Transforming Our Community

It's Not Just Children Whose Lives Are Being Changed at the Open Arms Village.  
Big Peoples' Lives Are Being Changed Too.

She started her own business - a small grocery kiosk in a nearby town.  It's incredible what can happen when people have a job with a reliable income.  It's incredible when we can help them do it.
 
Eusilah Jebet joined our Open Arms staff in Kenya in 2010.  For almost seven years now she has worked diligently as part of our housekeeping staff. 
 
With a smile on her face, Eusilah, in her own words, is "thankful to God because He has brought me so far since Open Arms employed me.  My  salary has allowed me to build my family, educate my children and meet other financial needs."
 
Your financial support through Open Arms does miracles.  It employs people.  It feeds their children and sends them to school.  It helps them start their own businesses.  It helps them become self-sustaining.
 
Eusilah said that one of her prayers is that God will help Open Arms to grow by adding sponsors.
 
Will you consider being an answer to Eusilah's prayer today?  Your gift makes a big difference - starting in the lives of those inside our Village and spreading to those outside as well.  How wonderful to think you're an answer to someone's prayer.  Thank you!
 
This is the bible verse that Eusilah quoted when we sat down to talk to her:
 
1 John 4:7 - "Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God."
 
Your gift of $25 will give the average worker in Kenya 3 days of employment. Will you help us provide for more people and families today?
 
Counting it a real honor to work with Eusilah,

Transforming Through Twins

Open Arms recently welcomed twin babies to our family! They are the fifth set of twins to join us at the Village, and they bring our total number of children to an incredible 139. Victor and Pamela were placed in our care after Child Welfare removed them from an unsafe home situation. When we received these precious eighteen-month-old children, they only weighed 13 pounds each. Would you join us in praying for these sweet babies, that they would begin to grow and thrive with the love and care they receive at Open Arms? We are so grateful for the privilege of raising them to know and follow Jesus, and we're excited to see where He leads them.
