Jennie Roberts is an Australian missionary who graduated with the 1984 class of Rhema Bible
Training Centre in Perth. After graduation, Jennie, along with her two children, served the Lord in Sri Lanka for two years. It was there that she felt the Lord call her to Kenya to start a ministry there. She obeyed the Lord, arrived in Kenya in 1987 with her two teen aged children and $200 and has been ministering there ever since.
She is the Founder and President of Disciples of Mercy (DOM) a non-government Christian ministry that is a nation within a nation. Its main emphasis is to minister to the destitute people in the rural areas of Kenya. It is located in Wathorego, a village just outside of Kisumu, Kenya. The ministry outreaches include a church with a congregation of 150-200, educational & training programmes including pre-school to grade 12, special needs and vocational classes serving approx. 900 students in two locations, a medical health centre, prison ministry, an orphan program, among others.
DOM’s senior staff have all graduated from Disciples of Mercy’s Bible Training Centre and AFCM’s International Training Centre. In answering the call of God on their lives, the senior staff are appointed by the directors and serve in their departments with a heart to honour God and serve the community.
Jennie is also the AFCM Director for all of Africa. In this capacity, she maintains contact with all AFCM pastors in African countries as well as heads up the AFCMITC Prison Project in Kenya.
Starting with her faithfulness to bring the bible school to the local men’s and women’s prison, this outreach was recognized by the Kenyan government Directors for prisons as something that was creating a very positive impact on inmates. As word of mouth between both prison officers and inmates being transferred from prison to prison spread, the numbers of prisons wanting the bible school increased. Inmates taking the courses were becoming role models and leaders in their prisons and could be entrusted with greater levels of leadership. Some have even been freed from life sentences and others who have completed their terms have returned to their villages as productive and contributing members. AFCMITC Kenya now employs two of those former inmates.
With the growing impact, the national Director requested a personal meeting with Dr. Kaseman on his first visit to Kenya with the purpose of asking if AFCM could put the bible school into all of the prisons in Kenya (99). This project has been growing in size and effectiveness since that time. The AFCM Kenya Prison project now supports the AFCMITC in 40 prisons. As sponsorship funding becomes available, the numbers of prisons offering this valuable resource will increase.
Jennie wears many hats when she’s back home. Her obedience to the calling of the Lord, her willingness to serve as well as lead are all empowered by the giftings and anointing on her life. She operates in the office of an apostle to Africa which is where her heart is.

Laura Barron, Missionary Director,
Jews for Jesus Canada
Laura Barron is a missionary at the Toronto branch of Jews for Jesus. Along with her husband Andrew, who heads up the Jews for Jesus work in Canada, Laura pioneered the South African ministry of Jews for Jesus. She is a fluent Hebrew speaker and regularly takes part in the organization’s outreach ministry in Israel. Laura and Andrew have three children: Rafael, Ketzia and Simona.
Jews for Jesus is an agency that proclaims that Jesus is the Messiah of Israel and Savior of the world. The late Moishe Rosen, a Jew who has believed in Jesus for over 35 years, founded the organization. However, Dr. Rosen was quick to point out that he did not “start” Jews for Jesus. “Jews for Jesus began about 2,000 years ago, around 32 C.E., give or take a year. Jesus’ first disciples were Jewish, and there have been some Jewish people who have believed in him ever since.”

Kelly Brake, Brake Ministries International

Pastoring for 16 years in New York, traveling to over 85 nations, and ministering to over 250 people groups in some of the most remote places of the world, the Brakes are dedicated to going wherever God may send to share God’s grace in every way possible to meet the spiritual and physical needs of both churches and the unreached.
