Christmas Comes Early to the Ilula Children’s HomeDecember 5, 2011 by Holly
The season of giving is an important time for the Ilula Children’s Home, as it receives many needed supplies from the local communities. Banks, companies and distant relatives of the children bless the home with clothes, food and holiday treats. On Saturday the Children’s Home received over 60 visitors from the Cooperative Bank Eldoret Branch who brought with them large bags of beans, rice, sugar and cooking oil.
The children rejoiced with our guests in great celebration. Speeches were made, songs were sung and many bible verses were recited. The visitors were very impressed with our children and even inspired by their poise, joyful spirits and knowledge of the Bible. The day ended on a very special note. Each child received a bottle of soda, biscuits and a lot of candy. We really thank God for allowing Christmas to come early this year to our Home.
