In March of 2015 LIFE International trained counselors gathered from all over Kenya and surrounding nations. These 13 trainees are now able to help men and women to recognize the consequences of choosing abortion, and to petition the Lord for healing and hope.
LIFE International teaches Intimacy Before Impact: before you pour into the lives of others, you must first be available for the Holy Spirit to work in your own life. As God planned, the mercy and grace Jesus pours into you will overflow to others.
As the trainees spent time in God's Word, they had the opportunity to recognize the sin in their lives that kept them from living abundantly and experiencing the overflow.
A powerful story was shared about how God used a situation intended for evil to accomplish His plan and save of lives
A pastor’s daughter became pregnant out of wedlock. This was a serious situation because a pregnancy outside of marriage threatened the reputation of the pastor, the family, and in turn, the church. As a result of attending a training for church leaders facilitated by LIFE International, this pastor understood that the baby was made in the image of God. Despite the clear truth of the sacredness of the developing life, it was very difficult for this pastor to recognize the pregnancy in front of the community. It was understood by the family that their willingness to share their story would surely help others to become free from the burden of a secret shame.
Worship burst out of this canopy in southern Kenya as God's servants welcomed freedom from their burdens. They feel released to share their testimony of God's healing with hurting communities.
