Kenya & Operation Christmas Child

This week please join Operation Christmas Child in praying for Kenya. Most people live in the fertile plateaus of the south and west. Much of the north and east is desert. Only 8.9% of the land is cultivable. Kenya has 115 people groups that speak a total of 74 languages. 48% of the population is Evangelical Christian.

Specifically,
  1. Pray for the country of Kenya, especially with the teacher strikes in the schools. 
  2. Pray for the commitment of the team members and for the new members as they train for their positions. 
  3. Pray for the teacher and Ministry Partner trainings.
  4. Praise God for opening doors for the team to share the Gospel.
  5. Pray the seed of the Word of God planted in the children will bear fruit.  
Shoebox gifts collected in the United States in 2015 will be delivered to 137,496 children in Kenya. Praise God that over 661,958 children have received a shoebox since 1995, when Operation Christmas Child began distributing gifts here.
  • Kenya has 45.9 million people and is located in East Africa
  • 42% of the population is 14 years old or younger
