The Outreach Rally laced with a Peace Message-Sabbath May 27th, 2017
It was providential that the weather was fine and cool. Students, teachers /patrons and parents came in thousands to the land mark event; the climax of the University English church Outreach activity. Prof Ramesh, Dean of School of Science and Technology gave a strong soul searching message based on faith. In the congregation was a powerful team of government officials led by Mr. Raymond Jembe, the Assistant Sub-County Commissioner, Chesumei Sub County,Nandi County.
The team which included the Chairman of Nandi County Peace Forum Reverend Rono, the Constituency Chair Mr. John Kipyego delivered a strong peace message from the Central government. With the national general election due August 8, 2017 it was only fitting that everyone was cautioned to be concerned about the importance of maintaining peace during such an occasion.
The remarks resonated well and dovetailed with the message about our faith in Jesus and how our faith in Him provides us with all the inner peace we need which in turn transforms into the material peace. The total attendance was estimated at 12,000 whilst those baptized numbered 1,195;a record number.
The peace team greatly appreciated the event; its organization and the objective and applauded the university administration for organizing such a successful and extra-ordinary event.
The deputy Vice Chancellor Professor Korso Gude, on behalf of the Vice Chancellor Professor Philip Maiyo, appealed to the congregation to give priority to Christian wholistic education as offered at the University of Eastern Africa Baraton.
