God has been so faithful. When we first visited Christlike Academy, we counted nearly 80 children. Now, at the start of 2018, we have 374 children coming to Christlike Academy!
The most wonderful part of this news is, although the numbers are increasing, the cost to support those children is not increasing as exponentially as it should. This is because there are a large number of parents in the Misiri Slums who are working to provide some financial support for their children to be able to attend Christlike.
Partners, not only are you partnering with Feed.Teach.Hope., you are partnering with parents, as they begin to see the difference Christlike is making and as they come alongside you and Feed.Teach.Hope. to help their children gain an education, nutrition, and an opportunity to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ!
Your support continues to provide the love of Christ to real people, with real difficulties. Medrine Njeri Ndichu, a 9 year old girl attending Christlike Academy, lives with a hole in her heart. She is extremely weak and cannot afford to undergo reparative surgery. She came to Christlike on January 3, 2018 after the death of her mom, Muthoni. Her father is paralyzed in one leg and cannot work and her grandma is also poor and unconcerned with her granddaughter.
Little girls like Medrine are hearing the gospel for the first time, receiving nutrition and affection they otherwise wouldn't, and are obtaining an education - all because you are faithfully stewarding what God is giving you.
Partners, Thank you so much.
We thank God for you and for your faithfulness to Him.
