Why Kenya?

In January, IMFC officially launched its work in Kenya by starting the process of becoming registered as an NGO with the Kenyan government. Work has been going on for just over a year in the capital city of Nairobi and for between two and three years in the Western side of Kenya. How did this work in Kenya begin?

Bible Way, 50 Years Old!

Give honor to whom honor is due (Romans 13:7). I’m not very creative and I have very few original thoughts, but, contrary to what some believe, I am smart. I know how to take what someone has created, study it, understand it, adapt it to my situation, then apply and use it. This is exactly what we have done with the Bible Way materials in Uganda … [Read more...]
