DOOR-Africa, Nairobi, Kenya
Female Guidance Coordinator & Trainer
Flo was born Deaf and is the only Deaf person in her family. When she was born she had a cleft lip which was corrected after many visits to the hospital.
She was enrolled in a Deaf primary school and afterwards joined Karen Technical Training Institute in 1999. While attending Karen, DOOR-Africa invited some of the students to attend a Deaf camp. It was at this camp that she accepted Jesus as her Savior. However, she understood very little of the Bible.
She received an invitation from DOOR-Africa to be a student in the DCLTC (Deaf Christian Leadership Training Center). She attended DOOR-Africa in 2003 and graduated the same year. It was during this year of training that she started to understand the Bible and God's Story for the first time.
After graduation her mother set up a hair salon for her to work in, with hopes of opening a business for Flo to sell hair products, but this was not what she wanted to do. All along Flo had this feeling that God wanted her to do something for Him. On Saturdays she would go to Kambui Deaf School to teach Deaf kids the Word of God. On Sundays she would serve the Lord at Ruiru Deaf Church.
Flo was elated in August of 2005 when she was invited to join the DOOR-Africa staff. God had answered her prayers by giving her an opportunity to teach and share God's Word with the Deaf. Flo enjoys being the female influence at DOOR-Africa, and is a real blessing to the females who come for Bible translation training.
