Stories from Africa: Faces of the Convention – Part I

The reason I came to Kenya was to attend the “Keep on the Watch!” international convention of Jehovah’s Witnesses. Here are some of the beautiful people I met.  With delegates from 32 different countries and a peak attendance of over 38,000, it was a truly international and moving event.

  1. It brings chills and nostalgic thoughts of when I had the honor to be a delegate back in the early 90’s. I was in that other similarly-shaped southern continent on the other side. Can you imagine the little bit of paradise we experience as we meet those friends from afar? They all have their challenges and struggles in this system just as we have ours. Love these photos and faces. Thanks for posting them so soon!

  2. I hope you get to attend another international convention in the future if we have them. This one was really really special.
