Education=A Future For Kenya’s Kids! By Pastor Lepley
The grand opening for Point of Grace Lutheran Academy was a great celebration of God’s answer to prayer! The Lord promises to take care of those whom most of society forgets, especially the poor, widows and orphans. Today, we rejoice in His care shown to many of them through our brand new school building!
“For the Lord builds up Zion; he appears in his glory;
he regards the prayer of the destitute and does not despise their prayer.
Let this be recorded for a generation to come, so that a people yet to be created may praise the Lord!” (Psalm 102:16-18, ESV).
How did this school come into being? It started when God brought an Iowa farm boy turned pastor, and pastor’s daughter from Kenya together in Holy Matrimony. Their care for Kenya’s Kids created a school and orphanage program. Now their work has been blessed by caring Christians from California to Canada, Georgia to Michigan and board of volunteers from Seymour, Indiana.
Through gifts of love and dedication that these saints have provided 4Kenya’sKids, we now have a brand new eight-room school building. The year began with about 200 students and enrollment has grown to over 290. What a great blessing! We can see the Lord’s work in all of this as He cares for many who otherwise would have no hope.
These earthly blessings enjoyed by Kenya’s kids at Point of Grace are but a shadow of the eternal riches God pours upon all His people through His Son Jesus Christ. With the promise of happily ever after in heaven, we get to offer every moment of our life to Him in praise and thanksgiving. What a joy it is, to watch God prosper the work of our hands as we labor for those whom He loves and redeems!
