this year has started with a bang with Always Enough street ministry!
on our first meeting of the year with the street mum's we went expecting 5 or 6 of the women to turn up; 25 women came eager to hear what we had in store for the new year! we've been talking with them the whole month about change and yesterday 6 of the women gave their lives to Jesus and became Christian's! on top of that, 2 of the women have decided to leave the streets and will be joining others at a rehabilitation. there they will receive counseling and learn skills which will help them to stay off the streets once their done with rehab.
it's also been exciting to spend one day a week at the rehab and to see the women change before my very eyes! you can see them making cards in the pictures above and a selection of their handiwork.
please pray that this year will continue the way it has started with many street mums leaving the streets. also pray as we target a new 'base' (where a group of street boys and women stay) to reach out to, that God will use us to show them His love and for safety and wisdom.
Welcome to my blog! In case you didn't already know, I'm Ruth. In 2010 I graduated from University and before I even had time to settle down and get a job I felt a tug on my heart to go to Kenya for a few years to help in any way I could. When I arrived it was love at first sight; I loved the more relaxed way of life, the way Kenyans would laugh at EVERYTHING and the way people would put people first. On my first day there I also met Lox, a tall, dark & handsome African man who had the same passions in life as me and the more we worked & laughed together the more we fell in love & after a couple of years of dating we tied the knot & got married. Now I live, work, eat & sleep Kenya. It's great to be able to help those who are in some ways less fortunate than me but amazingly I always feel that I'm the one who gets blessed and learns so much from the people I try to help and from everything I do. Enjoy my blogs which give you a taste of this crazy yet wonderful life I lead.
