Three New Children At The Ilula Children’s HomeJanuary 9, 2012 by Holly
Many of you may remember the Launch House article in the Spring 2011 Cultivate magazine, which told of a new house being built for the high school boys to come home to on holidays. The project was primarily undertaken to provide enough space to accept new children into the Ilula family. It was decided that there would be room for 10 new boys; however, it was uncertain if there would be sufficient funding and if the right children could be identified. The Director of the Children’s Home, Laban Rono, and his staff prayed for many months for God to answer their prayers and provide direction. God is good and faithful and our prayers were just recently answered.
Three boys, ages 3, 4, and 7, arrived in Ilula on Tuesday to meet their new families and to see their new home. Mr. Rono introduced Tony, Ronald and Rogers to the crowd and within minutes these boys had made many new friends. For the parents, the long awaited day was sweet. Their hearts swelled with joy as they watched the children being embraced by their new brothers and sisters. We praise God for these boys and the opportunity they now have for a bright and promising future. Please pray for them as they adjust to their new family and also for the remaining seven boys, that in time, they may also join us here at the Ilula Children’s Home.
