Sponsorship Needed ~ Please Pray

Missions of Hope enrolled Kipngeno in university in Kisii Town, Kenya where he is majoring in pharmaceutical studies.  Kipnegeno waited years after graduating from high school to be able to start university.  Several times we thought we had a donor for him.  Several times our hopes, but more  importantly, Kipngeno's hopes, were dashed because the would-be donors never followed through.

Kipngeno kept busy on the farm while he waited for his time to start university studies.
In September 2011, we took a leap of faith and enrolled Kipngeno in school and have managed to help him through 4 months of student housing and all needs associated with living in a new town and going to university.

The term finishes at the end of December and we are appealing for someone who feels led to help Kipngeno, to come forward.
Are you the one that can help him?  
You would be changing a life for the greater good if you can help.

Jonah pays a visit to Kipngeno. Jonah is on far left, Kipngeno on the far right with his lab coat and stethoscope, a friend of his in the middle. Can you imagine how excited Kipngeno must be?

Once Kipngeno finishes his education he will also be added to the ranks of the medical profession. Kenya is greatly in need of medical personnel.

According to Oxfam,  there were only 14 doctors for every 100,000 people in Kenya in 2006.
There is a critical shortage of doctors and specialists in Kenya.
Food for thought.

  1. May he reach his ambition. shared your article at facebook.

    Here's my mellow yellowplease come and see. Thank you!

  2. Thank you, Ms. burrito for sharing this need on FB. I appreciate it ;-)

  3. Hi, I can put this on my blog, but I'll need to wait until after Christmas. Is that OK?


  4. Hi Linda,Kipngeno needs a sponsor by January so it would be great to get the word out there sooner. If we don't have a sponsor before Christmas then by all means please put it on your blog. The more widely the word gets out the better for this young man. Thanks so much!

  5. Hi Penny, Kipnego has been on my prayer list since you first sent him to study. May God work in a kind donor's heart and this bright young man can get sponsorship by January. Bless you for caring, Penny. love and hugs Jo

  6. Jo, thank you for such an encouraging comment. Your prayers on behalf of Kipngeno are so appreciated! Hugs.xx

  7. That's not nice that the would be donors backed out, what a shame. I hope there will be some donors to help him. It's not easy to find sponsors these days, times are hard. Here in Italy things are getting harder and harder, people are getting loans even to buy things for Christmas. I don't approve of it, if you have no money why get a loan? Better just give something simple or do without something. Anyway all the best to the young fellow. I wish I could help but my husband is retired and both my daughter and I are looking for jobs. Thank you so much Joyful for stopping by, it's so nice of you. You're such a kind person. God bless you and all the work you're doing, we need more people like you.

  8. Hello Francesca, thank you so much for your visit. I understand your situation in Italy. I know times are hard there as I see on the news what is happening. I agree that it isn't a good idea to borrow money to buy Christmas gifts. It is the spirit of the season we should celebrate and the gifts are not the way.

    I'm glad I "met" you and through you, your lovely daughter who brings joy through her music. I will add you and your daughter to my prayer list and pray that you will be able to find work. Thank you for your kind words to me. I appreciate that God has given me a kindness and that I can use it to try and help others.

    Grazie ciao belli e molti altri.

  9. Touchy words here, thanks for the visit. May the Lord bless them...

  10. Wow...that is really a shortage of doctors. Sending prayers up and I tweeted this on twitter.


  11. Thank you sis, Unfailing Love.

  12. Yes LV, there is a dire need of medical personnel in Kenya. Thank you for helping to get the word out about the need for a donor. Blessings :-)

  13. I will share to FB.. I have just sent money to my sponsored children for Christmas, so I can't help at this time.A doctor friend of mine works here in Australia for nine months and then flies with his wife to south Africa to give his services free of charge. They have just gone again. May Bless bless everyone who helps others and may more people do so. xxx

  14. Hi CM, I understand. Your prayers will be appreciated :-) Blessings of the season to you.

  15. If I put this today, would that be OK? Both on my blog and facebook?

  17. btw, do you know the name of the Southern most tip of Canada?

  18. Hi Ann, thank you for your thoughtful gesture and for writing about the Missions of Hope and Kipngeno's needs on your blog. This is exactly the kind of thing that I hope others can and will do.

  21. A heart felt Prayer,
    Dear Father, in the name of Jesus I come to you on behalf of Kipngeno, I thank you that he desires to be a doctor and will this schooling he will be able to help a multitude of people. Father, I thank you that you are touching the hearts of men and women right now across america. I thank you that your people are willing to make the little sacrifice and give up their star bucks for a couple of months, so that this young man will be able to finish school.. I thank-you that you are big and nothing is to small for you. At this time I pray that you would bless this young man with skill to learn quickly, and wisdom and your knowledge so that he can be your hands and heart. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

  22. Dear Brenda, thank you so much for your loving heart and heartfelt prayer for Kipngeno. I'm trusting that the Lord will make a way, somehow.
