An update on how God is using the generosity of North Point Ministries in Ngaamba, Kenya through the ministry of The 410 Bridge.
Ngaamba is a semi arid, hilly area with a population of around 20,000 people. It is made up of four sub-villages, which in 2009 became individual 410 Bridge communities. This shift to multiple communities allows The 410 Bridge to better
serve the specific needs of each community.
There are no significant medical facilities in this agricultural community and addressing the lack of medical care is a top priority. A large-scale water project has been underway in Ngaamba since 2008 and is transforming the area both physically and spiritually. Most of the spiritual influence in Ngaamba comes through the ministry of ten local churches. Pastors from these churches make up the Ngaamba Pastors fellowship.
The leaders from these ten churches meet on a regular basis to discuss the struggles in their community, and to work together to strategize and cast vision to help meet the needs of their people. These leaders understand why the hearts of their people are dry and hope that the partnership with The 410 Bridge will help change the hearts and attitudes of the community, and fill them with the hope of Christ.
“Try it. Come out and see what God’s going to do in your life.” These are the words of Dr. Raj Patel, a Tulsa, OK dentist and Joyce Meyer Ministries partner, who recently joined Hand of Hope as part of a medical missions outreach to Nairobi, Kenya. Hand of Hope is the missions arm of Joyce Meyer Ministries. This video captures the often heartbreaking conditions of those who live there and the efforts to provide comfort in the name of Christ by our Hand of Hope volunteers.
Team Unveiled spent their fourth month of the World Race in Bukembe, a small village just east of Bungoma. For the first week, each person chose a subject and taught 1st through 6th grade at a school for orphans and poor children of the area. The rest of the month was spent doing door-to-door ministry and preaching at churches in and around Bukembe.

This is my attempt at summarizing the scenes and message that I experienced while single-handedly shooting a documentary in the mountains of North Pokot, in Kenya. I was following two missionaries, Rick Strickland and Tim Sheafer, as they worked to tell the unreached people in that region about Christ. By "unreached", I don't just mean that they hadn't heard of Jesus. I mean that, to the best of our knowledge, we were the first white people they had seen. Talk about an experience! They were always so generous, hard-working (the women, at least. Haha), and really a beautiful people. Their worship was so sincere and passionate. It's my honor to be able to tell their story. :)
Of course, a 3 1/2 minute video cannot do justice to the whole trip, but until the project is completely finished, this will have to do! Please consider supporting Rick's ministry in North Pokot. For more info, visit pokotnow.com
