Meet Betty

Betty was one of the early members of Linda's Bible study which grew to become the Tabitha ministry. God gave her victory over alcohol and a changed life. Thinking about how to help her become independent, it became apparent she needed a home of her own. As we ventured out into helping her build a mud hut, we learned a lot about "mudding" and the housing for widows component of the Tabitha was launched.Betty has been a real inspiration to the Tabitha ministry. She has become a good family friend.

Women with their new Bibles

Ladies joyfully display their new Bibles which they earned by memorizing 17 verses and attending their local Bible study.

Welcome to Tabitha!

Welcome to Tabitha Kenya! We are creating this blog to let people know about God's work in the Tabitha Ministry in western Kenya where thousands of women are learning God's word and reaching out to poor women in their communities. Please put up with our growing pains. This is the first blog we have ever posted.
