My heart is excited about the outreach a church in the slum area of Nairobi is faithfully providing. Our funding allows them to reach their neighbors with desperately needed food items and sharing God's love.
This week we celebrated the dedication of a Skygo motorbike. Last year we were able to fund the bike for the vocational school "Mama Lorenza". When Covid hit, the purchase of the motorbike was halted. But now they are ready to put it to good use. The girls learn how to bake bread and sell it to surrounding schools and hopefully hotels in the future. The bike serves them as transportation vehicle. This gives them another source of income and achieve their long term goal of self sufficiency.
The celebration was "Kenyan Style" God was praised with prayer, singing and dancing!
On Friday and Saturday we went to the rural area of Dema. In partnership with First Baptist Church of Nairobi we reached the most needy families, widows and elderly people. For years First Baptist serves this community with a Clinic (one nurse) and a Mission Station. We gave out food packages and of course the Word of God. They received it with grateful hearts.
