Hello again from the equator!

My name is Natasha, and I’ve been serving on the mission “Sodiasist” in Kenya for 7 years. This week, we had a wonderful ministry. Our children were blessed with a hot meal, and they were happy. Many of these kids don’t have the opportunity to eat well, and sometimes they might only have tea throughout the day (they eat tea, perhaps because it helps a bit with hunger). Feeding the children before the ministry is a great blessing for us, as they are not hungry, stay conscious, and can listen to the Word of God.

We were delighted to have guests at the ministry who started the service by speaking about the importance of the Bible and how reading it changes you and the people around you. I served as a translator. We also began our journey through the Bible with the teens. We want them to see themselves and their character in each story, practically looking at Bible texts. The first story was about the creation of the world.

We also had a meeting with the teens who will soon transition to the next group. We talked to them about repentance, acknowledging Jesus as Lord and Savior, and what it means to be a new creation.

Every Sunday, I lead a discipleship group for teens. With the children from the orphanage, we continue reading and reflecting on the Book of Acts. Also, I prepared the children for school again. We received a message that the school lacks plates, spoons, and cups. So, I ordered everything and labeled it to ensure they won’t get lost.

I also had a meeting with a girl who used to live in the shelter with us. She has a strange mom who left her two children alone for almost a year. She went to the village, leaving them completely alone. We blessed the girl with cookies, bread, tea, and gave her a pair of crocs.

I am very grateful for your support and for the opportunity to spread God’s word together around the world.
