Rather than spend their money on vacations during the summer, a group of Worcester ladies was inspired to appreciate pastors in the Boston region. Betty Ndegwa who came up with the idea said that once she thought of the appreciation she knew it was the right thing to do. She talked to Penny Gitau, Magdalene Kiarie, Mercy Kinyua, Grace Muiru and Anne Mbugua who joined her. As a team the ladies got the Liberty Church events hall, cooked a dinner meal, bought and prepared special gifts and prepared everything needed. They then invited the pastors for the meal and gave them the gifts as they appreciated and thanked them for the work they do for the Kenyan Community in Boston region.

The pastors who attended the event were humbled by the generous gesture.

Those present included:

  • Pastor Christopher Kamau of Divine Gospel in Worcester, MA
  • Pastor Rev. Karimi Mumbui of PCEA Neema Church in Lowell, MA
  • Pastor Kihiko the outgoing President of Kenyan Pastors Association in Boston Region.
  • Pastor Ven. Samuel Kimohu of St Stephen Anglican Church in Lowell, MA
  • Pastor Rev. Peter Kiama of St Marks Anglican Church in Worcester, MA
  • Pastor Rev. Joshua of St John Anglican Church in Sutton, MA
  • Pastor Wesonga of International Faith Outreach Ministry in Springfield, MA
  • Pastor Ekra Muriithi of St John Anglican Church in Sutton, MA
  • Pastor Peter Maina of Delivarance Church in Worcester, MA
  • Pastor Rev. Stephen G Guaki of St Stephen in Lowell, MA
  • Pastor Rev. Lucy Waweru of PCEA Neema Church, Lowell, MA
  • Pastor Kennedy Nyanga of Worcester, MA
  • Pastor David Kahoi of Worcester, MA
  • Other visiting pastors.

Most of the pastors were accompanied by their spouses who were also appreciated.   

Presentations were made by various persons who all appreciated the work pastors do. The work appreciated includes: Preaching services in the churches on Sunday; consoling and leading mourning when members of the community lose a loved one; coordinating and leading events of fundraising to send a loved one’s body to Kenya; Praying with and for families when a loved one is sick; organizing or praying a crucial role in the fundraisers helping persons in need; praying for the sick and many more roles. 

Pastor Kihiko in appreciation said this was the first occassion pastors were together just to relax, have a meal and listen to others review the work they do. He said he could not believe there was no coffin or fundraiser as is the custom of such meetings. The pastors thanked the ladies for coming together to think of them. They thanked the ladies for taking their time to organize and use their resources. The pastors said they enjoyed the food cooked and prayed for God's continued blessing to the ladies and all Kenyans.
