MICHELLE ROBINETTE'S STORY, THE BEGINNING OF THE NEST-
There I was on Jamaican soil -- January 17, 1998. I could hardly believe that it had finally happened, but it had and I was there. Alongside were my three foster children that I adopted in the US to bring with me and start a new life -- a life in a country foreign to us.
I did not have one doubt at that moment that this was God's will for my life, to start Robin's Nest Children's Home for those children who were without a home. It was started to provide a safe Christian environment for children to learn and grow. My church family back in the States had given me a prayer/send off service in which the pastor's words were firmly planted in my heart. He prayed that God would be with me for all the problems I would have to face, and which at that point I couldn't even imagine. I remember when he prayed I wondered what could be so unexpected that God and I couldn't go through together with Him at the helm. I didn't know then that his prayers would be prophetic. My pastor and his wife had spent many years in Africa as missionaries and they had a knowledge about the difficulties that can arise.
Throughout the first year I would experience some of the many things of which he spoke, but God always brought good things out of even the worst circumstances, and in everything His glory was magnified. Thank you all for your prayers over the past 14 years.
WE GET A PERMANENT HOME
After leasing 2 different homes in Montego Bay, God worked through a generous donor to provide a five-acre, permanent home in August of 2005. The vision of Robin's Nest seemed overwhelming when we moved up the hill to our permanent home, but the Lord has done GREAT things through our executive directors, a wonderful staff, short-term mission teams, interns, financial and prayer supporters, and the Board of Directors.
Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
May God's Will continue to be done at Robin's Nest.
