During Terran's 33 days with me, I felt it would be profitable to give him some exposure to the poverty found in two of Nairobi's largest slums. We did so in an up-close and personal way... hanging out and laughing with some of the residents.
My good friends, Carol and Jeremiah, pastor a small church in Mukuru kwa Njenga - one of Nairobi's slums. I enjoy attending their church services and worshiping God in the traditional Kenyan way.
I took Terran to their church one Sunday morning.
|Terran really enjoyed interacting with the kids!|
|Buying sugar cane for Joy and the other children at the church|
|Getting to the church isn't easy, with no proper roads!|
|The boys really enjoyed him...|
|... and so did the girls!|
"The Turning Point Trust is a fantastic charity working with street-children and their families in Kibera slum, Kenya. They believe in working to meet the needs of individual children and supporting people to become the instigators of their own success."
I know several of the folks involved at Turning Point and they agreed that it would be a great idea for Terran to spend some time there. He visited on three occasions - helping with a jewelry project one of the days, serving tea a couple of times, and playing with the kids all three times!
|Moving around Kibera is also not an easy task.|
