Today The LORD's Child mission team is setting up a clinic in The Orbit Village. There they will be ministering to the physical and spiritual needs of many children.
The Orbit Village is located about 20 miles from downtown Nairobi.
It is a small, dusty village inside of a rock quarry.
You can see a satellite picture of the location here.
Cyndy Walters formed The Orbit Village Project
after visiting the worker's camp in 1995.
"There within the rock, I felt the presence of Jesus Christ in a life changing force. I believe it was as powerful as if I had been with the women leaving the tomb that day when they met the resurrected Christ. He had been waiting for me there at Orbit...
I felt His arms reach out, welcoming me."
The Orbit School of the Cross was started in 1996 to help educate the children whose parents worked in local quarries outside of Nairobi.
Today Orbit hosts over 500 students from Baby Class to High School.
The Orbit Child Refuge has rescued many children and given them a family to belong to forever. Many of the children lost their parents to AIDS related illnesses, some were abandoned and others were failing to thrive in their home situation.
The LORD's Child mission team with be at The Orbit Village all week
and I will be sharing their stories of all God is doing there.
Would you join me in praying for the missions team
and the children they will be serving?
