“My name is Bravin Otieno. I am 10yrs old and live with my parents and 5 brothers. I thank God very much and I am very happy that I have been sponsored. I will work very smart at school so that I change the living standards of my family. I desire being a Doctor and a Pastor in future so that I can also help other people. May God bless Kenya Hope Charity and my sponsor.”
On receiving the news of her sponsorship, Sharon Anyango, a form two girl at Sagam Secondary School was overwhelmed with joy. This is what she had to say:
“I am very happy. It is like a dream to me. Is it true that God has blessed me with a sponsor? I promise to work very smart at school. I want to be an accountant in the future.
I want to pray that God enables me to achieve my dream so I can help my father, my other two siblings and my grandmother. I am not happy seeing my father work as caretaker in someone’s home to feed us. I want to help him live a good life. May God richly bless my sponsor. This is all I can say. I still can’t believe it. I am very happy!”
From Paul Agoro – 20th August 2012
We thank God for the great things He has done through you. Truly your kindness and hard work has been known to all in our community. Thank you for your prayers to uplift the poor and the needy. Through you prayers, Mama Dina, the blind lady opposite St. Ann’s church, has been built a permanent house.
We thank God for the 2012 team to Kenya and truly last words have strength .I think of the last words you shared with us before escorting you to the airport. These words inspire us to knock so that it would be opened unto us. (Mathew 7:7) Truly you have uplifted us in many ways. We are grateful for your love, support and prayers.
The Bible inspires us not to tire of doing good deeds for we would be rewarded for all our good deeds. May God bless you and lift you up together with your families.

Subject: RACING TO THE DESTINY.
To: Brian Humphreys, St Georges Church,
Receive much greetings from us with the hope that you had a nice Christmas. I humbly take this opportunity to thank you for the mighty things the Lord has done through your continuous love. Truly you have been a blessing to the needy such as the orphans and widows. We appreciate for the support that you have bestowed on our nursery school, our youths and the church in general. Thank you for the support you have offered on the construction of the church as well.
We want to encourage you to continue serving wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men, because you know that the Lord will reward everyone according to his deeds. (Ephesians 6:7). We pray that your love and mercy may abound more and more, for on judgment day the Lord won’t ask if you wore designer clothes, He’ll ask how many people you helped clothe. God won’t ask in what neighbourhood you lived, He’ll ask how well you treated your neighbours; He won’t ask about your skin colour, He’ll ask about the content of your character.
We wish you a happy New Year full of the Lord’s blessings upon your families.
Pastor Paul – on behalf of UCDC.
We give glory to God for what he’s doing through St. Georges. Thank you very much for sending goods to Edward and George together with bibles for UCDC. We appreciate God so much for St. Georges, for though being small, God always uses small things to glorify His name. In the bible He used David a small boy to glorify his name by killing Goliath. Judges 7:2 He used a small army to give his name glory. We are happy we received the gift certificate you sent.To Brian Humphreys 27/06/13
We are looking forward to receive you back to Ulumbi as usual and believe that God will protect you as He has always done. God has expanded our nursery school and we even have a new teacher. I believe you will see more when you come.

KENYA HOPE CHARITY,
We take this opportunity to thank you for the kindness you have shown our community. Truly you have touched the lives of many since the beginning of the year. Sincerely you have been kind and generous to the needy in our community. We are very grateful for the continuous love, care and support that you have bestowed upon the nursery schools. Thank you for the love you have shown the Sunday school children. The concern you have shown has been a great inspiration in their lives. We also appreciate for the children whose lives you have touched at secondary school level.
Thank you also for the support you have shown us in moments of mourning and distress. You were a great blessing to us when brother Justo lost his wife. We will not forget to mention the blind, lame and all other needy people in our community and the hospital bills that you helped to clear alongside financing the repair of the school toilets and the guesthouse that was damaged by the long rains. The maize supply during the periods of famine has also been a great blessing to the entire community.
Above all, the community is very grateful for the measures that you have put in place to ensure that there is adequate food through the supply of fertilizer and seeds. We take this opportunity to thank all the friends who invested in Kenya Hope Charity and contributed in touching our lives in one way or another. The Bible says that he who gives will lack nothing: Proverbs 28:27. All in all, we all wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!! Amen.
Your Co-worker in Christ,

Hello Kenya Brian,
I sincerely take this opportunity to thank you for your love and dedication towards the well-being of this community. Truly, this is a God-given burden in your heart. For this, I continually pray for God’s grace and favour upon your life.
The Kenya Team 2017 was a great team of men of God. The lord of spiritual maturity and wisdom as displayed by the team marvelled me. I learnt a lot from their life for the short period we intervened. Wisdom, humanity, wise teachings and many other things. The prophetic word from Paul really touched my heart. I have taken time in prayer over this revelation; WHEN HE SPOKE ABOUT A SPRING OF SPIRITUAL WATER FLOWING FROM THE FLOOR OF OUR COMMUNITY CENTRE TO THE ROAD AND THEN TO ALL OTHER COMMUNITIES.
As a leader, it’s easier to hear the wind blow, but you may not know where it is coming from or going to. It is my prayer that we do not trust our own wisdom and strength/abilities, but allow God’s will and plan for our centre to be accomplished.
Your co-worker, Pastor Paul
Autumn 2017 Testimonies
Overwhelmed with joy, Brighton’s mother says, “I so very much thank God for his grace and favour that He has shown towards me by helping us get a sponsor for our son. Though struggling to survive, we are now very happy that our son will attend school without interruptions. May God bless the sponsor mightily.
On receiving the good news about her grandson’s sponsorship, this physically challenged, old widow thanked God in her local dialect, almost collapsing. “I thank God of remembrance, who has remembered me in old age. I was left with these children as their sole custodian when their parents died. I am crippled, I can’t walk. I have no source of income. I have no one to help me. I work on my small piece of land to feed my five orphaned grandchildren. I never knew that one day God would remember me. I now believe that God is really able. May God bless the sponsor who is going to stand with Collins through his schooling. I will encourage him to work hard at school, “said Margaret, Collins’ grandmother.
Fidel: “I am very happy. I thank God for the sponsor. I will work very hard at school. I will build a good house for my grandmother. I want to be a teacher in future. Thank you. God bless my sponsor.”
Pastor Paul on behalf of Joseph: We give God the glory for what He has done in this family. This lady is mentally challenged. She depends on left-over foods from around Yala market to feed her two children. She barely comprehends anything. She can laugh, though unable to speak any reasonable word that somebody can understand. On behalf of this lovely family, I want to thank you and pray that God extends your territory.
This is what Shantel’s physically challenged father had to say after receiving the good news about her sponsorship. “I am very much grateful as the father of Shantel to the Almighty God, who made it possible for us to get the sponsorship. Through the sponsorship we hope that Shantel will get help, especially as concerns her schooling. We shall encourage her to work smart at school to succeed. Thank you very much. May God bless Shantel’s sponsor and the entire team mightily.”
Samuel Odour: to my sponsor, I thank you for what you have done to me, am so greatful. May God bless you for me and may you blow 1001 candles.

Lawrence Ochieng: dear sponsor, I thank you for the sponsorship that God has enabled you to do. I thank you so much. May God bless you and your work. I know God will give you strength and energy so that you keep well. Thank you for everything and may God bless you.

May the good Lord continue blessing you and Marilyn for sponsoring James. Though James was hit by a motorcycle and broke his arm and had some bruises, I thank God for sparing his life and he is improving at the Myabendo Centre for the Disabled.
Nick Hillary: hello, we hope that you are well, we too are fine. I am writing this letter to inform you how much I am greatful for your personal sacrifice over my life. May the living God bless you and lift you to the next level. Shalom. Nick Hillary.
Maurice Ofawayo: I was born in Nairobi, my mother abandoned me and my father was a drunk with a temper so I ran away and joined other street kids who struggled to eat despite collecting and selling plastics and worn-out iron sheets for food. When my dad died, Pastor Paul found me and took me back to school which I now love. I have a dream to be an engineer. I trust God will help me.
