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.
