Self-reliance In the Orthodox Church of Kenya.
By The grace of God and his mercy. I met with Our Beloved Bishop HG Athanasius Akunda of Kisumu Kenya,to discuss several issues among them mission development in education and philanthropy. Several issues of progress arose. We hope and pray that the blessings of our Lord shall poor unto the Kenyan church and result in great development and massive evangelism and conversions. pray for us all.
The church is facing major challenges especially spiritual with the greatest need being establishment of monasteries, convents primary,secondary and tertiary schools in the church. Also a major concern is self sustenance of the Kenyan Church. currently the Kenyan church as a whole depends entirely 99% on donations from abroad. There is need to channel this resources into income generating activities to ensue that in future the Kenya Church can have and generate local resources to cater for her needs.
