This letter comes to inform you that Rhoda Maina went to be with the Lord on December 1, 2009. Rhoda was 26 years old, daughter to Ken and Rachel Maina of Dunwoody, GA. She was suffering from autoimmune diseases known as Lupus/Scleroderma which caused her body to attack itself, targeting her digestive system. As per her wishes, her family will be accompanying her to Kenya on December 14, 2009 to lay her to rest. Because of the huge financial requirement, her family is now calling on relatives, friends and people of good will to support them in meeting these expenses.

Help Rhoda maina
Rhoda Maina is 26 years old and lives with her Kenyan family in Dunwoody, GA. She is suffering from autoimmune diseases known as Lupus/Scleroderma which cause the body to attack itself and can target any organ.
For Rhoda it has been the digestive system. In 2008 she was hospitalized seven times due to severely inflamed intestines. As a result she has lost a lot of weight and her body is unable to absorb nutrients. Due to her weakened immune system she has become very weak and requires constant attention.
She is receiving treatment at the Immune Recovery Foundation Clinic based in Atlanta, Georgia, where she is getting alternative medicine to stabilize the immune system.
Rhoda urgently needs $15,000 for a three- month treatment course. Because of the huge financial requirement, she and her family are now calling on friends, relatives and people of good will to support her towards meeting the medical expenses. This will give Rhoda and her family the much needed boost to continue fighting this disease.
Please let us support Rhoda.

Worship with Dr Ron Kenoly @ Eagles’
Greetings in the matchless Name of Jesus Christ our Lord!
Eagles’ Gathering Christian Centre is very humbled and highly honored to host one whom many consider to be a modern day Apostle of worship. Dr Kenoly is arguably one of the most influential gospel singers and worship leaders of our day! To quote Dr. Myles Munroe “The Ministry of Ron Kenoly was the anointed spark that ignited the explosion , acceptance, expansion, and global invasion of Praise and Worship throughout the nations like no other in our generation” and Cesar Castellanos, President of the Missionary Charismatic International Church in Bogota, Columbia, named Ron Kenoly “Psalmist of the Century”!
A Ph.D. graduate in Ministry of Sacred Music, Dr. Kenoly began his full-time ministry in 1985 when he became Minister of Music at the Jubilee Christian Centre in San Jose, California. He released his first gospel album for Integrity Music, Jesus Is Alive in 1991 and his first eight live albums with Integrity sold over four million copies! In the United States he regularly attracts congregations of 15,000 people, while in Bangalore, India, he performed for over 200,000 worshippers at a single meeting. For the performance recorded on his Majesty album (1998), Kenoly assembled a choir of 300 voices and a full orchestra to worship with a congregation of 8,000. In 2008, he led 6 million people in worship in a single meeting in Nigeria. Glory to God!
Since graduating with a Ph.D. in 1997, Kenoly has been dubbed “The Professor of Praise.” He has won many awards for his music and his worship meetings, including being nominated five times for the GMA Dove Award for gospel music, and winning it once, for Welcome Home (1996). Kenoly has made guest appearances on The 700 Club, Trinity Broadcasting Network, Hour of Power, Gospel Music Association Dove Awards, and Benny Hinn’s This Is Your Day. Two of his albums and three of his live videos have hit “gold” status for sales, a remarkable achievement for Christian music recordings.

A View from Kenya
Friday, June 12, 2009
9:00 – 10:30 a.m.
(Light breakfast available at 8:45 a.m.)
The Brookings Institution
St. Louis Room
Eighteen months ago Kenya’s abortive elections lead to widespread, unexpected violence, which was only quelled when the international community lead by Africans helped create a coalition government. What does this look like now and where is Kenya likely to go? Recent scholarship has raised serious issues about the efficacy of the democratic model for African countries. Does the Kenyan experience combined with lessons coming out of the recent Zimbabwe experiment with coalition and successful South African elections provide insights into the validity of democratic models in the African context?
On June 12, Dr. Constance Freeman, Regional Director for East and Southern Africa of the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) in Nairobiwill lead a roundtable discussion on “Democratic Elections and Coalition Government?? A View from Kenya”. Dr. Freeman has over 40 years of experience working in and working on Africa. Previously Freeman was Professor of Economics/Senior Advisor at the African Center for Strategic Studies (ACSS) in Washington D.C. and she served as Director of African Studies at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS). During her 14 years as a U.S. diplomat, Dr. Freeman was the Director of the Economic Policy Staff for the African Bureau where she helped craft U.S. economic policy for sub-Saharan Africa and she worked as Economic Counselor at the American Embassy in Nairobi where she developed U.S. economic policy towards Kenya.
Dr. Freeman will be joined by Dr. Mwangi Kimenyi, Senior Fellow of the Africa Growth Initiative at the Brookings Institution. Previously Dr. Kimenyi was the founding executive director of the Kenya Institute for Public Policy Research and Analysis (1999-2005), and currently focuses on Africa’s development including institutions for economic growth, political economy, and private sector development.

Dear Kenyan community in Columbus, Ohio
It is with deep regrets that we announce the deaths of hundreds of Kenyans on a daily basis. 1 in 4 Kenyans or 10 million people are faced with starvation in 2009. The deceased were the fathers to some, mothers to others, sisters and brothers to all of us and are being laid to rest everyday all around the country. We always come together when one of us has lost a loved one and this time we are all affected.
There will be prayers and a fundraiser on Sunday May 3rd from 2:00 PM at The Revival Missions International Center starting from 2:00 p.m. Please join us as we console our fellow Kenyans and say enough is enough, it is time to rise and help. May God bless you as you continue to intercede for and behalf of Kenya.

Your Excellency Sir,
RE: PETITION TO ACT ON THE CURRENT COURT DECISION AS PERTAINS TO THE DEATH OF THE LATE PETER KAMAU MWANGI
This Petition comes in lieu of the recent court decision where Bail was granted and set at $150,000 for the perpetrator giving him a chance be set free awaiting trial.
Your Excellency, This petition is not a demand but rather an earnest request for your honorable office to take charge and ensure fair representation and justice for the deceased.
This petition is based on the following observations:
The committee and members of the community question how the Judge got to grant bail even after the investigating detective clearly explained that he was not done with the investigation and still has a few more witnesses to question.
The amount of bail set is also questionable especially when it regard two felony counts of murder, The Judge did not explain how he came up to that conclusion leaving a lot of questions to doubt.
The District Attorney clearly expressed his doubts as to the possibility of the perpetrator being a flight risk since he has Family ties in Both the United states of America and Jamaica.
Your attention and address of this matter will be greatly appreciated and thanking you in advance we remain.
The Presiding Committee,
The Kenyan Community in Atlanta (T.K.I.A)
Friends of Kamau.

Tragic Loss In Our Community
As many of us know by now, our community was dealt a severe blow on Saturday January 17th when an auto accident claimed the life of one of our own, Anne Nthambi Kituku. This is a loss not just to the Kituku family but also to our entire community.
In the midst of the sadness and the tears, our community is once again called upon to rally around this inflicted family and shower them with our love and support. Our strength as a community is once again being called upon in the face of this grave tragedy. Our cohesion as a community and our brotherhood and sisterhood will be tested. But for those of us who have been around and have witnessed similar challenges in the past, the outcome is not in doubt. We will come together and meet this challenge to the fullest.
The challenge is not small. This family needs our prayers to keep them strong as they deal with the loss. Just as importantly, we must show them our financial generosity as they struggle to transport Anneʼs remains to its final resting place in Kenya . The need is huge. The estimated cost will be $12,000.00. But the generosity and kindness of our community is even bigger. We are very confident that this need will be met!
To that end, we invite you to join us in our nightly prayer and fundraising meetings which we are holding at the residence of Matthew and Nancy Kituku.

Fundraiser for Ruth Mwendwa’s family:
Greetings! We are writing to invite you and your friends to the above function.
Following the accident that occurred on Sunday April 15th 2007 where Ruth Mwendwa lost her husband, Ruth survived the accident to return to her waiting children; thank God.
The accident changed her life so fast and in such a devastating way. The injuries sustained on her leg rendered her semi-incapacitated consequent to which she lost her employment; worsening her financial burden.
Additionally, she had her driving license suspended on account of the accident fatality, and the case continues to drag on. From then on, she has continued to rely on assistance from compassionate friends to keep her and the children going. To all those that have had the opportunity to help since day one to date, thank you and may God bless you all.
In the same compassionate spirit of love and goodwill, having considered the health and the financial difficulties Ruth continues to face, we appeal to all men and women to whom this message comes, to come to the fundraiser and give generously to help Ruth get on her feet on the road to recovery. We figure she needs at least 6 months assistance to help her as she awaits the decision from DMV Sacramento on her license, which is critical for her employment after recovery. Further, we hope the doctors will have the same period to review and conduct the pending operation of her leg. We feel this help is timely and worth the sacrifice; after all, she is better off up and running than down and helpless amongst us.

Lydia’s Journey Comes to a Close
It is with profound sorrow, sadness and regret that I inform you of the death of our dear sister Lydia Abincha. Lydia succumbed to her long and painful battle with cancer on June 2, 2008. Hers was a long and painful journey that tested her endurance to the limit and yet one that she faced with realism, courage, and a firm hope that she would be one of the fortunate ones. While in the end she was not, her remarkable strength in the face of mounting adversity was a rare lesson in endurance for those of us that knew her and walked these her final days behind her steady though slowed step.
Lydia, you are treasure to those of us that knew you. You will be sorely missed. May our good Lord rest your humble soul in eternal peace.

The book Leadershipis a blue print, a road map and a manifesto to promote Millennium Development Goals in Kenya and to strengthen the democratic leadership afforded to freedom of democratic leadership by the nations of the north and United States, the Leader of Democracy of the free world.
This book is particularly good for all Diaspora and their descendents who have little knowledge of their roots, if you think you know it all this is not your book.
Thus, I am very proud of the hard work put in by special people like you and others who were behind the book Leadership since inception of the manuscripts into the final production of the first series of Solomon on Leadership in Print! Together, we communicated and relied on each other’s skills, talents and gifts from the beginning until the end of the project.
I strongly believe that in every hard work it gives rise to a good quality product. Along these lines, the Psalmist in 26:7 was right, “That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works.” I cannot wait to put Leadership into your hands.
The literature is intended to educate the masses, expose minimum standards of honesty and integrity as it relates to the golden principles of the rule of Law and the hallmark of democracy.
Leadership covers the origin of African descent, the tribes of Africa and in particular, East Africa.

Medical Fundraising Dinner for Mr. Phillip Wambua
The fundraising committee on behalf of Mr. Phillip Wambua and his family cordially invites you along with your family and friends to a dinner and an enjoyable evening of entertainment and prayer. This medical fundraiser is to help Mr. Philip Wambua raise funds to schedule and undergo an amputation of his right leg in his fight with life-threatening complications arising from diabetes.
Mr. Phillip Wambua, who is the father of Preston Wambua (Pastor at the Gospel Assembly Church in Laurel, Maryland), who is a cousin to Pastor Paul Mulani (DFI), son-in-law to Mr. and Mrs. George Kieti, brother-in-law to Chris Kieti, relative to Mr. and Mrs. Benjamin Valenza, Joshua Nzueni and Dr. Mwalali (North Carolina). Mr. Wambua has been confined in hospital for the last 19 months and has undergone 4 amputations that have resulted in him loosing his left leg and all toes on his right leg. Additional surgical procedures are expected in the coming months to stop the infection from spreading to the rest of his body.
Mr. Wambua’s health has been progressively declining since early 2008 when he was diagnosed with a variety of complications due to diabetes. He was hospitalized in Kenyatta National Hospital, Nairobi, Kenya for 6 months, and underwent an initial amputation of his left leg below the knee. Thanks to the generous contributions of family and friends following a plea made earlier this year, some of Mr. Wambua’s medical bills were paid off in the amount of ($4,000) were covered. As the wounds on his left leg were healing, he gradually started developing gangrene (infection characterized by decay of body tissue) on his right leg. With mounting additional medical bills, and a rapidly spreading infection, Mr. Wambua had to move to a smaller hospital where the doctors were left with no other choice but to amputate all his toes one by one whenever medical funds became available. Now Mr. Wambua has no toes on his right leg and only tries to walk with his heel.
These tragic series of events have taken a severe toll on the financial resources of the entire Wambua family. In addition, Mr. Philip Wambua’s wife Esther Wambua is both diabetic and has high blood pressure and can hardly take care of her ailing husband. Due to lack of medical finances, Mr. Wambua’s success in securing a proper amputation of the right leg and fighting this painful life threatening condition is critical.
We therefore need your generous support. The committee is kindly requesting your help to raise $10,000 that will enable Mr. Philip Wambua schedule and undergo a much needed amputation of the right leg and cover the outstanding hospital bills that have kept him in hospital away from his family.
Come help us meet this attainable goal which will enable Mr. Wambua obtain the necessary medical attention and give him a reason to smile once again. Your personal participation in this worthwhile cause will be highly appreciated. United we can achieve this desired goal.
