We are excited and thankful to be able to send you Christmas greetings from Nairobi, Kenya. We thank God for His grace that has sustained us in the midst of the Covid-19 virus.
The pandemic situation
In the beginning when the pandemic broke out we didn’t think we would be ending the year with such a heart of gratitude for so many things done. The pandemic affected much of our work; the school and church were closed, movement around the country was restricted and our visit to Norway in May was cancelled.
The poor in our slums were hardest hit because majority of them depended on a day’s income to put food on the table. It was sad to hear that somebody lost a life in a stampede while crumbling to get a 2 kg packet of flour.
It has been such a confusing time and we thought the year would end without anything being done, but we thank God and thank you so much for responding to the needs immediately we wrote to you for prayers about the plight of the people in Kibera slum. We thank God that you joined us to feed our people who were hungry, helping the sick and meeting other arising needs. We are still meeting these needs in Kibera and we are ending the year by sharing foodstuff with needy families.
