The year 2020 has started well for the pastoralists in Kenya with the heavy rains continue pouring. There has been a lot of water and grass for the animals. This also came with lots of damage and destruction to roads and property. Many have been misplace by the floods. Kenya right now needs prayers. Desert locusts have destroyed lots of grass and farmlands. Please pray that God may provide a lasting solution to control the locusts.
HOUSE OF HOPE
In the month of January we have ministered to both orphans and widows in our community, empowering them so that they can be able to live normal lives like other people. Widows have been making baskets that they can sell for income generating and orphans be empowered with goats. And others have received mosquito nets and mattresses.

MEDICAL OUTREACH AT MAILTISA AND LUMBWA
During the month of January, we had a great opportunity for a medical outreach in two locations, Lumbwa and Mailtisa. We had a visit by the Korean doctors, who use acupuncture for treatment of the many diseases. Over 400 people were treated while a few were referred to local hospitals here for more diagnosis. It was a new experience with Maasai to see how acupuncture treatment is done. Many have testified being healed and others have seen huge improvement in their health.

AUDIO BIBLES IN MAASAI – MAILTISA
During the last year 2019, we partnered with Spear Africa to provide Audio Bibles to Maasai women who could not read and write. And in the month of January, 35 more received Audio bibles in Maasai language. We assessed the impact by receiving testimonies from those who have used it. We see that God it is transforming families. Men and children all gather around the mother to listen to the Audio bible. Some women can even memorize some Bible verses’ by listening to the Audio Bibles.
