As 2015 has finally come to a close, the time has come for Nosim Maasai Mission to begin preparations for 2016. As the year begins, it is our practice to evaluate the previous year and look ahead to see how God will bless us. While many people are creating New Year’s Resolutions, often filled with the promise to be healthier, spend more time with family, give up the bad habits we reveled in in the past year, the Nosim Mission is creating resolutions as well.
- We hope to find sponsors for the 25 children waiting to attend school
- We hope to tell more people about the inequalities amongst the Maasai people.
- And as always we hope to spread the word of God to people all over the world.
The beginning of the New Year is when it is important for us to reevaluate our Mission and determine if we are being diligent at reaching our goal. Our mission which is to promote and preserve the colorful culture of the Maasai people, by creating an opportunity for education for all, while embracing the Christian philosophy can simply be designed as “Each One, Reach One, To Teach One”.
Our co-founders, Nancy Manor and Oltetia Munke worked to establish this Mission. Are we all doing our part to reach that goal? Acts 20:35 states that “In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is said more blessed to give than to receive.'” For the Maasai people with their culture steeped in traditions they are in need of our help now. They rely heavily on pastoral practices, with their now limited farm land, the children of the Maasai need hope for a brighter future than can go beyond what dry earth can provide. Through educating the youth of the Maasai, we can give this culture the hope of a brighter tomorrow.
