What's New at the AGC Baby Centre

     Hi friends!!  We have had a very busy week here in Ngata.  We began our Swahili language study this past Monday and that has kept us very busy all week.  We are thankful that we are able to have our language helper here at the Baby Centre with us.  We have class from 8:00 a.m.-11:30 a.m. then we are off for the afternoon until the evening around 7:00 p.m. when we continue with class until 9:00 p.m.  In between those times Dan is able to get some of his work here at the Baby Centre squeezed in and Carson and I get his schooling taken care of.  So, we really have no down time during the day.  Needless to say we all fall into bed at night exhausted.
     Language is going well, but it is very difficult.  Carson is catching on very well and is learning a lot more quickly than Dan and I.  Young minds are wonderful!  However, Dan and I are doing better and learning a lot.  We will continue for two more weeks with language study then we will have a break until January.  So we will be utilizing all the staff here at the Baby Centre to help us learn to speak Swahili. We told them that on certain days they are only to speak to us in Swahili.  Those will probably be some confusing days for us all until we learn a lot more!!
     We have gotten some new faces at the Baby Centre this week.  Siblings were brought by the police,  Muhoro, who is around 3 yrs. old and Wanjiru who is about 12-15 months.

     Another little one came just yesterday.  Her name is Blessed and she looks to be about 1 year old or so.  Look at her precious, sweet eyes!  Isn't she just beautiful!
     We know God has a wonderful purpose for these little ones and we are blessed to be here to love them for such a time as this.

Blessed loved to touch Babu Dan's beard.


     We wanted to introduce you to another staff member at the Baby Centre.  Some of you may already know Irene, the Baby Centre’s Social Worker.  She has been employed here for a little over 4 years now.  She lives in Nakuru and holds a Bachelor’s of Science in Family and Consumer Science.

    Irene states that the Baby Centre is “a ministry that impacts the life of innocent babies who had no hope of survival because of being abandoned.  Seeing the life of these babies being transformed from a person with no hope to a person with hope and a future since God blesses them with a family.  Many lives are transformed especially families that had no hope of having children, this happens through adoption.  Please pray for all the babies here to be placed with families.  Pray for all the staff here, we need God’s grace to continue serving in this ministry.  It is not an easy job.”
     Thank you Irene for all the work you do helping to find home for these children. You are a valuable part of this ministry.
     Please remember to pray for Irene and the staff here at the Baby Centre as well as all the children.
    I also wanted to share these pictures I took this morning showing what Dan and Carson like to do on their down time.  Here they are playing "soccer" with the toddlers.  They loved it, and the kids loved it too!

     We are very blessed that God has allowed us to play a small part of what He is doing at the AGC Baby Centre!

  1. Love reading your blog about the Baby Centre. We were in Nakuru 2005-06 when Don was Field Treasurer before Margie came. The Baby Centre was my favorite place!! Please know we are praying for you as you settle in there.
    Love and prayers,
    Pat and Don
