Sharon Oire – 16-year-old girl found in the street in 2019

Sharon had a single parent. She stayed with her mother who was a single parent in Kibera slams at Nairobi. Her mother was homeless and when she died in the year 2018 August. She was buried in the cemetery.

Sharon was adopted by a person who volunteered to take care of her. This person was known as Mary Mbera. Mary also had 2 sons and 3 daughters who she stayed with here in Kibera Slams, Now Sharon became part of this family. Sharon enjoyed staying with the family of Mary but at the fourth month it became so complicated!!

The family of Mary being accompanied by Sharon also started a journey to attend Christmas festive season back at the village.  Sharon did not know the location of Mary’s village home but she was equally happy to know the place and also to belong in that family. It was heart breaking to Sharon to be left in Nyamache bus stop when they arrived here in Kisii!!!

Mary asked Sharon to come down from the bus and she gave Sharon Ksh 1000, whereby she instructed Sharon to buy some loafs of bread. First however, she was to wait with the money until Mary reached home and would call Sharon, telling how many loafs of bread she should buy. Mary lied to Sharon that motorbike of her brother was to pick this girl Sharon at Nyamache bus stop and take her home with the breads!!

Sharon stayed in this bus stop waiting for the call from Mary but this woman never called!! When it was heading to late evening Sharon used a stranger’s phone to call Mary but the call was not reachable. She tried calling several times but it was offline! Sharon stayed in the booking office of the bus six days expecting to reach Mary through the phone but things were not working!! The phone of Marry went off permanently!!

Sharon used the Ksh 1000 to buy food and after six days of staying outside in a hostile environment the money was gone and she started wondering in the streets!! This is where we meet her on date 9 January 2019, and opted to rescue her after being touched with her sad experience, beginning from her story of traveling from Nairobi to Kisii without her knowledge that it was an evil scheme to her!!

We had done with evangelism and now we came with Sharon in the orphanage. She is humbled and extremely thankful to receive support in the orphanage through Pastor Donald and the church of Kenya. She likes singing and she has a passion to safe many souls through her talent. God bless pastor Donald for the wonderful help he sends to our log orphanage Kenya.


Daniel Nyangieya – 17-year-old boy, found rejected in 2019

Daniel lived together with his parents at Nyabioto shopping center near our location Sengera. His parents James and Mary are said to have come to this village shopping center from Nyansara where they lived for eight years.

The family background of Nyangieya‘s parents was not known at all since their dwelling was based in rental houses, although Daniel used to sleep in a separate house from the family rental house. In fact, this boy received all meals and necessities in the house of the parents but in the evening after supper, he went to sleep in his neighbor’s house.

He would wake up earlier in the morning and walk to the house of his parents to get breakfast and other daily needs. The parents were supporting their son Daniel, but there was no sleeping room for him. Hence he found somewhere to sleep in a friend’s house.

It was Sunday morning on date 27th the year 2019 when his parents were attacked at around 11pm at night and they were shot dead!! Some neighbors came to rescue them when they heard a sound of gun from their living house but they found dead bodies and the criminals who did this killings had ran away!!

Their bodies were buried in the cemetery and the government officials vowed to do investigation of the matter for Justice, but they have not come up with the information of this killing to date!! Now everyone feared to live with this young boy Daniel, since they did not know what caused the gun shoot to both his parents!!

On 31st January (after four days) we meet with Daniel being psychologically tortured and terribly crying for the rejection he had gone through!! He explained to us how he lost his caring parents. We also found the same information from people of Nyabioto village and we managed to allow this boy join the orphanage at least to give him hope and courage.

Daniel is humbled to be taken care of through the support of Pastor Donald and USA church. He is equally thankful to pastor Joel and the church of Kenya for showing him love and care.

He is a talented young footballer and he also likes dancing in church. Besides these talents he wants to become a pastor after school. Surely we has seen the great love of God in the orphanage through pastor Donald, Log church USA and friends who contribute to support us.

There are some words that tend to bring about within us an immediate negative or defensive reaction. The word obey is one of these words. A child is often introduced to this word brusquely, accompanied with a wagging index finger in his face from a harsh parent. “You obey me, now!”

The word command may be another, and “I order you to do it!”

One of the first words many children learn is the word no. The child wants to do something or have something, but Mommy and Daddy say no! We learn that we must obey.

Since our first reactions to these words may be largely negative, the words themselves have come to have a negative connotation. In the military, we learn the proper response to an order. Obedience. It is not important in the least if we want to fulfill the order or not, or even whether or not it is a good order. We really have no choice in the matter.

With this backdrop in the formation of our personalities, we then have the danger of having the same frame of mind when we read these words, “You shall therefore obey the LORD your God, and do His commandments and His statutes which I command you today” (Deuteronomy 27:10 NAS).

We think of other stern verses such as this:

Vincent Makori, 13-year-old boy found in the street in 2016

His parents lived with him in Eldoret town at the rental houses until they unfortunately died from HIV/AIDS. Days after the death of both parents the landlord decided to adopt this boy. He stayed with the boy for 1 year and later chased him away. One of the caretakers also adopted him to his family but the caretaker died 2 year later.

After this the boy joined street children. When we had an evangelism we met him being hopeless and helpless we were moved to take him under our care. Vincent is appreciating God for the Log Orphanage.

He always says, “Really God is the father to the fatherless, he gives home to the homeless.”

He says that he doesn’t even remember the death of his parents compared to what God has done in his life. He likes singing and he has a passion to train more choirs that will give God glory through singing.

He is courageous to stand alone at his age and bless the church with at least a song in every service we meet to worship God!

Thanks pastor Donald; Log Church USA and friends who send your money to help us here in log orphanage Kenya to achieve in life.


Clinton Kijana, 13-year-old boy found in the street in 2018

This boy, being a total orphan, lived with his aunt. During our street evangelism, he was following us, but when the aunt heard that the child was with us in the gospel field, she came and took him beating and dragging him all the way back home.

We later realized that his aunt was a devil worshipper and from that day this aunt started mistreating this child, because she did not want to hear about Jesus and he wanted to distract this kid Clinton from the faith!!

In the year 2018 we found this child coming to the orphanage by himself seeking for help. Clinton had joined street life after total rejection by his aunt. We adopted him because we know the situation that forced him to the street.

One year later his aunt died while Clinton was already taken care of in the orphanage. The family background of this child is not known by anyone. This boy Clinton always walks with small bible and sometimes he gathers kids of his age in the orphanage compound trying to act as pastor preaching and laying hands on these children saying that. “I am  pastor Joel.”

This boy gives thanks to God whenever we ask him to say something concerning his new life in the orphanage. He gives thanks for shelter, food, clothing and education. The boy says that after school he will go to live with Pastor Donald and preach to the white people who have touched his life through sending donations!!

He makes us to laugh through his speech! We always feel happy and encourage him to work hard in school so that he can know how to preach English at that time if God will confirm his dream. Amazing!!! God bless Pastor Donald for raising funds to support our lives as the children of log orphanage.

What we know about love is incomplete. This was our conclusion from the sermon from last week.

Frankly, our experience in the world can teach us very little about love, and most of what we learn from the world is either misleading or false. Even that which has been told to us in Scripture is merely partial.

Paul tells us that what we can know about love at this time is like looking at a steamed-up mirror. We may be able to see some sort of vague outline of love, but the details so far are hidden from us.

“For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away.”

But of course, we being the type of people we are, even with all of this uncertainty of knowing about love, it does not stop us from speaking as if we were experts. We talk as if we have all of the insights and know the depths of what love is.

A teenage girl, who has just started dating, asks her mother, or a son his father, “How do you know if you love someone?”

Brian Ombati: 17 year old boy found rejected in 2016

Brian was born out of wedlock and his parents started wrangles because of his birth outside marriage. His mother was chased by her husband and the child became rejected. But due to his mother loved him he went to stay with her in Kisii town. However, by bad lack his mother died of liver cancer and left him.

We found him during our crusade having nowhere to go and decided to take him under our care to give him hope. Initially before we adopted him, he used to sleep in the nearby Nyabioto primary school where he used one of the classrooms to be his sleeping place at night. He had to leave early in the morning before children arrived at school.

Brian then started roaming in the village day time looking for food to eat from good Samaritans. Brian likes quoting that “maybe it was not the plan of man for him to be born but he has come to believe that in the mind of God he was to be born and nobody could stop him from being born”.

This boy tells other children in the orphanage that as Moses was sent by God to rescue the children of Israel the same way pastor Donald was sent to Kenya to rescue the hopeless kids like him.

He says that he will also ask God to give him an opportunity and heart of helping many in future when he is capable after school. He always says that he must try the best he can to extend hand of support to some kids who will be suffering rejection like he used to when he becomes stable in life.

May the merciful God stand with the families that donate their wonderful help to us through Pastor Donald of Log church USA.


Ibrahim Onduso: 17 year old boy found in the street in 2016

Ibrahim was raised up by a single mother and they used to live where the mother worked, but unfortunately when post-election violence took place his mother was killed and a neighbor adopted him. However, at the end the neighbor abandoned him, and when he became desperate, he went to the street and became a street boy.

By the fact that his mother was single and did not own any property of land to help Ibrahim settle there, this boy was really lacking a place to belong. His family background is not known by anyone around. No one could help him until we rescued him from street life.

This boy Ibrahim is now thankful that he belongs to log orphanage family by the mercy of God and he can testify that he can see a bright future that God has prepared for him through the good care in the orphanage.

He is a young evangelist and he wants to reach more souls after school in the near future. God bless every hand that gives to help us continue with life in the orphanage.

“I intend now to show you a far better way. In fact, I will show you the most excellent way.”

That is how 1 Corinthians 12 ends. Paul had been speaking of the ministries given to the church, and the “gifts,” as he calls them, that are given to individuals within the church in order to carry out these ministries.

These gifts are given by the Holy Spirit. They are enabling ministries, and include such things as the gift of apostleship, the gift of prophecy, and the gift of teaching or working miracles. There are gifts of healing, of helping, of administration, and the ability to speak in diverse tongues.

These are all gifts given to various individuals by the Spirit of Christ in order to act on behalf of Jesus among the broader church and in the world. They are important abilities; without them, the work of Jesus could not continue. That is why Paul says that we should “desire” these gifts. The word for desire is actually zéloó, the word that comes down to us as “zealous,” meaning that we should seek these gifts of the spirit zealously.

And so, in large part, we as a church throughout history sought these gifts. In fact, we have established entire institutions to teach us how to carry out these ministries. On the more local level, we read books and organize Bible studies to teach us about many of these works of the Spirit.

But having these gifts and these ministries is not the highest calling of a Christian. There yet exists a higher calling, a far better way. In fact, as Paul calls it, it is “the most excellent way.” It is perhaps the greatest failure of the church throughout history that we have not focused on this highest calling.

And what is this “most excellent way?”

If we turn one page in our Bibles to the opening of 1 Corinthians 13, we see what it is:

The old man looked at me solidly in the face as he spoke, “The ancient Incas did not commonly use the personal pronouns I or me,” he said to me. “It was the Spaniards that brought this concept of such individualism.”

The man with whom I was speaking was himself a Quechua—the name that the people of the old Inca Empire called themselves. We were standing on a street in Cusco, in Peru.

Cusco is the oldest continually inhabited city in the Western Hemisphere, dating back at least one thousand years and probably much more. It was to that city and to the Andes Mountains that rose above the city that the Spaniards came five hundred years ago in an attempt to annihilate the Quechua nation—the Incas.

My Quechua friend continued, “The Incas most often used the plural pronoun we,” he told me. “The people of that time saw themselves as part of one nation and not merely as many individuals.”

I wondered about the practicality of what he was telling me. “What if a man was thirsty?” I asked the old man. “Would he not say, ‘I would like a drink of water’?”
