What a privilege it was today to be invited to attend the first Youth Service held at the Kawangware Community Centre. Each week Chosen Children of Promise (http://ccpkenya.org) conduct classes and activities for the local children of Kawangware (a large slum area in Nairobi). I have spent some time in the CCP office over the last few weeks (in between everything else) helping to solve some IT issues for them.
Today they launched an new initiative; a weekly youth service. It was amazing to see the room filled with children so fervently praising God.
Each Saturday from now on, they will run classes and activities from 3pm and then at 4:30pm they will conduct a youth service with the children actively involved in the running of it. Today's service was lead by a 12 year old girl and a 15 year old boy. They did an incredible job! The closing prayer by the girl was not scripted and showed a Christian maturity well beyond her years.
Once again, what is there to say but, Bwana asifiwe (praise the Lord!)
