Dear partners and friends,

Greetings in Jesus' name. We appreciate the almighty God for how far He has brought us this term. It was a very busy season for us with so many events, but God has seen us through. We also appreciate our partners and friends for choosing to work alongside us as we hold hands to pursue the mission that God has called us to do in his kingdom.
 

Blessings,

Charity Mwangi

Hope transforms!

Alice* is a Pangani community member and a MOHI parent. She was living with a man who left her pregnant and infected with the HIV virus. She started looking for medical attention and was taken in by her elderly grandmother, who was also suffering from HIV. Alice, by the grace of God, managed to give birth to a healthy baby boy in the year 2002. Over the years, Alice went through various seasons of sickness and joblessness.

In 2008, a friend shared with Alice about MOHI. She joined a MOHI Post-Test Club (PTC), where she was able to acquire skills in soap- and detergent-making. She was also able to join the group’s microfinance program.

The PTC gave Alice a loan of $50 in the year 2013, from which she was able to start a small business along the side of the road. The business currently supports her livelihood. Alice’s son is a sophomore at MOHI’s boarding high school. Alice is currently able to pay her house rent and support her son’s education because of her business.

Alice is also the current treasurer of the Post-Test Club (PTC), which meets at MOHI’s Pangani center every Wednesday. In 2013, during Community Health Evangelism (CHE) home visits and outreach, she decided to commit her life to the Lord. She was then linked with Outreach Hope Church Pangani, where she was discipled by the pastor. She later joined the youth ministry and the choir.

We thank God for his work in transforming the life of Alice.

Term highlights

Our students participated in music festivals with other schools from throughout the country. Categories included music, poetry and drama. The students made it to the national level, which was encouraging to them and to the teachers.

The students went on field trips that were funded by the parents. We are encouraged by the parent’s support and involvement.

The eighth-grade students went on a trip to Kenyatta University. The trip was designed to motivate them to do well in school and seek higher education after graduation.

The school leadership, along with a few teachers, visited two high-performing schools in the country as part of an exchange program. They were able to get ideas and learn different strategies on how to improve performance in our school.

Working together for transformation

Eastside Christian Church helped take all the fourth-grade students to the Nairobi’s safari park, where they were able to see wild animals. They also visited families that were affected by a recent fire. They carried cooked food, shared, and evangelized to the families. They also gave them basic household items.

Parkview Christian Church conducted a VBS with an emphasis on fire safety. They also trained our staff on fire safety. They also evangelized and fumigated homes in the community.

Please join us in prayer

  • For our eighth-grade students who will be taking their Kenya National Examinations at the end of the year. This determines their transition from primary school to high school.

  • For God's provision and protection over our students, their families and our staff during the school term break.

  • For God's provision towards the finishing of our Pangani exterior wall and painting. The finishing will give Pangani a new look.

133 students at the Pangani school are unsponsored.
