Dr. Thomas Opiyo
Pastor Thomas, one of nine children, lived as a street boy in Kenya. Many problems at home forced him to the streets at the age of sixteen. He attended Bungoma Bible School and planted a church in Eldoret, a town with few churches. His congregation has many children who found refuge there during the recent Post election crisis. Pastor Thomas and his wife, Hellen, care for their two young son and four others in their house. The church is currently believing God for a land, a permanent building and the sound system. Other monthly are support for full time ministers and the daily running of the Ministry. We are praying for a church, group or individual who would adopt this Kenyan work.
