Fall 2016 Newsletter
Born the 1st of 4 children into an unloving family,
abuse, despair, and hopelessness reigned over most
of Elizabeth Chepkemboi’s life. Absent the money or
desire to send her to school, her family forced her to
work at the age of 8. Employers regularly beat her
for the next 6 years until returning her home to an
unwelcoming Aunt. Desperately seeking love,
Elizabeth married at 15 and quickly had two children.
Sadly, her husband drank and abused her while
married to another woman as well. Finding temporary
refuge at her stepfather’s, she resorted to making
the local Changaa brew to support her children.
Threatening to report Elisabeth’s illegal activity, evil and manipulative men blackmailed her into having sex with them.
Before relinquishing all hope, a pastor told her of Mully Children’s Family. The Yatta campus shortly thereafter opened its loving arms to Elizabeth where her life trans formation began. Today, she and her 3 children flourish at the womanfocused campus where she trains to be a hairdresser. James 1:12 captures Elizabeth’s miraculous life story: Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.
How is Mully Children’s Family Different from other Charities?
In the 1st of a 3 part series, we address this common question with one of our key differentiators sustainability. Driven by Dr. Mulli’s own personal experience and desire of working for food instead of asking for it, Mully Children’s Family fully embraces the doctrine of teaching people how to fish. In addition to feeding the children, initiatives such as growing French beans generate a financially attractive byproduct income. Simply put, investing in sustainability drives a higher financial return which, in turn, can be reinvested. While sustainable programs contribute 30% towards MCF’s annual budget, the goal is to reach 70% in the next few years.
Environmental sustainability generates its own unique benefits as well. By planting over 1 million trees, Dr. Mulli’s wisdom and vision transformed an arid climate to one generating plentiful rainfall to grow crops. Sustainability programs also benefit the community financially as MCF employs an average 500 local residents. Should anyone ask why sustainability is so important at MCF, give them the simple math:
higher sustainability = saving more children’s lives!

While MCF considers education as the most powerful and effective tool for transforming society, the guiding principle for the school is to leverage higher education to develop students into disciples for spreading the Gospel.

He took a little child whom he placed among them. Taking the child in his arms, he said to them, “Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me”. Mark 9: 3637
