to know more about what I’ve been doing.

In Christ,
Jack Bell
