In the summer of 2005 Tenges, a young Maasai warrior, knelt down on a construction site at Orkung'u, Kenya. The building under construction was a new church...and Tenges knelt to pray.
The village he lives in is Jipe Orkung’u, which means "High Ground" in Maasai. Tenges had just completed the Eunoto Ceremony moving from a boy to a warrior in the Maasai culture. Raised as an Animist, with a Catholic influence, Tenges had no real understanding of who Jesus Christ was...until he heard me talking to a group of laborers building the new howFar Ministries church in his village.
Tenges stood in the shade, just outside of our circle, and listened. After the others had returned to work the young warrior approached and said, "I want Jesus Christ".
There next to the new church, Tenges knelt, we laid hands on him and prayed with him - and he became a follower of Jesus Christ. Over the years Tenges has had his struggles but he has continued to move closer and closer to his Savior.
Today Tenges is Pastor Jacob Tenges Meijo. He is preaching the same gospel message he heard from me...and many are coming to Christ!
Where are your donations going? They are going to bring young men like Tenges to Christ and these young men are faithfully serving the Savior who came to rescue them.
"Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for our sins so that He might rescue us from this present evil age according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be glory forevermore." Galatians 1:3-5, (NASB)
