Today we got to interview a couple recipients of micro-loans from Mission of Hope and it was touching to hear their stories. We also got to meet a micro-loan group at one of the businesses in the marketplace and it was amazing to see how much these loans have transformed their lives and how it has made a big dent into breaking the cycle of poverty.
We also continued to do work in Area 2 of Mathare where we did a clinic and taught kids. In the afternoon we got to meet with the kids our church sponsors. The kids were apprehensive at first but once we gave them their packages and shared with them about the people who were praying and loving on them back home, they were instantly filled with joy. God is good!
One of the recipients was a boy names James. We later got to visit his home to rbring the light to only to find out his home was too unstable to work on. His house was no bigger than a typical bathroom in the U.S. and it housed his mother and 2 other siblings. His mother (the family's sole provider) was very sick and has been for a while. It was heartbreaking to experience. There are hundreds of homes like these in Mathare. Please continue to pray for them.
