Olturot MOHI update

Praise the Lord! Greetings to you, our friends and partners. We are grateful to God for his unfailing love as we continue working in Olturot. The Lord has done marvelous things in our lives and the Olturot community at large. The MOHI team is working passionately to see that the community experiences Christ’s love. Thanks for partnering with us.

Hope transforms!

Namira Narwa Lewangan is a kindergarten boy in our Olturot school. His mother, who is young, moved away to an unknown place because she was uncomfortable living with her elderly husband. The boy was left with his father, who is sick and elderly. Due to their high poverty level, even at Namira’s older age, he still had not been enrolled in school. Instead, Namira worked each day tending to livestock.

Namira heard of MOHI’s Olturot school and approached the social worker. He requested to be given a chance to study. The social worker conducted a home visit and talked to the father. He was adamant that no one other than Namira could take care of his animals. This didn't stop the social worker from continuing to visit the family, and after several times the father agreed to release the child. A friend paid his commitment fees and he was enrolled in school.

The boy is very grateful to MOHI for saving him from being a shepherd boy (tending livestock). He is doing very well in school and his future looks so bright. He wants to be a pilot when he grows up.

Term highlights

All the students enjoyed being in school this term. They participated well in all programs, including the Saturday Mentorship Program and outdoor sport activities. Generally, the entire Olturot family is doing well and we are grateful to God.
The center started on May 2, 2018, and already has 112 children from pre-primary to first grade. A majority are still not sponsored. We are trusting God for their sponsorship.
