Mornings are spent together in fellowship at the chapel. The sweet sound of many voices lifting up praises to the Lord can be heard by people walking outside. This time allows teachers and students to come together before the start of a busy school day. Psalm 59:16
Adolescence is the phase of life that most kids are in when they go to the streets. At this age, kids are growing the most physically and intellectually. MITS is helping to foster healthy growth at the center in Eastleigh and at the school in Kamulu by providing basic needs and guidance. Proverbs 22:6
Devotional is a daily occurrence at the Learning Center girls dorm. This time is used to sing, pray, and encourage one another throughout the week. I can hear their joyful voices singing every night around 8pm and it is so sweet to hear their daily devotion to worshiping our Lord. Psalm 100:2
Excitement was the first emotion that I felt when I got to meet the students on May 23. This excitement has only grown as I have gotten to celebrate their own achievements and triumphs. So far peak excitement has been seeing so many students being baptized! Romans 12:11
Investing in others is such an important part of what MITS staff does on a daily basis. You can see the impact of the Eastleigh team on the kids at the center because they come back week after week! You can also see the impact that the Kamulu team has on the students through the transformations that they go through from intake to graduation. Colossians 3:23
Nakuona means “I see you” in Swahili. MITS embodies this so well by seeing street children as God’s beautiful creation, instead of what others might see as worthless. This desire to help street kids in Eastleigh was sparked by the founders Charles and Darlene whose heart aligned with God’s in seeing others. Genesis 16:13
Transformation is such a powerful part of each student’s testimony. Even I have seen the difference in confidence from the children at the bases to the learning center students to the skills students. God sure is moving hearts and changing lives through MITS! 2 Corinthians 5:17
Helping others is just an unspoken rule at MITS. Whether it is cutting vegetables in the kitchen, teaching in the classroom, or fixing a toilet; students and staff alike are so willing to help one another with a smile! Matthew 5:16
