Hard working women....whatever their age Oh boy do the women have to be strong! They are the ones who work in the fields, bare the children, usually at least six.....look after the children...even in the fields, collect the water (which takes hours!).....find fire wood, clean and cook....

Tuesday....What a day! One of the young men on the training, formerly a Muslim, suddenly got revelation as he listened to the teaching!!

Then we had a surprise visit from the Voluntary Community Health Care (CHC) Team I started whilst working for Links International, many years ago. It was so great to catch up with them.

On a previous visit we were inspired by Pastor Paul and his wife Lucy, who were so committed to their childrens' education that they decided to
Miti Mingi Football teaching completed We've had exciting news on the football team....especially as the conversations weren't all about football!. There was 100% attendance at every session....and all of the young men received a PottersHeart certificate. John and Darren did a brilliant job connecting with them. They talked about everything from relationships to Business Development..... to dreams and aspirations. They also had a training session for two hours on the bumpy, d
Another busy day in the Rift Valley. Today we heard a heartbreaking story from Kenneth. He looks after a Mum and a sister who are both unwell. His sister has mental health problems, and a heart defect. Last time we were here PottersHeart were able to help Kenneth to pay for his sister to go to a mental health centre.
