For the lead-up to this festival, the Lewis Pallau Association held more than 160 events in and around Nairobi, including prison outreaches, eyeglass and medical clinics, a women’s dinner, sports clinics, school outreaches and a business and civic leaders event.
In total, the Nairobi campaign reached more than 130,000 people in person with the good news.
Over and above the campaign in Nairobi, Andrew and Wendy also invited partner evangelists from five continents for the wider Love Kenya campaign, which reached more than 200,000 individuals in person, and more than 28,000 people made a decision to follow Christ.
While local leaders begin the follow-up and discipleship process with new believers, the Palau Association will move on to support similar campaigns in cities across the globe, including Egypt, Uruguay, Panama, Jamaica, the UK, Zambia and Argentina.
