Kwale mission station

The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. . . They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of His splendor. Isaiah 61:1 – 3

Our

Story

Looking Back

Kwale Mission Station is the second Mission Station of Nairobi Baptist Church, and is coordinated and supported from the Global Missions and Outreach Office. The Church adopted, the Digo Community in 2008, an unreached people group in Kwale. A medical clinic was set up in response to the great need for healthcare in the community. Previously, the residents were not well served with a medical facility resulting to most patients being taken to hospital only when critically ill, which led to high motality rate, especially among children. The community named the clinic ‘Mwangaza’ which means light. We praise God for allowing us to be a shining light for the community over the past years.  The Clinic, ‘Dima Mwangaza Clinic’, was constructed in collaboration with local and international partners, on land that was donated by the community. 

Looking Foward

In the course of serving the community, it has become clear that maternal health care needs to be enhanced in the area. The church has therefore purchased an adjacent parcel of land for construction of a maternity ward. It has been a privilege to serve this community and look forward to the light of Jesus Christ shining brighter and brighter among the residents.

Present

Our aim is to break the cycle of poverty, build capacity and grow relationships with the residents through the following pillars:

01/Health Care

The commonly treated diseases are: hypertension, upper respiratory tract infections, skin diseases, typhoid, amoeba, urinary tract infections and jigger infestation. Family planning difficulties are also common. The Church has employed a qualified nurse who attends to an average of sixty to eighty (60-80) patients per day. She also oversees the public health initiatives including anti-jigger campaign, mother/child wellness and hygiene & nutrition.

02/Training

The mission is involved in uplifting the literacy level of the community on all fronts including: involvement with the primary schools to improve performance, holiday tuition, some children have been incorporated in the Bapo Scholars (education sponsorship) program of the church; we are involved in training pastors of the local churches in theology and their co-workers in ministry skills; we have also been engaged in trainings that would enhance economic empowerment, such as agriculture.

03/Youth Empowerment

In addition to academic and economic empowerment, we are involved in Sports, mainly football, which has become the most impactful for the youth in the community and creates opportunity for friendship evangelism and discipleship.
