The first day I arrived was the fondest.
I was welcomed and made family immediately.
That night was filled with joking and laughing - there was great sense of belonging!

🤔 “Why should I do a DTS?”
This school will INSPIRE and CULTIVATE GROWTH in your relationship with God; resulting in Christ-like character, which is based on a solid Biblical Foundation, the work of the Holy Spirit and the personal application of Biblical truth, especially concerning God’s Character, the Cross and empowering Grace.

22 HOURS the start of the April 2019 DTS!

Friends, on the 29th November 2019, YWAM Athi River slowed-down for the year.
We're grateful to God for another year of this mission.
We extend special thanks to all of you who have been part of the triumphs and challenges that have come over these months.
Pray with us that next year will be many times more fruitful!

Q: Why do cows eat green grass but give white milk?
A: This is not the kind of question to ask right now 😜

Q: Where does the milk for tea, at breakfast, come from?
A: (We thought you'd never ask! 😀 )
It comes from our cows! 🐮🐮

Here's a peek into Athi River's Cow Project!
