Hundreds of thousands of boys sleep on the streets in Kenya. These children are marginalized, beaten, sexually abused and arrested. International Mission Board missionary Kristen Lowry and Eunice Murage, a Kenyan woman, are co-directors of the Naivasha Children’s Shelter.
The staff at the Children’s Shelter see the value and worth in the life of each boy. It’s not an orphanage, but a place where each individual child receives personal attention and encouragement, all building to the goal of being reunited with their families. As they receive counseling and experience God’s love and kindness through the shelter’s staff, their confidence in who they are and their desire to reunite with their families increases daily.
PRAY that the boys will find new life in Christ.
PRAY that as the boys are reconciled with their families, the families will also find hope in Jesus.
PRAY that God will bless the work of the shelter’s staff as they reach out in love to boys who are hurting.
