Play dominated Day 2 of the 2nd Arise Women’s Conference on Thursday, Jan. 7, 2016, as the widows and mission trip participants split into teams to play a business game led by two guest speakers, then took a break on the playground to enjoy the swings, a slide and some basketball.
Day 1 of the 2nd Arise Women’s Conference began in the evening Jan. 6, 2016, as the h.o.w? Ministry widows arrived at the tented Camp Chemi Chemi in the Ngong Hills overlooking Nairobi after a 2-hour bus ride from their homes in the Kinangop high plateau countryside. It began with hugs, songs and tea, and continued with each widow sharing a story about what she has learned and accomplished since last we met.
Our in-country coordinator Keziah Murugi shares our big news! H.o.w? Ministry is now a registered limited company in Kenya! This allows us to purchase land in our name, and is the springboard for our fundraising to purchase 8 acres of land in Naivasha.
Help us purchase 8 acres in Naivasha to expand our vision with a calling for a vocational school and life skills training center, guest house, gift shop and poultry farm in addition to providing our widows with a larger place to gather for worship, fellowship and handiwork. A generous donor is matching up to $30,000 in donations this month!
Join us for an open house from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 5, 2015, at the h.o.w? Ministry headquarters, 465 Bristle Ridge in Cape Girardeau, Mo.
The students at Children’s Garden in Nairobi surprised Kristen Kimball with a video this morning on day 3 of her 72-hour race to raise funds for our Clean Water Initiative.
