Holmans now call Kenya home

    Nate and Cynthia Holman, formerly of Imperial, left for Africa in September to follow a calling to become full-time missionaries.
    They sold their house and most of their belongings and traveled to Sierra Leone, a country in west Africa. They planned to work and live on a family-owned farm that is now a home for orphaned children.
    The orphanage is owned and run by a local tribal chieftain named Wellingtone “Tony” Wasike and his wife Daisy.
    Wasike received a calling from God seven years ago to create a place for orphan children and widows.
    After several trips to the farm over the last few years, the Holmans decided they were meant to move there and follow God’s lead.
    The orphanage has over 180 children they feed, educate and care for.
