ICC Launches Barbershop for Christian Convert in Kenya
01/03/2022 Washington D.C. (International Christian Concern) – Last year, Kelvin and his wife accepted Christ after hearing the Good News from a group of medical missionaries. After their Muslim community noticed them skipping daily prayers at the mosque, animosity began to grow.
Kelvin was immediately fired from his job at a barbershop that is owned by a local Muslim businessman. Kelvin, his wife, and their two children were also rejected by their extended family for leaving the Islamic faith.
In order to support this family, ICC renovated and equipped a vacant shop for Kelvin to start his own barbershop.
He shared, “Today, I am grateful to God because He never sleeps nor slumbers. He saw our cry and our little faith and sent His angels to help us. Through our pastor, we got well-wishers who came to help us set up a new barbershop for me. It belongs to me. That is a miracle. I was not thinking about owning one soon for it is expensive to buy the equipment and install a good barbershop like this one.”
Kelvin continued, “I already have several men who shall be coming to my shop for shaving and hair care. In a week, I will be able to provide all that my family needs, and in a month, I will start saving. May the name of the Lord be blessed.”
