Dr. Davis visits Rafiki

Upendo Choir from Tanzania joins in the celebration.

Dr. Terry Davis recently traveled overseas for his annual trip to Rafiki and is delighted to report that all is well at the Rafiki Children’s Center. The weekend was a great celebration of multiple accomplishments of our founder, the Rev. Dr. John Nganga.

On Saturday, February 17, a service of Thanksgiving was held to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Founding of Rafiki, the 30th Anniversary of Rev. John’s ordination and Rev. John’s 56th birthday! And what a celebration it was, we also celebrated the renaming of the Academy to Rafiki Terry Davis Academy. We were honored that the Upendo Choir traveled to Kenya to join in the celebration and provide their own brand of spectacular music.

Cakes for the occasions.

April 2016 Rafiki Update

  • By Dr. Terry Davis

It didn’t seem quite right to be at Rafiki without John Nganga, the founder and CEO of Rafiki whose original vision and constant “pressing on” for 18 years has Rafiki photo 1been the underpinning of the entire project. However, we are so grateful that
his health is holding up with the help of a skillful medical team, a dedicated wife and family, and the Grace of God. God willing, John is currently planning a return to Rafiki this summer. For this trip, John’s cousin Eston Kihara had been here for several days when I arrived, and represented John for the many events we had packed into a few days. Eston has just become a member of the US Rafiki Board.
