Jill Thomas, African team leader for Cherish Our Children International, will speak at 10 a.m. Sunday, April 26, at the Loomis Basin Congregational United Church of Christ during the worship service. The church is located at 6440 King Road. A question-and-answer per-iod will follow to learn more about Thomas’ experiences with the AIDS orphanage. Thomas has been working through Houston-based COCI to provide support, both financial and instructional, to the Kenyan AIDS orphanage Children First in Kisumu. It houses 15 orphans and operates a free preschool serving more than 70 at-risk children. Thomas takes no salary and pays for her own yearly trip to Kenya.
