Joel and Rachel Williams and their team of Kenyan disciple-makers set out on their tour of all the new Discovery Bible Study (DBS) groups recently, and they were frankly amazed at the impact the small groups were making in their communities.
When Joel Williams, a CMF team member in Turkana, Kenya, first started training Michael Ewoi to lead disciple-making Bible studies, the local pastors had a serious question: “Why are you working with him? He is not a Christian!”
“You’re right,” replied Joel. “He’s not a Christian, and that’s why he’s exactly who we need!”
Two months after Joel and Michael began studying together, Michael began leading a local congregation that was without a pastor.
When CMF team member Joel Williams met with two Kenyan pastors about his new ministry to Turkana young people, he was expecting the heavy lifting of long conversations to convince them to join his team.
