Why I Donated – Brenda

I donated to Gideon’s college fund for several reasons. My sister, Karen worked closely with him for 3 weeks during an evangelistic series in Kenya last October. She was really impressed with his dedication to God, his church, his family, and his community.

Arguably, you could say that all of the people she met on her trip to Kenya we’re just as sweet and dedicated to the Lord as is Gideon but she saw a special spark – one we teachers see – that yearning to learn everything!

After my sister returned from her trip to Kenya, I wanted to maintain a connection to the people of Kitale. I just couldn’t imagine letting those wonderful people slip into the realm of memories. I reached out to Gideon and he responded so positively.

Through regular texts and phone calls, we have become friends. Gideon is a unique blend of left and right brains in a very masculine society. He is able to be focused and determined yet he retains his warmth and emotion.

I respect Gideon’s integrity and determination and I want to help, if I can. I’m proud to know such a mature 29 year old – who calls me Mom!

We are a group of mission-oriented people. Pastor Benjamin found us on YouTube from one of our sermons. He oversees a number of churches. They seek biblical truth and have thoroughly enjoyed Karen Zarska Styer's sermons about the experiential aspect of the heavenly sanctuary. Meg Smyth and Denetra Gary continued Karen's work for the next 10 days. Denetra focused more on the science of the brain and how it processes information while Meg focused on the experiential side of a walk with God. Curtis Delzell, an experienced missionary and evangelist, is currently with the lovely people of Kenya. They want continued Bible study as they seek a closer walk with Jesus. Funding comes from personal finances and private donations. Click on the Donate page for ways you can help.
