They all (Paul and Eleanor, as well as their son, Jon and his wife, Molly and family) moved onto the property in April 2003. Then in July of the same year, they broke ground for the construction of Faith House, our two story building housing four apartments. Just before dedicating it Faith House in May of 2004, the Lord provided our first house parents, Zedekiah and Mary Mkagwa. Soon after that, we welcomed our first two King’s kids.
From May 2004 to the beginning of 2006, we took in a total of six children. The year 2006 will be remembered as one of great change, as we grew from six to nineteen children. Each child came a unique story and a God given purpose stamped upon their lives. We have seen the purpose of God in bringing each of them individually to us. Our staff also grew from seven people to seventeen. In 2007 we grew 25 children and 20 staff. By mid 2008, we had 36 kids and 21 staff.
Today, we have over 50 King’s Kids, about 25 staff, a 4-home complex, an on-site fully staffed school, a farm, and transition housing for our over 18 year old young adults who are building the final foundations for their adult lives.
