Revd Amma Elaine Waterfield
Deacon Elaine WaterfieldRevd Elaine with Bishop AdrianAmma Elaine Waterfield worked as missionary in Kenya, with the community at Chungni in Migori a remote part of Kenya under the religious name Nya Suna which means daugher of Suna. A British citizen and part of the UK church she was 'planted' into the missionary work in Kenya. Revd Elaine worked previously with another church before starting her OCAC work with the orphans in Kenya and so she has a wide range of pastoral experience. Her priorities are girl child education by having girls football tournaments for primary as well as secondary schools to raise the profile in order to stop girls dropping out through pregnancies and early marriages for dowry. Football kit has been provided through donations for football and rugby for the boys. A clinic and a labour ward has been raised and we have a small braille library. Presently, building materials are being gathered and volunteer labour is building a new school building, to contain the work and outreach. Since returning to the UK she is an active street preacher and pastor, using her experience to understand the homeless and needy on our streets. Amma Elaine is a trustee of REDIM Ltd (a not-for-profit corporation) for providing education as missionary activity and a director of Makongeni Church in Kenya.Deacon Elaine in Kenya
