Kenyan News and VisitMay 28, 2012
Mathia Church, our Faithshare Partners, is sending two people to visit us soon. They are keen to meet as many church and community people as possible, exchange ideas and learn about each other. We look forward to welcoming back John Njeru Karuoya who visited us in 2009 and who spoke to the church on Christmas Eve by the live link.
He is the senior elder and main contact person with us. He is a small time farmer growing tea and vegetables as well as serving his church and being involved in youth activities. He is currently a member of Kiangai Secondary School Board of Governors. His wife Esther leads the Guild, is also an elder and they have two sons and one grandchild.
The lady visitor is Bernice Wanjiku Kabath, a retired teacher now operating a hardware business in the nearby town of Karatina. She is married to Francis and they have three children, now all graduated from university.
The WCT is currently planning an interesting programme which will give you all an opportunity to meet our Kenyan friends, so please watch the church notices and do come to some events as well as meeting them at church.
This is now our 5th year helping Bondo progress to independence with our assistance and so now it is time to re-assess some future plans which will eventually be approved by the Kirk Session and reported in Contact.
Winnie asks me to convey her thanks and good wishes to all who have made this possible.
