Deborah Deren, Ngoswani, Maasailand, Kenya
Deborah serves the Maasai tribe in rural Kenya. Through her ministry the Lord has started a growing church and enabled a number of projects to show the love of Christ to the community. She says….
“Our church is still new and is hungry and thirsty for the Word of God. We have over 100 children every Sunday who love to learn and inter
act with visitors. Our Girls Club meets monthly to build relationships and help Girls 10-15 who are at risk of FGM and early marriage. We are in the process of drilling a deep well to provide clean water to the surrounding community. Once we have a reliable source of water there are many agricultural projects we can begin to help the community with.
We periodically go out into the bush with the local Maasai MD and do a mobile bush clinic and have had a team to do eye testing clinics for those living remotely. We have a program for providing hot lunches to the children at the nearby school. We have a ministry for Natural Medicine, growing plants that cure malaria and other ailments. We administer a Micro-Loan program to help small business owners become self-sustainable. Everything we get involved in is an opportunity to show the love of Christ in action.”
