The Pastors of Kibera

Posted by Canaan Community Church on June 25, 2012 at 2:30 PM
"And I will give you Pastor's after my own heart who will feed you with knowledge and understanding." Jeremiah 3:15 Today we visited Kibera the largest slum area in the world with 1.5 million people living in extreme poverty. In Kibera there are over 500 Pastors who live in the slum, many with small mud houses no larger than our bedrooms! These men and women of God are using their meager resources to bring development to their communities. In Kibera there are over 42 different tribes each with their own customs, traditions and language. Each church I visited today ( will visit many more tomorrow) was not just a church. They had a school, a community center, a business of some kind being run by the youth as well as the church. Now remember that we are talking about small mud shelters with tin roofs so to have classrooms they are hanging sheets from clothes lines and we are talking 100 students in a space the size of our church nursery! What I loved about the slum area is that everything you need you can find in your win community being created, packaged and sold by people from the community. Unlike us back home where we have to leve our communities to find fresh food, or safe recreation. Our money leaves our communities immediately because we own none of the businesses in our neighborhoods. Even though they are small businesses which don't make much money the little money they have just rotates through the community so they are self sustaining. We may not feel there standard of living is acceptable but it is theirs and is not imposed by an outside community! Today I realized we truly have no excuse not to be serving our community in a greater way, one of the Pastors said to us today "Give me 5 men and women of God and we'll transform Kibera!" what a powerful proclamation of the power of God, notice he didn't say five men or women but men and women of God!!! Canaan I say to you just as Pastor Kloch said to us today " Give me five people of God and we can change our reality!" Asantay sa na, Pastor J
