Pastor Kaunda Kenneth is from southern Sudan. Currently, he lives with his mother and his brother’s son in a refugee camp in Uganda. He was born in 1975 and grew up in an English church where he sang in the choir. One night the Lord spoke to him: “Serving in the church will not save you, you need to receive Me by faith and confess your sins.” On the next Sunday morning, he ran to the church and received Jesus Christ as his savior. “It was a turning point in my life. Having accepted Christ, the peace came into my heart. I stopped being afraid of death.” He said. He began testifying to colleagues and relatives.
Pastor Kaunda us not yet married, but he takes care of his eighty-year-old mother and his brother’s son. His brother was separated after the war broke out in Kajo-Keji and is not trying to find her in the crowd among millions of refugees in different camps.
Pastor Kaunda was ordained in 2015 after completing the discipleship courses at the Theological Seminary of North-East Africa (NEATS), whose director in Kajo-Keji was Edward Dima. After the war started bringing violence and killings to South Sudan, all his members fled to the neighboring Uganda. There are more than 170.000 refugees in the camp. Kaunda began to gather people in his tent and soon he had 40 members of the church. Having received support from New Fields, he said: “I have no words to express my joy, I didn’t even dare to dream to have a bicycle but New Fields gave me a motorcycle for the ministry. Thank you very much!
