How One Community in Turkana Is Paying it Forward

Turkana County, Kenya, is not an easy place to live. Some have even referred to it as the oven of the world. High temperatures hover at an average of 95 degrees Fahrenheit. The air is dry, and rainfall is scarce.

Many residents have lost all their livestock due to persistent drought, and malnutrition is rampant — especially among children whose mothers struggle to produce enough milk to feed them due to their own dietary deficiencies. And yet, a culture of generosity and creativity is giving way to hope and innovation in partnership with World Relief.

Longing for the presence of God

“Growing up I had low-self-esteem. I didn’t get on well with my siblings and I constantly fought with them.

“I was already a member of the Universal Church. I started attending services with my mother when I was a toddler. However, I was not committed to God. I used to lie, gossip and I was also short-tempered.

“As I continued attending services, I heard testimonies from people whose lives changed after they received the Holy Spirit. That was when I realised that I needed to change and commit my life to God.”
