As if the trauma on especially the boys were not enough, the Ministry of Education - when visiting the school - then decided that the bording school (of only the boys) should be closed with immediate effect. It's a well-known fact that people (especially children) who have experienced trauma, should stay in their routine as far as possible. Many of the boys witnessed the grusame scene of the murder, and both our boys told us that those images haunt them day and night. But ... it is what it is, so we were forced to look for outside accommodation.
Thomas is a Form 4 student who is doing is KCSE this year, so it was imperative that we find him a place near the school where he can learn undisturbed. Fortunately he is already 20years old, so that helped when he announced that he, and two other Form 4 boys, want to share a place near the school.
After much prayer, the Lord provided for Kemboi a place at our friends' home, not too far from Hopewell School. He is now only in Form 2, so obviously we wanted him in a more secure environment.

Obviously this is bringing about extra expenses as we now need to cater for their needs on a monthly basis. Kemboi lost his sponsor somewhere during the course of last year, so right now we are praying for God's provision to be released.
Thank you for standing with them. God bless.
