Pastor John K'ungu, a former street boy, shares a bible study with the street boys of Githurai. Nairobi has more than 100,000 street boys, most who constantly breath glue or solvent to stay high and curb their hunger pains. JTS is a weekly ministry of Calvary Chapel Githurai that gives them a meal, a place to nap, play and wash up. John founded and leads the ministry. He is also working toward planting a church in a neighboring town.

Izzy buckled to peer pressure. She wanted to be able to tell her friends back home that she tried Pan. I hope tasting something akin to toilet bowl cleaner provided a lesson about peer pressure.
