In the summer of 2007, Justin Miller, Zach Fallon, and Josh Titus, college students from the U.S., visited Kenya for the first time. There, they were confronted by the harsh realities of life for HIV-positive men and women. By God’s divine appointment, these friends were hosted during their trip by Cornel Onyango and Duncan Kimani. These two visionary Kenyans shared a similar passion and calling for the marginalized people group living with HIV/AIDS. Seeing the physical and spiritual needs of these suffering people, this team of college students and Kenyans set out to make an impact. The answer was simple: church. They believed that little Kenyan churches had the power to become caregivers and providers for Kenya’s HIV-positive population. They created a model that transformed churches into havens for HIV support, life counseling, and economic empowerment. This team of friends launched their first center, convinced that HIV does not have to be the end of life, but can be a beautiful opportunity for physical restoration and spiritual growth in Christ.
