The SOH Girls have a new home!!!!

Can you imagine finally moving to a place that you can call home for the 1st time. This place is secure for them and owned by the ministry. The 20 girls at SOH Home are very excited.  So far we have built a latrine and finished the house but just watch what God does over the next few years on these 3 acres!!!

Video highlighting the Stream of Hope Home story

This is a nice little video showing the People, Place, and Purpose of the Stream of Hope Home.  Mission Servants Ministry is blessed to sponsor and participate in the loving work to raise up the 46 children there.  They are doing very well and improved so much in the year we have known them.  2014 will be an exciting year at the home with our land purchase and new construction.  Follow what happens…

SOH Project #1…Girls Latrine and Washhouse

The land purchase was finalized a little over a week ago and we are rapidly progressing to be able to move the 26 girls to the site.  This will cut out over 4 miles of walking each day and be a huge blessing especially for the girls that have illnesses.

The 1st project to complete before the move is possible is a latrine.  We are constructing a 5 door building with 3 latrines and 2 wash rooms.

The happy looks on their faces tell the whole story.

Welcome Annet, LSH Social Worker

We welcome Annet to the Lord’s Servants home as Social Worker.  She lives in Kitale with her family and has two children.  The Social Worker position is critical and Annet will be the children’s’ advocate, liaison with the schools, and health monitor.  I pray that she is empowered and I am sure she will be loved.
