Friends of Jesus
"Friends of Jesus" is the name of a ministry in Nairobi, Kenya, that Gary and I worked with during the World Race in 2006. This is an organization headed up by Pastor Mike, a Kenyan with a great drive to share God's love with the hurting around him, especially in the slum areas of Kibera.
Pastor Mike applies his boundless energy to pastoring a church, running a nursery school, taking in street children, and traveling across the country to preach at conferences for youth. He and I have stayed in contact since my time in Kenya, and it is one of my prayers to someday make a return visit to Kenya and work alongside Pastor Mike in his ministry on a short term basis.
I am helping him get a website / blog up and running for his ministry, to share stories, pictures, and ministry updates. If you'd like to check it out, please visit the Friends of Jesus Ministries blog here.
Please leave him a comment of greetings and encouragement!
