"For the times we have been outside the Marie Stopes headquarters," said Japeth in Nairobi, "their operations have stalled."

As the local 40 Days for Life coordinator, Japeth is encouraged by the growth of the Nairobi campaign.

"The number of people attending the prayers has been increasing consistently. The mood and the support we are getting from the residents of the city is really amazing."

Their objective is a bold one: to instill a pro-life mentality in the entire city.

Japeth tells of a young couple that was about to enter Marie Stopes ... but they turned around and left "after noticing the crowd and the intensity of our prayers."
