1 Peter 4:10 “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”

Sekela, the children and I were so blessed today to have Ludie visit us at the center. I think Sekela and the children were quite surprised that Ludie can speak fluent Kiswahili!

I am extremely thankful for my brothers and sisters in Christ who come to the center! Whether it’s for a day visit, a two week visit, volunteering in a short-term capacity, to pray for the children, to share the Word, to teach them songs and dances or English, or to play with them or simply to minister them; we thank God for you and the gift or gifts He has blessed you with.

May the Lord Jesus bless you.

With sincerest thanks and blessings
Maara, Sekela and our children


Thanking God for Ludie from the Netherlands, who is currently working in Mbeya for a few weeks. We were so blessed to have Ludie come and visit us at the center today.

Ludie was able to speak with Sekela and the children in Kiswahili as he, his wife and family lived here for a number of years.

The children responded well to Ludie and our two youngest boys absolutely loved engaging with him!

I continue to be touched as I see the boys interact with a godly father figure as most of these children do not have a male relative in their homes.

I thank God for His unconditional love for us.
