We celebrate this year’s Christmas with so much joy and thanksgiving. We do have lots to thank God for in seeing us through the year, 2014. We have seen the kids grow up in bounds and leaps.
Indeed, we are now some busy parents of three teens: Roselyn Chelimo-18, Milcah Cherotich-17, and Leah Chenangat-15. The girls are our 1st, 2nd, and 3rd born respectively. They are doing well in their studies.
Roselyn is in grade 13th, and attends Trinity College, in Kampala, Uganda, where she will be doing her last year of High School in 2016. Milcah just completed her 1st year of high school at St. Joseph’s Girls’ High School in Kitale, a neighboring district to Pokot.
Leah is left with one year to complete elementary school, so she will be doing her final exams next year 2015.
The rest of the kids are doing great too: Nelson Yatich will enter 6th grade next year, while Naomi Chesang, will be starting grade 5. Little Joshua (just turned 4) still hangs out with mom. Oftentimes, he prefers herding around Daylight’s cows to being in a kindergarten room with other kids.
In addition, Joshua has been through a barrage of malaria so frequently. It is not long since he was hospitalized for malaria for almost a week. He is going strong again though, and we are making every effort to prevent another malaria attack.
Angelina and I are going great at Daylight. Our work is cut out – looking after the 283 strong, kids at Daylight. It is, for lack of a better word, the flipside of our extended family. We are so excited working with and for the kids at Daylight. We also have a strong team of staff at Daylight and we work together to ensure that the kids at Daylight receive the best care and catering.
Over and above, I can’t close before I mention the fact that this year would not have been such a success, if it were not for the tens of hundreds of friends and supporters who went out of their way to pray and support us in more ways than one. We thank God for all of you.
As we celebrate this Christmas, pray together with us that the gracious Lord will grant us mercy and favor in making a difference in the lives of the many children who need a comforting touch in the hurting world.
And to God be the Honor and Glory. Amen.
