Prayer Partner Program:
Change a life for a student at Nambale Magnet School
We're so grateful to everyone who donated Covid relief funds to help Nambale Magnet School in Kenya. Here's what Nambale Magnet was able to do with your support:
Dear Pastor Sandy:
With no government funding and less than a week’s notice, the Nambale Magnet School scrambled to adequately prepare to safely welcome children back to the school as you know. Ever a friend and partner, the North Church Congregation rallied to help us with this seemingly insurmountable obstacle.
You and the North Church have been so supportive of the Nambale Magnet School for so long and at no time have we ever been more grateful! On October 12th, with just 5 days notice, we were able to receive the 4th and 8th graders back to school.
Attached are the pictures of the new wash stations, masks signage and other measures we were able to acquire through your generosity. The fact that the school was able to open partially and on time was a miracle for us.
I hope that you can pass our collective gratitude for your kind hearts and can do spirit. What you do has a real impact in the world and I hope you can thank all of your congregation on our behalf.
Blessings to you all with our deepest gratitude,
Martine and Evalyn
We were delighted to have Reverend Evalyn Wakhusama from the Nambale Magnet School in Kenya join us for service in February 2019. Reverend Evalyn is a lovely inspiration to all who meet her, and we feel blessed to be a part of her mission to educate and improve the lives of children who have been orphaned or rendered vulnerable by the AIDS crisis. In addition, money raised from the sale of African jewelry at our Fall Festival, at the Woodbury Christmas Festival, and at our Flea Market and Craft Show in April was donated to the Nambale School.
The Prayer Partner program, which matches Nambale School students with members of our church, is another way that we support this wonderful endeavor. We continue to receive updated photos of the children whom we remember each day with a prayer for their well being.
