Naomi’s Village Testimonials
These children will become game changers in the world
What you are doing out there is touching real lives and transforming communities and families alike.
In so doing, you are also helping to bring to pass Scripture in Acts 10:34 where the Apostle Peter exclaims that God is not a respecter of persons! These children who lived erstwhile in squalor and hopeless conditions will undoubtedly become game changers in their communities and the world at large because you’ve allowed God to use you in mobilizing financial and human resources in order to give them the same opportunities as other children (including ourselves) who once were or are now being raised in normal nuclear families.
I’m tempted to liken our Cornerstone children as those that have made the Schindler’s List, knowing there are hundreds of such around the country and the Continent who will never reach their full potential (some will even die before their 5th birthday) for every child you bring into the Cornerstone/ Naomi’s Village family.
May the Holy One of Israel renew your strength and keep your eyes stayed on the prize as we press on to the mark of our high calling in Christ Jesus our Lord!
From the moment I entered the gate I felt a sense of peace, belonging and fulfillment.
They are all such great kids. It’s a shame we’re limited to seeing them only once a year.
It was great as always to see Catherine & Mary G. Catherine is starting to come out of her shell a little bit, and is a lot more outgoing and vocal than she ever has been. We got to have lunch with them at Ubuntu while the “July birthdays” ate at a separate table. It was a really sweet time.
Four NV children were sponsored right there on the spot by four different team members.
The timing was also amazing because we got to see Evalyne, Zakayo, and Mary M as they came home from boarding school (Nairobi). As we played soccer, two of our team members who played college soccer here in the US mentioned that Evalyne & Zakayo were good enough to get into a soccer academy in the US.
When I was doing a devotional at night for the older kids, I asked for a volunteer to read Isaiah chapter 9. Zakayo quickly raised his hand, and came to the front with me and read the chapter. I was super impressed.
Speaking of Evalyne, there is an international exchange program with a Christian high school in our area here. Charelle is looking into it for Evalyne.
We had several parties while at NV, had church, chapel at Cornerstone, and an NV Talent Show. We were all incredibly impressed with Ann and Mary W’s singing voices! Those two girls are entertainers!!! Whatever “it” is, they have it.
It was great to see many of our other favorites as well – Esther (of course!), Millicent, Stella, Joel, and Laban. They are all such great kids. It’s a shame we’re limited to seeing them only once a year.
The magnitude of it all is mind-blowing.
I believe He put Naomi’s Village in my life so that I could experience His goodness in my life and in the lives of others and so that I could see that He has the victory over all evil.
It was our best Kenyan experience ever!
We can’t express what a great week we had at Naomi’s Village and Cornerstone. Thank you for setting up a fantastic way to visit. It was our best Kenyan experience ever and I can assure you that our hearts are forever joined with your efforts!
Give Moses, Mercy, Laban, Zakayo and the rest a great big hug from us! Frankly, our tearful goodbye with Moses was a game-changer for me.
