Randy & Karen Brennan were called by the Lord in 2006 to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the nation of Eswatini (Swaziland), Africa. Their vision and purpose has been and continues to be:
“To make ready a people prepared for the Lord.” Luke 1:17
“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress….” James 1:27
Eswatini, Africa has the highest rate of HIV/AIDS in the world at 46%. As a result, many children have lost one or both of their parents. The Lord is meeting this problem by establishing orphan homes. The Brennans have established 3 orphan homes to help meet this need.
“The things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others.” 2 Tim. 2:2
The Brennans founded the International School of Ministry Eswatini (ISOM) to facilitate Bible training throughout the nation of Eswatini. Bible training has been conducted in 24 different locations throughout the country. They have touched 971 students with Christ-centered Bible-based training. 958 of the students are in some form of church leadership. These 971 students come from over 617 churches.
Discipleship ~ Multiplication
Discipleship and multiplication has taken place through church-based training sites. Out of the 971 students we have trained, 35 of those students have taken our Discipleship Training material into their churches. We now have 35 church-based training sites throughout the country ~ where dedicated leaders are raising up new leaders for the Kingdom!
“How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” Rom. 10:15
The Lord spoke to the Brennans in 2016 to be more intentional about bringing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to rural areas and establishing Christ-centered Bible-based churches. Through relationships that have been developed over years, 18 new churches have been planted. After the church is planted, there is an emphasis placed on discipling the new converts. Pastors are able to use our 14 Lesson Discipleship Course to help facilitate spiritual growth in the church. Between now and June 2019, we are praying & planning for 8 more new church plants!
