Where We Take Visitors, What I Do, Part 2

Our favorite thing to show visitors is what our DU grads are doing. Daystar’s mission is to turn-out servant leaders that will transform both church and society in Africa.

DU has long been a leader in the communications field in this country. It’s not uncommon to find DU alumni at the local television, radio and newspapers. They work both behind the scenes and in front of the camera, mic or on the front page.

But we have a large turnout of community development folks, as well. One place that is especially encouraging is the Exodus Children’s Center in Machakos. It was started by a student while he was still in school.

Elijah helps rescue abandoned children from his community. But he also helps handicapped ladies start small scale businesses and he does so much more - all on a shoestring. He may not be president of Kenya one day, but he will change the world of some children - for eternity.

Elijah is in the back, right with the rust colored shirt on.
