E-newsletter June 2019

Thank you for everyone who prayed for us, donated, and helped make the 2019 trip to Africa a reality. What a blessing to see how God moves on the hearts of His people here in the U.S. to reach out and serve the pastors and children of that land.   Click the links...

East Africa April 2019

Our trip began in Moi’s Bridge visiting our main project of the Children Are People School and spending much time making necessary improvements there and at the children’s homes. With 160 children nothing less can be expected. Things we in the States take so quickly...

Mt. Elgon – Pastor Davidson

On Mount Elgon we purchased a new motorcycle for Pastor Davidson, provided his son with a laptop, a useful tool for his future schooling, and distributed many feminine packs provided by Eden Song Ministries and Central Baptist Church. Clothing given by Kathy Dehlbom’s...

Please Pray for Kenya’s Street Boys

Mt. Elgon – Pastor Margaret

We love the children! We were fully equipped with Bible lessons and crafts because of Dixie’s friend, Marilyn O’Brien. Thank you for providing the materials and making our teaching experience a breeze. What a delight. It’s always an honor to share the love of Christ....

Julie & Emmanuel

While on Mt. Elgon, the Children Are People team was able to visit Julie and her family. Julie is a bright 15-year-old girl who had polio as a young child and is unable to walk. Even though this disease affected her limbs, it has not affected her spirit. She is such a...

Pastor Titus

Pastor Titus was very busy the day we visited. He is building new classrooms because enrollment in the school doubled since last year. School was not in session when we were there, but Luetta attracted some nearby children. Pastor Titus still needs funds for cement...

Bungoma, Kenya – Bishop Justus Ochuro

Dixie was honored to be asked to share the Children are People message at Bishop Justus’s Word of Life Church. It’s amazing how the people are grabbing the vision of pouring into the lives of children. The population of Sub-Saharan African countries is projected to...

Mt. Elgon – Pastor Joseph

Pastor Joseph met us at the base of his area of Mt. Elgon; it’s too far for us to walk up. Marie and Luetta ministered to the children while the rest of the team gave women/teen girls feminine packs and passed out Bibles supplied by Kathy’s church, Fountain of Life in...

Mt. Elgon – Chwele Town, Pastor Francis O’Charles

Children Are People has known Pastor Francis for a few years. We haven’t helped him much so far, but he would be a good candidate in the future. Like most pastors in Africa, Pastor Francis has a church and a school. Like so many, he rents land because it is so...

Bys Children’s Home

Pastor Jeff and Stephanie Bys are American missionaries to Bungoma, Kenya. We visited the children’s home and heard their hearts for children. They take any child, any age that needs help. Needless to say, they are in the midst of building a larger home and a school....
