Settling In At Busia

"Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you." Isaiah 32:17

It’s been a busy and exciting transition into the new year! As you know from our previous update, we relocated the Children’s Home to Busia, in Northwest Kenya. We thank the Lord for guiding and protecting us in this move.

While we raise funds to build the dormitories on our property, we have settled into our temporary, rented home. All the children are now in their new schools and excited to meet new friends. Our connection with the local church has been beneficial - the children are helping out in worship, skits, and opportunities for service.

This move came right in time to harvest our corn and beans. You can see for yourselves the smiling faces, affirming what a fun time this was for staff and children. For the children, it was an opportunity to learn a new skill that will benefit them beyond the present, and it gave them the satisfaction of contributing to the home. For all of us, we see it as an answer to prayer, and a big step forward in becoming self-sustaining.

God is faithful, and we give him all the praise! Thank you for keeping us in your prayers during this transition - it makes all the difference.

Since relocating to Busia, there are new children being rescued from dire situations, and successfully entering Uzima Children’s Home. We thank God for the privilege of looking after these little ones, and in the upcoming newsletters we will share more of their stories.

Prayer Requests:

  • Please thank God with us for the smooth transition to Busia, and the favor He has granted us with the local Children’s Department, church, and schools.

  • Pray the children continue to adapt well to the new environment.

  • Pray for the new children entering our home.

  • Our outreach team and rehabilitation program are still going strong in Nairobi. Please remember to lift them up in your prayers - that God will minister in and through them.

  • Please pray for God to provide the necessary funds needed to build the dormitories, and more income generating projects on our land.
