In recent years we have been asked to provide an activity for the women who bring their children to VBS. In keeping with the theme, we made banners crafted after the book, “Eat. Pray. Love.” (Comer. Orar. Ama.). We acknowledged that we can draw close to God, certainty through loving and praying, but even when we eat in healthy ways and take care of ourselves.

Our final school visit was at Hyrax school in the heart of Nakuru City.
R. O.C.K. Bridge Ministries has been involved in the development of the 1000 students of this inner-city school by providing uniforms, supplying water when in need, and hosting weekly faith-building sessions led by Pastor Susan. We were welcomed with songs, prayers, and lots of giggles. We shared that Roswell Presbyterian Church loves them and we believe the future of Kenya is very bright because of them!

One of Kenya’s most materially impoverished areas is in a Nakuru slum. A few years ago, a small Baptist church in Georgia helped plant a Presbyterian church called Upendo (Swahili for “love”) in this slum. Today, the church holds worship, a medical clinic for residents, and a school for 160 students, ages 3-10. We visited the 3-year old class just before lunch (which the school provides); the teacher said that some of the students had simply run out of energy and were asleep because of the lack of food in their homes. We are grateful that this church is providing education and supplemental meals, especially for those who have so little food at home. Please pray for this community!

The team was delighted to spend time With some of the nursing students and staff at the Nakuru West Medical College. They continue to show gratitude for the support of Roswell Presbyterian Church and give the glory to God.

We visited a local private hospital where a recent graduate is working in the Outpatient Division. An announcement was made while we were there that she has been promoted to head of the department. She attributes much of her success to her faith-based education and the carpet is she gained to be assertive and creative for the well-being of her patients.
