Hope transforms!

Susan Atieno is 12 years old and lives in Gitathuru with her single mother, Pamela Adhiambo. The mother is a drunkard with no job, but the MOHI Spiritual Development Officer (SDO) is working with her and is trusting God for her salvation. Susan has three siblings, including an older brother, a younger sister and a five-month-old baby sister.
 
The elder brother was adopted by their mother’s friend to so he could be sent to school. Susan’s younger sister has reached school age, but she doesn’t go because she has been babysitting her baby sister while their mother goes to look for casual jobs. Susan did not join school when she was old enough because she was working to get money to buy food. She used to babysit young children in the neighborhood for the money. She did this for some time until a MOHI social worker made a home visit. After assessing the situation in the house, the social worker recruited Susan into the MOHI program and she was able to join the preschool class. At that point she was sad, withdrawn, hungry and very harsh to the other classmates because of the age difference. After going through our program and continuous exposure to the gospel through morning devotions, she changed and started being friendly to fellow classmates and generally became accepting of school. Now, she is in kindergarten and she has started attending Sunday school at Outreach Hope Church - Mandera. Their mother has asked the Spiritual Development Officer to come to her house to go to church with her.

Term highlights

  • The school was able to construct a bathroom with five toilets at the beginning of the term. This has made administration of the school easier and eased the congestion waiting on available toilets. 
  • The school has been having monthly trainings for teachers on “Love and Logic.” Our Head Teacher had the opportunity to attend a two-day workshop for head teachers from across the country.

Working together for transformation

  • Flipside Church provided a medical camp that reached 667 patients. They also did a teachers’ training and held a soccer tournament for the whole school. The students enjoyed burgers cooked by the team! (At left)
  • Parkcrest Christian Church put on a VBS and spent time visiting homes in the community. One person committed his life to Christ!
  • Amity Christian Church held a vision clinic and gave eyeglasses to the students and community members that needed them.

Please join us in prayer

  • For protection of students and staff during the school term break. 
  • For the provision of funds to enable the school to construct a permanent building.
  • For the leadership of the school so that the school will continue performing well academically.
