Turkana is the poorest county in Kenya. Even Kenyans do not usually go there because of the harsh conditions. It is extremely dry, and they experience constant, severe drought. But God is at work among this marginalized people group. Many of them who are educated and trained in various skills are returning to help their people. I spoke at Sunday services and a seminar at two churches in the main town of Lodwar.
The main event in Turkana was the seminars for pastors and leaders in the town of Kakuma, where are two large refugee camps. It was a very fruitful time, although strenuous. I taught seven sessions in two days. The seventy-one registered attendees were attentive and participated well. My host, who is the District Superintendent, and the Women’s Director also taught one session each. We were blessed with the music of Evangelist Sammy, a well-known musician who joined our team. FOTWM donors provided money to purchase four bicycles for pastors who labor in rural areas.
We held a special service in the village of Nameyana. It was my third time there. FOTWM purchased packages of cornmeal and beans which we distributed after the service. The people were very grateful.
In Nairobi, I ministered at a special healing and deliverance service at King Worship Center. God had moved so powerfully in January that they requested another service. God healed individuals of headaches, knee pains and other problems. Some were set free from demonic oppression. To God be the glory!
JEHO Children’s Home
At the home for abandoned and vulnerable children which we support, I taught at their Bible study. It was great to see them again. With donations from supporters, I was able to go shopping with Pastor Miriam and purchase supplies that they needed. We also paid their electricity bill which was due, and left money to fix the chicken coop.
