We have a new member!! Her name is Joyce, she is 43 years old and is an older sister of Hannah’s (a lady who began the program a couple weeks ago!). She has three children but only her two youngest will be with her here - they are in 5th and 3rd grade. Thankfully, the Lord has freed her from an abusive marriage and has brought her to us. She has found a safe place now to heal and to be loved! We are so happy to have her as part of the community and know the Lord will do mighty things through her! #kenyamissions #crownofbeauty

Meet Hannah! She has only been with us a week and is already using a sewing machine (the women first learn how to hand stitch)! She is 31 years old, our youngest student so far. She has a boy who is 9 and in class 4 and the cutest little baby girl, who is 7 months old! 
Unfortunately, her husband abandoned her when their first child was a young toddler. She did what she could to support her son, by washing clothes and cleaning for other people. After 6 years, her husband came back saying he had changed and wanted to make a life with her. Hannah wanted to do the Christian thing and believe him, so she give him a second chance. Within a few months, she became pregnant again and he was furious with her! He immediately abandoned her again and has never contacted her since.

Jesus has been Hannah’s savior for 13 years; she believes He loves her and will always provide! We are just getting to know her and are excited to see her flourish! #crownofbeauty #kenyamissions #godisgood

Last week our precious graduate, Anjeline, had the opportunity most women in Kenya don’t have the chance to do. She was invited to present a school uniform, that Anjeline designed herself, to the Kaptembwa Primary School’s faculty to approve her to make their uniforms for the children! Anjeline went above and beyond for these teachers, bringing lunch that she cooked and paid for entirely by herself. They loved how generous she was and loved her design! We are so proud of what she is accomplishing and we are excited to walk through this new journey with her. 
Janet was also able to share about Crown of Beauty, bringing more awareness to the program. Please join with us in celebrating what the Lord is doing!!

We have been working on a new logo for a couple months now and we are excited to finally share it! 
Janet was inspired for the name of this ministry when she read Isaiah 61:1-3, "The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion - to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirt of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor." Expect new and exciting things over the next few months!!! The Lord is good!  #kenysmissions #crownofbeauty #familypreservation

Esther Amoiti is a single mother of 3 and is 27 years old. She became a widow several years ago when her husband died leaving her with two small children and no income and no home. As she struggled to make ends meet, moving around from friend's house to friend's house, she met a man who promised her the moon! He said he would take care of and provide for her and her two children. She thought she found love again! But when he got her pregnant, he became violent to her and told her he was already married and didn't want her or that baby. He even threatened her life if she ever tried to talk to him again. Broken hearted and now with a new born, she had nowhere to go and no means of survival. The Crown of Beauty ministry has provided her and her children with a nice place to live and a skill so
she can earn a living and provide for her family. Even with a nursing baby, she is able to sew beautiful things! Her smile and joy has returned and she knows God has provided for her and her family in this very special ministry!

Anna Agatia, also known to many as Mama Moi, is 45 years old and has one son, Moi who will be 20 this year. Anna became a widow when Moi was a young boy and has lived as a single mom for manyl years. About 10 years ago, Anna married again, but that man left her when he discovered she couldn't have any more children. She lives alone with her son and has no other family. Anna has never had any formal schooling and has provided, sparingly at best, for herself and her son by working in the fields and at other hard manual labor jobs when she can find them.
When I met her, she didn't even know how to write her own name and now she is sewing beautiful things and is learning scriptures in English!!! She is the perfect example of the saying, "You're never too old to learn new things"! She accepted Christ as her savior last year and was baptized. Her countenance and outlook on life has completely changed and she feels like she finally has a future!

Anjeline Bilinga is a 45 year old mother of 7 children, ages ranging from 23 to 4 years. The youngest was her sister's child and when Anjeline's sister died of cancer 3 weeks after Kelly was born, she adopted him even though she had her own 6 month old at home. Anjeline has heard many promises from men who said they would be by her side, only to be abandoned and deserted again and again. As a young girl, schooling for her was not a priority of her parents, so she has only completed a 4th grade level of education. She has tried very hard to provide for her children by washing clothes for others getting only $3.00 a day, but with so many children, finding lasting jobs was virtually nonexistent. But now she is learning to sew and is one of our best students! She is a very quick learner and truly loves what she is doing! She accepted Christ as her savior on her first day at the Crown of Beauty ministry and was baptized shortly afterwards. Now, she is learning a trade and life-skills that will help her provide for her family, giving them a better future!
