At the end of February our Superintendent Minister Revd Mick Neal and his wife Helen visited Kenya to open a bridge that was built with financial support from the Methodist Churches in Darfield.
While they were there they also had the opportunity to see the work done over the last 8 years by the Gacharu Water Project which was set up to bring water to villages and homesteads in a remote area of the country.
They also met up with Revd Meshack Waweru Nderitu the local Methodist Minister who introduced them to his 4 church congregations. People of great faith and commitment who have seen their churches doubling in numbers in the last 2 years. On Sunday 23rd February Mick preached at Ndugamano Methodist Church after which Helen and Mick were made elders of the Kikuyu people.
