Lamu Island Outreach

Shelly Meyer

Joyce Meyer Ministries is supporting a feeding program for children on Lamu Island off the southeast coast of Kenya. The children who are fed through this program are from the Orma tribe of northern Kenya. They have been forced to flee from their homes with their families due to tribal conflicts. They arrive on Lamu Island with nothing and are having a hard time just surviving. Steve and Jennifer Thuku, missionaries from Nairobi Lighthouse Church, are working to reach out to them in many ways. They are providing a nursery school where they are taught school lessons and most importantly, they are taught about Jesus. JMM is feeding over 250 children each day through this project.
