This is a sample of the new format
May – July 2021 (Term 3)
We give glory to God for helping us complete the third term of the 2021 school year. Here are some of the successes and highlights we want to share with you.
Total Enrolled: 355 students
Total Unsponsored: 185 students
We are so grateful for your support and partnership as we continue working together to transform lives through the hope of Christ. God bless you.
Sponsor a Child at Bondeni school
For $38/month, or roughly $1.25 a day, you can make a direct and profound difference in a child’s life. Your sponsorship ensures that your sponsored child receives an excellent Christian education, nutritious food, medical care, and the opportunity to hear the life-changing message of Jesus Christ.
Patricia is a grade eight student at the Missions of Hope International (MOHI) Kosovo center which she joined in 2016 as a grade three student. The 14-year-old is the eldest and together with her two other siblings (who are also students at our school), they live with their single mother.
It has been a challenge for the mother to provide for her family and before Patricia joined MOHI, she would stay home due to lack of school fees. The children also appeared malnourished and they were living in very unsanitary conditions. After we enrolled Patricia into the school, her social worker started making frequent visits to the home to speak with the mother. She appeared depressed, overwhelmed by all her responsibilities and like she had given up – leaving her children to get help from well wishers. We continued making regular visits, talking to her and praying for her and in time we noticed a change in her attitude.
She started going out to look for casual jobs and then using whatever she made to take care of her children. She followed everything we told her about cleanliness in the home, proper nutrition and parental responsibilities.
There has been a real improvement in the home compared to when we first went there. Patricia and her siblings are well settled in school and they are doing well. Patricia is a disciplined student who is focused on her studies as she works towards her dream of being a teacher in the future. Their mother has also given her life to Christ and the entire family is very active in their local church.
We really thank God for the transformation witnessed in this family.
- We introduced a photography club and it already has 7 members. We take photo trips once a month and are teaching the children how to operate the camera.
- MOHI’s mentorship team organized a teacher/mentee training that was held on January 15th. This was to offer support to our learners who may be in need of counseling. Plans to have weekly training, career talks and life skill sessions were put into place.
- We are proud to have participated in the sub-county athletics competition that took place this term. We came first place in the competition and our 22 students qualified for the county competitions.
- On January 10th, we had a visit from members of Summit Christian Church. They attended the Sunday service with the learners and afterward a tour of the school was conducted.
- We were pleased to have West Side Christian Church who led our students through VBS. They also helped set up a library that our learners can now use for reference.
- We thank God for the team from Mountain Christian Church who held a medical camp at our center. A total of 100 community members were attended to and they were grateful for the medical advice and medication they received.
- Kindly pray for the families we serve, especially during this dry season. Most of the families have moved to far-off areas in search of pasture for their animals. This has affected their children’s education since they are not able to come to class.
- Join us as we pray for the continued provision of finances to enable us complete all pending construction projects.
- Pray for the Kariobangi community that it will receive empowerment and holistic transformation as we continue to touch lives with the love of Christ.
Outreach Hope Church
The church continues to grow as we reach out to the communities we serve. We rejoice as we see lives transformed and decisions made for Christ. Glory and honor to our God.
Pastor Peter, Peter
- We held a three-week sermon series on the Book of Romans. It was a time of great refreshing as we looked at the many truths contained in this book.
- We had a number of activities including new believers’ classes, baptism classes and after which five (5) of our church members were baptized.
- Both men and women fellowships had successful meetings. Out of these, we are able to identify the needs of our church members and also offer personalized support as needed.
- Some of our church members are struggling to provide for their families. Please join us in praying that the Lord will grant them favor as they head out each morning in search of jobs.
- One of our church members (Tom Ouma) was recently diagnosed with cancer. We are trusting God for his healing, for providence and special grace upon him and his family at this difficult time.
- Pray for us that we will go forth in boldness to evangelize our community. Due to the high Muslim community in this area, we often encounter hostility when we venture out.
Center Specific Needs
- Dormitories that will help us put even more students into the boarding program. We currently have students who walk many miles to and from school each day and this has an impact on their school attendance.
- A perimeter wall around our center to keep out intruders during school hours and to keep our school safe at night.
- Additional desks because the ones we have right now are simply not enough compared to the student population we have. Many are also old, broken and need to be replaced
- Following the Covid-19 pandemic, Kenya’s Academic calendar has been changed. Typically May to July would be our second term but as it were, this is term three (3). Our students are set to move on to the next class end of July until December (that will be the school’s Term 1).
- Covid1-19 protocols continue to be observed. We have set up hand-washing stations, temperatures are checked at the gate and we encourage both staff and students to keep their masks on at all times.
