Members of Ballymena-based mission ‘Reaching & Teaching Ministries’ (RTM) will be celebrating the organisation’s 20th anniversary with a special event at its Paradise Avenue Headquarters on Friday evening, May 20.

During what promises to be a memorable night, Kenneth Wilson, the Founder and Director of RTM will launch his book, ‘Reaching and Teaching With The Message of Love.’

This short volume is a highly readable account of how the Lord told Kenneth to set up the ministry as he read the words of ‘the great commission’ in Matthew 28, verses 19-20 and goes on to outline the key developments within the mission over the past two decades.

It recounts the circumstances which led Kenneth and his wife, Dorothy, to make their first event overseas mission trip to Uganda and Rwanda in January 1996.

The book also details the couple’s first expedition to the Philippines – a country which was to become their second home – as well as RTM’s labour in Ireland and India and it reveals how the Reaching & Teaching Ministries’ charity shops in Ballymena and Coleraine were established.
