Miracle Mission Kenya
On November 6-13, 2018 Destiny Encounters will be embarking on its greatest Miracle Mission to date.
This time to the nation of Kenya, where we will be focusing on a four-day Miracle Gospel Crusade in the capital city of Nairobi. The word Nairobi derives from a water hole known in Maasai (an Eastern Nilotic language) as Enkare Nyirobi, which means "cool waters." Nairobi, which was once a swamp area, was founded in 1899 and was first a railway camp for the Uganda Railway.
The city became Kenya’s capital, which was Mombasa initially, and it also became the capital of the British East Africa Protectorate in 1905. With the spread of plagues in the early 1900's, the town was burnt down and had to be rebuilt. Having a railroad system helped it to have drastic growth, becoming the second largest city in Kenya behind Mombasa. This beautiful city now has a population of three million plus; waiting to hear the authentic gospel of Jesus Christ.
Situated on the Nairobi River, the city is not only the largest and fastest growing city in Kenya, but one of the largest in Africa. Sadly at this time nearly 51% of the nations population lives in absolute poverty and with one of the highest population growth rates in the world this puts enormous pressure on infrastructure and resources in the country as everyone seeks to eke out a living. Since the mid 1980's the scorch of HIV/AIDS has dealt a heavy blow to the nation. HIV/AIDS prevalence rates are highest among youthful middle aged Kenyans who comprise the most productive segment of the population.
According to the World Health Organization there is only 1 doctor and 12 nurses or midwives per 10,000 people in Kenya. This shortage of medical profession is a severe problem for the nation as many live sick and disease prone with no hope of recovery, death is a constant reality. While many see Kenya as a predominantly Christian nation, in recent years things have began to change. According to Transparency International, Kenya is one of the most corrupt countries in the world. With a large portion of government money intended for social and development spending ending up in private people's pockets. Since the recent election results violence has broken out across the country and many are living in fear of a potential genocide.
Christians are also living in constant threat of persecution from those of the Islamic religion. In December 2015, two passengers on a bus were killed when al-Shabaab militants boarded and separated Christians for execution. In January 2016, five policeman who were Christians and three Christian men were murdered in their homes in the Lamu area. During the World Watch List 2017 reporting period, more than 30 Christians were killed at the hands of Islamist extremists. The nation is in desperate need of the gospel at this time in history.
With Prophet Charlie's recent revelation concerning a double Jubilee for the country we know that it is time to invade with a great gospel campaign. As many of you know the Prophet of God accurately predicted the reelection of President Kenyatta not once, but twice before the first vote was ever taken in August of last year. The accuracy of this prophetic word went viral as hundreds of thousands saw it come to pass, including governmental heads of state.
It is by divine direction at this time that Destiny Encounters has set its sights to bring the saving, healing, power of Jesus Christ to the capital city of Nairobi this fall. In 2018, we are believing for an even greater harvest of souls than we have ever seen before and your tax-deductible, online donation will help us bring what the nation of Kenya desperately needs at this time, Jesus Christ.
Here are some bullet point facts to explain and illuminate the pressing issues in Kenya:
- About half of the population of Kenya lives in Absolute poverty. Kenya is currently ranked the Sixth Poorest country in Africa .
- Kenya has one of the highest rates of population growth.
Kenya’s population has nearly tripled in the last 35 years, from 16.3 million in 1980 to 47 million today.
- There are not many physicians in Kenya.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there is only one doctor and 12 nurses or midwives per 10,000 people in Kenya. This shortage of medical professionals is a severe problem for the nation, although major public health interventions have helped to reduce the mortality rate, such as those taken with HIV/AIDS as well as many waterborne illnesses.
About 1.6 million Kenyans are living with HIV An estimated 1.6 million people, or roughly four per cent of the population, are living with HIV in Kenya. Every year an average of 89,000 adults and about 11,000 children in Kenya are infected with HIV.
- Christians are also living in constant threat of persecution from those of the Islamic religion. During the World Watch List 2017 reporting period, more than 30 Christians were killed at the hands of Islamist extremists.
- According to Transparency International, Kenya is one of the most corrupt countries in the world. With a large portion of government money intended for social and development spending ending up in private people's pockets.
These few facts can be quite staggering for anyone grasp. The overwhelming situation that the people of this nation are facing at this times calls for a Kingdom Response and this is why we are going to the front lines. An open door for evangelism and a massive harvest of souls stands before us and we simply cannot do it without your help. Please consider sowing a significant financial seed to partner in the harvest of Nairobi, Kenya!
