By the Grace of God

Posted by Fr Methodius JM Kariuki on

We just delivered food stuff to the family as we promised. All this work of love is through your support in donations.. Please Pray for us.

At St Barnabas orphanage and school, you can make a difference today by giving a small portion of yourself and what our Dear LORD Jesus Christ has blessed you with, and it is for our Christian Orthodox Missions in Africa. The difference is so important that each and every young child is praying every day for even the smallest of gifts. This is where you can make a huge difference. Won’t you help even, just one child?

Just $1.00 a day per children can change the life of an Orthodox African child to help them become self-reliant and in time God-Willing a faithful witness to your generosity. The question is how many children will you be willing to help? We would love to be able to build a state-of-the-art academy and orphanage for all the children someday, but Now the needs are immediate for just their daily necessities. Won’t you take just a minute to help? Go to the link below
