A strategic lighthouse for the Gospel

Kenya sits at the base of the Muslim-dense nations which make up the ‘Horn of Africa,’ making it a strategic lighthouse for the Gospel across eastern Africa.

There are 42 linguistically distinct tribes across Kenya, some of which are only now about to receive the complete Bible in their own language for the first time. Many homes in the region where FMI’s partners serve have no access to electricity or running water, and conditions can best be described as “developing.”

While Kenya is a predominantly Christian nation (the Joshua Project notes that 48% of the population considers itself evangelical Christian), nominalism is rampant.
