Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Spreading Christianity

By understanding the Lord the maker of heaven and earth is very important. Praying to the most high almighty God having a sense of omnipotent that God is everywhere. In my community Kibera where there is high poverty rate that even the society doesnt acknowledge if God there because all they know is suffering and hunger. Even children going to school drop out in the looking for food and shelter hence forth increase the number of illitrates in the community. There came an organisation of different churches that came together in order to preach to the peopele of kibera. Most of the Kibera reidence were baptised into christianity and it was amesing that most of the didn't take for granted they moaned to worship God. As a result it made the society to start thinking positively and having the sins eg human right
