Your time and donations made all the difference in changing the lives of vulnerable youth in Kenya. THANK YOU to all who made the New Hope Centre possible! We need to give a special shout out to C4A our grant organization, New Wine Family Church & church family, Houston's First Church, and to Taylor Kilpatrick who spent countless volunteer hours organizing our building project in Kenya and abroad. Asante sang (Thank you) again to all who contributed.
You know who you are and the plaque on the Centre's entrance wall is for you!
"One, Two, Three - New Hope Heroes!" We ran through my makeshift duct tape ribbon and into the Centre doors followed by our Kenyan staff, board members, speakers and leaders of the community - all there to celebrate the children and the Opening Day of their new home - the New Hope Centre.
It's hard to describe the lively experience of impromptu praise. A cappella voices rising in unison and harmony praising God for His provision and goodness. Clapping and dancing so our bodies can match the gratefulness of our hearts. Major goosebumps. Once the praise died down I found myself joining the children and others on the floor, down on bended knee in prayer, then prostrating ourselves before our glorious Provider. Tears of joy streaming down, amazed at how far God has carried our tiny organization so these beloved children of His can have a chance. What a day! My only regret is that more weren't there to experience it with me.
If you ever feel the call to come - come! Come and see and experience for yourself. Join me anytime. If not, I hope you can join in our mission to change vulnerable children's lives for the better.
