No Place to Call Home
By: Mary Esinyen, Children’s Coordinator
During our first visit to Long’em village, I met three children who had been abandoned by their parents after their parents divorced. The children had no place to call home. To survive they worked in a cafeteria in exchange for food and fetched water for the cafe owner. They had no shelter to sleep in, so they slept wherever they could find a comfortable spot.
When the SHARE Team went back to Long’em Village in November, I spotted one of the children walking half-naked in shabby clothes. I was moved with compassion. I took him to a nearby shop and bought him some new clothes. The elder brother, who was about 11 years older, was fishing in the lake with some other boys. I called him aside and asked if he would like to come with me to Lodwar where he could attend school. He rejected my request and ran away saying, “Madam, I don’t want to hear that story!”
Sadly, there are children who have been abandoned for different reasons, and they have to fend for themselves. Please pray for the SHARE team as they continue to reach out to these children and others with the Gospel of Christ. Please pray for the missionaries, as they work to find homes for the abandoned children.
