One of the things we usually do when we visit Village Church Planting (VCP) training centers is to hear brief testimonies from all the students. This helps us understand local issues, victories experienced, and challenges as well.
During my recent visit to one of the VCP training centers in Kenya with Peter, our VCP supervisor, and Selestine, the Kenyan coordinator, we heard from Sarah.
Sarah shared with us that she was born as the result of her mother being raped, and that because of that, she had regularly experienced feelings of inadequacy and low self-esteem most of her life.
Yet, since coming to Christ, and also through the teachings of OMS' VCP training, she now realizes that she was created for a purpose. Both she and her mother attend the VCP training, and they are nearing completion.
Out of her love for Christ, and inspired by what she is learning in VCP, she shared how each day from 4:00 to 5:00 AM she intentionally rides public transportation to preach the Gospel to other passengers.
We are so grateful to God for the work happening all over Africa. We are also thankful to our national workers, investing in lives like Sarah's to be a change-maker in Kenya.
