The faithfuls drawn from 15 nations in the region have been camping at the Mamboleo Showground under the watchful eye of Pastor Samuel Misiani.

The pastor said that the same is aimed at among others, welcoming more people into the congregation.

"This is a historic event in Kenya. We are gathering to thank God for what He has done for the country. We will pray for everyone and many people will be baptised," he is quoted by the Standard.

Pastor Misiani added that the event is celebrated across the world and bares special importance to SDA faithfuls. 

"We are celebrating to give people the opportunity to know the Adventist faith, so that they also may know that God is still at work saving lives and transforming them to His likeness," he is further quoted.
