The Mosoontu Family in Africa
Samuel Mosoontu became a Christian under the missionary work of Nancy McElroy from S.A., joined the Pwani Bible Institute in 1996 and completed a Diploma in Bible & Pastoral Ministries in 2000.
After this he began full-time ministry, being involved in his local church in the rural Kajaido district, Kenya. He works amongst the indigenous Maasai people, preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. His ministry falls under the oversight of the A.I.C. Church Council, which grew out of the original Africa Inland Mission organization (A.I.M.). Over the years he has taken on responsibilities of overseeing other local churches in a wider area. In this capacity, Samuel runs Bible studies and seminars providing training for church leaders from God’s Word.
His goals are to see that believers are well-rooted in Christ, resisting false teaching, strengthened in the faith and overflowing with thankfulness. He has said “…our lives are God’s field and He uses our lives for His own glory.”
Latest News from Samuel:
In an email dated 17 April a very distressed Samuel informed us that he had been transferred to another church. The impending move came as a great shock to the Mosoontu’s. They had served this church diligently for many years and grew up in the area. A man of vision, Samuel had plans and projects for his flock which he would have liked to have brought to fruition. Worst of all, the transfer means having to get out of the house they were occupying and making new schooling arrangements for their children. Fortunately the Church has allowed them to stay on in the house until they find something suitable in another area. Left in limbo, until the new church called him to commence serving them on 2nd June, the family has felt their ever present financial burden keenly. They are indeed very grateful for the financial gift which the Missions Committee recently sent to them. Samuel has recently reported that one soul has already been saved as a result of his preaching and the flock are very eager to hear God’s word. He has also begun a radio ministry, having already preached two sermons which had been broadcast to many.
- Please pray that Samuel and his family will soon find a new house in which to live. Pray that they find suitable schooling for their children and that the relocating process will be less painful than anticipated.
- Pray that Samuel will soon form relationships with his new church and they will soon find their bearing and establish a regular routine to his to his ministry.
