Prayer is the light of the soul

“There is nothing more worthwhile than to pray to God and to converse with him, for prayer unites us with God as His companions. As our bodily eyes are illuminated by seeing the light, so in contemplating God our soul is illuminated by Him. Of course, the prayer I have in mind is no matter of routine, it is deliberate and earnest. It is not tied down to a fixed timetable; rather it is a state which endures by night and day.”

By the grace of God Saturday, 22 July, 2017, we received two cartons full of textbooks.  This was a donation from a local private school which is 300 km away from St. Barnabas.  Join us in a thanksgiving prayer to God for them.

On 28 July 2017, His Eminence Archbishop Makarios, Metropolitan of Kenya visited our orphanage and education center.  The joy and love of Christ he brings with him blesses us all.  In his message he spoke about the good work being done in educating the children not only with regular classes but, more so, with the spiritual teachings and food given by the Grace of God.  Further, His Eminence made a special request to all supporters to please share the good news of the work being done at St. Barnabas with friends and relatives so that it may continue.  The food situation is dire in the area due to lack of rain for the crops.  Calling the teachers “heroes” Archbishop Makarios commended them for their dedication and diligence to the work of the mission.  “The children are happy,” he said.  A good sign of the work being accomplished at St. Barnabas Orphanage and Education Center.
