Event description

Description

Jennifer was born in the Korogocho slums in Kenya and raised by her single mother under the leaking roof of a small mud shack. When Compassion opened a child development centre in a nearby church, Jennifer had hope for the first time in her life. When her mother passed away her sponsors became her surrogate parents. They wrote regularly, helping her through her grief and encouraging her to do her best. “The most important part,” she says, “was that they would tell me that they are praying for me every day and that they loved me.” Compassion provided everything she needed; food, educational resources, and medical care. They taught her life skills and most importantly introduced her to the gospel of Jesus Christ. “That is the greatest gift I received from Compassion because Jesus Christ became my all. I have walked through this journey of faith and I thank God for Compassion which introduced me to the saving grace of Jesus Christ.” Jenifer is now a human rights lawyer with the Office of the Attorney General and Department of Justice in Kenya. Come and hear her story.
