Much Needed R & R
Updated: May 2, 2022
Since the pandemic started last March, Open Arms Village houseparents have worked incredibly long hours with very few breaks in order to make sure all of the kids stayed safe. As many of you know first hand, quarantining with a house full of children is not an easy task. It definitely was a challenge for all of the Village houseparent, too!
Right now, the houseparents are enjoying a very well deserved time of relaxation and rest. All of the houseparents, as well as Rachel Gallagher (Kenyan director) and Pastor Okeyo, are taking a few days away from Open Arms Village to regroup, relax and be restored. The aunties definitely have their hands full caring for all of the children back at the Village right now, but they are managing well.
During these few days, would you pray for the houseparents to be filled with new joy and an abundance of God's grace? Let's ask our Heavenly Father to refill them to overflowing so they will be able to pour the love of God on the children in their care.
God bless you and thank you for praying,
Executive Director, Open Arms International U.S.
P.S I recently challenged eight people to join the Circle of H.O.P.E., our monthly giving program, to honor each one of our 2021 high school graduates. So far, we have had seven people join! We need just ONE MORE new Circle of H.O.P.E. member so that we can notify our graduates that the challenge has been met and their hard work is valued and acknowledged by our donors. If you would like to join the Circle of H.O.P.E. and honor a graduate, you can click here. And, right now, every new Circle of H.O.P.E. partner will have every gift doubled up to $25,000!
