Zero Violence254 Walk: Day 5
It's Sunday 19th March, the first Sunday of the Zero Violence Walk.
Sundays are designated rest days. They give the team a chance to attend the local Churches and share the vision behind Zero Violence254 with the local congregations.
John Burke Baidoo and Douglas Kinyua, at this point have completed 160 km, and crossed from Kwale to Kilifi into Mombasa County.
There's a lot to thank God for.
The team has had a successful start to the walk, received tremendous support from the local community as they walked through the Counties and incredible media coverage.
But what a great Sunday this turned out to be!
Sharing The Vision With 600 People At Mikindani
First, a great Sunday service at Deliverance Church, Mikindani, under the stewardship of Presiding Pastor Robert Ngatia where the group was allowed ten minutes in each service to address the congregation. Each service had an average of 600 people. After Church, John and Douglas mingled with the congregation and tool photos.
Afterwards, members of the Clergy and congregation gathered outside for a series of photos. They signed the Zero Violence254 Petition as well.
A Visit To Radio Sheki
Later in the afternoon, the Zero Violence254 crew visited the Radio Sheki offices where Leah Gachugu, Head of Productions, hosted John.
News Presenter Nuru Ali, interviewed John about the mission behind Zero Violence254.
The station, one of Coast's leading FM radio stations, was kind enough to encourage its staff members to record and sign the Petition.
You too have a chance to sign the very same petition they signed right here.
In the evening, John and team made a presentation to Mikindani Victory Women Group at Amani Primary school.
All in all, it was a marvelous Sunday for the Zero Violence254 crew as you can see from the broad grin on John's face as they departed Amani Primary school.
