PHOTO OF THE WEEK: A heartbeat to serve God well

Elizabeth Mueni, Kenya. Elizabeth, like many others at her church in Runyenjes, Kenya, has benefitted greatly from her pastor’s preaching and teaching, helped by ongoing training and mentoring by Langham Partnership. She serves in praise and worship and has also learned to teach God’s Word.

“My life is transformed to be a better life. The things that were bad are now going well…I want to give my talent in order to serve God well.”
