  27. dan wanyonyi says:

    MAP community based organisation ( Move Againist Poverty) is a Kenyan based registered public voluntary non-profit making organisation situated in Bungoma District Western Province of Kenya East Africa.

    The organisation mission is to promote and enhance the capabilities, capacities and social transformation of both individuals and communities to achieve suitable development and all these is achieved through Education, training research, networking, policy, advocacy, analysis and resource mobilisation.

    MAP as an organisation is made up of believers in the faith and are committed to support and improve the livelihood of the community through partnership, collaboration and participatory methodoligies as a means towards poverty eradication and spiritual development.

    The centre is promoting and running a church for the community, school and a microfinance institution for the “boda boda” Bicycle cyclist in the community who have no other means to earn other than cycle the bicyle to earn a living being that the Government has overlooked them and the Bank with it terms dont favour there class we thought of helping them come up not only in development but also in the knowledge about jesus christ.

    A pastor in Africa today faces a dainting prospect. This vast majority of church leaders have little or no training, no follow-up support, many live in dire poverty, witchcraft, corruption, refugees, AIDS orphans, civil conflicts and genocide they are realities of the environment most are obliged to work in. Despite this, the gospel reaches millions of suffering Africans. But once the seed of salvation are planted, who is there to water them?

    Countless churches are rife with confusion as the Gospel is corrupted by power struggles, supersition, tribal divisions, fake teaching and even violence.

    For these reasons with an aim to reach out to pastors, saints and church leaders, MAP C.B.O. decided to hold training and seminars in and without the Country. We found many of these attending tried, discouraged and stagnant in their ministry, some even at the point of abandoning their calling altogether.

    Many Pastors and church leaders attending the MAP conferences after being initially encouraged by the gospel message, realised the state of their own lives and asked for continuing help, support and spiritual direction, the team recognized an immediate need to establish a place where these pastors could come and live for 2-3 months to be restored, encouraged and equipped so that their desire for refreshing could be fulfilled as they spent time with different ministry gifts at the centre.

    Plans have been finalised to build a resource centre in Bungoma Kenya East Africa at the moment we have ten pastors from within the locality but are trusting God for resources so that our dream for reaching other pastors and even to from other countries is reached, it is our dream that through Gods mercies we are going to experiance his victory.

    Therefore on behalf of the organisation and other partners I take this opportunity to write and request your organisation to parner with us in spiritual developmet and provide us with both financial aid and technical assistance in terms of missionary,materials and any ather resource vaeble to support this vital programme.

    I hope our request will rach you and your urgency with a positive development and a future partnership in supporting MAP community based organisation.

    Thank you.

    Yours Sincerely,
    Pastor Dan Wanyonyi Nyongesa.
