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.

This is my final conference report this year. I have really enjoyed the ECLEA mission to my utmost. I am a Blessed person.
ECLEA is no longer something new to church leaders who are around us, we have become Friends in terms of equipping their members together with their ministers. All our manuals have been fully embraced by all our participants, now one or more is no longer an issue.
Best regards, and have a blessed Christmas, Fredrick Njoroge

Last weekend ending Sunday 10 September we had an amazing teaching on Forgiveness and Reconciliation at Jesus Celebration Centre in Tassia in Embakassi. This meeting was perhaps one of the largest in recent times with close to 40 attendees.
It was one of the most practical this year. One of the leaders shared with me privately how she was able to forgive someone who had seriously offended her. She shared with me that during a past meeting we emphasized forgiveness and she took an initiative to forgive that person. The issue had widely affected her in various ways including not being able to think straight. After she forgave, she felt light and more focused. It was one of the most difficult decisions she has ever made in her life.
Of all the leaders who were present, they agreed that forgiveness is key especially when serving people since hurting leaders hurt others.
After the meeting I met a pastor who had also struggled with forgiveness though he was not in our meeting. He was very sick and bedridden for a whole year though doctors could not diagnose his sickness. His relatives openly and defiantly told him that they are tired of taking care for him and they are waiting for his death. He was able to forgive and God saved him miraculously from that time. He is now a very committed pastor. He plans to organize an ECLEA meeting in the near future for others to benefit.
I would say that ECLEA is playing a very pivotal role in reaching many pastors and leaders in East Africa.
Thank you, Jonathan, together with ECLEA partners for making this a reality.

I have been very successful of late in matters of conference teaching. Am hoping that the remaining two more conferences will be as successful as past one. My fourth conference this year was on 24-26/8/023. We were dealing with the book of James. The turnout was so amazing. There was a lot of engagement from the participants which made the learning easier.
Am hoping that if this continues. I confirm to you that great number of believers will be transformed.
