HOUSE OF HOPE – TRANSFORMING LIVES
This year House of Hope celebrated its 15th anniversary. HoH has been a source of hope to many vulnerable and needy and orphaned children in the communities around Kandaria and Katito areas and many more. HoH has grown in many areas in ministry; Medical Centre, children Centre, school and Chapel. Many lives have been transformed and many converted through outreach evangelism and seminars. God has blessed us this month. We had 18 bridges training from all our friends and other church leaders.

BRIDGES TRAINING – UKUNDA, KWALE COUNTY
With the new openings at the Kenyan coast, bridges’ training has been growing as many church leaders and pastors join to gain knowledge on how to reach the unreached. During the month of August, we trained pastors and church leaders on the outskirts of Ukunda in Kwale County at Antioch Community Fellowship Church. 20 leaders who included pastors and church leaders trained on Bridges for Neighbors.

ANSWERED PRAYER – Lenkishon Family
It was in July 2016, when pastor Moses Rianto and Zion Baptist church visited Lenkishon family. A needy elder who cannot hear and who can barely take care of his family. The pastor and church leaders prayed for them. In the following month God opened doors through friends from Sweden to support two elder children from this family to go school.

ANSWERED PRAYER – Nanyokie Lepukeny
Nanyokie comes from a very needy family and had problems going to school. One of our church leaders, Samson Steven Mwanana, was able to share her story with one of our friends. Joyce Nott who is one of Unite 4 Africa friends from the US, was able to support this young girl go back to school. We thank God for His doing and the these needy children going to school.
