Everlyn says, “I have always wanted to be the hands and feet for Jesus and serve children and the less fortunate to help them develop to their full potential. My goal is to see every child develop fully regardless of their background, race, or family history. One child at a time.”

Irene

Irene serves as the Baby Centre’s Social Worker.  She has been  employed here since 2008.  She lives in Nakuru and holds a Bachelor’s of Science in Family and Consumer Science.

Irene states that the Baby Centre is a ministry that impacts the life of innocent babies who had no hope of survival because of being abandoned.  Seeing the life of these babies being transformed from a person with no hope to a person with hope and a future since God blesses them with a family.  Many lives are transformed especially families that had no hope of having children, this happens through adoption.  Please pray for all the babies here to be placed with families.  Pray for all the staff here, we need Gods grace to continue serving in this ministry.  It is not an easy job.”
