Disciplers Ministry

Our Work

And great crowds came to him, bringing with them the lame, the blind, the crippled, the mute, and many others, and they put them at his feet, and he healed them, so that the crowd wondered, when they saw the mute speaking, the crippled healthy, the lame walking, and the blind seeing. And they glorified the God of Israel.

Matthew 15:30-31

The disciplers ministry, pioneered by the BethanyKids at Kijabe Hospital chaplain, Mercy, has grown to over 400 ladies in the past few years. These ladies come from all across Kenya and make it their mission to seek out and help children who are hidden in their homes and their parents who, in the face of extreme poverty and lack of knowledge about disabilities, have nowhere to turn for help. The disciplers also evangelize all they meet, sharing God’s love with them.

Mercy is happy that the ministry is getting to the different and sometimes unreached parts of Kenya. As the number of disciples increases, we learn about more children who need surgery.  And this increases the number of people who get to hear the saving gospel of Jesus and experience his hands of healing.

According to Chaplain Mercy, “So far God has brought many to Himself through this ministry. I can only give all the Glory to God who is the head of every activity….Let us also thank and celebrate what God has done for these many souls that have come to Jesus since 2005. Let us pray that God will keep all these saved people for His glory so that they can also tell others about the saving Love of our Savior….May God also bless our medical team doctors and nurses and all those that are involved in gathering many people for medical reasons. [Our medical ministry] gives the spiritual ministry the opportunities to share God’s word of love and salvation. This is a true way of pointing people to the saving power of Jesus Christ.”
