Never has our community in Molo experienced the Christmas wave of love in such a gigantic magnitude as they experienced it during our 2016 end of year party in Molo! The House of Hope compound was lit with a sparkle of glee from the beautiful faces that came to celebrate with us. Faces grinning with hope; is what greeted us immediately anyone set foot at the House of Hope.
This is the vivid picture that we had in mind when we set our feet in Molo, in that; to paint the beautiful faces in this community that had been saddened and disillusioned, with love and hope in Christ! This year; we had three of our young adults join University, 5 others joining college, 6 of attaining high scores in their national exams and will be joining High School next year. A good number of our guardians this year were empowered with sewing skills. This gladly enabled them to make extra money to support their families and celebrate Christmas in a very unique way. These reasons called for a celebration, for a good year we have finished strong with Christ!
The Christmas tree and the neatly arranged seats inside the tent highly set the mood and created a perfect ambiance for our Christmas celebration. The children were elated with not only the presence of Father Christmas, but also the presence of their favorite super hero who came to save the day and ensured that they had he delivered to them the best Christmas ever packed with joy, songs and laughter that echoed and rented the air for the better part of the day.
Did we mention the food part? Wait for it!!! The children were treated to sumptuous meals, which signified their status as sons and daughters of the King of Kings! The meal was prepared by our staff in Kenya, as a way of thanking our community for the unwavering support this great year!
The children were given their packages of new school uniforms made by our guardians and a new pair of the best school shoes and socks in Kenya, original from Bata shoe company. The guardians were also given Christmas packages. We were also honored to have the Nakuru county children officer Mr. Yusuf Abdi visit to celebrate with us. He urged they guardians to love and protect their children and also helped our children Grisphine and Julia cut the Christmas cake.
We wish to thank everyone who has made this chapter of our 2016 walk in Kenya memorable, we are looking forward to an equally memorable 2017 chapter. We are forever grateful to our sponsors for spreading the love of Christ to our community in Molo, thus giving them a reason to smile every Christmas with their wonderful families. Merry Christmas and a Prosperous 2017!!!
