“I met the organisers of NPB during a Kenyan Prayer Breakfast edition at Safari Park and they invited me to attend the USA edition. It is such a great honour to represent my country and to be a part of this great movement. These events are held all over the world because every country needs a moment of prayer and self-reflection to find the strength to deal with all the issues that face us,” she spoke to Pulse on how she got the invite.
