At the age of 9, Jey was sent to prison for stealing a purse. It was from there he prayed, “God if you exist, please take me out of this prison. I don’t want to live this life any more. And when you get me out of prison, get me out of poverty.”
Mathare is a cruel place. A slum plagued by intense poverty and violence outside of Nairobi, Kenya. Home to more than 700,000 residents.
Because of the trust of God’s people, He gives us beautiful moments of redemption in broken valleys.
Once there was a place called Mathare. It was a hard place; a difficult place. But, there was also a place called the Kingdom of God.
