The St. Barnabas Orthodox Orphanage and School (Patriarchate of Alexandria) in South Kinangop reported on Pascha that 15 people had been baptized the day before, including teachers from the school.

The Baptisms and Chrismations were celebrated by Fr. Methodios J.M. Kariuki, head of the orphanage and school and rector of the new Church of St. Nektarios.

According to Fr. Methodios, the newly illumined are former Pentecostals.
