Upon spending time at the El Shaddai Boys’ Home in Kenya you will quickly gather that this group of boys is full of wonderful but very different personalities. One boy has a quiet, very observant personality. James is content being alone, so to find him, you may have to look a little harder to see what he is up to.

James’ mother was never home, so he was left in the care of his grandmother and the man she lives with. His grandmother would complete odd jobs for small pay, but between her poor mental state and very little money, James was left to fend for himself, often gathering food from garbage heaps. 

James was brought to the El Shaddai Boys’ Home by his grandmother who pled that James be taken in. 

At first, James struggled to adjust. Being taken care of was not something he understood. But over time through the caregivers love and patience, James begin to open up and accept the care of those around him.

Pastor Steve will proudly tell you that James is a good boy. He has started school since coming to El Shaddai and has voiced his dreams of being a doctor someday. After spending some time with James, I can proudly say that I believe he would make an amazing doctor. 

Thank you for your support of The Boaz Project and those we partner with. Your support has given James a safe space to grow and opportunities which he may never have had. Thank you for having a heart for orphans. 

Doings small things with great love,
