Desert Harvest

Life & Ministry in Northern Kenya

The northern and eastern parts of Kenya are home to several least reached peoples of Africa. The nomadic, pastoralist people in these areas wander from one place to another, living on their animals and famine relief assistance to survive. Eddie & Rachel Andersen came to Northern Kenya in 2008, working among the Gabra people. God is moving among the Gabra and other people in this area. This website highlights some of the ongoing ministries in Dukana and the surrounding areas, in partnership with the Africa Inland Church and Biblia Husema Broadcasting. This work involves all means available to accomplish evangelism and discipleship in the desert. Over the last several years God has shown the fields are ripe for the harvest but the laborers are few.

The Gabra are a nomadic people group, crossing the desert and arid lands of Northern Kenya. They keep camels, cattle, sheep, & goats. Animal sacrifice, respect of ancestors, and a hierarchical society determine their daily life. Most groups living in the northern and eastern areas of Kenya live in a similar fashion. Islam has come in among many of these groups, increasing the difficulty of sharing the Gospel.

As Christians, our purpose is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord with all people. A missionary chooses to cross language and cultural barriers to bring that message to people, often across political borders. Missionary work frequently involves using practical means to share God's love to gain the right to speak into the culture. God has called several workers to share with the people in this area.
