Pastor Aggrey Watindi has come all the way from Kenya, Africa to try and raise funds for a new roof. Pastor Watindi oversees several village churches in Kenya and is in the process of building another. Along with the church, the building will also house a training facility for new pastors. The cost of building and the materials needed are very expensive in Kenya. To get an idea of how much the dollar is worth there, Kenyan workers are paid only $1 a day, compared to the salaries here in Madison. Raising funds in the U.S. would allow them to increase their building budget exponentially. Benjie Dyal, the pastor at New Home Baptist Church and Sam McGhee, a deacon at Pineland Missionary Baptist Church are partnering with Pastor Watindi to assist him with the fundraising mission. Dyal and McGhee are asking for local churches to allow the Kenyan Pastor into their churches so his testimony can be heard. Pastor Dyal said, “Anyone given the opportunity to hear Pastor Watindi speak will be powerfully blessed by his touching testimony and what God is doing for the Kenyan people.” Pastor Watindi said his work is to plant churches and train pastors in Kenya, and is asking Madisonians for their help so that he can continue God’s work. If you are interested in having Pastor Watindi speak or if you would like to donate, you can call Pastor Benjie Dyal at (850)-869-0126 or Sam McGhee at (850)-973-2436.
