Africa – Simon in north Kenya, Dec 12, 2021
From Pastor Simon
Harvest Vision Ministries in north Kenya and south Ethiopia
Received Monday, December 12, 2021.
“Today we’re going back
after mission week of
church structure. This is the
first Boran tribe community church in Marsabit county It’s our prayers that they will continue to open the doors.”
Pr. Simon Lobei Ndori was born in Samburu County of South Rift Valley of northern Kenya.
His father was stolen as a child by one of the warring tribes where he was raised with them. The father eventually married, and Simon was born.
Because of Simon’s heritage, he has no history of his relatives.
The blessing of that circumstance is that he knows 8 different languages.
In 1997 the lord called Simon while he was in Ngare-Mare looking after their sheep.
It was around 3:00 pm when he fell asleep and the sheep got lost but while in the deep sleep he heard a voice calling his name three times, “Simon, Simon, Simon”.
On waking up from the sleep, he found himself crying.
Immediately, he knew that the Lord Jesus Christ was calling him,
however he kept asking himself, “What was the purpose that he was created?”
He kept wondering, “God, did you create me for this work?”
Then he heard a voice from afar saying, “Come to Me and make a crusade”.
He had a vision where the lord showed him a big harvest.
Eight of 47 districts in Kenya make up the NFD (Northern Frontier District). Five of the districts border the Samburu District and represent tribes that have a history of warring against each other.
The region is very dry and people live nomadically (moving for food & water) or are isolated in groups that live in manyatas (stick huts) with long distances between them and others. This makes transportation and communication very difficult. His vision for the equipment in Samburu is to reach the unreached groups of people in Kenya like the Rendile, Turkana, Boran and Samburu, moving from village to village through making crusades, seminars and film shows.
Simon was married to Rose Nkokor Ndori in 2003 and they are blessed with four children; three daughters and one boy: El-phlet Naomi, Ischar Marizenah, Ann Ayean & Abraham. Simon and Rose live in Archer’s Post in the Samburu District where they rent a home and Rose operates a beauty salon to help meet the needs of the family.
