Alison Fenning reports on her recent trip to Nairobi’s slum district
People in Africa love to come and dance and sing to their favourite bands that they hear on the radio or see on the TV. Whilst in Kenya we were able to use this as an opportunity to speak about Jesus and giving people a chance to respond to the God who loves them.
Alison was able to preach and lead people to Christ. Over the two nights the team have estimated that 500 people responded, wanting to either acknowledge Jesus as Lord for the first time or come back into personal living relationship with God.
The benefit of this type of outreach is that we not only give people the chance to hear the gospel but also we bless an area by providing a concert for two nights. This often lifts the community, people have fun and enjoy their favourite bands and the Church has an opportunity to build bridges with local people.
