Many of the Mt. Elgon Landmark Baptist Pastors gathered together for the plot survey and purchase on this foggy freezing day. Their faith is strong and they praise the Lord for what He is doing on Mt. Elgon.
If you look close enough you will see how cold they are.
The pictures below are Pastor Victor of Landmark Baptist Church at Cheptandan and His family standing in front of His new house. He is one of the five Pastors whose homes were destroyed in the latest round of violence.
New Beginnings: Sanctuaries Rebuilt
The Pictures below are of one of the largest Landmark Baptist Churches on Mt. Elgon which is located at the village of Cheptkurukuru. The top picture was taken immediately after the violence and destruction. As you can see much of the tin was been stolen from the roof and sides. Some of the structural part of the sanctuary had actually been burned. The second picture below is the same sanctuary recently rebuilt. The members of the Church are returning one by one to rebuild their lives. As I post this update, we are in the process of rebuilding the sanctuary at the Landmark Baptist Church at Cheptandan. Hope to be able to include those pictures in the next update as well. The last Church which will need to be rebuilt is the Landmark Baptist Church at Chemta. Everything was stolen at Chemta including the steel poles and trusses, wood and tin sheeting. The approximate cost to replace all of this is $4000.00. Please contact me if your Church is interested in adopting this sanctuary to help our Mt. Elgon brethren rebuild their sanctuary.
If you or your Church are looking for VBS project or just want to be a blessing to those who have lost so much, please designate special offerings, "Mt. Elgon".
Please continue to pray for our Mt. Elgon brethren who have truly experienced the trial of their faith through times of tribulation.
