Beneath the moonlight communion was being prepared. It was Easter week in Tharaka and the kids were looking forward to taking communion for the first time.
Armed with Nakumatt grape juice, small plastic shot glasses and Manji cream crackers, I was ready for an anointed evening.
The moment we finished communion, the skies opened up and the rain began to pour, matching the words to the song we had been playing, “I’m the Lamb that was slain, and My blood washes you clean. I’m the pure sacrifice, let my life give You life, I’m the Lamb.”
We made a mad dash from under the tent to the dorm rooms. Did the plate of leftover crackers stay dry? I spread them out on a tin plate in front of a fan. It would be a waste in Tharaka to throw away crackers just because they were a little damp.
All throughout the week, I reminded our children and staff about the reason we celebrate Easter. Our precious Lord and Savior has redeemed us from the curse of sin by freely giving His life for us. This moment would not have been possible without your giving!
My group carried a family of four children, Grace, Sophia, Wilson, Naphtali and their Auntie in our Nissan truck. We had to drive through two rivers then walk a kilometer uphill in the mud while carrying the maize and beans on our backs.
It is good to go on a home visit to be reminded of why we help these kids and to see the Great Commission at work.
When you sponsor a child their life is not the only one that will be transformed, yours will be too. Give your best gift today!
We are eternally grateful,
