Hello, my name is Jacob. I come from a childhood full of tragedy, loss, and death... Today I am experiencing new life in Christ. I am so very, very thankful to God for all the sponsors of CCMI...
In 2007, my father was attacked and killed during inter-tribal post-election violence. During the same attack, my mother was raped and infected with HIV. Devastatingly, she lost the battle with HIV/AIDS in 2011... The staff of CCMI fed me and cared for me. They gave me a safe place to sleep and taught me how to read and reason. They gave me hope...
Rejoice with me over God’s provision and faithfulness. Through you, God has met our every need before we knew them...
From the depth of my heart, thank you for showing care for our precious orphans and staff in the name Jesus, whom we love with all our being. My spirit is deeply moved by the way you have stood with us through thick and thin over the recent months and even years. For that, I thank you with all my heart
In November of every year, all schools close. There are very little academic activities in Kenya. In my community (Migori), there are more physical activities: preparing land for planting, traditional male circumcision, playing soccer, and many other festivals associated with the Christmas season. One of our orphans who always looks forward to the holiday season is Duncan Alumasa.
For the first time ever, we were able to get a $500 loan from a small microfinance organization. We applied for this loan because we needed to take my wife to the Kisii hospital for the back problem; we also needed to get some little food for the orphans and at least three bags of fertilizers for our current crops.
Bwana Asifiwe! (Praise the Lord!)
We have been able to successfully build two new classrooms for Christ Care Academy. After purchasing supplies on August 4th, 2014, we are finally finished with construction. The classrooms are usable now!
Check out the gallery to see some of the pictures of the construction process.
Last Sunday, August 20th 2014, Bridges Community Church in Los Altos, California hosted a special luncheon to update its members on the needs and stories of the children in Christ Care Children's Home and Christ Care Academy.As a result of the luncheon, over $4,000 was raised to provide for the urgent needs of CCMI.
