Tobias came to live at THC in 2008. Before, he lived with his sister, who was just 13 at the time - there were 6 other children with him as well. Tobias loves to smile and be silly, yet he is also very shy. Through his shyness, however, he still manages to provide laughs for us all. During the months of April, August and December, the kids have a holiday from school and they are required by the Kenyan government to return ‘home’ to whatever family they might have. During holiday, Tobias goes to stay with his uncle. While his uncle does not have enough money, resources, or energy to take care of Tobias and his siblings full-time, he is willing to try his best for the children to stay with him for the short time of holiday. During his time on holiday, Tobias helps out by digging in the garden and looking after the cows and sheep. Right now, Tobias is in 7th grade. He loves to read stories and when he grows up, he wants to be a pilot. Tobias has asked that you be in prayer for him to pass his exams and also that you be in prayer for his family.
