Kisima Academy, a mission of COS, is a Christian orphanage and school in rural western Kenya.
It’s December—a time to look back and review the blessings of the year. This year at Kisima the new girls’ dorm, including two private rooms for female teachers, was completed and furnished, and construction of a permanent water supply (borehole) with plans for elevated storage tanks was started.
Most of all 81 orphans were cared for and educated. Another 218 community students were educated, and 52 Kisima graduates were supported in high schools. Heartfelt thanks to sponsors and donors who helped make the care and education of the children and the progress possible. Everyone in Kisima community is deeply appreciative of their support. COS members sponsor 22 orphans and teachers. Their photos are on the Kisima bulletin board in the CMC.
There are seven children with no sponsors and many more who are partially sponsored. These are all children who would have had no chance at an education before coming to Kisima. Photos and histories are on the Kisima website www.friendsofkisima.org under the Children Needing Sponsors menu item. Please contact me if you are interested in being a blessing to a child and letting him or her know that there is someone who cares about them and prays for them. Gerda Fink
