Past, future Bears team up to serve Zambian orphans
Updating a previous story… The Waco Tribune-Herald reports that Kristin Elliott, an 18-year-old incoming Baylor freshman, has far surpassed her goal of raising $60,000 for an orphanage in
Kenya Zambia. As of last week, following her appearance on ABC’s World News Tonight, more than $100,000 had poured in for the orphanage!
Thanks to the generous donations, “Kristin’s Miracle House” will now be joined by “Kristin’s Miracle Clinic for AIDS Orphans” as part of the Tree of LIFE Children’s Village outside the city of Lusaka,
Kenya’s Zambia’s capital. The Village will eventually include 25 homes housing over 300 children; Kristin’s Miracle House is home number seven. Tax-deductible donations are still being accepted.
There’s another Baylor connection here, too, that I only just learned about. The Village is coordinated by Family Legacy Missions International — which was founded by 1986 Baylor alum Greer Kendall. As long as Kristin’s cancer doesn’t return, she’ll be headed back to Zambia on another trip with the organization next month. It’s truly awe-inspiring when God works like this — and great to see both past and future Baylor Bears able to work together to serve others so well!
Sic ’em, Kristin and Greer, and Baylor alums serving everywhere!
