Rose Mugwe Munge is the founder and a leader in WFA since 2009. God called Rose when she, and her husband Isaac, were serving as houseparents in a pregnant teens’ shelter program. Rose testifies that it was a very humbling experience to hear God audibly send her to the women. Serving God in this ministry has brought her fulfillment and unspeakable joy. Seeing women’s lives transformed and changed has been her motivation and strength to continue serving. The principle that underlies everything WFA does is: “If Your Presence does not go with us, do not bring us up from here” ( Exodus 33:15-16), and has been Rose’s constant prayer.
She serves with her husband Isaac who together have 3 sons, 3 daughters, many grandchildren and a great grandson.

It has also been his privilege to serve on several nonprofit organizations and is currently a deacon at his church.

Carol came to know the Lord as her personal savior in high school, at the age of 13. She was in her first year of high school at the Kenya High School in Nairobi, when missionaries from Life Ministry, Kenya (Campus Crusade for Christ), came to her school to share the Gospel. Even though she had grown up in a Christian home, she had not yet understood the need for accepting the Savior, and this was explained to her in a clear manner when she joined high school. Carol says, “For me serving the Lord, especially youth and women has been my calling and joy.” She has been involved in youth ministry, serving with Youth for Christ International, Campus Crusade for Christ, Word of Life, and now more recently Women of Faith Alliance. She enjoys talking with young people, motivating them to do better and most of all, extolling them to use their youth and talents to further the kingdom of Christ. WFA has a special place in her heart, for its mission to minister to women by strengthening their faith, and in the process, also broadening their economic prospects so that they can meet the day-to-day needs of their families. Carol finds strength in Romans 8:31-32 – If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own son, but gave him up for us all – how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things.”
Lania inherited a love and connection to East Africa from her grandparents, who served as missionaries in Ethiopia for many years. It is still their family tradition to celebrate holidays by enjoying African food together. In 2001 she was able to travel to Nakuru as part of a ministry partnership between her local church in the States and a Kenyan church. The Lord used that trip to kindle her passion for teaching and working with children. What a "beautiful coincidence" that God would introduce Lania to Rose in 2015 with the invitation to join a ministry she cares deeply about, in a corner of the world that He had already imprinted on her heart. Lania has been an educator in various capacities, with her current role as a homeschool parent to her three young children.
