Day 3~Mikindani Slum

Sean visited a slum in Mikindani with a local pastor and met with some men who are trying to facilitate a water system in the slum. Water is being piped into the slum, but only about halfway through~and only 2 or 3 times a week. This means that many people have to travel a way to get water and carry it home.

Here is a picture of one of the slum alleys~you can see that the homes are made of mud and sticks. They are not very stable in the rainy seasons. As you can see, it was raining yesterday. They were surprised that Sean still wanted to go, but he wants to make the most of his time in Kenya. He said the rainwater comes into the homes, and the children walk in the mud with no shoes.

This is Yusef, elder of the Mikindani tribe. If I remember correctly, Sean said he is a believer. He asked when Sean was coming back. There is so much need! We can't make promises to anyone, all we can do is pray and see what God would have us do to help.

Today, after washing his muddy clothes the Kenyan way, Sean will be visiting Onesimus Boy's Centre (the rehabilitation center for boys that I blogged about a while back). Then on Sunday, he has been invited to preach at a local church that meets at the Happy Rock Children's Center.

Asante sana (thank you very much) for your continued prayers~they make a difference!
