Dickson Maisa, Children of the Kingdom coordinator in Kenya, met with graduates from our program this past weekend. They had a time of reflection and thanksgiving of what God has done in their lives over the years. Dickson reported that he was so blessed to see their appreciation for the work of God through the ministry of Children of the Kingdom. Dickson challenged them to make a commitment to give back to the ministry and touch the lives of more Turkana children now that they have graduated from the program. One of the current students (David Lorukudi) who is pursuing his college degree in education and who is sponsored by the Salt and Light Sunday School class in Ruston, LA, made a one time contribution right away as a sign of starting the vision. The others were also compelled and have agreed to make a commitment. Even those who do not have jobs were touched to give what they are able to. What a gift to see these graduates taking the next step. They have been blessed and they are now a blessing to their community.
