Kenya

It is said that unexplored are the ways of the Lord. It is an amazing story how the cooperation between the Vaasa Church and the Nakuru Church in Kenya started, and therewith the beginning of the whole work of GGWO in Kenya. A young woman from Kenya came to Vaasa to study and she found a home in the GGWO church here. Her pastor from Kenya contacted our pastor to find out about the church this girl attended in Vaasa. In such a way began the correspondence between Peter Ndungu Nganga, the Senior Pastor of the Body of Christ Ministries in Kenya and Juha Haatanen, our pastor in Vaasa at that time and the founder of the GGWO Vaasa, at the moment the Senior Pastor in our church in Helsinki. The result of the correspondence was Pastor Juha's first trip to Kenya with a small team in 2005. That visit joined the hearts of the Finnish and Kenyan christians and the expression of joined hearts has been continuing since then between GGWO churches in Finland and Body of Christ ministries in Kenya.

Since then many Finnish church members and pastors have visited Kenya. Pastor Juha Haatanen has been to Kenya five times and Pastor Peter Nganga has been to both Vaasa and Helsinki. Now there is total of five Body of Christ Ministries churches in Kenya - two in Nakuru, one in Kinangop, one in Nairobi and another one just outside of Nairobi. There is also nine churches in Kisii that are interested in a close relationship with us.
