On my first visit to Kenya in 2000, I spoke at the Youth For Christ Generation 21 Leadership Conference. For that trip, I raised the money to donate 1500 copies of my book, How Far Can You Go? Straight Talk About Sexual Purity. Since then, God has blessed me to be able to donate at least 45,000 more books to Kenya, South Africa and a French version for Burkina Faso and Togo (West Africa). Since that time, the Crisis Pregnancy Ministry here in Nairobi has utilized How Far as a resource for their ministry in teaching students about abstinence. I was able to bring a few books with me on this trip. I just learned that on Wednesday I will be meeting with students who serve as abstinence educators in the local schools. Additionally, I will be visiting some schools where this program is being taught and getting a chance to talk with some students. As I did not know that this was going to happen, I am totally excited about this new development! I will also be meeting with YFC staff to see how we can further solidify and advance our partnership.
15 years ago, I was inspired to sow into the next generation of leaders here in Kenya. What a blessing it is to see that vision not only having roots, but wings as well. This is just awesome!!!
