Timothy

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 and the family. My mom, older sister, 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, Boaz. I am in 1st grade. K04-CFH/176

Shadrach

My mom passed away in 2014 due to asthmatic attacks. I was 5 years old. She was not legally married to my dad but they were living together. My paternal grandparents took me to live with them while my dad stayed in town to work. Later we learned that my dad had moved. He has not come to see us and we do not know where he is. My grandmother knows he is still alive because she hears that he has been seen somewhere. My grandparents have 11 children. My grandfather is paralyzed on one side from a stroke. They are farmers and are not able to provide for our large family. I am in 4th grade. K04-CFH/179

Emmanuel

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, Vincent Kipkemboi. I am in Grade 3. K04-CFH/173

Duncan

My mother was deaf. Then she passed away from Leukemia. I was left under the care of my grandmother. She is separated from my grandfather. We were living with my uncle, and he lost his job. He has his own children, one of whom is epileptic and requires a lot of medical attention. Life was very hard. I have not been able to go to school consistently so although I am 8 years old, I am only in 1st grade. I’m very thankful for an opportunity to live at Kaptagat Children’s Home with my brother, Emmanuel Kipchirchir, where our daily needs are met and we are able to go to school. K04-CFH/180

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!
