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. We hereby invite you to an urgent fundraising event to be held at:
Venue: Christ Harvester’s Church Int’l, Marietta , GA
(CHMI – Apostle Karanja’s Church)
Address: 4341 Dallas Hwy, Marietta, GA 30064.
Date: Sunday, December 06, 2009,
Time: 2.00 PM.
(Refreshments will be served)
Family and friends will be meeting daily at the Maina’s home from 6:30pm to 9:00pm. Their address is:
113 Summer Crossing, Atlanta GA 30350.
However, there will be a prayer service today December 2, 2009 and Friday December 4, 2009 at Christ Harvester’s Church from 6:30pm to 9:00pm.

Ciru Mwangi (303-931-8381), Ken Maina (678-862-3140)
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.

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.

Democratic Elections and Coalition Government??
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.

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.
