After ministering in Mukono, Uganda, Ellen Krahn, Evelyn Franklin, Vicky Ahlberg, and Margaret Gibb travelled to Nairobi, Kenya, a familiar place for Ellen, Evelyn, and Margaret.
Our schedule was filled with gatherings for pastors’ wives and medical camps in two different locations in Nairobi. We hosted an overnight retreat—a special time of bonding and deep spiritual connection—for the Women Together Kenya team and made plans for future ministry. We also had a special opportunity to meet staff at the Kenya Medical College, hear their stories, and begin discussions on how we can work together. We acknowledged that only God could have opened that door!
Eunice Monda, our Women Together Kenya Co-ordinator, joined our team to continue our work in Kisumu, Nyang’ori, and Kisii. A week in this part of Western Kenya was filled with spiritual enrichment at the Nyang’ori Pentecostal Bible College, women’s conferences, and leadership training for women. Medical camps were held in Kisumu, Nyang’ori, and Kisii.
The medical camps are great opportunities to provide medical care, build connection, and provide spiritual encouragement. In total, throughout five medical camps, our nurses, doctors, and pharmacist saw over 500 people. Our medical supplies were depleted, but our spirits soared. At every medical camp, we had a station designated for prayer. Every person who came for medical help was prayed for. Several gave their hearts to Christ.
We will be back in 2020!
