First Baptist Church, Pell City, St. Clair Baptist Association, Mount Elgon,Kenyacomment (0)

August 2, 2012

By Maggie Walsh


First Baptist Church, Pell City, in St. Clair Baptist Association sent a team of 19 to the Mount Elgon region of Kenya, located on the border of Kenya and Uganda, May 27–June 5.

Every year First, Pell City, takes its graduating seniors on a special trip of their choice. This year the six graduates decided to use the trip for ministry instead of recreation.

In Kenya the team, which included medical personnel, set up clinics to provide treatment and godly counseling for those who were seen and treated. Youth pastor Mark Walker said they treated several hundred Kenyans over an eight-day span.

“Some days we had to close the clinic — that’s how many people were there,” Walker said.

When they weren’t helping in the clinic, Walker took the graduates to five area schools where they told Bible stories and spent time playing soccer and Frisbee with the children.

“We had a really great time,” he said, making the nine months the group spent fund raising worth every minute.
