Some of the bags will be sent out with teams visiting Nairobi area orphanages. The remainder of the bags will go to the 138 students who attend Racefield School which I’ve written about previously: Here is Part 1 and here is Part 2.DSC03385In 2006, The Crossing became involved with Pistis School when one of our members began volunteering there while living in Kenya. Pistis School is an elementary level school located on the edge of Nairobi, Kenya. It provides education for the children of graduate students attending Africa International University (formerly Nairobi Evangelical Graduate School of Theology.) Usually, at least one family member is getting an education at AIU while their kids are attending Pistis School. They are studying education, Bible translation, missions, theology, counseling, business and other disciplines. These graduate students and their families come from dozens of countries in Africa (South Sudan, Congo, Malawi, Mozambique, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda to name a few). There are also students from Europe and the US. Sometimes, kids are attending Pistis as orphans in the care of extended family members because they have lost their parents due to unrest, civil war, illness or terrorism in their home country. Pistis also educates local kids who are orphans or in financial need.DSC03460
