Sam Baisden Memorial Sports Field – Cornerstone

Sam Baisden Memorial Sports Field – Cornerstone

$40,000 Matching Grant Offered!

Sam Baisden, age 25, died suddenly in Feb 2018 of a tragic accident at his home in Kingwood, TX. He was the son of Barry and Leslie Baisden of Kingwood, and the brother of Jacob. Barry previously served as the US Board Chairman of Naomi’s Village from 2015 -2017. Sam was the nephew of Naomi’s Village Founders Bob and Julie Mendonsa.  Sam starred in high school baseball and ran track in Kingwood. His family has decided to construct and dedicate a sports field with a track at our school to honor his memory. A $40,000 matching donation has recently been offered! All donations will be matched, dollar for dollar, until the total of $80,000 is reached. Your gift will help with grading, field surface preparation, planting of grass, installation of a track, and construction of concrete bleachers and signage.

In Memoriam: Janet Ross Ebey

In Memoriam: Janet Ross Ebey

Mother of Scott, Ryan, Chad, Shawn, Richard, and Sharon. Lifetime Educator

Donation in memory of Janet Ross Ebey

Janet spent her entire adult life serving others. She loved children, and from an early age knew she was called to be an educator.  Over her 42 years as a schoolteacher, she impacted hundreds, if not thousands of lives. She shared the love of Christ each and every day she showed up in the classroom.  After her “retirement” from the classroom, she almost immediately returned to the school to continue helping students achieve their very best.  Until the very end of her life, even as she battled leukemia, she found a way to love children.  She especially loved caring for students who might have otherwise struggled, and saw them achieve their very best in response to her tender love and care. One of her greatest legacies is the countless adults who now look back and see that the trajectory of their lives changed when they walked into Mrs. Ebey’s classroom.

Janet was never able to physically visit Cornerstone Preparatory Academy, but she loved the work that was being done there.  She was so excited to know that children who would otherwise be without an education were able to not only attend school, but were being shown the love of Jesus Christ as they learned.  Her family is thankful to know that her legacy will continue on as children are able to go to school because of your generosity in her name.

Mendonsa Family Ministry House

Mendonsa Family Ministry House

A match of $38,500 (50%) has been offered towards the main house construction cost of $77,000

In fall 2017, Bob and Julie Mendonsa became empty nesters when Will joined Emily in the US for college. This means they no longer have students attending Rift Valley Academy and thus they can move closer to their daily ministry at Naomi's Village and Cornerstone Preparatory Academy.

Two years ago, Naomi's Village purchased a 1/8-acre plot of land just down the road from its main property, for the purpose of building a ministry house.

The total cost of this house is estimated at $35/sq. ft = $77,000 + $8,000 estimated for a perimeter wall = $85,000 total.

**A match of $38,500 (50%) has been offered towards the main house construction cost of $77,000. This means that every dollar donated between now and Jan 1, 2019 will be matched up to that amount!

Please give today to help the Mendonsas move closer to their beloved kids at Naomi's Village, where they will be free to spend more hours with them in the evening and on weekends.

Naomi’s Village Birthdays

Naomi’s Village Birthdays

Celebrate with us

At Naomi’s Village we celebrate each child’s birthday by helping them to see that God created them and that they are special to our family. This year we will continue celebrating with a monthly lunch on the last Sunday of each month by taking the birthday kids for a pizza party at a local café. After returning to NV, the children will then share cake and ice cream with the rest of the kids and staff in our dining hall. Please help us to celebrate each child’s birthday by giving $10 today to our party fund. Your donation will help pay for transportation, pizza, sodas, cake, ice cream, and gift bags for the children who share in that month’s birthday. You are welcome to send a birthday card or e-mail to a child and we will be sure they receive it.

Naomi’s Village Christmas

Naomi’s Village Christmas

Celebrate with us

If you would like to give your child a gift for Christmas, please make a contribution of $20. We will use a portion of this donation towards the Christmas outreach the children do every year.
The children assemble and deliver food gift bags on Christmas Eve Day to the needy families in our community, including families at one of the local Internally Displaced People’s Camps.
These food bags include flour, sugar, tea leaves, lard, beans, fresh fruit (usually plums as that is the tradition in Kenya), and soap. We’ll use the other part of the donation to purchase a gift for your child!

Cornerstone Christmas

Cornerstone Christmas

Celebrate with us

We want our Cornerstone community students and their families to feel loved in tangible and practical ways during the Christmas season. Your contribution will be used to provide extra food for these families over the holiday break.

Your sponsored child will also have the opportunity to participate in a special Christmas outing. On their day trip, they'll visit a part of Kenya they've never seen before (40 minutes from their community), play in bounce houses, go horseback riding, eat at a restaurant (a first for most of them), and take a boat ride on Lake Naivasha to spot hippos!

By giving just $20 today, you can help us to be the hands and feet of Jesus in ministering to a vital need. Together we can make the invisible God more visible to over 500 Kenyan people in the Rift Valley this Christmas.
