Today, President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden are hosting President William Ruto and First Lady Rachel Ruto of the Republic of Kenya for a State Visit to the White House.

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre stated the visit marks “the 60th anniversary of U.S.-Kenya diplomatic relations and will celebrate a partnership that is delivering for the people of the United States and Kenya.“

She continued, “The visit will strengthen our shared commitment to advance peace and security, expand our economic ties, and stand together in defense of democratic values. The leaders will discuss ways to bolster our cooperation in areas including people-to-people ties, trade and investment, technological innovation, climate and clean energy, health, and security. The visit will affirm our strategic partnership with Kenya and further the vision set forth at the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit: African leadership is essential to addressing global priorities.“

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For discernment for President Biden as he engages in discussions with President Ruto.
  • For the two heads of state as they consider ways to strengthen cooperation and investment.
  • For U.S. officials to be wise in their efforts to engage leaders from African countries regarding technology and economy.
