Intentional Relationships

img-20170225-wa0286Two weeks ago a group of nine Mountain Slayers made their way up to Point Lenana- 4,985M ASL. It was a successful trip. This time we were intentional about relating with others. This did not start on the trip, but the Mountain Slayers came together and raised money for a cause that had been identified. We also partnered with Ahadi Kenya Trust to make a bigger impact at our community of choice.

Mountain Slayers is about relationships. This time we decided to give of ourselves in order to impact a government school that is at the base of Mt. Kenya from the Sirimon side. Nkiria Primary school has a population of 730 pupils all the way from nursery school to standard 8. We rolled into the school with enough shoes to kit each student with a new pair thanks to our partner- Ahadi. We also had social studies textbooks for the class 6 students. The previous head of state His Excellency Mwai Kibaki came up with a noble idea of free primary school education. What this did is that the numbers of students went up drastically and unfortunately the resources allocated to the schools do not always meet the demand. In this particular case, the school had twelve textbooks for Social studies for the class 6 pupils who are more than 100 in number. The Mountain Slayers pulled their resources together to buy additional books for the students.

It is very easy to think that by doing this activity the only thing we are trying to achieve is elevating the way of life for the students. This cannot be further from the truth. As the slayers who came together to support this initiative, we understand that it is indeed more blessed to give than to receive. Human beings are created to be in relationship with each other and the environment. When we lose sight of this one fundamental principle is where you find the breakdown of society. We are created to elevate, love and support each other in this journey called life. Mountain Slayers is being intentional about living out this principle.
