The Association of Evangelicals in Africa (AEA) is building its headquarters in Nairobi (Kenya). The long-awaited project has started its construction.



“The 80% inspirational and arduous job of planning, obtaining necessary approvals, and getting the contractor on site was done. The critical 20% perspiration, actual physical construction work, is now going on in earnest”, Aiah Foday-Khabenje, the Secretary General of the AEA said.



In an update about the construction, the inform about the new phase, which is “dynamic; it is urgent, time bound and costly in monetary terms (…) We can now see the budding stages of the building coming out of the ground.”

The AEA is calling all local churches and regional evangelical associations in the continent to join the project giving financially.



“As with all God’s work, God does not need us to do what He does. However, in God’s scheme of things, He has privileged us to be co-workers with Him.” To complete the first phase of the construction, 2 million dollars are needed.



Pray for this project and share the need with other Christians and invite them to participate”, Aiah Foday-Khabenje wrote.

Last year, the leader of the AEA told Evangelical Focus African evangelicals are “praying for the Church in Europe and desires to engage the Church in Europe, as the Christian influence fizzles out.”



The Association of African Evangelicals is a regional alliance linked to the World Evangelical Alliance and represents evangelical Christians in Africa.

Wow! This is very encouraging and thank you for participating in the project by sharing with your readers. This is exactly what we are asking from Christians across the world, as one of the ways to participate. We trust God to touch the hearts of his people to accomplish this project for His own glory.
