While on a first-time mission trip to Kenya, author Jana O’Guin visited the local men’s prison with the host pastor. When she asked an officer about the women prisoners, he replied with an offhand wave, “I forgot about them.” The Forgotten Women of Kenya presents a collection of stories of women who have been confined in African prisons, often with their children, and left with little hope. While they accept responsibility for their actions, many end up in prison due to the harsh conditions of their lives and the choices made to survive—often while protecting or providing for their children. These stories of restoring, rebuilding, and receiving the fullness of Christ’s redemptive power seek to inspire you and ignite your inner strength and determination to get through whatever obstacles may be holding you back. Drawn from one woman’s story of ministry in Kenya, these personal narratives share the lives and experiences of women incarcerated in African prisons.
