Rainy Season in Kenya

Kenya has two rainy seasons every year. This year, the rains have been heavier than usual. Although the rain is a blessing, it creates hardships for those in the communities MOHI serves. Please keep the community members in your prayers.


Water Wells and a Missed Flight

MOHI partners with Orphan’s Promise, which is part of the Christian Broadcasting Network. Through the partnership, they worked with MOHI to install a water well in one of MOHI’s remote locations in Northern Kenya. I attended the ceremony to take photos and videos, but things went a little long and we missed our flight back to Nairobi. Oops. Thanks to my MOHI coworkers, I had a place to stay and a flight was booked for me for the next day.

It was a big celebration. We marched from the ceremony location to the water well. We even had a small marching band.


Out and About

We interviewed a young lady who is part of MOHI’s cosmetology skills training program and visited her home. She lives in this apartment building. I am grateful for the ways that MOHI is able to affect her life.

From the roof of MOHI’s school in the Kiamaiko community. This community is predominantly Muslim and I am grateful for the impact that MOHI is making.
