Faith

My mom is mentally ill. She has many children from different men. It seems that my father is married and no one knows his whereabouts. One day my mom left us and disappeared. We have not seen her since and no one knows where she is at now. My older sister had to step in to care for us but she had her own children to care for as well. It was very difficult for us so the church stepped in. Different families each took one of us but my guardian could not continue caring for me. I returned to my sister but she could not provide for me to go to school and I had to stop my education. I am in 6th grade (Class 6). K04-CFH/172

Peter

I am from the Maasai tribe and lived in Narok with both of my parents and two younger sisters. My father was abusive to my sister, and when it was reported to the police he was arrested. His relatives threatened the lives of my family and we were forced to relocate to Maai Mahiu town, which is several hours away. We had no home. My mother does not have a way to provide for us. A local church provided some housing but my siblings and I were still unable to attend school. I am so happy that I was rescued together with my siblings to live at Maai Mahiu Children’s Home. I am going to the CFH Academy and I am in Class 5. I feel safe here. K01-CFH/179

Shelly

I live with my mom. My father abandoned us. We live in a single-room rented house in town but the landlord will often lock us out because we get behind on the rent. We all sleep on the floor because we cannot afford to buy a bed or mattress. My mom does not have a steady job and works temporary jobs. Last year she was involved in a defilement case on her way home from work. My baby sister was born in December. I often get sick with pneumonia because of the living conditions. I am thankful to be safe and cared for at the Children’s Home with my other sister, Shane. I am in 5th grade. K01-CFH/180

Samuel

I have a large family that was living in poor conditions. I was left under the care of my father after my mother passed away. My father is unemployed and the only source of income for our family comes through any temporary work he can find. There are not enough beds or even furniture for everyone to sleep at night. I am so thankful to be at the Maai Mahiu children's home so I can attend school. I am currently in Polytechnical learning building technology. K01-CFH/003

David

I do not know my father. My mother abandoned me when she disappeared to an unknown location. My older brother and I were left with our grandmother. She does casual jobs like washing clothes and selling vegetables. My uncle is in trade school and also depends upon my grandmother. We rent a single room. My uncle and brother sleep on chairs. I was sleeping in the bed with my grandmother. When the social worker did a home visit and realized the conditions of my home life, I was grateful to be offered a chance to live at the children’s home. I am in 4th grade. K01-CFH/185

Eunice

I do not know my father. My mother has physical and Intellectual disabilities. The left side of her body is partially paralyzed. Because of her physical limitations, she believes that the only way she can survive and care for my sister and I is to sell herself to men. When we relocated to Maai Mahiu town, we were hosted by a well-wisher for a while. Now we rent a single room house and my mom is accommodating men at any time. I was thankful when my sister, Lucy, and I were given a safe place to stay at Maai Mahiu Children’s Home. I am now able to start school and I’m in the Pre-Primary 1 class (preschool). K01-CFH/188

Felister

I am from the Masaai tribe. When my mother was very young, she ran away from home and was married. When she died from pneumonia, her body was returned to her parents to be buried since my dad had not paid the dowry. When this happened, my dad disappeared. He abandoned me and my older brother, Samuel. We were desperate. My grandfather took us in. In 2018, when I was 3 years old, my brother was rescued to the children’s home. Now that I’m ready for school and my tribe is known to marry girls off very young, I’m thankful to be living at the children’s home too. I’m in 1st grade. K01-CFH/191

Joseph

I do not know my father. My mother is an alcoholic and struggled to care for me and my brother. One day she disappeared to an unknown location. We were left with my grandfather. My grandmother died in 2009 after a long illness. My grandfather is also sick and it is very difficult for him to care for us. It was hard to concentrate in school because I was hungry and I was not cared for at home. I am thankful that my brother, Peter, and I can live at the children’s home together. We are safe and all of our needs are met. Plus we get to attend school. I am in 4th grade. K01-CFH/189

Hear From Our Child Sponsors!

Mark Hayner, sponsor since 2009

My experience with child sponsorship through Chariots actually began in Kenya, as I was fortunate enough to visit the Maai Maihu children’s Mark-Hayner-with-Isaac2home in 2009.
On a walk to church Sunday morning, I walked next to a young boy named Isaac, who I was taken with right away.  He had a very quiet confidence about him, and I thoroughly enjoyed talking to him. In just a few days’ time I had grown a deep love for these children and wanted to be able to make an impact in their lives even after I went home. For my family, the answer to that desire was child sponsorship.  What’s more, God made it very clear who I should sponsor.  I checked with the social worker named Rose, and sure enough, Isaac was not being sponsored at the time.  I was thrilled.  Since then, I’ve gotten to correspond with him through letters, and twice now, have gotten to see him in person–to hug him, give him some gifts, and most importantly, spend some precious minutes with him- sharing updates on our family, and hearing about his goals and dreams.  He is no longer the young boy I knew on that walk, but now a young man, with a bright future ahead of him.  His quiet confidence is evident as ever, and it comes from the solid biblical foundation he was given at this Children’s home.  This is a young man, who despite his circumstances, knows who he is in Christ, and that makes all the difference.  He affectionately refers to himself as “our loving son,” a fact which I am very proud of!

Sponsoring a child through Chariots is simply one of the most rewarding things that you can do.  It takes the idea of showing God’s love to a new level, as you are honestly gaining a family member through this.  To love them, pray for them, and watch them grow and develop is one of the most precious things you can experience.   It is a very tangible way to bless someone and show the love that God has given us first.  I would highly, highly recommend getting involved, and sponsoring a child today if the Lord has laid that on your heart.  I can promise you, you will never regret it!

Crystal Moyer, sponsor since 2014

Crystal MoyerAs a younger couple, my husband and I were struggling to have a child of our own.  We started the adoption process to give a child a home but God started giving us girls of our own.  However, our hearts were still tender toward those children without a home or family.   So our family was delighted when our church partnered with Chariots for Hope.  We jumped at the chance to sponsor a child and now a family of Dad, Mom and four daughters … has a BOY, Emmanuel!!!!  We have been blessed as we pray for him and communicate with him through packages.

God had another blessing to bestow! My oldest daughter and I had the miracle of going on a mission’s trip to Kaptagat Children’s Home where our boy lives.  We had built a relationship through pictures and notes, and Emmanuel knew who we were the minute he saw us.  God’s love and prayers connected us and now we were face to face … my cup runneth over!  The time we spent with him was glorious, he is a gift from God.  Words cannot describe the joy that floods my heart every time I pray for or think of our boy, Emmanuel.

It is a blessing for us to give to these children, but I saw firsthand what our family meant to Emmanuel.  As a sponsor, you are not just a name … they want to know you, they love you and they thank God for you!  Praise God we can be a part of these children’s lives!
