The next few pictures may make you smile!
This is what we have been waiting for! This is what you have been praying for! This is what you have given so graciously towards!!
Ask me seven months ago if this would happen and I would have laughed and said, “I wish!”
Calvary Hope School is in the fourth largest slum in Kenya. Our 289 students walk from their homes that have no access to water and electricity. The opportunities are seemingly limited in improving their lives.
And then God works through you! And you go on to give and care about these precious children’s lives and their future!
The opportunities are opened. Their minds expanded!
We started with prayers and “kidogo kidogo”, little by little, ground broke, workers chipped away at stone, dust and sand turned into cement. A day at a time, a safe, well lit room was built. Desks were made and men and women workers earned money to support their families.
You showed love and look what you’ve done, by the grace of God!
Twice a week, our students starting in the Third Grade, get to experience this blessing. Never have they ever been in front of a computer. Now, Teacher Dennis is teaching them the basics of typing, italicizing, formatting, HTML, listing in order, and basic web design will follow. There is no WiFi so as not to be interrupted by games (that may be more fun!) or dangerous sites.
These are skills that will help to advance their learning and future! Computers are not going away and things are constantly changing. Now, our students who are marginalized, somewhat stuck, and sometimes a victim of their circumstances, have a boost.
“Education is the great engine of personal development. It is through education that the daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, that the son of a mine worker can become the head of the mine, that a child of farm workers can become a president of a great nation.” Nelson Mandela
Thank you for helping to make this possible. Thank you for believing in something bigger and better. Thank you for being REAL.
Psalm 118:24 This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it. The beauty of the day is not that it is new, but that we are being made new. The glory of the day is not that it marks a change, but that we are being changed.
God bless you and thank you for being part of the story God is writing in Kenya!
