While teaching and leading the Nairobi Evangelical Graduate School of Theology (NEGST; now called Africa International University) in Nairobi, Kenya, David and Kaswera Kasali were deeply troubled by the wars and unimaginable suffering that were unfolding in their home country–the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) from 1996 to 2002.

As with most African societies, the family has long been the backbone of Congolese society. In this traditional structure, all men and women are part of a fabric of family members, bearing responsibility for the welfare and resting in the support of each member of this tightly knit structure. Aunts and uncles are mothers and fathers; nieces and nephews are sons and daughters; cousins are brothers and sisters. However, colonialism and imposed cultural change, together with decades of exploitation and poverty, compounded by the recent devastation of war, have torn this fabric.

What We Believe – Salvation


The word or term salvation is taken from a Greek word which means “deliverance,” “preservation,” and “safety.” Salvation involves the following terms: Regeneration, Justification, Sanctification, and Glorification.

Whenever one sees the word “saved” or “salvation” in the Bible, one or all of these terms may be in discussion. That is why it is important when seeing the words that one stops and asks which term is being used in this current passage.

Supporting The Local Church


I think I will call my friend Mike. Since I got my new position, I have not had the opportunity to speak to him much. The new job sure does keep me busy, a lot more resources here than I ever had before.

It sure is nice to have an active Facebook page, Twitter page, Pinterest following, Google Plus page and a team that knows how to use them and make the most the most of them. The church’s website is really great.

World Prayr has chosen to be different, starting with teaching others that the pilgrimage all those who have been brought near to God are on is not one about our focusing on what we are doing, or focusing on our sin or anything we are not doing, but focusing on what Christ did in order for us to know transforming grace. We refer to this message as the gospel of grace. We then live this out as a ministry by serving others through counseling, prayer, and sound biblical teachings.

We also differ from most ministries in another key area, working to live out the message of Philippians 2:4 by aggressively promoting other ministries and churches. As a mission team, World Prayr is working to serve those who are disconnected to reconnect them, one soul at a time, to local bodies of believers.

We refer to our team as an “Ohana” made up of many nationalities spread across the globe and within the Protestant faith.
