These 24 boys are from the Shikusa Boys Detention Center. Not a one of them has ever worn a suit in their lives. WorldCOMP, in partnership with the prison, arranged this special event to let them know that there is more to life than poverty and hopelessness. Guess what the occasion is?
They are going to be taken out of the prison for a meal in a restaurant and then they will be voluntarily circumcised. And they are excited about it.
The conditions in Kenya make it hard for boys and men who are not circumcised. They are beset with many infections and diseases. Non-circumcision is also a sign of poverty.
When I saw this picture I was really touched because we have a relationship with these boys and we pray for them to walk with God and live a successful life.
