Sharing Tender Mercies and the Gospel at Dandora
On September 6, Spread Truth launched a partnership with the government of Kenya. Midwest Food Bank has a partnership with Spread Truth, a Bloomington, IL based non-profit, whose mission is to equip Christians to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. An event was held in Dandora 30 km from Nairobi, Kenya's capital. Dandora is the main waste and sewage dumping site for Nairobi. There high rates of crime and HIV/AIDS.
Godwin Matswa of Kapu Africa (MFB East Africa) went to the event. He arrived at 8:00 a.m. and cooked 3 bales of Tender Mercies that were distributed to 1,000 people. These people then received 14 packets of meals for their families (on average, meals for six days).
"Seeing the horrible living conditions - 13 people living under one roof - made me realize that I should not complain," says Godwin.
Jerry McCorkle, founder of Spread Truth, and his wife were on hand to distribute some Tender Mercies bales. Later, testimonies were heard at the Gospel Tabernacle church. Godwin also had an opportunity to talk about Tender Mercies.
