Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from Daylight Kenya!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from Daylight Kenya!

After a great 2019 school year, our Daylight students are home for the Holiday break. Many of our students are going home to spend time with family. For many of our students this is a joyous time of reconnecting with relatives and neighbors. But for some it can be a painful time where they miss family members who have died. Please keep all our students in your thoughts and prayers, especially our 8th graders who said goodbye to great friends and teachers. We send them with our love as they prepare for High School at other schools.

Our 8th graders are a caring, hilarious, and a super smart class of students. They have been amazing mentors for the younger kids to look up to and we are so grateful for all the memories.

We are so proud of them and we can’t wait to see how they will change our world for the better!

We also want to give a special thank you to the House of Mercy Lutheran Church who donated the proceeds from their Church Christmas Market to Daylight!

Joy is Recovering from Malaria

Daylight partner Peter Losenguria took his daughter Joy to the hospital because Joy was very sick with Malaria.

Their family lives and 8 hour drive deep into the Rift Valley desert. So they traveled by bus and then spent the weekend at the hospital.

Joy was a brave patient and she’s still smiling after three blood transfusions. Please keep Joy and the Losenguria family in your prayers.

We are so grateful for Daylight supporters who supported her recovery. Your support saves lives of hundreds of children like Joy.

And thank you to The Aldrich Tattoo Parlor in Minneapolis for donating the proceeds from several tattoo’s this month to support Daylight School!

Give the Gift of Friendship with Kenya Students

This Holiday Season consider giving the gift of friendship.

When you become a classroom sponsor you or a loved one will receive inspiring letters and stories from our Daylight students throughout the year.

Pastor Lawrence Richardson posts his classroom students’ stories near his mirror in his church office. “I love the kids at Daylight. I got to visit them in 2018 and their letters remind me of our friendship and the inspiring strength of these young people.”

Rachel James gave the gift of sponsorship to her two daughter. “We picked fourth grade because our kids were in 3rd and 5th grade at the time.We have received multiple letters from the students in the classroom sharing their lives, goals, and academic favorites.My family loves reading the letters and seeing the pictures. Our children have written back to the classrooms as well.”
