Isaac Masiga, Regional Director of GNPI-Kenya
We have been praying for wisdom about how to reach the neglected and forgotten Ogiek community of central Kenya. One of the biggest challenges is communication. Most of them do not know Swahili, English, or any other indigenous language apart from their own Ogiek mother tongue. We have a contact person who is a local missionary among them. We wanted to reach out to them using Solar Kits.
God answered our prayers in a wonderful way.
We did go to the Ogiek community several weeks ago, and we were received warmly.
The Solar Kit empowers ministers who go to remote areas to have greater impact.
One church leader told us that the Solar Kit had very important information. This leader said that by watching the film on the Solar Kit, the girls have learned how they can avoid being tricked into immoral habits and spoiling their futures. Another church leader from West Pokot County said, “It was a small box. One could not tell it could do great wonders. When they opened it and did the set up, I realized it was something important mostly for our pastors, but also for our county government leaders to use at church and to teach our children.”
Here is a small video report on the work we did with the Ogiek community using a Solar Kit.
Thanks for your continual support and prayers.
