The interior view of the newly built Kwetu Home of Peace Chapel.

The Kwetu Home of Peace Chapel has signified new beginnings for boys in our home. The newly built chapel was completed on the 15th day of July 2020, is an enduring landmark amidst the growing Kwetu Home of Peace boys population. It shall serve as an outreach tool for the boys and provide comfort to hundreds of boys who will live at KHP.

The back-right window represents an important milestone in Jesus’ life. A large window shows Joseph welcoming baby Jesus into his open arms. Each window is a reminder that God loves children and welcomes anyone with pain and suffering.

As Christians, I am sure you will understand the importance of giving our children a good grounding in our beliefs about Christ and the Lord, and this is what our Home’s main goal is! We want to teach the children in the best way possible and help them to develop into strong and honest Christian adults.

Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it. — PROVERBS 22:6

The stained-glass window on the front-right side of the chapel depicts the visit of the wise men. The beautiful picture on the window essentially tells of the homage of these “Magi” to the one who was born king of the Jews.

By helping us build this Chapel, you’ve not only done a big favor towards our boys, but you’ve also helped the entire Kwetu Home of Peace. This is because the Chapel will also be used for many other things, other than Sunday school, like all meetings, band practices, fundraising events and much more.

The Chapel is at the heart of Kwetu Home of Peace Drop-in Centre, just as Christ is at the heart of our ministries. It is more than a building. It is a reminder to every one of who we are and what we stand for.

As John Chege, a 14-year boy from our Center, says, “Sunday school is something which I can’t wait for each week. I get to see all my friends, laugh, and play and learn about Jesus! The stories that are told are so exciting and I love learning about Jesus and all the things he did. He is my Superhero! And gone are the days when ugly weather could lead to cancellation of Sunday service.”
