St. Makarios Orthodox Church
His Grace Bishop Neophytos of Nyeri and Mount Kenya has been traveling throughout his diocese to teach and reach his people. I met His Grace while our family was living on the Hellenic College Holy Cross campus and I’ve been following him on FaceBook since he was made a bishop of Kenya. I am fascinated by the people of Kenya and their thirst for Christ. Their joy is overwhelming. His drive to spread the Gospel of Christ is inspiring.
In these pictures he is visiting St. Makarios Orthodox Church in the Ndaragua Deanery.
Fr. Paul took me around the church to show me the size of the land while sharing his thoughts of a possible project that can be initiated to support the church. I also visited his home where he keeps few pigs and cows for his sustainability. I was very impressed by his hard work. At his church there was an orphanage that closed down because of lack of finance to support the philanthropic project. Hopefully it will be revived again before next year to help orphaned children in the community have a place to stay and go to school.
St. Andrews Orthodox Church
He also visited St. Andrews Orthodox Church Githima in Laikipia County.
He This church has a representation of many tribes; Kikuyu, Nandi, Pokot, and Turkana. The Gospel MUST be preached without hesitation. Christ Jesus must be lifted up and glorified in our hearts and minds.
St. Dionysios Orthodox Church
He also visited the new church of St. Dionysios Orthodox Church in Nanyuki Laikipia County. While there he ordained Dn. Joseph into the priesthood. Fr. Joseph will serve them as their priest.
