My name is Ngina Otiende; I am wife, writer and marriage mentor. My husband and I are originally from Kenya, Africa, but we now reside in the United States.
As nationals of a developing country, we have first hand experience with lack and how it affects families and communities.
God has given us a passion to see marriages and communities transformed in Africa, through the power of His love and practical partnerships.
This year, we are partnering with a local church in Kenya to host a marriage conference and community outreach in August. (You can learn about our past work here)
We have set up a fundraising on Indiegogo’s Generosity platform. Click here to visit the page to make your donation, or learn more about the mission. Click here to Donate by Paypal.
A little back ground about this mission
The Marriage Conference and Community Outreach will take place in a small town, 200 miles from the capital city of Kenya. Keroka town has a population of about 54,000 people and majority live below the poverty line
The Community Outreach:
With the high poverty levels in this area, our goal is reach the elderly who are one of the most vulnerable groups. We plan to share the love of Jesus with a minimum of 100 men and women and meet their urgent needs, namely food, clothing and sanitary needs.
The Marriage Conference:
After our first marriage conferences for Pastors and Leaders in 2015, a lot of couples in the churches expressed their desire to attend a marriage conference and so this year we have opened the conference to all couples. Our goal is to reach 70 couples with the healing message of God and how that looks like in marriage.
My husband and I are in partnership with a local church in Keroka town, Jesus Last Time Ministry (JELTM). When I say partnership, I mean that JELTM are doing the work on the ground as we mobilize for funds and other behind the scenes work. The committee in Kenya is led by Brother Fred, a man of God with a passion to strengthen the church and see revival.
How you can help
1. Pray for the outreach and marriage conference
- That spiritual eyes will be opened and people will perceive and receive God’s love.
- Pray for the committee in Kenya, led by brother Fred. For favor, insight, unity and courage as they go about planning. Pray for cover and protection over their lives and families.
- Pray for all budgetary needs to be met on time ($7,800). For great favor as we approach individuals, businesses, and churches for partnerships.
2. Partner financially
The entire budget for the marriage conference and outreach is $7,800, with the bulk of the budget is towards the Outreach. We are primarily seeking donations in form of non-perishable foods, clothing, mattresses and sanitary items from individuals or businesses based in Kenya.
For all Stateside and overseas partnerships, we are only accepting financial donations because it is expensive shipping items to Kenya. Plus we want to support local businesses by purchases local products.
