I am helping to pastor a church in Nairobi, where crime, witchcraft, HIV, and poverty abound. Many go to church on Sunday, but then visit a witch doctor when they are sick or in crisis. Many also dabble in witchcraft. My team has been visiting the slums and praying for those living there. We have seen many healed and set free from curses and bondage. When these people experience the power and love of God, they start coming to church and truly growing in their faith. We are also starting to see some of the witch doctors leaving the area as we minister and do intercessory prayer. We believe we will see this slum, named Mukuru Kayaba, meaning “Valley of Thorns”, become the Valley of Hope, Life, and Light as the power of God transforms the lives of those living in the area.
