December Bible and Soap Distribution in Kenya,
On the 19th of December Lily, and her team visited 15 homes to share the HOPE that we live to deliver Soap and Bibles

Here they visited Mr Mzee William, who struggles with walking any distance due to medical issues. He has very good English and was glad to receive a Bible as well as the soap. Lily will be following him up in the future to take him for an eye checkup.
