Vision

 

 


 

What if you could inspire pastors, teachers, and leaders to be empowered with the Word of God? What impact on the world would you have by influencing pastors, teachers, and leaders who work in third world countries? How would this affect the lives of the under resourced individuals they influence?

I empower people to connect to their deepest passion and strengthen their relationship with God by teaching them how to clarify and interpret the Word of God. 

I visited Nairobi, Kenya in October 2012, Jan/Feb of 2013, January 2015, and February 2016, each time conducting a professional development workshop for the instructors of Ingrid Education Centre, founded and directed by Douglas Monene. The school is a community based organization that provides education to needy and vulnerable children in the Matopeni Quarry slum area, where parents make 27 USD a month crushing rock for a living and schooling costs 15 USD a month.

Teaching the 200 underprivileged and orphaned children of Ingrid are instructors who are paid about one-fourth of the standard salary for teachers in Nairobi. Having taught English as a Second Language (ESL) for fifteen years, I was truly impressed by the quality of the children’s English in spite of no textbooks, poor teaching materials, and the use of a primitive chalkboard and piece of chalk for classroom instruction. Motivated by their faith, these teachers have captured the vision that Douglas has instilled in them, desiring to operate from a scriptural perspective.

The main instruction manual used in all the workshops was the Word of God! Proceeding to clarify and interpret God’s Word in relationship with our thinking, each workshop highlighted a different focus in regards to their thoughts, sufficiency, and prayer,  encouraging and uplifting them to feel more valued because of their work with the children of Ingrid.

Having completed my last four year’s work with Ingrid Education Centre, I have been invited by Reverend Sammy Ongondo to return to Kenya in November/December 2016 and speak in five regions of the country on leadership, integrity, and prayer. What I desire to do is the following:

  • Travel to Kenya four times a year
  • Provide Train the Trainer instruction to pastors and leaders in five regions of Kenya:
    • Nairobi
    • Nakuru
    • Kisii
    • West Kenya
    • Maasai Mara
  • Create and deliver a Training program on the following topics:
    • Integrity
    • Leadership
    • Prayer
  • Support other speakers to travel with me and provide training to the women of Kenya on women’s issues
  • Provide laptops for all Ingrid’s teachers and administrative staff (delivered six laptops in January 2015)
  • Provide prepubescent training and feminine care products (delivered February 2016)

Endeavoring to fulfill my vision, I sought for a way to develop income that would sustain traveling to Kenya often, create flexibility, and provide a more holistic approach to my lifestyle, so that I could  support believers in their work. Creating this website, services, and other products is a result of my desire to clarify and  interpret God’s Word to those who are eager to find success in completing the mission God put them on this earth to fulfill. I want to help individuals see themselves in the light of scripture and show them how to use the Word of God to become self-sufficient in overcoming obstacles they encounter in their environment advancing their life purpose exponentially.

Specifically, I see the benefits of my work as follows:

  • Providing professional development to pastors, leaders, and teachers who may not otherwise have that opportunity, the ability to progress in their education and empower others
  • Creating friendships among leaders in all parts of Kenya
  • Instilling in pastors, leaders, and teachers:
    • a new sense of self
    • increased self esteem
    • new sense of who they are and their place in the world
    • the ability to learn to dream and implement their dreams
    • a deeper understanding of the Word of God
    • a more meaningful relationship with God
  • Developing integrity and leadership in pastors, leaders, and teachers who participate in the conferences
  • Cultivating autonomy by inspiring a collaborative learning environment
