Hope for Peace Returns to Kenya / March 2008

A power-sharing agreement was signed on Thursday by rival politicians Mwai Kibaki and Raila Odinga. The deal is hoped to restore peace and order to Kenya which has been suffering from violence following disputed presidential elections last December. More than a half-million people have been displaced from their homes and over 1,500 have been killed as a result of the violence.

While the political agreement is a welcome step toward peace and reconciliation, there is still great need in Kenya.
Hundreds of thousands of people remain homeless, having their homes and businesses destroyed during the fighting. Many are still hesitant to return to their villages for fear of continuing violence. The terrible acts many have committed have caused deep emotional damage, especially for children who have witnessed these horrific events.

Our staff is continually meeting the basic needs of people living within the camps by providing them with staple foods. At the same time they share the love of Christ and minister to the spiritual needs of the people. 

We are pleased to report that 42 of our sponsored children who were found living in the makeshift camps outside Nakuru have been moved into our Children’s Homes. They are safe and our staff is nurturing them with the love and care they so desperately need. Please pray that they will recover from the emotional trauma they have endured.

Join us in prayer for healing and forgiveness for the entire nation as Kenya rebuilds.
