Several Activities (H) 5 - Volunteers

16 volunteers from Tomball, Tx, USA visited Kenya form 19 to 26 April. They invited Pastor Carlos to lead a service on Saturday evening (April 19) at the guesthouse. Their goal is to come twice a year to Kenya for the next five years, offering Eye Clinic and sharing the Gospel with all the people who are coming to the Eye Clinic. (The red boxes in the back are the Eye Clinic Material that they brought.)
The Conquerors, from Kawangware, sang at the Service.

On Sunday early in the morning they went in two groups of eight to Meru and to Kariti, where people were waiting for them.

In Meru, many people were waiting for them too; a 92-year-old man came to the clinic,

… and a Member of Parliament of that region, Honorable Gitobu Imanyara and his wife, came to greet the volunteers. The lady in white is the IN-Charge of Gatimbi Hospital in Meru, where the Clinic took place.God blessed their week and their work of Christian love to our people.

Another volunteer group that visited Kenya was the Cross Fire, a music/outreach youth group from America. They were hosted by Nuru Lutheran Media Ministry (The Lutheran Hour Ministry), who took them to several congregations, hospitals and orphanages to sing and to share the Good News about Jesus. - We visited "Nairobi West Prison" with them.

On their website ( - Cross Fire International Team) we read: “Incorporated in 1965 as a non-profit religious organization, Youth Encounter is an evangelical and confessional Christian organization that began by sending a music ministry team to Scandinavia. Rooted in the Christian Scriptures and shaped by the Lutheran tradition, Youth Encounter has now grown into a global ministry serving churches of many denominations in the United States and over 40 other countries."

Ronald, Moses, Simon and Rachel performed music and presented a Christian message.

We gave “Good News” magazines to the people in prison.

After the presentation, Nuru and UHLC Team with the Cross fire and some other visitors took a picture outside the prison. – Nuru is doing a permanent ministry among the prisoners in Kenya, through the Correspondence Bible Course and through regular visits to several prisons.
