Julius Korir

Julius Korir is an orphan who was raised by Pastor John Chirchir in the Tumaini Orphanage in the poverty-stricken village of Naibor. Julius is an adult now, and is one of our most productive evangelists.

Last Christmastime, around midnight, a band of cattle rustlers invaded the village and and attempted to steal the orphanage’s few cows. In trying to repel the rustlers, Julius was slashed in the face and lost his right eye.

Most young men would have been very bitter over such a tragic loss. However, Julius has had a very godly spirit throughout his recovery. His humble testimony of faith in God’s plan, and his forgiving spirit, has been a wonderful testimony to his community and to the churches in which he preaches. What a fine young man!

We took Julius to a mission eye hospital last week. They discovered that the retina in his good eye had also been damaged. The surgeon perfomed laser surgery to reattach the retina, and Julius’ vision is much better. Please pray for this fine young preacher! If you’d like to contribute something small to his eye treatments and installation of an artificial eye, that would be a welcome encouragement to Brother Julius, but in any case, please pray for God’s hand of protection upon this fine young evangelist.

Julius is just one of many fine young men which are emerging from the ministry of Pastor John Chirchir at Naibor. Please pray for Pastor John, also. He carries a heavy burden – but always has a smile on his face!
