Africa is a vast country with vast needs. One Pastor is planning to make a difference in the life of his Community through the training of young Women to become tailors and so earn a worthwhile income and be leaders in their communities.

Hope for young women in Kenya

The  vision:  the Vision and hope is to Training and supporting  teenage girls (14 to 17 years)  with skills to help the sustain themselves in life. This will open a door of hope for these young women and change the future as they become leaders in their homes and community.

NEED: These girls are abused easily because of idleness and lack of basic needs but when they have skills, they can employ themselves or get employed and earn a living. While they are being trained with us, we would counsel them to avoid early marriages, prostitution that is causing many to die at an early age. Lack of basic needs is one of the major ways used by men who are stable financially especially when they are employed as house maids. This is a Vision and a long term hope of making a real difference.

    •  High School youth after being taught about Christianity.

MY Story continues


Hope springs forth!

Jeremiah 31:3New International Version (NIV)

The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.”

Psalm 147:11 New International Version (NIV) “ the Lord delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love.”

I was invited to attend a program called ‘Search for Significance’ at our Church. God touched my life in a mighty way. On the last night of the program, I felt a pain in my heart like someone had stabbed me and was turning the blade. I rushed outside to the safety of my car. “Father I can’t take any more, I’ve been hurt once so much, would you even hurt me again?” Through weeping and sobbing from deep inside I cried out, “Please heal me, Lord.”

My car seemed filled with the Presence of God, like liquid Love so powerful, so gentle so warm, the tears stopped and I felt like I was being bathed in His wonderful Presence and Love. The pain was gone – and I was free! I wanted to shout out to every woman who’d walked this pathway, “You can be healed! You can be free!” That was the beginning of a new journey for me.

Since then my heart has ached and longed to touch so many men and women with this incredible love that is a balm on their lives. I want see children and teens who have been abused freed from the pain and shame that so often keeps them bound. There is healing, wonderful healing and freedom in Jesus. He never intended that we should carry these hurts that so define our lives. Until we are healed, we reflect our pain back on all around us; we take offense, and hurt others.

Do I remember those painful incidents of my youth? Yes, but without the pain; they are just scars and shadows of the past, they can no longer inflict wounds. It was then that God reminded me He would cause my life to be a door of hope for many. My passion is to share and touch many lives with the Love and Healing that has comes to me through my Door of Hope, Jesus.

God lead me to some very special Scriptures that brought such blessing and comfort into my life. His Word is the strength of our lives. So He brought me from the wilderness of my loss and pain “leaning on my beloved’. Yes I learned to learn on and trust Him and His Word fully.

“Behold, I have indelibly printed (tattooed a picture of) you on the palm of each of my hands; your walls are continually before me” (Isaiah 49:16 Amplified Bible)

SONG OF SOLOMON 8 :5 (Amplified Bible) “Who is this coming up from the wilderness Leaning upon her beloved?” Some versions say ‘desert’.

As a teen, I saw God through the eyes of an abused child, expecting punishment and retribution, but through His amazing Love and Grace, He opened a door of Hope to me. I had seen a father figure (the person who raped me was old enough to be my father) as someone who hurt and wounded me and stole my childhood. God offered me love and a promise to never leave me alone. Father God  lead me to HOPE  I hungered for more of Jesus. I had met my Daddy God and later on I was privileged to meet with one of those who had hurt me so much and there I forgave him and released him to find forgiveness. Later he passed on knowing he was going to his eternal Lord. He had found forgiveness.

Through my blogs and newsletter I will share more of my life and in particular, the healing that Jesus has promised for the broken hearted the wounded, and the hurting. I hope you too will keep in touch through this page and  find the Hope that comes from our eternal Father God through Jesus on the Cross of Calvary.

Door of Hope

Hurting ? Lonely? Suffered Abuse as Child?

Violence as and Adult? Challenged by addiction?


 These are very real  issues BUT there ANSWERS.

There is a DOOR  waiting for you to walk through to HOPE

Hosea 2:15 New King James Version (NKJV)

 I will give her her vineyards from there,
And the Valley of Achor as a door of hope;
She shall sing there,
As in the days of her youth,
As in the day when she came up from the land of Egypt.

this speaks of  coming through to Joy and Hope from the Valleys of Pain.

This Scripture calls this place a Valley of Achor.  It was the place where Achor was stoned to death for disobeying Gods instruction to Israel. Sometimes this “stoning” may seem and feel very real as when we are suffering from violence and abuse, it may feel like everybody is talking about you, judging you . It can be an awful pace and this is because we can have a low self image and shame.   God is waiting  to touch you and bring healing, to lift you up above all your past pain and bring you to a place of HOPE.

Jeremiah 31:3 New King James Version (NKJV)

The Lord has appeared of old to me, saying:
“Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love;
Therefore with loving-kindness I have drawn you.

He is coming down your dusty difficult road today, wherever your life’s journey has taken you.  He, Jesus comes  with LOVE and HOPE  in His Heart for you. There is HOPE , HEALING and JOY for YOU. Experience real freedom from the past NOW!
