Nathan & Carrie Radford {Kenya}

Nathan and Carrie Radford

Nathan and Carrie Radford serve the Lord in Kitale, Kenya, which is about 8 hours north of the capital city Nairobi. Kenya is located in East Africa.

Nathan is involved in the churches they have started in Kitale. He oversees the Bible Institute, conducts pastoral meetings, and heads up church visitation.

Prison Ministry

They also minister to prisoners, many of which are forgotten by their families and society. Over the past few years, they have been able to complete two buildings for both the men and women prisoners. Many of these prisoners have accepted Christ and upon their discharge, several of them are attending the churches in Kitale.

Currently, Nathan works in the annex prison, which is still on the main compound, but separate from the main complex. There are anywhere from 80-200 prisoners, depending on the transfers from other prisons. During their last term, they completed the course “Firm Foundations – From Creation to Christ.” The men learned much from the Word of God and responded well to the teachings.

Right now, they are trying to establish a church in the village of Rafiki. The biggest challenge with indigenous church planting in Africa is that the natives tend to depend on the missionary for everything rather than standing on their own and depending only on the Lord.

Hospital Ministry

Carrie enjoys going to the district hospital in Kitale to minister to the mothers and premature babies. She gives clothes and blankets for the babies as well as gospel tracts to the mothers.

Nathan is originally from West Virginia and Carrie is from Pennsylvania. They were both saved at a young age and are members of Calvary Baptist Church in Hurricane, West Virginia. They were married in October 2004 and have been blessed with two beautiful daughters: McKenna, who is three years old, and Camille, who was born in February.
