Nairobi and beyond!

During our busy week of outreach in Nairobi Kenya and surrounding areas, we presented at 7 schools, 4 city-wide festivals, 3 church services, 1 prison, 1 meat factory and 1 job search area to a total of nearly 21,000 people. We got to pray with lots of people, both to receive Jesus and for their needs.

Our team partnered with the Huduma Church in the Kawangware slum and Athi River First Baptist Church to share Jesus through food distribution, carpentry and dressmaking workshops, children's VBS, choir and unicycling performances, medical clinics and door to door outreach.

It was sobering to see the conditions these Kenyan's live in, yet exciting to see their enthusiastic and heartfelt response to the truth that Jesus saves! Thanks for praying!

Hello Nairobi!

After 20 hours of smooth travel, we arrived safely in Nairobi Kenya. We were able to arrive a few days ahead of the larger group of 60 (who is arriving tomorrow) in order to get acclimated and briefed for the busy week of performance ministry ahead.

We've had a few leadership team meetings and meals and took a tour of one of the venues we will be working at later in the week: a school for 1,200 students, run by our partner church here. We were there at the end of the school day and gave out a thousand high-fives and handshakes to precious children.

We are excited about the opportunities to share Jesus with the people of Nairobi. Looks like it will be a good and full week! Thanks for your prayers!
