As I reflected on it, I was struct with the rawness and honesty of it. The report is published pretty much in the vernacular with which it was written. Honestly, it contains examples of the ups and downs of life with our graduates. Yes they are doing well, beginning to earn income and slowly establishing themselves with independence. However it is also marked with the heartaches and challenges life presents to orphans in a developing country. Some challenges they have tackled with success and others have knocked them back a bit. But, with none of the kids, has life knocked them down to stay. I am so proud of them! Life is not easy or often fair to them. In fact, often life is downright cruel, but true to their character, they preserver. Pressing on, as Paul in Philippians states, to take hold of what is promised! They are not perfect but these kids ARE fighters and are so authentic in how they are living out what we've taught them. I couldn't be prouder of them!
Please keep praying for them as they grow, mature and develop. We give them grace when they need it and correction when they require it but we encourage them always through the ups and the downs! I've given you a snapshot here of Henry from class 2. Please click the link and read about the rest of them. Then pray for them and feel inspired by how they push through life! And know we tell them you are all part of their cloud of witnesses cheering the on!
Henry’s post Grad Story
Henry is working with a transport service provider called Likwi Bus services. He sells tickets for the service provider. Though he says he is doing well, Henry told us that he is also looking at a job opportunity within the government. He knows someone that has promised to forward his name on the list addressed to the North-Western Permanent secretary. He did not know exactly the nature of the position he had applied for. In his Christian walk, Henry is still holding on despite some persecution from his peers. He also faced some stumbling blocks from home that challenged his faith, but believes that the LORD will be faithful and will fully restore him. His zeal and passion for God is growing every day, this we've noted even in the Chat group we have established for all MASTERS graduates. He is always asking questions, sharing and trying to get everybody involved in group discussion. Henry is attending his home church regularly and serves wherever they need him.
