Land has been purchased!
Today is a great day for 34 children who live in Mathare Slum, their aunties, and Nick and Charles who care for them – land has been purchased for their new home! Thanks to the Carrollton team who raised the funds a beautiful piece of land has been bought. Nick and Charles rose early and with the owner and an attorney representing both sides signed the papers.
Njokie, Pastor Omondi and I joined them at the property. Pastor Omondi prayed for the land thanking God and the Carrollton team for the mighty blessing. The name “rescue center” is now gone. This will be a home where two Christian men are raising children orphaned by the deaths of their parents due to HIV/AIDS. While the land was more than they had hoped ($8,000) it met the criteria:
1. Electrcity hook-up
3. Schools very close – walking distance
4. Close to CT with matatu service so Nick and Charles can go to work
6. Open area so the children can play!
The back has a beautiful view – Nick teased and said he could see elephants!
This week they will prepare plans for building a structure for the children. Soon these children will be moved to a home.
Grateful to the Carrollton team,
