Burundi Stories Part 6 - Hope in Midst of Despair

Pastor Timothy Looking Out Over Kibera

One of many trash piles among the houses

Why We Went!

After leaving Burundi, we had a two day layover in Nairobi, Kenya. One of the team members had been to Nairobi on a mission trip a few years earlier and was able to connect us with Pastor Timothy who ministers and lives in Kibera, one of the largest slums in the world. He has one of the most powerful testimonies I've ever heard. From one of the worst hoodlums to one of its most influential pastors. His spirit and joy is extremely contagious. This was definitely one of the toughest days of the trip seeing the conditions in which they live. However, when you look at the kids in the last pic, this is why we go!
