Kenya

The missionary work in Nyeri central Kenya consists of a church and a Rehabilitation and Physiotherapy centre all under the overall leadership of Pastor Mary Wahome and her team, with the supervision of the Whitewell Church.

The physiotherapy and rehabilitation centre supports and helps children with disabilities. In late 2020 it was registered and licensed by the Physiotherapy Association of Kenya. 

Supporting the work of Physiotherapy, the centre also houses a workshop in which specialised seating and standing frames, and other adaptive paper products, designed specifically to meet the needs of the individual, are made.

People with needs are travelling several miles, and for several hours in order to be helped by those in the centre. For example, in the month of November 2020, over 70 children were helped by the centre.

The work in Kenya also provides spiritual support and counselling on a daily basis.

In addition the site also contains a church. During the early stages of Covid in Spring/Summer 2020, the church did have to close for a period, but at present the church is fully open and continues to reach out into the community with the message of the Gospel .

This mission work was originally started by Terri Fairfowl in 2007, and between 2010 and 2019 it was led by Pastor Jason Allen and his wife Jolene, who moved there from Northern Ireland. After their return to the UK in 2019 the work has continued under local leader Pastor Mary Wahome.

It is good to know that Lord is continuing to bless this work and we appreciate your prayers and support for the children and the church.
