On a table, in the foyer of Calvary Pentecostal Tabernacle, South Brook, sits a wooden box in which coins are placed from time to time by various individuals, to help the orphaned children at Turkana Nursery School in Kenya, Africa.
These funds help provide a mug of hot porridge every morning to these children, a good diet for their healthy survival, clean and safe drinking water, assistance with some medical expenses and school uniforms, plus helping to fund the teacher and cook, as well as helping with the upkeep of their building.
On Sunday, October 14, 2012, an announcement was placed in the church bulletin reminding those who would like to help a little more to do so over the next couple of weeks, since October is the month set aside for Women’s Ministries to send an offering for this very important project.
Sitting in the congregation were three children who were saving their money to buy a trampoline. In reading this announcement, they told their mommy that they didn’t really need a trampoline right now, and they would like to send the money they had collected so far, to the children at the Turkana Nursery School.
On Monday night, October 15th, they brought their money to the church as ladies were gathering for their Women’s Ministries Meeting. The ladies felt they deserved recognition for their kind and caring gesture and decided that it was worth sharing with others.
As the children at Turkana Nursery School will be blessed to receive, we know these children will be blessed by giving with such BIG HEARTS to others in need!
