Tinderet Mission Station in Kenya

Our vision for Diguna Tinderet is:

“We want all people in western Kenya to experience the love of Christ.”

(We desire everyone in Western Kenya to taste the love of Christ.)

This vision has been realized over the years through the construction of the Rainbow Children’s Home, the start of the Rainbow Vocational School down in the valley, and continuous evangelistic outreaches from our immediate area to the Uganda border, Pokot and Turkana, Trans Mara, and the shores of Lake Victoria.

All outreach, whether to schools or door-to-door, is done at the invitation of AIC (Africa Inland Church) or other Bible-believing churches. There is close cooperation with the local pastors. They are also the ones who continue to mentor the newly won Christians.

We live and work in a mixed team with people from Kenya, Europe and South America. The long-term employees are repeatedly supported by short-term staff from Kenya and Europe, who stay from three months to two years and work in the various areas.

In order to keep such a large station running, of course, a lot of “background work” is needed. So we maintain a large farm, a carpentry shop, a car repair shop, an electrical shop, a plumbing shop, kitchens, offices and much more where people can use their gifts.

All work is in vain if we do not do it for the glory of God. To keep this in mind and to keep our spiritual life fresh, we have various home Bible study groups, worship services, morning devotions and prayer evenings where we share and fellowship with God.

Anyone and everyone who would like to get their own idea of our work is welcome – Karibu Sana Tinderet.

Our history

The station in Tinderet was officially opened in October 1992, as can be read on a memorial plaque in the middle of the station.

Visionary Vic Paul wanted to establish a base in western Kenya in addition to Mbagathi in order to reach even more people with the gospel from here.

He also saw the need of the many neglected and abandoned children and wanted to offer them a home where they could be well cared for and, above all, experience God’s love.

After some searching, a beautiful piece of land was found in the Kenyan highlands, in the Tinderet Forest. A waterfall on the site can be used to generate electricity by means of a turbine.
