Top Star Academy is a small school in the middle of the sprawling slums of Dandora in the Eastern part of Nairobi. This school was able to run Alpha in 2014 with the help of some of our volunteers that reside in that part of Nairobi. I am happy to say that this school was tremendously impacted by Alpha in many ways. More than thirty pupils came to faith, officially beginning their walk with the Lord Jesus. The head teacher Mrs. Agnes testified of the huge interest aroused in reading the Bible by the pupils and that has now had a direct impact in the Religious Education Class as seen in the exam results.
It was such a blessing to see how excited the children were at receiving Bibles; some of them said that the Bibles they had received would be the first ones ever seen in their homes. How amazing!
Alpha will continue this year with more trainings expected soon. The head teacher desires to see her staff trained in Alpha so that the program can continue to run in future.
