We had a great trip to Chemilil to visit Pastor Boaz and his church. Many of you remember Collins from my 2009 trip to Kenya. Collins had a badly infected thumb and the team rallied to help him. We were able to get him proper medical treatment and save his life.
I was reunited with Collins and his father Paul. It was so great to see them. I refer to Collins as my Kenyan son. We bonded during the time that he was so sick and it was very emotional for me to see him.
I cannot say enough good things about Pastor Boaz, he is a great man of God. I have known Boaz for 9 years and in that time, I have seen as he has built his church and continued to take care of many orphans.
Boaz runs a school and the students live with him and his wife. They care for all of these children as their own. Boaz has raised over 130 children. Wow. Two of them have gone on to be doctors and several others are working professional jobs.
Boaz takes kids in off the street, educates them, feeds them, clothes them and gets them on their feet into adulthood.
Can you imagine cooking breakfast, lunch and dinner for 60 something children everyday? His wife Helen is quite the administrator, but she leads from the front.
I wish many blessings on Boaz and his family for the work that they do everyday.
