The Valley of Hope, Life, and Light
I am helping to pastor a church in Nairobi, where crime, witchcraft, HIV, and poverty abound. Many go to church on Sunday, but then visit a witch doctor when they are sick or in crisis. Many also dabble in witchcraft. My team has been visiting the slums and praying for those living there. We have seen many healed and set free from curses and bondage. When these people experience the power and love of God, they start coming to church and truly growing in their faith. We are also starting to see some of the witch doctors leaving the area as we minister and do intercessory prayer. We believe we will see this slum, named Mukuru Kayaba, meaning “Valley of Thorns”, become the Valley of Hope, Life, and Light as the power of God transforms the lives of those living in the area.
Angela works in Nairobi, Kenya and her vision is to see Kenyan Christians discipled and know their identities in Christ.
Empowering women through skills training is one way Angela sees people discipled. Angela trains women in jewellery making which helps women to generate an income and provide for their families. Along with the jewellery making, the women spend time in Bible studies and discipleship courses.
