Pastor/Missionary Rev. LeRoy George Weiss passes away in Kenya
A Tribute to Reverend LeRoy George Weiss of Kenya: Going through the beautiful wadding road through Kabsabet towards Khumsalaba, one passes several small towns. One of the schools on this path is friends Church Kaimosi Girls high school. The Friends United Meeting (then Five Years Meeting) sent missionaries to Kenya in 1902.They trekked up country and settled in Kaimosi which is in the Western Province of Kenya. This mission organization was part of the Quakers global world wide missions. In every part of Kenya, missionaries from different denominational orientation settled in remote areas. They established schools, hospitals and mission stations. Without these missionary efforts, Kenya would be a very different country. The vibrant faith that Kenyans have in Yesu Kristo and their unfailing commitment to God’s revelation reflects not just what these great missionaries did, but the uncompromising hold that our grand parents and parents held to the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is heart warming to see the growth of the Church in Kenya, and our unwavering effort to keep the faith of our fathers.
