Steven Saitabau was one of 23 that were baptized in one Kenyan parish the first weekend of October 2008. Nine years old, he had lived half is life without a Catholic parish nearby. 

The parish of Ewuaso Kedong, a small trading town where Steven lives, opened in 2004 and covers 40 miles of the bush southwest of Nairobi, where zebra graze along with the cattle herded by the still very traditional Maasai tribe. It is young and growing, just like the Catholic Church in Kenya.
