But God had other ideas.
They lost their hearts to the people here & wanted to find ways to help the poorest.
So began Abigail Ministries - www.abigailministries.org.
They return to Kenya 2 or 3 times a year and we joined them a few days ago in Uplands, as they opened a new village.
Re-housing 12 desperately poor families, previously living in ramshackle homes under a railway track.
This is Shena welcoming the families into their new homes.
Leave you to imagine the celebrations!
