Dylan Agoye, a pastor in Kenya, has been praying for an opportunity to share the Gospel and reach the unreached in Mombasa for many years now. Dylan has always served the Lord faithfully, but it was never his intention to go into the ministry full time. While completing his Master’s degree tragedy struck his family!
His father, Michael Agoye, a full time pastor was on his way to share the Gospel with unreached communities in Kenya. He was brutally attacked and left for dead by religious extremists. After several weeks in a coma Michael finally awoke only to realise that he will never be able to walk again.
The enemy thought that he stopped the work of God, but this is simply not true.
God has called Dylan to complete the work of his father. Dylan has partnered up with Harvesters Ministries and is now training pastors all across the country, but his heart has always been to convert unbelievers to Christianity; to get the lost saved!
He knows that one person cannot change another person’s heart and that it is also impossible for a person to change a community. He knows that there is only one way to change people’s hearts and make an impact in communities – and that is the power of God!
Harvesters Ministries is truly grateful that God continues to make it possible for the ministry to plant churches in communities all across the globe. The Church is a beacon of hope. The Church shares the Gospel with people and only by hearing the true Gospel can someone be saved and changed.
Mombasa, Kenya, is one such community that desperately needs the Gospel; that desperately needs change. Although Kenya is known as a Christian country, Islam is the main religion in the Mombasa region and Christians face terrible persecution at the hands of religious extremists.
It took many years of praying and waiting patiently for prayers to be answered and for the opportunity for Harvesters Ministries to work in Mombasa. Finally, in 2019 our prayers were answered and our country leader, Dylan Agoye, was led to a phenomenal group of pastors in Mombasa. These pastors jumped at the opportunity to receive training in evangelism, discipleship and church planting. They too have been praying for a way to make an impact in the villages in their region.
Missionaries and missions organisations cannot reach the lost with the Gospel without the support of believers like you. Your prayers make it possible for missionaries to travel across the globe, share the Gospel with the lost and ensure that the Word of God truly reaches the ends of the earth. Continue to keep Dylan and his family in your prayers as they serve the Lord and build God’s Kingdom.
Please pray that the Gospel will make an impact in Mombasa. Trust the Lord that the number of believers in Mombasa will grow immensely. Ask the Lord to strengthen believers in this region. Pray that they will stand firm in their faith. Pray that they will continue to lead others to Christ, despite the terrible persecution that they face.
I am reminded of Matthew 5:16 that says, “In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”
