Our family in Nairobi (Maisha Mema Children's Home in
Doonholm) goes to Mamlaka Hill Chapel - a branch of
- every Sunday. Both the leadership and people in
the congragation have become aware of the work Maisha Mema
is doing in Doonholm and Soweto. We here present
some happenings between Mamlaka Hill Chapel and Maisha
Mema from 2003 and forward - newest event first.
A group of people, among them "Mamlakites" visited us
some time in 2011
We really enjoy
when we get local support! :-) And it doesn't even
need to cost money. Our kids enjoy being
encouraged by real-life stories :-) A
group with people, among them also members of our church Mamlaka Hill Chapel, came to visit. They brought
flour and whatever else is needed to make chapatis,a local speciality and a favourite for our kids.
We really enjoyed, and appreciate the interaction.
And by the way; food is also part of a Better Life! :-)
Mamlaka Hill Chapel arranges Christmas musical - and
some of our children participated!
Pauline and Beth (number two and three
in the front) and Lucy (behind at right) were part of
Tabitha in the middle.
And just look at the beauties below!
Quite impressive scene, lots of kids in
action, lots of people in the audience - and very well
Thanks to Mamlaka Hill Chapel for giving both kids and
grownups a very good experience! :-)
Mamlaka Hill Chapel Sunday School girls

Children from Mamlaka Hill Chapel
visit Clubhouse August 2007
Jan Ryder, Children's Pastor in Mamlaka
Hill Chapel, wrote the introduction for "007 Mission
Possible 2008", where she states that kids can be
effective missionaries. Mamlaka Hill Chapel has a
Bible-based, sound Christian approach to this, where the
kids learn about the Bible, play games and have fun.
We were happy to receive the children in Clubhouse in
Quite a number of
children from Mamlaka Hill Chapel came - most of them from
the Sunday School. Together with our own children in
Clubhouse, they were very colorful, and very audible!
It is nice when children from different backgrounds can
interact. Some of the children from church had never
been in a slum before...
Talk about touching the heart!
Mamlaka Hill Chapel's One Year Jubilee 21st October
The celebrations of Mamlaka Hill Chapel's
first year as one of the five Nairobi Chapel
congregations took place at the grounds of Nairobi
Primary School. After the church service, many
activities took place.
Our children (doesn't include the middle
one!) participated wholeheartedly and had a superb day.
Horse- and camelriding, different games and swimming was
on the program.
Nairobi Chapel's Christmas visit 21st December 2003
Miss Kenya visits us!
the girls in our home were absolutely thrilled when Miss
Kenya turned up.
Just to put
the the record straight: Miss Kenya is the one to the
left. The girl beside her is one of the many Miss
Maisha Mema we have. She has since left the home
for further studies as a hair dresser and beautician,
and is expected to finish some time in 2008.
Nairobi Chapel came with gifts for the children, a guy
from Nairobi Chapel sang with the children, and
everybody interacted. A top day!
