THOUGHTS FROM THE GOSPEL OF JOHN
Pastor Julius Nyambuoro of Kisumu, Kenya
Pastor Julius Nyambuoro representing Touched by love International, and his village which is Approximately 64 kilometers south of Kisumu (Kenya’s third largest city), there lies the small village of Kabondo. It is a drought- and famine-stricken area, torn by the HIV/Aids epidemic. These tragedies have left many orphans and vulnerable children without a place to call home, without parental love, and without access to adequate medical care. Even daily necessities like food and clean water are in limited supply.
In this village, there is a church. While the vision of this church is to serve the community on numerous levels, the primary focus of their current ministry and the goal of Touched by Love International is orphan care. The church is currently housing children in the homes of members in its congregation. This method shows the commitment and compassion of this Christian community, but it is limited in long-term feasibility as the number and needs of the children grow. Therefore, it is the vision of the local church and Touched By Love International to increase the sustainability and efficacy of their ministry by developing an orphanage campus staffed by local, full-time house parents. This will allow the church to continue meeting the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of orphaned children by providing adequate living space, meals, and direct care in the context of a stable family unit structure.
Our God is passionately calling for his followers to care for the vulnerable and orphaned children in our world. We at Touched by Love International are thrilled to join this local church in meeting the needs of these beautiful children.
