THE PURPOSE

Why Gospel Safari exists

The purpose of Gospel Safari is to create discipleship opportunities for Kenyan local churches in public and private schools in Kenya and to instill in believers worldwide a burden for reaching others with the gospel.

“Teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always,
even to the end of the age.”

MATTHEW 28:20

“Teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

MATTHEW 28:20

1. Prayer

Prayer is often viewed as a precursor to ministry. However, that isn’t the Bible’s portrayal of prayer. Prayer is ministry. It is core to the success of any ministry endeavor. Here are some thoughts on prayer:

1. Prayer is the right way to start. If you are not praying about Gospel Safari, it is doubtful you will come. If you start in prayer but do not continue in prayer, it is doubtful you will truly succeed.
2. Prayer preserves the mission. Prayer is fuel for ministry.
3. Prayer purifies the motive.
4. Prayer brings God’s blessing.
5. Prayer is how you call for protection. Call repeatedly. We are waging war.
6. Prayer is powerful when done by the righteous. Holy prayer is the most effective type of prayer.
7. Prayer is a valuable spiritual commodity for ministry. Raise lots of it. Do whatever you can to get more prayer.
8. Prayer invites an omnipotent, omniscient God to work through you.

2. Advice

One of the most dangerous and foolish things you can do is remain in a proverbial echo chamber of counsel. People who represent themselves in the court of law without outside counsel usually lose. People that are not in the habit of getting advise from others who are older, wiser, and in positions of spiritual authority over them, tend to make a lot of mistakes that could have been avoided. Here are some of the benefits of consulting others:

1. It gives you another perspective on your decision.
2. It will prevent you from doing something that could be damaging.
3. It brings safety. This is an assurance that you are doing the right thing.
4. It allows God to speak through other godly people and verify His leading.
5. It begins to make potential sponsors and prayer warriors aware of what you are praying about doing.

Search God’s Word for His desire in the area of missions trip. What does God have to say? Consult godly people that care and will pray. Consult those who are older and have been on a missions trip before. And pray that God would speak through the counsel.

3. Fundraising

Money is often the reason people do or do not commit to a mission trips. Money is often the 2nd biggest mental barrier for people coming on a Gospel Safari. In our experience and more importantly, according to God’s Word, He always provides. God never invites you to partake in ministry without providing a way to pay for it. Do not let money get in the way of ministry.

If you are interested in coming and you can more than pay for it on your own, then great! You may even want to sponsor a few others to come with you.

If you are interested in coming and cannot afford it on your own, there are a few steps you can take:

4. Application

While it is our desire to see as many come as possible, we would be foolish if we did not stipulate the parameters for those coming. You must be older than 10  years of age. Kids must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. You should be in reasonably good health. There is little enforcing of the disability act in Kenya unfortunately. Wheel chair access is not possible many places. You need to be part of a church of like faith and practice. And most importantly you need to be a believer of the gospel of the New Testament.

5. Logistics

Once you have begun praying, have consulted your pastor and other godly prayer warriors, and secured your funding ($1500-1700 depending on how long you are staying and whether or not you are going on an animal safari), it is time to arrange the logistics of the trip.

We want to help you through the logistics. We know that this is new and foreign to many of you. That is why we have done the research for you. As always, if something is not working or if you have any questions, please contact us. We are here to help you every step of the way:

6. Packing

In addition to what you need to bring, there are some things that you should not bring. Please do not bring those things. Pack a carry on with a set of clothes just in case your checked luggage gets lost. There are many things you will need that are better to obtain in Kenya. Expensive jewelry should be left behind. Leave room in your bag for souvenirs. Weight your bag to make sure that you are under 50 lbs. If you have any questions on concerns, email us @info@kbmgo.org.

8. Safari

It is always helpful to have an idea of what to expect before you go somewhere new. We cannot take the time here to tell you every last thing about Kenya. But we can give you an idea of what it will be like to go on a gospel safari. What will your schedule be like? Where will you stay? What will you eat? And how can you be ready?

When you get here, you will be very tired and jet lagged. We try to help you beat jet lag by running you hard the first day so you do not fall asleep till the sun has fallen. Here are somethings you will do one the first day:
