Ministry History: God’s call on Deborah’s life remains unchanged as she continues to minister among the Turkana people in Loima Location, North Western Kenyan. Her mission and vision are mandated in Mark 16:15-20 and Matthew 25:35-40.
The distance between Kenya’s capital city, Nairobi to Eldoret to Namoruputh in Loima, remains unchanged. However, instead of 2 or 3 days by road, there are commercial flights to Lodwar. The road trip between Lodwar to Namoruputh remains adventurous and exciting with rustic, rugged terrain and splendid desert beauty displaying God’s awesome creation and glory. The scorching temperatures remain the same.
