Pastor Thomas & Hellen Opyio

Pastor Thomas, one of nine children, lived as a street boy in Kenya. Many problems at home forced him to the streets at the age of sixteen. He attended Bungoma Bible School and became good friends with John Garang. There was a time he and John shared a small room with one twin bed. Later Pastor Thomas married his wife Hellen and planted a church in Eldoret, a town with few churches. Thomas and Hellen pastor a congregation with many children. They opened their home to Thomas’ siblings and care for them along with their own family. Pastor Thomas is a wonderful teacher and interpreter when our teams visit Kenya. CAP is helping to put tin sheets on the side of the children’s building.
