As we write tonight it is with very mixed feelings. We are so very sad at our loss here on earth of Bill Dearmon, however celebrate with him knowing he has been fully healed now and is with our Savior forever. The impact that Bill and Melody made on this community is tremendous. I have spoken with many of the staff over the last few days, and have heard many stories of how they and their families were impacted by what Bill and Melody started. The AGC Baby Centre not only rescues the little ones that are abandoned all over Kenya, but provides jobs for a large number of people in the community. It also reaches into the economy of the Nakuru area in all of the business we do with the local merchants.
God uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things. Thank you to Bill and Melody for hearing God's call and saying yes to His leading. This past week has really been a good representation of why the Baby Centre is here. We have had 6 children come to us over the last eight days. Four of them have been a week old or less. Almost every one of these would have surely died if there had not been a place of refuge for them. Thank you to all of you who play such an important part in continuing the legacy that Bill and Melody started. Below are two pictures of babies that you may have already seen.
Here is Billy Ray(left) and Melody Ann the two latest additions to the Baby Centre.
Please pray with all of us here in Kenya for the Dearmon family as they grieve the passing of Bill. He will be greatly missed, but never forgotten.
