Hakima is an Arabic word meaning wisdom; but it is more than just a word; it is a phrase which is translated as “the journey of a pure heart.” God has given us a vision that is much bigger than us. Proverbs 25:2 says, “It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings.” We are very excited about what God is doing, and what He is about to do here in Kenya.
Dan and Salome Jacobs are missionaries serving with Hakima Ministries in Kenya. Dan came to Kenya in 2012 with his wife Dana. Dana fell ill suddenly in late 2016 and passed away in January 2017. In April 2018, Dan met with Salome, who had been a family friend for 5 years, about helping with his daughter Hope. The friendship suddenly kindled into a relationship and in September of 2018, Dan and Salome were married here in Kenya. Salome comes from a family who has lived their lives in the service of God through cross-cultural missions and church planting. She served many times at the Baby Centre and other children’s institutions in the Nakuru area. She has lived in Rwanda, Uganda and Burundi. Finally settling here in Nakuru 5 years ago.
Dan and Salome share a passion for children, and particularly Special Needs Children. Their calling is to start a Rescue Centre for Orphaned and Abandoned children here in the Nakuru region. Teaming up with the Terry’s, Dan and Salome look forward to seeing how God will use them to further God’s kingdom through Hakima Ministries.
Dan and Salome have a daughter, Hope who is here in Kenya with them. The Jacobs’ also have four grown children and three grandchildren back in the States.
