Everyday on my way to and from work I always saw the same mother and child sitting on the ground on the corner, not too far from my house.

Greetings from Nairobi, Kenya!
God has been faithful to me and my family throughout the year 2017. The All Africa Conference of Churches is where I am assigned to serve as Global Ministries co-worker. The department of Peace, Diakonia, and Development under my leadership had planned many activities during the 2017. It will not be possible to share all in this letter but I will just give a few highlights.
Dear Beloved in Christ,
Thank you for your faithful prayers and support. I am forever grateful to God for your partnership in the building up of God’s kingdom. The love you have shown towards the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ has been a great source of blessing and encouragement.Read more

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
The World Council of Churches, World Evangelical Alliance and All Africa Conference of Churches, along with church-related humanitarian organizations and a coalition of church-related networks and organizations and partners, are promoting 10 June 2018 as the second annual Global Day of Prayer to End Famine to be observed in faith congregations worldwide. The Day of Prayer to End Famine will unite faith communities all over the world as a prayerful and spiritual movement to:
- Promote prayer, reflection and action with information and suggestions.
- Bring awareness regarding famine’s impact on the most vulnerable children and families, and help address its root causes.
- Connect with church-related and other humanitarian organizations that are currently working to bring immediate relief and positive long-term change so children and families can live out God’s aspiration for a dignified, peaceful and violence-free future.
- Help communities and congregations uphold each other in prayer and support, by sharing experiences, challenge and solutions.

Today is International Women’s Day and we celebrate the wonderful contribution of women throughout Africa. Some of these women we have worked closely with, others we have never met. Yet, in spite of their circumstances, they have done and are doing dynamic work in their communities. I want to share with you a story about a woman we know and another story about the faces of Jesus in Africa.Read more

Prayers for Kenya:
Dear God, we lift up our sisters and brothers in Kenya this day. We pray that Kenya's scheduled elections for October 26 bring peace and reconciliation to the country. Be with the people of Liberia, as they, too, hold runoff elections. We pray for children in Kenya facing severe malnutrition, especially in West and East Pokot, Samburu, and Mandera. God, be with the ministry of Dini Ya Roho Mafuta Pole Church as they work and minister in their community. Finally, we pray for the Jerusalem Girls School, as it stands as a light and hope for girls in the community. Be with all who work to make these ministries realities and for all who struggle. Amen
