Home For the Elderly


Ministering to the elderly.

Pastor Boniface's mom and dad, Hellen and Silvanus,
 have become the overseers and ministers of the widows home.
The elderly are being cared for and many are coming to Christ!
They are doing a great work for the Lord. Look at those smiles. Truly blessed!




A home for the elderly located in Osinga Village (5 miles from Migori).
We have recently sealed the building with concrete to keep out mosquitoes and leeches. The insects were biting the elderly and bringing with them many illnesses. Praise the Lord for this very important improvement!






Widow's receiving new blankets!

A fundraiser held  August 2016 by the Bible School kids at the
 Hope Community Christian Church in New Philadelphia, Ohio U.S.A.
Pastors Scott & Staci Snyder, supplied enough funds to give blankets to the elderly.
The days there are warm, but it gets very damp and cool at night. What a comfort for them.

Upon presentation of the new blankets, Boniface found he had one extra. They presented it to Josephina, who was so overwhelmed, she brought her old one to church on the following Sunday. Her old blanket was over 10 yrs old, tattered and worn. Excited about receiving her new one, she held  up the old one and testified, "this is how missionaries used to be, they really cared about you." Since then she has been inviting neighbors and relatives to church, and has inspired many to attend services!

Boniface has visited some relatives of Josephina's who live across the small river from Osinga. He met 80 year old John who is blind, and 91 year old Joash. They were among the first converts to Christ over 40 years ago, when Pentecostal preachers came from New York. Boniface brought them medicine and treated their sickness and sores. They also asked for blankets . If you would like to help with their request, go to the donate page and put a note in the donate comment box for this need.

Orphanage Progress

Orphanage updates.


Many improvements on the orphanage have been completed in 2015.
Boniface and his family are now living with 26 orphans thanks to God's provision and the generosity of many supporters. Thank you everyone, and please keep this ministry in your prayers!

Items completed in 2015:
1. Existing well cleaned and covered.
2. Pump and water storage tank installed.
3. Electric installed.
4. New beds for 26 orphans.
5. Temporary certificate granted for operation by the government.

They are currently working on the three needed bathrooms, kitchen plumbing, and painting. Upon completion of these, they will be issued a permanent certificate which allows for the rest of the orphans to be housed there. God is good and making the way!











Painting is continuing. Looking very good!
