San Saba's own Rikki Tai Ferrell, daughter of Rick and Sheila Ferrell, has joined a long-term missionary work in Maai Mahiu, Kenya. She will be working at an orphanage called Naomi's Village which opened its doors in January of 2011 to 25 children. In Kenya, it is estimated that 700 children a day become orphaned. A transient male population, disease and poverty leave many children hungry, homeless and often abused. Part of Rikki's job will be counseling, teaching skills training, and loving the children through the trauma they have experienced. The orphanage is doing a vital work and Rikki feels called by God to volunteer for a year at Naomi's Village. She is asking for prayer support from the community and financial support as well.
