If you are a regular reader of my blog, you’ve probably read about our Marriage Conference and Community Outreach, which took place in September.
Today, I am excited to share the latest updates, including pictures!
Some of you have wondered if we (my husband and me) traveled to Kenya to lead the events. We would have loved to. But unfortunately, our trip would have meant more costs. So we focused on raising funds for the event.
As was the case last year, our amazing partners in Kenya carried the day.
Nationally known marriage coaches Pastors Barnabas and Grace taught the conference.
Pastor Fred, pictured with his wife, organized both events (conference and outreach)
Pastor Wycliffe and his wife Felister provided a home (host church) for the events. And sister Sekunda oversaw finances and other details.
We are blessed by how God has connected us to people of like-heart and vision; passionate, prayerful, focused on training and uplifting the body of Christ and those not yet inside the body.
1. Highlights from the marriage conference
The conference had about 80 married people present. The theme was understanding the purpose of marriage, the process of becoming one, the obstacles to becoming one and benefits of cleaving in marriage. Such an important message!
2. Highlights from the Community Outreach
We distributed clothing to the needy. Our initial plan was to buy and distribute food as well, but we ended up focusing on clothing alone due to budgetary constraints. Also, our target had been the elderly, but God had other plans! So many others came, mostly women and children.
We are absolutely stoked about what God has done and are dreaming about next years event, a Pastors and Leaders only conference.
It is our hope as a team, to see leaders and pastors transformed in their relationships so they can bring transformation to those they influence.
On behalf of the entire team, “Thank you” to everyone who partnered through prayer, financial giving and in-kind donations!
Special mention to Mrs Obati, the owner of Midas Fabriques, a clothing boutique in Kenya, who donated bags of brand new clothes!
And a special shout out to you dear reader for providing a space for me to express our passion for missions.
Most of you are here because you want to grow your marriage but you read and send in encouraging words concerning this other side of our marriage ministry. God bless you!
