Euvin

My dad passed away in 2019 from a heart condition. Due to my tribe’s (Luiya) culture, my mother was not allowed to be around during the grieving process since she and my dad were not married. She returned to her parents. I was left with my grandmother. Not long after that my grandmother also passed away. So my aunt took me in. However, it caused a problem because no one else in the family approved of me being around so she took me back to my mother. However, my mother is also unable to care for me. I have nowhere to go. I’m thankful for a safe place to live at the children’s home. I am in 1st grade. K04-CFH/171

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

Shane

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, Shelly. I am in 3rd grade. K01-CFH/181

Gabriel

I do not know my father. My mother is an alcoholic and does not seem to care about me. She would leave me for days, without food. My grandmother took me in but she has health challenges and is not able to provide for my basic needs. I was not able to go to school consistently because of school fees. Then I was given an opportunity at the Chariots for Hope Academy. It was free but I had to walk 4 miles one way so it was very difficult for me. I am thankful for an opportunity to be safe and cared for at the Maai Mahiu Children’s Home. I am in 4th grade. K01-CFH/183

Collins

My mother abandoned me at age 10. Since then life has become more difficult. She left me with my elderly and extremely impoverished grandmother. My stepfather did not accept me since I was not his biological son. My grandmother is HIV positive, does not have a steady source of income, and is responsible for two other children. I am so grateful to be cared for at Kaptagat children’s home. I am in high school. (Form 1) K04-CFH/022

Jackline

My mother passed away due to chemical poisoning where she was working. She was never married. My grandparents took care of us. It was very difficult for them to adequately provide for their grandchildren. They are elderly and are extremely impoverished. I am thrilled to live at Kaptagat children’s home. I am currently in Polytechnical school studying social work. K04-CFH/091

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

Age: 26 | Gender: Male | Children's Home: Maai Mahiu

Charity

My mother passed away giving birth when I was young. She left behind five children and a grandchild with no one to take care of us. My brother took the responsibility of providing for all of us. This has not been easy for him because he is unemployed. The small piece of land we own produces very little food. There are no relatives or neighbors who can provide holistic care for us. Since coming to Kaptagat I am attending a Polytechnic school for catering. K04-CFH/060

Age: 20 | Gender: Female | Children's Home: Kaptagat

Boaz

My dad is incarcerated for a rape case. My mother is suffering from cervical cancer. My parents are not legally married. After my dad was charged, his father started mistreating our family until he chased us away from our home. My mom, older sister, younger brother, and I are living in a small hut that a Good Samaritan gave to us. My mom cannot work consistently because sometimes she is too weak and she has no land to farm. We often go without eating and I am not in school regularly. I’m so thankful to be able to live at Kaptagat Children’s Home with my brother, Timothy. I am in 3rd grade. K04-CFH/175

Age: 10 | Gender: Male | Children's Home: Kaptagat

Vincent

I do not know my father. My mom left me and my siblings under the care of my grandmother as she went to look for other jobs. She has never returned. My grandmother separated from my grandfather many years ago because he is a drunkard and irresponsible. My grandmother works casually on someone’s farm so that she is able to feed us. However, I am not able to go to school because there is no money to pay for the small school fees. I’m thankful for an opportunity to live at Kaptagat Children’s Home with my brother, Emmanuel Kimutai. I am in 2nd grade. K04-CFH/174

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!
