WAPIS works with the van drivers and touts in the Banana area educating them on HIV/AIDS and substance abuse, guiding them to seek counseling and testing services and adopt and maintain healthy behaviors to avoid contracting or spreading the disease. The organization supports formation of HIV+ and Recovery support groups for those addicted to substance abuse and or infected by the virus
This was a different day for the team as they got a chance to wander through a community, meet the people, visit some schools and be led by an outstanding young pastor, Pastor Peter, who is the head and founder of WAPIS.
The team visited some schools and there is no political correctness here. They were able to pray and witness openly in the public schools, sharing their faith and testimonies. Pastor Peter fed them and then gave them a tour of his new church building, which has been under construction for quite a few years. The pictures indicate the quality with which they built. While there, the team met Pastor Peter's assistant, Pastor Samson, and they had a chance to pray for him and also bless him with a financial gift, for which he was quite overwhelmed. The team also presented $1,000 from Pastor Stanko's Sophia Fund for feeding programs under Pastor Peter's oversight.
That night the team came back to the hotel and left right away for dinner at a Brazilian restaurant out by the Nairobi airport
This will probably be the last post for the next 4-5 days unless we can get Internet at the Mara, and Internet and electricity at the Bemm's. If you don't hear from us, don't panic. We are fine, but will be in west Kenya away from the city and the conveniences thereof. If you go through withdrawal from this blog, you can go back and read last year's entries to have an idea of what we will be doing. Until then, take care and keep praying. We appreciate all the comments you send, which Pastor Stanko reads on the bus while we are stuck in traffic.
