FOUND: IN THE STREET
YEAR SHE CAME TO
THE ORPHANAGE 2016
was two months after we had rescued a boy by the name of Kemiso David out of
the street and bringing him to the orphanage that he requested us that we may
go and pray for the three other kids that used to be with him before in the
street. We went there for prayers with our prayer team but we did not find all
the three kids in street but only Jackline was there. The other two street kids
had gone to join other street children in the next sub-county called Nyamarambe
to search for food since the environment where they used to stay was becoming
hostile with inadequate food left overs and they were rarely fed by strangers
in the town.
did not follow them to Nyamarambe but we prayed for the young girl Jackline. We
bought her some snacks and provided her with two clothes. But at the time when
we were leaving she terribly cried that we should not leave her alone in the
street and she was very tired with street life, she told us that if we were not
to go with her she would simply kill herself by taking poison later on after we
only option was to bring Jackline to our orphanage. Jackline is happy and
thankful for the orphanage environment where she is being provided with
shelter, food, clothing and she is glad to join school like other kids of her
age. She likes singing and always tells us to pray for her that in future she would be a gospel artist who
can bless the nations with good singing and praising God through her voice.
likes to quote that “with God all things are possible”.

FOUND : FROM THE STREET DURING EVANGELISM
YEAR HE CAME TO THE ORPHANAGE 2018
One Friday Evening
when we were heading home from house to house evangelism at Riteke village we
met Moses lying beside the road. There was a huge crowd surrounding him just
watching his unconscious body down on the ground.
We also stood with
pastor Vincent and Janet our praise and worship leader, when we inquired we
were told that the boy Moses was a street boy and in the previous two weeks, he
was seen that his health was not good but that day it worsened!!! The market
people were there just watching him die because everyone feared taking him to
the hospital thinking about what will happen if he will die on their hands!!
We over stayed
there within the crowd hoping that a
good Samaritan will volunteer to carry
the responsibility of taking this
helpless boy to the hospital but unfortunately no one was ready for that!!! All
of a sudden Janet our praise and worship leader touched me on my shoulders and
whispered to me saying “kindly pastor Joel let us take this kid to the hospital
and do not worry he will not die on our hands for the grace of God upon us can
cause healing to the boy.”
finished whispering this on my ears, I only said “No problem let us do our part
and God will do the rest.” We picked the boy Moses from the midst of the crowd
down on the ground and took him to Tabaka Hospital whereby we shared the issue
with the medical officer and he received treatment on debt.
discovered that Moses was suffering from severe pneumonia since he was exposed
to excess coldness there in the street where he slept on the cold floor. On the
third day when we went to visit him in the hospital we were amazed that he had
totally recovered from the disease. We could not manage to settle the bill but
by good luck one of the doctors helped us to clear the bills after discovering
that Moses’ Mother dropped him in this market and lied to him that she went for
some shopping in the super market before they proceed their journey from
Nairobi to up country.
But it is so sad
that this was a way of escape abandoning his son by the roadside while away
from home. This is how the boy started hustling with street life after his
mother failed to return to pick him!!!
Since then it is
almost two years the mother is missing and the family background is not known.
By the advice of the doctors that Moses needs good care and a good sleeping to
avoid more attack from pneumonia and other diseases we found that we were the
only option to take care of Moses then we came with him in the orphanage.
Moses is humbled
for the way God used us to save his dying soul and he is praising God for the
support and love he receives from Pastor
Donald in connection with the church of Kenya Moses likes quoting that he
is a live through the grace of God and
he will live to worship him and serve him with all his strength.
