Bloom Launchesd as an Arm of Hope4Sudan’s Compass Ministry
Latoya McClerkin has a heart for ministry to those with special needs. She has served as a volunteer teacher at Eldoret Special Needs School. The Lord put on her heart to organize an outdoor event to draw special needs families together and offer them fun activities, helpful information, and meaningful support.
In May of 2018, that vision was fulfilled with the first “Bloom Event.” Families gathered on the campus of East Africa Bible College in Eldoret, Kenya, to enjoy activities such as painting, a jumping castle, music, and dance. They were given refreshment not only for the body, but also for the soul.
Bloom is an extension of Hope4Sudan’s Compass ministry and was launched in Kenya as a pilot program. The plan is to eventually take Bloom to South Sudan where children with disabilities are socially shunned and often hidden away, chained to beds, and sometimes killed. Bloom is destined to make a spiritual impact on these families.
