Brother Cleophus shared with us that Christianity is new to this area.
Good news came in March that the Children's Rosary group had formed and 100 children were attending. He shared that the group is very strong!! Meetings are held each Saturday at 3PM local time. There was immediate need of more Rosaries and Children's Rosary materials with so many children attending. Members of the Children's Rosary here in Connecticut USA set to work putting together a special package for the children in Rombo. Two-hundred and twenty rosaries were counted and packaged along with a Children's Rosary CD, DVD and books. We also included a donated picture of Our Lady. The package is currently en route to Br. Cleophus and the children in Kenya.
It is difficult to receive packages in this rather remote region. Brother Cleophus will have to travel a great distance to another region to receive the package. There is great sacrifice but also great joy at seeing so many children coming together in prayer. These children join children in 12 countries around the world also meeting in their Children's Rosary prayer groups. A special thank you to all those children and adults who handmade all the Rosaries that were sent. We also thank those who provide donations to help meet the financial needs to send these materials and replenish our Children's Rosary books and materials. Thank you all.
