Revival!: School of Discipleship
An explosion begins...
It all began in 2003 in one of New Fire's (then BBEA's) city-wide festivals in Webuye, a city in Western Kenya. While Dr. Boyd spoke to crowds each evening, his wife Mallory and their 4 sons, Bobby, Benjamin, Billy, and Brian, gathered crowds of curious children together each day. These children - hundreds of them - followed the Boyd boys like a Pied Piper to big open fields where games were set up. The boys divided the children into big teams, played games, and then spoke to them.
Games draw students of all ages
The boys told the children that God loves them and that He had "plans for good and not for evil" for them. It is a message of hope which they desperately need. In these student's world, 1 of every 7 people is dying of AIDS. Many are orphans, and many will soon die themselves. In Kenya, when the students follow God's plan, which includes sexual purity and rejecting witchcraft, they receive life instead of death by AIDS.
The Boyd boys spoke to crowds of children, and invited them to choose God's way and to join a new "School of Discipleship". We assembled a Kenyan team and worked day and night to disciple the newly believing children. We began something new: a School of Discipleship within the secular schools of western Kenya. At first just 10 students came to the "School of Discipleship"... then 100-400-600-1,000-3,000! It was an explosion!

And the School has multiplied. Bob, Mallory, the 4 boys, and the rest of the American team have returned many times, to organize and teach the students in new, un-reached cities. Now tens of thousands attend the School of Discipleship after regular school hours. Teachers have testified that their entire schools have changed... Because the students no longer practice unsafe sex and many now renounce the circumcision rituals, AIDS is dying in these schools.
Thousands of lives are being saved!
It is a work only God could have done ... In addition to the School of Discipleship, thousands of new adult believers have joined churches in Western Kenya. Tens of thousands of men, women, and children have come out of the darkness to become active disciples of Christ. Each of these disciples' lives has been dramatically changed. And now, through your partnership with us, we can see thousands more saved from AIDS. And we can see countless thousands receive eternal life through Jesus Christ.
