Encountering Pain – The Next Chapter in Kenya
Article submitted by Brad & Cami Matlack, Field Coordinators in Kenya
As we have prayed through the different obstacles that “Girls With Vision” is facing, we are, as the leadership group, super excited with what we feel is the next step God is putting before us!
We have found a building in the heart of Ng’ando. It is central to the community – a perfect place for outreach to happen! We are excited to have a place for the Girls With Vision to meet on a regular basis – even throughout the week, for Bible studies, training and community. We outgrew the Matlack home a few months ago! (Although, we still continue to make it work!)
As a solution to many of the obstacles surrounding our ministry so far, we are praying that God will give us a way to open a daycare in 2 of the rooms, leaving the other room for a meeting space. Besides giving employment to some of our group members (Mama Kevin), the day care will also give a place for the girls to leave their children when they go for training or when they get a job. While we are having Bible study or group times, the children will have a place to stay. Outreach will also happen with the greater community through the daycare – meeting a real need that the community has, an opportunity to bring Jesus into the lives of more kids, and encouragement to many mamas.
