On the Rooted in Jesus website you will also find:

  • An encouraging report from the team which went last month to the Diocese of Kericho in Kenya. After a slow start to Rooted in Jesus in this young and poorly resourced diocese, team leader Tim Grew reports that at this second conference, led by a team from Trinity Cheltenham, ‘there was a strong sense of engagement, and high levels of participation, interest, involvement throughout’, and one man was particularly touched: ‘There was one lay leader, Frances from Narok who was so enthusiastic about the whole thing that it kept him awake on return to his town that Friday night. And at 2am in the morning he felt the Lord prompt him to go to the church (ACK St Luke’s) where they have an all night prayer meeting every Friday. He spent from 3am to 6am in utterly abandoned joy and laughter! He is now the area coordinator for RinJ.’ To read Tim’s report click here
  • We have also had some feedback from Joyce Asaba, Mission Coordinator in the Diocese of Bunyoro Kitara in Uganda: “I am glad to inform you that I have now received reports from all the Parishes of Kagadi Archdeaconry. In Nyankoma Parish, Kagadi Archdeaconry, 12 people have accepted Christ as their Lord and Savior as a result of RINJ, two couples have been wedded. In all parishes members of RINJ have started healing ministry in their respective Churches, many members have learned to apply the word of God in their prayers and their lives have been changed. Glory goes to God!”
  • Fr Robert Sihubwa, the Diocesan Youth Pastor & Provincial Coordinator in the Diocese of Lusaka writes: “Children’s ministry has been a major focus in 2013. We trained 51 Teachers in Lusaka, 18 in Southern Archdeaconry in Level one training covering; Child development, Child evangelism, Lesson planning and class management. We have further trained 8 Trainers who will go round the Diocese in 2014 to conduct Level 1 training in the most rural areas. We managed to run Rooted in Jesus course for children at 9 congregations and we hope to scale up in the coming year.”
