  • Frontier Evangelism & Church Planting

    BOL’s mandate is to reach the unreached and least evangelized people groups both within Kenya and beyond. This will be accomplished through frontier evangelism strategies with church planting as an end result. BOL has successfully planted churches in four people groups: the Maasai, Pokot, Turkana, and Toposa and are currently focusing on the Turkana and Toposa tribes. Our vision is to continue reaching more people groups outside of Kenya in the near future.

  • Discipleship

    As mandated by our Lord Jesus Christ “to make disciples…” (Matt: 28:20), BOL endeavors to train (disciple) the lay person within the target people groups in order to:

    1. Improve both Quality (character reflecting Christ) and Quantity (new believers) growth of the Church.
    2. Enhance the community’s spiritual and social transformation.
    3. Impact the discipleship student in reaching and discipling their own people group and the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

  • Compassion/Mercy Ministry

    Most of the targeted people groups lack basic needs such as food, water, medical attention, and education. BOL believes that the Gospel can not be complete unless it is represented holistically. Bread of Life engages in representing the compassion and mercy of Jesus Christ to the poor and needy among the targeted people groups through medical camps, relief food, supplying of water, child sponsorship programs, and other ways to serve these people groups who are in need. This is in obedience to Jesus’ call in Matthew 25:31-46.

  • Church Mobilization into Missions

    Bread of Life Missions believes that the local church is the hope of Jesus Christ to the world. It is through the local church that God has ordained the vehicle for world missions. Therefore, BOL will work in partnership with the local church both for field outreaches and the resourcing of the ministry. Bread of Life Missions will champion and challenge the local church in her involvement in world missions.

Update from Bread of Life

Transforming Lives


Clinic Expansion

In 2012, an American team from Seacoast Church joined the Bread of Life team in Namariat, Morungor, Turkana, to start construction on a 3-room clinic. The clinic was finished fairly quickly, but it remained unused except for a few medical teams coming to the area until January of 2017 when the Turkana county government partnered with Bread of Life to bring a community health worker out to staff the clinic.

Since it opened at the beginning of 2017 it has become one of the busiest and best run clinics in the Turkana bush. Because of the clinic’s efficiency and use, the county government would like to partner with Bread of Life again to build a larger health center with 2 wards and a laboratory. When we accomplish the larger building, the government will supply a full-time nurse as well as the equipment and medication to keep it running and better treat the 3000+ men, women, and children in the area.

Thank you for partnering with us to better serve the people of Turkana, Kenya, and to bring medical care as well as the Great Healer to a forgotten people.

In 2012, Bread of Life Mission and teams from Seacoast Church built a clinic in Namariat, Turkana,...


Making a huge difference with Bread of Life is easy.  See 3 easy ways below to partner with us today..


Pray that BOL would continue to discern God’s Will and walk in the direction that God has already planned for us. Pray that God would transform the lives of the unreached and least evangelized people groups that we are actively ministering to. Pray that God would supply all the needs of the organization and the full-time missionaries.

All BOL Prayer Team Members will be sent a quarterly letter stating the immediate needs of the ministry. Since there are many needs that present themselves throughout the year, this is one way that BOL can keep prayer team members active in specific requests that are needed.

BOL’s Board of Directors and Missionaries are in need of prayer team members who are willing to lift them up on a consistent basis, praying for needs, direction, guidance, and God’s Will.


Short term mission trips usually range from 10 days to 2-3 months, depending on the need of the missionaries in Kenya, the need of the group that is planning the trip and the accessibility of the tribe being ministered to. Some tribes take 3-5 days to reach, therefore those trips are usually longer in duration, than one of the other tribes that can be quickly reached. All trips are to one of the four unreached people groups, in Kenya or the Sudan, that BOL is strategically focused on. If you are an individual looking to jump on board a trip that is already planned, please check the Current Trips list and contacts us for more information. If you are a leader of a group and would like to organize a mission trip to an unreached people group, please contact Ernest Smith for more information.

Bread of Life Missions desires to give people an opportunity to experience full-time mission work to the unreached and least evangelized people groups of the world. This experience is for those who are looking to develop their personal character and leadership abilities through the context of missions. An individual who is looking to participate in the BOL internship can choose to serve 1, 3, 6, or 12 months. Once an individual is accepted into the BOL internship program, he/she is then trained and equipped for their experience through meetings, research, and Swahili development. The person will then leave for the BOL base, located in Kenya, and will live with one of our missionary families for the time period specified. Throughout the experience, the individual will experience one or multiple tribes executing their training through personal evangelism, open air evangelism, discipleship training, and/or children’s ministry. All interns must raise the financial support needed while in Kenya. The amount of each internship is determined by the amount of time one spends in Kenya. BOL, USA, staff will help in the process of training and ideas for financial support with all individuals who currently reside in the United States. Any candidates outside the US will have a personal liaison to assist in the training and financial support process.

We can accommodate teams from any nation for any length of time. The desired team size is 15-25, but BOL is willing to make exceptions for both smaller and larger teams. The desired length of time on the mission field is between 14-21 days. Because of the length of travel, it is not recommended to bring a group for fewer than 12 days. All trips will vary depending on the needs of the tribe being ministered to and the needs of the group. Since BOL is an organization desiring to reach the unreached and least evangelized people groups, all mission experiences will have the element of personal and open air evangelism. Other options for trips can include construction, medical, food distribution, and children’s ministry. BOL, USA, staff will provide training materials for each group and/or can conduct training seminars for the groups. All costs are depending on the dates of travel, the tribal group being ministered to, and the choice of outreach options chosen. All plane tickets will be acquired by the group and the cost of these tickets will be separate from the ministry cost. If you would like to take a group on an experience of a lifetime, please contact us at info@breadoflifeafrica.com  


Through gifts, such as goats, pallets of food, and bicycles, you can generously bless a family within one or more of our people groups. The cost of each of these items changes depending on the economy of foreign governments. You can visit the store to purchase any of the items below. Currently the costs of these gifts are as follows: Pallet of Corn Meal: $25 (will feed a family of 4 for over a month) Pallet of Beans: $50 (will feed a family of 4 for over a month) Goat: $35 Bicycle: $100

You can choose to give a gift to support a missionary and his family with their everyday needs, such as housing, food, utilities, transportation, etc. All of BOL’s missionaries are full-time, which means their entire family income is based on the generous donations of others.

Donate Here

f you would like to give but do not have a specific desire for how the money is to be spent, you can give a gift to the general fund. This fund is used in a variety of ways including, but not limited to, supporting the field outreaches each month, community development, raising awareness and gaining more supporters in the United States and in Kenya, future global projects, and many more initiatives and needs.
