Changing the World – One Life at a TimeJanuary 21, 2013 by Don Rogers
Empowering Lives integrates several strategic ministries so that a life can be empowered in a holistic way. Alcohol addiction is a significant problem in Kenya and for over ten years ELI has been reaching out to people and providing steps along with a community of care so that addicts can come out from their addiction and reconcile with God and also with their family if they are willing.
This unedited video was taken at the end of 2012 during a special ceremony held at a village church in Kenya when around a dozen people “graduated” from a month long rehabilitation program. The complete video holds the precious reunion of over ten families. This particular short portion of video captures one of the “Graduates” first giving a very brief testimony, and then publicly asking if his family is willing to forgive him for the wrong he has done. The first one to respond is his wife who… well, watch this moving moment and see for yourself. The others who follow are all brothers, sisters, and family members – overwhelmed with joy for the transformation that has taken place in Timons’ life. This is made possible because of the prayers and support of friends of Empowering Lives.
