We came across this awesome post by Winnie from Nairobi Chapel Embakasi.......
"So, yesterday was #GivingTuesday. We visited #EmbakasiPoliceStation. At first when I was told about it, I was very excited, I think visiting people is another of my hobbies...hehe! Then, it later hit home that it's a police station we are actually visiting. I got really nervous, because of the misconception I've had about the police, the not so good encounters I had with them in the past ( don't over think...lol! ) and now, here I am, intending to visit people I am not so sure I see them as God wants me to... That Tuesday morning I told myself, I am going to do this and do it joyfully. I really petitioned heaven to change my heart, mind and any negativity I've carried through the years about these #GreatMenAndWomenWhoServeOurNation! Cause deep down I know if it's not done out of love, it's sin...You know...God heard my prayer and He answered it in a very amazing way...
To make the long story a little short.
From the visit...I learnt
1.The police are as human as you and I. They have families, go through challenges like you and I and they also feel stuff as deeply as we do.
2.The police are friendly, let down your guards...Yeah! You heard me right!
3.There are great men of integrity who fear God and serve in the police force. This gave me so much hope and confidence. I pray for more like these in our government. *smiles* To you who was like me...hey! Let all that negative perspective go! It's not always what it looks like... #NB: Spend time with people to discover who they really are, stories will just remain to be stories...blah blah blah! Lol!#SeePeopleThroughGod's #Eyes!
#ICelebrate every man and woman of God who stands for nothing less but #truth and #integrity in their service to this great nation. #ICelebrateEmbakasiPolice and their great leadership. #LongLive! May God continue to keep you and guard you in all your ways as He makes your cup to run over!
