It was an honor to host His Excellency Ambassador Robinson Githae at our 2016 Queens Night, Boston extravaganza, led by Queen Mary Karugia, the Queens Boston Chapter leader, a lady as the Queens President l truly cherish and honor for the good work she is doing in Boston, with her well able committee members and with over 500 women in attendance. Queens Night is a gathering of God’s lavishly loved women who we refer to as Queens.
We gather to celebrate one another, to fellowship, to hear an encouraging Word that will build us, to network, to be empowered, to have fun and to be reminded that we are God’s best, and an integral part of God’s plan for mankind. Queens in Boston entered in style, elegantly dressed with happy faces to celebrate womanhood.. The word was on point from the book of Titus 2 “Focus on biblical family- Distinguished role of a Queen”, well expounded by Reverend Monica Mulinge, all the way from Mt. Zion Deliverance church Mombasa. The presence of God was evident. Also in attendance was a Queens Night ministry board member Dr. Catherine Gathuka Franklin and Emily Soroko. The artist Lucy Wangechi “Chineke” participated with her famous song “ Chineke you are my God”.
Ambassador Robinson Githae delivering a special message for the Queens Night had this to say ” in the embassy, we are there for you. We want you to succeed. Boston, you’ve done very well and can do even better. You are God’s best, we’ve come to celebrate you. I see you’ve come dressed beautiful today. They previously said that behind every successful man there is a woman, today i say infront of every successful man is a queen.For a queen,its better to be criticized for being successful than be criticized for doing nothing.When you educate a queen you educate the whole village but when you educate a man, you educate an individual. The pages of tomorrow are blank. Write your story and forget the past. The Kenyan embassy is there for you, incase you would want an ID, passport , renew passport or any need, know you can reach out to us. God bless you”.
The Ambassador was accompanied by several New England Pastors Ven Peter Gachathi St Pauls Community Lawrence,President Kenya American Pastors Fellowship,Rev.Joseph Waiyaki CCF Lowell,Rev.Dr. Karimi Mumbui Neema Church Lowell,Ven.Samuel Kimohu,St Stephens Church Lowell and Bishop Jeremiah Kibobi Kenya.
The concept of Queens Night was founded by Pastor Joan Wairimu from Kenya. The first Queens Night event was held in Atlanta, Georgia. It is from that one small meeting that the USA President, Pastor Monica Kang’ethe, commissioned by Pastor Joan Wairimu, inherited this ministry and went one to spearhead the growth of the ministry to now 16 chapters in cities all over the USA. Pastor Monica now, the CURRENT FUNCTIONAL VISIONARY USA PRESIDENT has worked in different States to see this vision established including, Kansas City, Boston, Minneapolis, Dallas, Houston, Seattle, Los Angeles, Oklahoma City, Chicago, Houston Texas, St Louis Missouri, to mention a few. To God be all the Glory.
The mission of Queens Night Ministry International is to “Empower women spiritually, physically, and economically; to rebuild the women’s respect and rights as well as to raise her self-esteem and harness her power. When you empower a woman you empower the whole family and subsequently the community.”
Queens Night Ministry’s endeavors to empower women in the Diaspora in spiritual, business and investment opportunities here and back in Kenya, and in all other 360 degree factors of womanhood. Queens Ministry is empowering women economically by connecting queens to banks like Chase bank of Kenya who have the “Chase Woman” and provide loans to women for development at a very low percentage of 9-12%, offering 9 times of any money they have in the account saved as a group. Queens Night Ministry is organized at the grass roots through local chapters hence we are able to reach the women where they are and can be effective in serving their needs. It is with humility we can share that we have testimonies upon testimonies of the impact Queens Night Ministry has had on the many women who have attended.
Each chapter has a cause they support. As such, our other accomplishments are chapter based and a few of them include; One chapter facilitated the building of a home for a needy woman back in Kenya, another chapter is focused on helping women in mental health and facilitating education in that area. We have another chapter that supports a children’s orphanage in Kenya. We have other chapters that have embarked on economic empowerment educating women on economic opportunities here and abroad.
Queens Ministry is reaching a large number of Kenyan citizens living here in the USA. With 16 chapters each attracting an attendance of an average of 200 women per event in one city with several cities far exceeding that number, means that we have a true connection of 3000-5000 women. With most of our women being married and with children, single, working, going to school; makes the Queens Ministry reach a significant pool of Kenyan citizens and probably the only and largest organization to coagulate a significant number of Kenya diaspora women in the USA.
As a ministry, we hope that the Embassy of Kenya would recognize the significance of our organization to the Kenyan community here in diaspora. We would like to see Queens Ministry included as one of the Kenyans Organizations on the Kenya Embassy USA website. We would also like support and cooperation from the Embassy to serve our communities especially when we hold large events and would like to extend services such as ID issuance or Passport Renewal. Queens Ministry is highly respected in the respective cities and is in a position to rally and work with the community to coordinate such Embassy services especially in cities like Kansas City and Boston. As such we would like the Embassy to view our ministry as a partner in service to Kenyans here in the USA.
