Francis, one of our children, had a hard time believing a promise God told him in the desert several years ago. Francis is one of only a few children of ours who did not come from living in the landfills of Lodwar. He was a young shepherd boy living over two hours away from our New Hope Center when a local missionary found him on the brink of death. Neglected by his guardians, Francis was said to be emaciated, dehydrated and fighting to survive. When the
missionary offered to bring him to New Hope Children, Francis knew his caretakers would say “no” to him leaving his duties there and almost gave up hope. Then suddenly, he heard God’s voice, “go and ask your guardians, I have gone
before you and have put a yes in their mouths.” With trepidation and confusion Francis obeyed and went to their hut to ask. It was a “Yes”!
Francis is one of the most enthusiastic, grateful, hard working students you will ever meet and his story is a beautiful example of God’s fulfilled promises to His children. He is getting excellent grades and excels in football as well!
