Jean-Marie and Suzanne Frerot. Jean-Marie and Suzanne have been preaching in Verviers, Belgium for over 50 years, the area where both were raised. It is the French speaking part of the country, so many of the members have come from French speaking areas throughout the world, especially Africa. The congregation in Verviers meets in their own building near the center of the city and attendance is approaching 100, often times leaving standing room only. An upper area of the building is used as an extension learning center for students from Freed-Hardeman college.

Geoffrey Mwaura Njoroge, a native of Kenya, received a Bachelor’s Degree in Education from the University of Nairobi in 2005, and worked as a teacher and counselor in Africa until 2009, when he came to the U.S. to continue his education. He studied at West Virginia University and was baptized into Christ at the Morgantown church of Christ in 2012. Shortly thereafter, Geoffrey decided he wanted to be a preacher of the gospel, with the goal to eventually convert his home village of Meru, Kenya. He enrolled in the Sunset International Bible Institute and graduated in 2015.
Our elders have decided that 36th Street will be the sponsoring congregation, providing the majority of Geoffrey’s support as well as coordinating support from other congregations and individuals. Along with his daily needs, we hope to bring Geoffrey back to the United States to meet his supporters as we begin this work, and from time to time to report on his progress. We also hope to occasionally send a small delegation to Africa to encourage Geoffrey by working with him.
