While I do not personally

welcome back

Dear Emily,

Thank you for 'coming back' and sharing your story! I shall read your other entries so I know your story. It sounds like you are a woman of courage and strength. I would like to know more about violence against woman from your perspective and what is being done to empower women.

May you and your child and family be safe.

Thank you so much

Hello Beverly,
Thank you so much for your kind and encouraging message.I come from Western Kenya at the shore of Lake Victoria,my Native tribes men are fisher men and the majority are still submitting to their old traditional beliefs that has hindered us from getting on with development,my father was so courageous to take me to school,as those days it was believed that a girl should not be taken to school but should be given to marriage at a early age as age 12-13 years.I am soon posting a journal on my perspective on violence and need to empower women,!!!!!stay tuned.May the Almighty God be with you,Amen.

Congratulations!

Hello Emily! I read about Ket Wangi on your blog. You are a true warrior - fighting for and defending our most vulnerable citizens. Thank you for providing love and shelter for these innocent children orphaned by the violence in Kenya. Your work is a testament to your faith and spirit and will hopefully inspire others to join your cause. I look forward to hearing more from you. Love, peace and blessings!!

Wow!

Emily,

After reading your post I was inspired to learn more about your story, and went to your website.

What you are doing is truly incredible. I cannot think of a single person I know who would be willing to give so much of themselves as you have done.

Yours is an amazing story! Please keep sharing!

Thank you so much

Hi Caroline,
Thank you so much for this encouraging message.God gave us a Manual to follow in everything we do!!!Here is his instruction;;-Share your food with the hungry,take the poor and homeless into your house,and cover them with clothes when you see them naked,do not refuse to help your relatives.Who am I to refuse not to follow the way of the Lord?Read this from the Holy Bible;;-Isiah;58;verse-7.Let us follow the WORD of God to heal the world,Amen.
