Hope Transforms: A Success Story
Donald is a grade two student at Missions of Hope International (MOHI) Korogocho B center. He has five siblings and together with their parents they live in the KB community.
When we first learned of Donald, we discovered that his family had a lot of conflict. His parents were constantly arguing and fighting and this led them to separate for some time. Although his father’s business is doing well, he was unwilling to provide for his family and the mother – who was a housewife – was unable to provide for the children. They would sleep hungry and were identified as being malnourished and underweight.
While Donald’s commitment fee remained unpaid for a while, we kept him in school. We, however, soon learned that his older siblings – who were in high school and not in the MOHI program – were out of school due to school fees arrears. We conducted several visits to the mother and father to determine what the problem was and soon discovered that there was poor communication between them. The father claimed he felt completely disrespected by his wife and that she had taught the children to also be disrespectful towards him.
Over a period of time, we took time to counsel the couple on how to communicate better and resolve conflict and also the importance of not shunning their parental responsibilities. We are happy to report that the parents are now reconciled and are working at improving their communication. The father has also been providing for his family without fail and has since paid the pending commitment fee in full. Their mother has been working closely with our Community Health Evangelism (CHE) team and the children now look healthy and well-fed. As matters get resolved at home, we have seen a great improvement in Donald’s studies and he is progressing well academically.
Please join us as we continue to pray for this family’s continued unity. Our desire is to see Donald and his siblings reach their full potential.
- We had two academic clinics/workshops where parents, teachers and students shared the student’s holistic development. These workshops shaped the student’s performance and we have had a good number perform well in their end-term exam.
- We held a prayer meeting for our grade eight candidates together with their parents. We prayed for the learners to do well in the national examination and transition into high school.
- We had a Parents Teachers Association (PTA) meeting that helped us come up with strategies and set term objectives for our learners. We were also able to shed light on measures to curb the spread of Covid-19 in line with Ministry of Health protocols.
- We continue trusting God for protection and intervention against the global Covid-19 pandemic.
- We continue trusting God for the provision of resources to be able to construct tuition blocks and also for the continued academic success of all students enrolled in our program.
- We continue to pray that more community members will come to know the saving grace of Jesus Christ. May the Lord equip us as we go out to evangelize.
