The Lord is clearly at the center of these women’s hearts, minds, and souls. He’s doing beautiful things in Kinangop through h.o.w? Ministry and through these astounding women of faith.

Day 10 - KINANGOP
This morning started off very brisk and beautiful. We had a wonderful devotion given by Michelle, and we were blessed to have Princess, our special speaker of the day, join us for breakfast.
As soon as we made it to Kinangop, the widows greeted us with smiles and songs as they have every other day. Their joy and love for the Lord is apparent in every movement they make.
Our day was packed full of things we had to get through, so we got started soon after we arrived. Rebekah shared the Word and Michelle shared a passage with the women about hope and the Lord’s faithfulness.
Princess shared her story and explained what it means to “live positively” with HIV. The widows were invited to share what they learned about the virus from Princess when she first spoke at our conference in 2017. It was remarkable to see how much they remembered and how moved they were by her story. After Princess answered their questions, it was clear that they had gained a better understanding of HIV and its effects.
During our tea break, we brought out our Polaroid camera. They were amazed and lined up to get their pictures taken. They kept reaching out for us to join them in their photos, which was so sweet.
The rest of the day was spent gathering fingerprints for our platters and passing out donations. They were thankful for all of the items they received.
When it came time to say goodbye, it was beautiful to see them send us off with a smile. One of the women said to me with conviction, “We will see each other again, here or in Heaven.”
The Lord is clearly at the center of these women’s hearts, minds, and souls. He’s doing beautiful things in Kinangop through h.o.w? Ministry and through these astounding women of faith. To say that they have made an impact on my life and the lives of my teammates would be an understatement.
