David, in 1 Samuel 17: 37, reminds us that God has done it before and He will do it again. We should not panic; we should not be dismayed.
We need to pray and do our part-Stay home, Stop the spread, and Save lives. We also need to help those our neighbors and those suffering due to Covid-19.
In my short trip, I had time to initiated ministry opportunities with the Maasai community in Namanga, Kenya. As you know, we work with indigenous peoples, and at the right time, God has allowed us to engage one more community. Pray that we will make a significant impact in Kenya as we continue with the other countries as well.
On March 19, I was honored to officially launched a Women Empowerment Program (WEP) in Kigali city to provide education and training to disadvantaged indigenous women so that they can gain better opportunities for small businesses and employment. Sixteen ladies have registered for the classes, but they could not attend the launch due to Covid-19 restrictions. We have started with four sewing machines and we hope to increase to twelve.
