Ben Ndiema September Report
Dear IMD Praying partners
I am very happy in the Lord through you. This is verification of the ministry given by our master Jesus Christ.
The Lord blessed me with the ministry of Church planting encouraging leaders and assembling and gathering leaders of different places to come together, like Barnabas who brought Paul to Peter in the Bible.
In this case, by 2006 to 2008 during hard times of conflict of Ndorobo and Soi tribes over the land issue I planted six churches in Mt.Elgon, ordained the pastors and church leaders to work in these churches. By 2008 I was in charge of 30 Ndorobo pastors assembled them and made them to meet with the 30 Soi pastors. Since Ndorobo and Soi people had conflicts over the land issue so they could not meet from 2006 September. They were like Samaritans and Jesus. By 2009, went to Uganda and gathered 25 pastors of Kenya in the side Mt.Elgon. I have assembled them twice last year. Now we are going with some pastors this September to Uganda for a 10 days conference under Koos Basson respectively.
I also have a vision of reaching to Southern Sudan, Tanzania, Ethiopia and other places of the world.
God bless you
under the feet of Jesus

Ben Ndiema March 2013 Report
Let me inform you how we are getting on in the mountain.
1.At the end of last year we had the Bible written in Okiek/Dorobo language both the old and new testament that was completed last year and came out last year and its now being used in the Church so if you come we will be reading the Bible on our own language
2.The government has given us five registered primary
3.We have also been given three hospitals across the area of 84000 acres of land
4.Three roads are to be worked on after elections to the mountain by the government.
5. Electricity poles were being measured along the road last week from Kapsokwony The District Headquarters to the foot of Mount Elgon where they want to put up a guest house and government hotels .This means that by September last year was the year of our freedom after total pressure and
Although last year this people had conflicts with the government in which some few potatoes planted by almost every person, the elephants came and devastated all of them leaving almost every home with no food .This aroused the people to kill one elephant and the government was almost to evict the people out of the land and on the process international
So thank you for your prayers and thank you for supporting me in IMD.
I wish you the best in the vineyard of I'm(God).

Window of Opportunity
Our focus here is on engaging the least reached people groups, working in partnership with a local pastor in Eldoret (Western Kenya). After our initial conference in Eldoret in 2004, we will engage 3 least reached people groups (Chamos, Pakot, and Sabaot) by having leadership conferences in their areas in September 2005, north west of Kenya - near Mt Elgon, Lake Baringo & Omogoro, near the town of Busia, on the Uganda border. This is expected to be a step in the direction of identifying and partnering for 2 to 5 years with key leaders in each people group for the purpose of church planting.
We are also in the process of having the Train & Multiply® materials translated into Keswahili.
