It became obvious over a period of time, that the old mud hut of the mother of Jerry and Anna needed a replacement. It was in a very bad shape.
Then recently, anytime during day and night, strangers broke into the “house” and stole from the mother that had so little anyways. When we heard, that she even was raped one night, it was enough for us. A new hut must be build and quick!
After consultation with Eunice, the leader of our childrens home, we immediately transfered € 1.000,- for building a new hut. This covered the whole project. A few days later the hut was already completed. The mother is so happy and grateful for the support.
By the way, the break ins have stopped, and the man, who raped here, has been caught and is now spending time in prison for his crime.
Eunice visits the mother of Anna and Jerry regularly. They have built a garden together, where she grows her own vegetables.
Thank you so much and may God bless you! To all, who support Nazareth by prayer and donations.
Vor sechs Jahren, hat der Vorstand beschlossen, ein Grundstück zu kaufen (ca. zwei Hektar), um dort Mais anzupflanzen. Zum Artikel

Today I would like to report my second journey to Kenya and about the visit in our childrens home.
I took my flight on 29.12.2019 from Amsterdam to Nairobi.
After arriving in Nairobi I flew to Kisumu. On 30.12.2019 I’ve landed in Kisumu.
The home-mother Eunice and my godson Bernard collected me at the airport with a matatu. It was a big suprise and joy for me that Bernard was also there. For him it was the first trip to Kisumu and he was amazed of everything.
We went all together to the supermarket for shopping. At lunch, I invited everyone to a meal before we started our journey back to Rangwe.
As we arrived at Samsons and Eunice home everyone welcomed me. Our leader of the association and Michael from from Switzerland were already there.
We enjoyed our evening in the childrens home. During this time we had a camp with all homebased-children and children from the neighborhood from 28.12.2019 till 010.01.2020. Samson gave us a preaching an I introduced myself.
On the next day there were football games between children of Nazareth and different schools from midday till evening. It have played four teams.
In the afternoon I could visiting my parent family with Eunice. I’ve given them my gifts and the mother and children were very happy about it.
Due to the reason we had new years’s eve the children were dancing with music. Afterwards we were dancing with music. Afterwards we were sitting all together at the bonfire. My godchild Bernard was also with me and it was an unforgettable time as well as a special turn of the year for me.
On the first day of the year took place a preach in the morning.
After the preach our homebase-children went home.
One day later we went to the next biggest city to Homabay to buy food. After this we drove to Samsons birth place to Lambwe to visit his family. We also wanted to see our fontain which we have built there. We have visited poor families to give them food which we bought in Homabay. After that we could enjoy a meal in the church. As a present we received a chicken which we gave Samson and Eunice. After arriving in Rangwe we got invited for eat dinner from Yunis.
We also visited poor families in the bush to bring them food parcel together with Eunice. As well we met little Adrian and his family. Adrian is doing well after his treatment (check on the Nazareth website) and the parents were very thankful and happy.
One day later we ate the last meal together with Michael and listened to a preach.
Michael flew back on the next day. Eunice and Markus took him to the airport in Kisumu.
The new Nazareth kindergarten has started in the beginning of January with the baby class.
From day to day new children were joining the play school. As long as the new building is not finished the children are going to erudite in the new guest house where two teachers are employed.
In the evening we cooked al together Pizza and the children had a lot of fun.
On a Saturday morning we had “happy breakfast” in our childrens home.
We also visited another childrens home next to Rangwe which is called “Ebenessa” and we distributed candy. The children were very happy about our visit.
It was amazing to experience the african church service with the singing and clapping. Also to see the sunday school.
On the 12.01.2020 was our farewell dinner in the childrens home.
It was hard to say goodbye.
Markus and me where taken to the airport in Kisumu.
After visiting the touristic market we have have eaten a meal together.
Afterwards we took our flight to Nairobi. From Nairobi we flew to Amsterdam on the next day and forward to Germany. We have landed saftely in Germany.
It was a special journey and a wonderful time in Kenya, but the time went very fast.
From 08.04.19 till 14.04.19, we had a camp in the children’s home area.
In the first week of our Kenya stay we made a trip to Lambwe. The reason of the excursion was that we wanted to visit the family of Samson and to look at the fountain, which we have built there.Zum Artikel
After speaking with Eunice, head of the children’s home, we (Eunice, Anna-Lena, Bodo, Markus, Tim and Dani) have been visiting some especially poor families in the bush.Zum Artikel
liebe Freunde und Unterstützer des Nazareth Kinderheims,
der Jahresrückblick von 2018 fasst eine Auswahl von großen und kleinen Ereignissen rund um unser Kinderheim in Rangwe zusammen.Zum Artikel
Unser erster Vorsitzender Markus Walker war vom 07. August bis 07. September 2018 in unserem Kinderheim in Rangwe. Zum Artikel
Zum 12. Mal fand am 23. Juni 2018 die Aktion “Kunst im Garten – Kunst für Afrika” von Christine Nöh statt. Die Veranstaltung begann um 14 Uhr. Es kamen viele Besucher. Zum Artikel
In der Zeit vom 7. Dezember 2017 bis zum 11. Januar 2018 sind unser Vorstandsmitglied Markus Walker, seine Mutter Rose, ein Pfarrer, Roland, Christine und Sandra nach Kenia geflogen.Zum Artikel
Unser Heimleiter Samson hat eine Ladenzeile in Rangwe gekauft. Die Heimmutter Eunice ist die Leiterin. Zum Artikel
Bei ihrem Besuch in Kenia sind Markus Walker und seine Mutter Rose zusammen mit den Kindern mit dem Bus zur Kontrolle zu einem Zahnarzt gefahren. Sowohl bei den kleinen wie auch bei den größeren Kindern war eine Untersuchung notwendig.
Bei seinem letzten Besuch in Kenia hat unser Vorstandsmitglied Markus Walker zusammen mit den Kindern und Betreuern Pizza gebacken. Die Kinder hatten viel Spaß dabei.
Die Nutzung des in 2015 erweiterten Kinderheimgeländes nimmt mittlerweile Gestalt an. Auf einem Teil des Grundstücks wurden ca. 9.000 kleine Bäumchen gepflanzt. Das Ziel ist, das Holz der Bäume z.B. als Brennholz zu verkaufen. Die Bäume müssen dafür aber eine gewisse Größe erreichen. Somit wird dies wohl erst etwa in ca. 10 Jahren zu ersten Erträgen führen.
Zum 11. Mal fand am 01. Juli 2017 die Aktion “Kunst im Garten – Kunst für Afrika” von Christine Nöh statt.
Trotz des durchwachsenen Wetters fanden viele Besucher den Weg in den Garten und trugen mit ihrem Besuch zum Gelingen des Nachmittags bei.
Am 3. Juni gab es einen besonderen Einsatztag im Kinderheim.
Die 23 Heimkinder wurden in 5 Gruppen eingeteilt. Jede Gruppe bekam etwas Geld. Jetzt mussten sie Essen für eine Homebased-Familie, die ihnen zugeteilt wurde, selber einkaufen.
Nach rund 9-monatiger Bauzeit, ist der zweite Brunnen auf dem Nazarethgelände einsatzbereit. Der Bau hat sich so lange hingezogen, da die Brunnenbauer schon sehr früh auf Grundwasser gestoßen sind und somit nicht weiter gegraben werden konnte.
Erfreulicherweise konnte das Kinderheimgelände erweitert werden: durch glückliche Umstände war es uns letzte Woche möglich, das Nachbargrundstück zu kaufen – und somit haben die Kinder zukünftig mehr Platz zum spielen und der Mais- und Gemüseanbau im Kinderheim kann erweitert werden.
