Emmanuel Temba serves as an elder with Sam Oluoch in Grace Baptist Church Nairobi. He started helping in Sam’s earliest efforts to establish a new church in Nairobi, while working long hours as an Uber driver trying to support himself and his new wife. Now that he is able to devote himself full-time to the work of the church, this will be a huge help in discipling new members of the quickly growing church, as well as evangelizing on university campuses and elsewhere in the city. Sam hopes to eventually send Emmanuel out to start another church in Nairobi.
