Partnership Opportunity in Nairobi

KMN Dallas Conference

Many thanks to Rev. Cyprian and the many folks from Highland Park Presbyterian Church in Dallas who made the February, 2018 Kenya Mission Network Conference such a success.  We were very impressed with the program and presentations, and we came home re-energized and better equipped for our work in Kenya.  The messages delivered by our Kenyan pastor guests - Rev. Robert Waihenya and Rev. Kamau Thairu - were especially meaningful.  We look forward to the next KMN Conference in 2019!     Jack and Mary Stuart Alderman
