School Build Bringing Hope to Kibera

God gets the Glory

 People are craning their necks to see what is happening in Kibera. They pass by here every day and cannot believe what they see!  They say, “You mean that lady Monica, this is her school? She is from Kibera, how can it be? It MUST be GOD! It has to be GOD!!  This is too hard for a woman from here to build this, NO WAY!” God is being glorified here! The King of Kings and Lord of Lords is getting credit for THIS!! No human is able to do this.  

It’s a Terrible Place

Tommy Emory, from Jesup, Georgia, member at Calvary Baptist Church went to Kenya to help start our new school. Tommy told me that nothing I had told him prepared him for the reality of Kibera. It changes you, it gets in your soul, the people are melded in your heart, you see God and hear God better than you ever have before. I asked him to write a little something about his trip, this is his note:

Cindy,

While I was at Monica’s I sent my wife an e-mail that she said touched her heart in a special way. It best describes my days there. I would like to to share it with you along with some pictures of the building site:
The footing on the school was started today. Paul had a lot of men working on it. I took some pictures of Monica shoveling.
The property was nothing like I imagined.  When I looked at the area, I thought from the world’s view this would be a terrible place to build a school, but the Holy Spirit spoke to me and said from the Kingdom’s view it is the best place to build.
I went to a fellowship meeting with Emory,Monica, some of her friends, and three pastors in this area. I was really aware of the presence of the Holy Spirit.
Cindy, This school will give hope to those who desperately need to know that God loves them. The second photo was taken the day that we prayed giving thanks to God for His goodness.
Love,
Tommy
And this is my response:

Dear Tommy,

Thanks so much for sending this post! It is interesting that while I was in Kibera, the same thing happened when I first saw the land in person. I knew that the world would think it was crazy and we needed more land, but God showed me that we are ministering to children in Kibera and that is EXACTLY where we were supposed to be!!
God is good and His plans are so much better than ours.
I hope you are feeling rested. Let me know how it goes when you get to share with your church!
God bless!!
Love,
Cindy

“The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
