2011: Day 6

Posted by on Aug 3, 2011 |

Hello from Masii…

This morning we went on a tour of the “dorms” that Tumaini is in the process of building. God is so good and it is incredible to see how He is using this ministry. After the tour we went on “home visits” today. We visited 6 children and their families, and brought 3 months worth of food, your gifts, and played games with the children. All the “home visits” that we do are children that are supported through sponsors at Valley Christian Church. Tumaini International is an amazing ministry that ministers to children that really need help. If you are a sponsor, you need to know that you are a blessing, not only to your child, but to the family that has to care for that particular child.  Every child knows their sponsor and is so thankful for them. This is a very humbling thing to be able to go into peoples homes and see how they live, here their stories, and bring the love of Jesus.  They have so little monitarily, but the have so much hope in Jesus…it is amazing!

We also visited a sewing shop that Tumaini has started with women in the community… women who are HIV positive. They have received training, equipment, and a store front and are now a self sustaining business. They make school uniforms, dresses, shirts and anything else you can think of, including….dashikis!! (if you don’t know what a dashiki is…it’s the shirts we are wearing)

Everyone is doing great…and allowing God to use us anyway He chooses!
