Jacqueline’s Story

Jacqueline at knitting machine

My name is Jacqueline Nyamahirwe. I arrived in Kenya in February 2009 as a refugee from Congo. My husband Gatore and I have six children. Initially life here was very hard, but the Kitengela Covenant Church has helped me find life and hope again. They paid my tuition for a class where I learned to knit with a knitting machine. When I finished the class they gave me a loan to buy a knitting machine.

Our life is much better now that I am able to earn some money for my family by selling what I have made. At church I lead the women’s choir. I am encouraged by Romans 8:18 which says that ”I consider the present suffering to be nothing compared with the future glory that will be revealed to us.”
