Kenya celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of its independence in 2013. Kenya has the largest economy in East Africa. The violence that followed the 2007 national elections was a very troubling event for those who love Kenya, especially given the nation's importance. The national elections of 2013, however, marked a return to the peaceful transition of government, and most Kenyans are looking forward to the future with confidence.

ECLEA personnel did their first teaching in Kenya in June 2007. We returned in August of that year. Since that time, ECLEA has been very active throughout Kenya. Most importantly, we have established a good and growing inter-denominational and inter-tribal ECLEA-Kenya committee of pastor-teachers. The fact that we insist on being inter-tribal is particularly important in Kenya which has 42 tribes and where, although sometimes unspoken, tribalism is an important issue. The ECLEA-Kenya team has been the most active of all the East African ECLEA teams in conducting all-African church leader trainings.

January 2020. Ernest Mwilitsa and I had good times teaching Biblical Eschatology to our class last week. I mean ECLEA in Conjunction with NPBC class. You are the one who came up with this idea and in fact it is working. ECLEA is making a great impact as you can see below.

We were able to do our three AA conferences and I can confirm that though we did it in times of floods and landslide in some parts the meetings were a success.

February 2020. We thank God for the new year as Bsp Peter Mwangi & I were blessed to do a training last week.
#2. This part of strange doctrines had a substantial debate with few false teachers in our day mentioned by name particularly in Kenya and we warned ourselves against such.
#3. Women in ministry and their dressing was another hot subject. Though some ministries don't recognize women in ministry, we established that Paul is not forbidding. in addition, they should dress modestly with a pure attitude being careful not to draw too much attention to themselves rather than to God.
#4. A question was asked if marriage between a (spiritual) brother & sister from the same church is forbidden as INCEST as the author SEEMS to suggest by using the words "In all purity." Paul includes this important phrase at the end of
Although we addressed it from the author's illustration of incest that from the context it is NOT INCEST.

Last week on Monday 9 & Tuesday 10 March 2020 we had our second training this year in Nairobi Region of Kenya ECLEA trainings on THE CHURCH.
It was our first meeting to be attended by less than 10 people - they were 8 in number. Perhaps this was due to the fear of Covid-19 among other minor factors.
However, we had a very powerful meeting. Most of the participants were unable to define church but after the training, their perspectives were changed & they saw the church as it should be - the body of Christ & not a building!
The other thought that stood out most was that we have a visible & invisible church.
The interesting part of it which led the participants to think deeply was the lying bare the fact that Jesus knows those who belong to the invisible church.
As an illustration, it was said that it is possible to be a member of a local church & not so with invisible church.
On the Lord's Supper, the class appreciated the idea that what is used are elements & that they don't turn into real body & blood of Jesus.
