Church-supported school fills as Kenya floods
As the flood waters destroyed homes in Kisumu, in western Kenya, government officials asked church member Jared Odhiambo if people could stay at the Ring Road Orphanage Day School, a ministry of the Kisumu church. Soon, the school was “flooded with people,” said Odhiambo, the school’s administrator.
The church has collected $1,700 to buy food, medicine and mosquito nets for the flood victims. More than 100 people visit the school each day to receive supplies, and the local government is praising the church for its work, Odhiambo said.
The Poplar Avenue church in Wichita, Kan., supports the ministry.
