What we do

The year was 1973, a dictatorial regime in the neighboring nation of Uganda drove out USA and other national missionaries from its land. Among them was a team that fled to Kenya and helped establish  The  LIFE  Ministry  Kenya.  Thus  a  ministry  of  Campus Crusade for Christ International was born 10 years after the East Africa’s regional hub’s independence. The LIFE Ministry Kenya can best be described presently through the lifespan of an eagle that has to make hard decision in its 40’s. In the last 43 years of existence, we have been on the mountaintops experiencing God’s faithfulness but have also definitely gone through the valley. We have had various seasons since our inception: Seasons of great harvests, expansions, equipping the body of Christ, sending of missionaries to over 15 countries, staff growth, major  national projects  and  great  impact  in  Kenya.  However, in-spite of all these great accomplishments and successes over the years, we have also had seasons of serious challenges, up’s and down’s, declines, human failures and painful moments especially in  the  last  10  years  now.

Partially  through  the  Eagle’s  life  (40 years), it will go through a molting process that will bring great depression. It’s a painful experience and a wilderness time, with calcium deposits on talons and beak, walking like a turkey and no strength to fly and depending on other eagles to provide food. Unfortunately,  some  eagles  will  not  receive  the  help  of  other eagles  and  will die  in  the  valley  while  others  will  regain  their strength and soar again with greater strength than ever before and climb the mountain in which they were raised on! We are currently  in  the  latter  category  of  eagles,  regaining  our  strength  and making us stronger than ever before in the Lord! As we move from 40 years to Jubilee year (50), we are soaring to victory like an eagle and we trust God (The Divine Eagle) to lift us up spiritually and on fire for Him to overcome all internal and  external  challenges  as  we  run  to  Him  for   help  through raising resources locally towards self-sustainability and contributing globally.
