Family Love ~ GOD'S Love
By Dawn Brown
|Elizabeth Mativo and Janet Dailing at the start of the widows and orphans ministry in 2009.|
I have the best mom ever! Janet Dailing raised her kids to feel loved, secure, and to be moral and independent, among many other things. She’s always been there when we needed her. She gave up so much to help my family when I had lymphoma at the age of 34 with 2 little boys.

How can I let these women and children down? How can I let you down? How can I walk away? Most importantly, how can I say no to the Lord? I cannot.
|Agnus cares for orphaned children & is dedicated to working with the Sunday School children.|
It’s a bittersweet time. My mom leaving the home she loves, me stepping back from ministries that are important to me, the joy of having my mom in our home and privilege of serving her and the Lord in our new adventure. My desire is that, with the Lord’s help, we can be there for my mom like she has been there for all of us for so many years.
As we continue to move forward, I hope and pray that you who donate to Child Arise will continue to remember those “widows and orphans” in Mbooni. I hope that you will give me grace and forgive me if I’m not able to provide you with the updates and information on a regular basis, like I have in the past. The needs will still be there.

Pray for my daughter Irene & her new husband, Kevin. They were married in January!

Praise for how far we have come in our community because of our blessings from the church in American.
