Just a few minutes away from our headquarters, between that and downtown Sagana, is Karima Primary School, Kirinyaga County. See map link, and note that should you do a search, there are multiple primary schools with that same Karima name in Kenya. This poor, rural public school was in dire need of water. Having safe, clean water for drinking and washing keeps everyone much healthier and more productive.
Here you can see Moses (far right) speaking to the 450+ kids. He is explaining why strangers who have never met them have paid for this rain harvest system to be installed. It is the love of Jesus that compells us to reach out to them in their need. And our GREATEST need, what our eternal souls need, even more than our bodies need physical water, is the living water of Jesus Christ. Most of these children have only ever heard the myth that if you can just be good enough, you will be saved. Moses was able to preach the wonderful news that we are saved by trusting in Jesus Christ – and nothing else!
Half of the 450+ children raised their hands, indicating this was the first time they had ever heard this message and that they were making a decision to put their trust in Jesus Christ alone that day! Praise the Lord! Moses has been invited to visit regularly and is excited to meet the leader in charge of spiritual development for this school for ongoing discipleship.
