The work of God unfolding at the Genesis Home

The work of God unfolding at the Genesis Home

“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”

Since the 5th of July, Jayden and Maya were taken from the rescue center and given a family.  From the 18th of October, Moses and Naomi are safe and secure in a home, part of a family.  These beautiful children have gifts and callings on their lives from our LORD.  They have friends and a church family that support them.  With health and strength, they continue to grow and flourish.  The Mudave family has grown in size and what it means to be the LORD’s hands and feet to each other, demonstrating the adoptive family that God Himself initiated. 

The Mudave family has gone through great changes in the last year.  First, Jayden Solomon and Maya took the family of five to a family of seven.  With five children, three of them under five years old, Franco and Nancy, the Genesis Home parents, have a busy and joyful home.  They dedicate themselves to the selfless care of their children while implementing and building on the godly practices of family devotion time, worship, and prayer. Shortly after taking in Jayden and Maya,the opportunity came to bring in a set of twins, Moses and Naomi, they grew their family again.  Franco and Nancy have sought to mimic our LORD’s heart for adoption. As Romans, 8:14 says, “For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.”  

Jayden Solomon was abandoned on the streets when he was 1 year old.  He was sent to a rescue center where we met him and brought to the Genesis Home at 4 years old.  Jayden has since been enrolled in school, and gained friendships, always dawning a contagious smile.  Now Jayden can say that one of the best things that happens to him is, “eating the food Mommy cooks.”  He loves playing with the neighbor children and his brothers and sisters, especially playing football.  Jayden tells his Mom and Dad that he wants to be a pastor when he grows up.  

Maya who was dropped at a rescue center at 2 months old was brought into the Genesis Home at 8 months old coming with obstacles with her physical health but is growing and establishing relationships with her family and those at church.  Naomi and Zemira have especially bonded with Maya and love to play with her and keep her entertained.  

Moses and Naomi are now happy to go to school and attend children’s ministry at church when originally they dreaded the new environment.  Moses tells us that the best thing that has happened to him lately is learning to read while Naomi proclaims she is, “happy for her teacher.”  Both children say that learning about Moses in the Old Testament is now one of their favorite Bible lessons and that their happiest memory to date is the day they left the rescue center.  What an amazing analogy, that God who called his people from bondage and suffering in Egypt would also have a calling on the young lives of Moses and Naomi and has brought them out of their suffering.  Now Naomi, who once would fall asleep to avoid the stress of school, desires to be a teacher.  What a testimony of how God can work in our lives!

 Zemira and Zion, the Mudave’s first children, have also grown during this season.  They have experienced the death of their brother Zayne Zuberi just before taking in Moses and Naomi.  God has been working with them through their heartbreak to open their hearts to new siblings and heal what has been broken.  Now Zion can say, the best thing that happens for him at home is playing hide and seek with all his siblings.  Zemira tells us that her happiest memory is when Maya, Jayden, Moses, and Naomi united with them.  God alone can do these things!  

Franco and Nancy have overcome great pain this past year with the loss of their son.  They have continued to seek the Lord and put Him first, sharing that the verses the LORD has used in their lives lately come from Job and 1 Timothy 1:12 which says, “I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me trustworthy, appointing me to his service.”  They know that God has called them and equips them to serve His children and just like Job, though they do not always understand why God would allow the death of a child they do know who He is and that He will sustain them and give them HOPE.  

 Please continue to pray for our Hope Homes.  The children and parents are doing the work of God and are blessed to see His hand in their daily lives.  We are blessed to look back over this year and witness all that He is doing.
