In a massive effort to share hope with hundreds of thousands around Kenya, the Luis Palau Association partnered with more than 2,000 churches from every denomination to put on the Love Nairobi Festival. This free evangelistic festival, featuring live music, action sports, and fun for the whole family, aimed to unite churches throughout the region with the common purpose of sharing the Gospel and inviting people into a relationship with Jesus.
The Love Nairobi festival in Kenya’s capital city Sep 15-17 led by evangelist Andrew Palau and his wife Wendy, saw more than 37,000 people make a personal commitment to Christ.

For the lead-up to this festival, the Luis Palau Association held more than 160 events in and around Nairobi, including prison outreaches, eyeglass and medical clinics, a women’s dinner, sports clinics, school outreaches, media interviews, a business and civic leaders event, and more.
In total, the Nairobi campaign reached more than 130,000 people in-person with the Good News.
Over and above the campaign in Nairobi, Andrew and Wendy also invited partner evangelists from five continents—for the wider Love Kenya campaign, which reached more than 200,000 individuals in person, with more than 28,000 making a decision to follow Christ.
While local leaders begin the follow up and discipleship process with new believers, the Palau Association will move on to support similar campaigns in cities across the globe. Upcoming outreaches for the Palau Association include campaigns in Egypt, Uruguay, Panama, Jamaica, the United Kingdom, Zambia, and Argentina.
