On behalf of the Anglican Church of Kenya, I warmly welcome the appointment of Archbishop-elect Foley Beach and assure him of our prayers and best wishes. He is a man of courage, compassion for the lost and biblical conviction and I am greatly encouraged for the continuing witness of this new Province he has been called to lead. The future of the Anglican Communion depends upon raising up such leaders and I very much look forward to his participation in the work of the GAFCON Primates Council as we stand together for the truth of the gospel.

Editor's Note: Of the 43.18 million people in Kenya, over 4.5 million are Anglicans.  So, the Anglican Church in Kenya is over twice the size of pecusa, the liberal Episcopal Church in American that doesn't recognize the ACNA in America.  With the recently reported 13% growth rate of the ACNA and the continuing decline of pecusa, there will come a time when the ACNA will outnumber pecusa, but given their respective starting points when the ACNA was formed, it will be a while.
