Earlier this month the ACC Diocese of Kenya held its annual synod in the capital city of Nairobi. 

Bishop John Ndegwa reports that the meetings went well and a new slate of officers were elected.  New members were recieved into the diocese and Bishop announced his intent to ordain n five candidates to Holy Orders (four deacons and a priest) later this year.  The bishop has requested prayers for the new clergy and their ministry.

Bishop Ndegwa reports that the diocese is continuing its humanitarian work in Nairobi.  One of the most successful projects has been the establishment of St. Anectus High School in the Kayole district of Nairobi.  

There, young men and women are taught languages, science, history, geography, religion, business studies, and computer programming.  Upon completion of the course, students at St. Anectus are prepared for the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Examination, which qualifies them for admission to university.    

There are high hopes for growth in the diocese, which will receive its first archiepiscopal visitation in October of this year.  Archbishop Haverland plans to spend several days the Diocese of Kenya on his way to visit Zimbabwe, where he will receive several new churches into the ACC.
