What an awesome first day at Shangilia! It was so amazing driving in today and seeing all the children sing and dance for us! We are so thankful to be here, and we thank God for bringing us here safely! (Lisa)
Being back at Shangilia is the most wonderful feeling. Everyone is incredibly welcoming and kind, it feels like home. (Lauren)
Today I saw Jesus through doing the puppet show. Because we were telling them the word of our Lord and that really touched my heart. (Lily)
I have had an amazing time connecting with the teens my age, hearing testimonies and how their love for God carries them through life. It is very refreshing. (Parker)
We see Jesus here every day! Today the Bible camp kids had a blast. They are so loving and sweet and smart! They learned that we all have the same heavenly father and that he loves us so much, he called us his children! They had fun playing the game and craft and love the puppet show! The windows in the area came to Shango you on Saturday! We loved reading them and listening to them sing! They are filled with the joy of the Lord! Their joy is contagious and they pulled us in the dance with them! Enjoyed some tea and mendazi (doughnuts) And then received a weeks supply of food. They saying through that too. We look forward to seeing them again on Friday morning! (Sandy)
We’ve had some wonderful experiences these past few days. We had the opportunity to go to church at Oasis of Joy in Lusiola and join in a small group Fellowship. It was very special to learn and study from the book of Romans with our Kenyan sisters. Kenyans sure know how to worship! Pastor Francis took us on a tour of Shangilia Children’s Home, and told us the story of how it came to be. What a work of God! Today we started a Bible camp with the kids, we did a puppet show, play games, and reminded the children of God‘s love. The kids loved it! I love being back with them, since the first time I came here for years ago, the children have grown so much. It brings me so much joy to be back with them. The kids loved it!
