The vision of Iris Kenya Ministries is to see the country of Kenya penetrated by the light of the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. We desire to help bring this nation back to its Creator and rightful King (Psalm 24:1).Our vision is to plant churches wherever the Lord opens doors for us to do so, and to disciple people in these churches so that God can use them to bring change to the communities they live in.We also want to eradicate poverty from the communities we work in so have teamed up with Stop for the One who will help us run a village empowerment project in our Village of Peace.We will start with the children in our community who, for financial reasons, will never have the opportunity to attend school. Without a good education which will help them earn a livable wage when they are older, the cycle of poverty and despair they live in now will continue to destroy any hopes they have for a brighter future and this will eventually be passed on to their children. Our aid program will extend to help widows and elderly people who are caught up in this cycle and, with insufficient food to eat, are often sick and unable to provide for themselves.We want to empower them to break away from this cycle of poverty and despair by educating the children, providing food parcels for widows and making sure undernourished babies receive the food they need to grow healthy and strong. We will set up projects that empower and encourage self-sustainability, teaching the unemployed skills, such as sewing and organic farming - skills they will be able to use at home and to earn an income.We know that with God on our side, we will be able to empower our people to become all that God has called them to be. As we begin this journey holding their hands, we will regularly update you on their progress.

The Iris Kenya Village of Peace project continues to support children in need around our Iris Kenya location. The program continues to grow and the children love coming each week for a warm, to hear Bible stories, and play games. It's a wonderful program that also provides school tuition for some of the most underprivileged children in the community. Our team continues to share the Gospel with the community and they continue to see many new believers each week!
