Introduction / History

The Samburu are a Nilotic group who practice a nomadic lifestyle of herding livestock in the arid areas between Mount Kenya and Lake Turkana. A limited response to the Gospel has produced 130 local churches under 13 different denominations. Pray for the men who continue to resist the good news of Jesus.
