Missionaries we support
Indigenous Turkana, Kenya Missionary-Pastors
Turkana County, NW Kenya
Share International was birthed in 1988 when Sammy Murimi, a Kenyan, felt a distinct call from God to devote his life to bring the gospel to the unreached, semi-nomadic tribe within his home country: the Turkana. After receiving a formal theological education, Share was officially started in 1997, with Sammy's first actual trip to the desert of northwest Kenya. Since then, by God's grace and power, over 500 churches have been planted, and now the pastors of this once unreached tribe of a million people are embarking on bringing the gospel to a neighboring unreached tribe called the Toposa, across the border into South Sudan. Our church has had the privilege of sending many short-term teams to Turkanaland over the years, to work alongside these dear brothers and sisters in their evangelistic and discipleship efforts.

Memduh and Suna work in radio and chat room ministries working to reach out to the Turkish-speaking Muslims around the world. They help direct seekers to churches and give answers to those who are searching. The radio and chat room ministry is a great way to reach those who have never heard the Gospel. The chat room is a safe place for Muslims to voice their questions.
