The guest for the rally was the University Chaplain, Dr. Duncan Mumbo, who preached on the love of God. This culminated in baptism of 1,257 precious souls to the Kingdom, (details attached on a separate file). In order to help with the huge number of baptism candidates, the West Rift Valley Field provided 17 pastors who worked alongside the ordained ministers within the University of Eastern Africa, Baraton.

The Baraton University Church was equally supportive to bringing the event to a success. The University remains committed to fulfilling its mission through outreach and in-reach activities.
