The Kenya Partnership started with a promise . .
. a promise to pray for each other
As we pray for our family, friends and neighbors as well as those across the USA, we are reminded that our Brothers and Sisters in Christ, in Kenya are praying for us and we too must lift them up in prayer along with the rest of the world battling COVID-19. We recently heard from Eustace Nyaga:
Greetings in Jesus' name. This time the disease is more serious here than any other time with more new cases being reported each day. The positivity rate is ranging between 12 and 14%. However, mass vaccination is taking place. I took a jab in April.
The schools having closed at the end of 2020 third term for one week, they opened on 26th July for 2021 first term. We have already allocated scholarships to students and they have been very happy to receive them. At the moment we are in the fifth year of the implementation of a new curriculum in this country and it will take some time before we get some readers to match the new curriculum.
Lucy, during the last one month we have buried very many people from our church, some of them having died of cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure and other illnesses. In the Church Elder District I am in charge of, we buried a woman and tomorrow we’ll be burying a man. Please pray for us.
May bless you and keep you safe.
20 years ago, the congregation of Christ Our King established a partnership with the churches of Magumoni Parish in Kenya. We promised to pray for them, and they promised to pray for us.
Education in Kenya is free through 8th grade. Once they enter secondary school (high school) their education is no longer free, so many students are unable to continue their education.
"Before the COVID-19 pandemic, nationwide enrollment in
primary education stood at 93 per cent, but at secondary level
was only 53 per cent." www.unicef.org/kenya/education
