Several Activities (C) - 2 - Kibera

A group of African-Americans volunteers from a High School of St. Louis,Missouri, EUA came to Spring of Life Congregation, Kibera, end of July, to help them to built a Basketball Court. The goal of that project is to reach more youths with God's Word through sport, as many leaders of the UHLC parish came to the Lutheran church in the past.

Bishop Obare led the launch ceremony, with God's Word and prayer.
