When the Oyaro family came to PLPC from Kenya, no one knew how much God would use them to transform the hearts and minds of the church. Pastor Richard and his wife Elizabeth serve a mission congregation in Bodoi, Kenya. They came to the United States to visit their daughters, but health concerns have kept them here in the states. The whole Oyaro family helped PLPC to become aware of the needs of the small and ” forgotten” community of Bodoi. A partnership with local community members in Kenya has enabled the Angaza Nuru team to discern goals that would be most beneficial for Bodoi’s future. Together with the local church in Kenya, PLPC has gathered resources to build a school and feed more than 160 children per week. Mission trips to Kenya have included medical clinics, education planning, encouragement of local church leaders and immersion experiences. Another trip to Kenya is being planned for June 2020.
