Ele moved the Sanctuary church with her stories and experiences with the motherless babies home that is provided by her sister and brother-in-law in Nigeria. As a founding member of a non-profit working with women in prison (Truth-be-Told) I know the commitment required, and necessity to use every gift but continually surrender to God's will and provision in the face of difficulties. Nothing could be more important than giving infants a chance to grow up surrounded by God's love through human faces and hands and care. I honor this work with all my heart.

I know Lynda Anyanwu's sister, Ele Clay and have been sincerely touched by the communication between the sisters in which they discuss the progress of each baby or child. The excitement expressed over each sign of progress by a baby can only be genuine. It would sound like they were discussing members of their own families. I am convinced of the love that they have for the children and their intentions to provide the best care possible for these babies. I have full confidence that every cent possible is spent on direct care of the children. I have never been so fond of any charitable organization before. Nan King Austin, Texas This is the first charity of which I have been personally aware that spends every penny possible to provide services to the children. I feel confident that any money I donate is used in the most beneficial way possible.

It's vicarious: witnessing the joy expressed by the sisters over the progress of a child, or the concern over the health of a new arrival. It is second hand, just as I experience the love for children and grandchildren of my friends.

I sat on the first board with Ele and several others, including my wife. We saw quickly how Lynda and Ambrose could take very little and do great things to help people. I was very fortunate to meet Lynda and Amborse and can tell you that their gentle spirit and concern for others drives them to help everyone they encounter. They live out Christ's concern for humanity in what they are doing where they live. Mark Sneed

I met Ambrose and Lynda Anyanwu a few years ago. I was excited to here about the work they were doing for the children in Eziama. I felt compelled to help in any way I could. The Anyanwus are a people of integrity and true faith. There ministry is one worth supporting.

It is very touching watching the presentation of the growth of the home, schools, hospital, etc. that our donations have helped provide to a very caring organization. It certainly is a God Thing and He is still at work for Eziama Grace. Seeing the grown young men that were the start of a great program is so exciting and rewarding. Whatever donation that is sent is of great assistance to them and their work. They are really working hard to keep EGSN going and multiple their good deeds. God Bless them all.

Knowing Ele and Charles personally helps keep the work in front of us and keep us wanting to donate whenever we can. The Sanctuary donates on a regular basis. The dolls they gave us for our donations are priceless. Sue Kingham

It was a while after I met the parents that I met Linda and Elenor face to face in Anguilla. Linda was married to an African, Mr. Anyanwu, and living in Nigeria as missionaries, while Ele had gone off to the USA. Bro. and Sis. 'B' were what their parents were affectionately called by the brethren at Central Baptist Church in Anguilla in the Caribbean. They made sure that I knew Linda and Ele as if I actually grew up with them. I got acquainted with the Anyanwu's ministry in Nigeria via Bro 'B'. Our church quickly became financial supporters to their ministries. At that time, I believe the school was started and also the motherless babies home. Linda's heart went out to babies who lost their mothers. When Linda and her husband finally came to Anguilla, the stories of survival they told us were amazing, incredible, awsome and ...!!! I can't imagine myself in her position. I do admire her for her endurance in adversity. I am encouraged to carry on in my little section of God's vinyard and the scripture "Be not weary in well doing..." comes to mind and is made very real to me. I have seen pictures,newsletters, updates, telephone calls and emails from Ele especially since I became a part of EGSN. Their ministries are growing. In addition to the babies home and the school, is the hospital. In spite of all kinds of oppositions, they refuse to 'throw in the towel'. They are of great assistance to their people and anyone connected to this great cause would not regret being a part. Lives are being saved both phisically and spiritually. I encourage all who know about EGSN to support it. In this way we are laying up 'treasures in heaven'. Keep up the good work y'all. God will bless abundantly!!!

I met Ele 30+ years ago in San Juan, PR, at Calvary Baptist Church where my deceased husband served as pastor. Ele quickly became involved in the church and our friendship has been long lasting. Because of Ele's passion and commitment to Eziama Grace Ministry, I have financially supported this wonderful ministry. The ministry gives great hope, love, guidance, opportunities and support to those they serve.

My experience with Eziama Grace Ministry has been from a distance; however, through the newsletters and a relationship with Ele I trust and support the many years of the Anyanwus' ministry. Personally, I would like to travel to Eziama Grace some day.

We met Ele and her family many years ago when we were doing some missionary dentistry for the people of Anguilla. We heard Ele sing in her father's church and you could hear a pin drop it was so beautiful. The Lord was with her that night and has continued to bless her as she works so hard for Eziama Mission. We think that this is so important for the people of that region who have very little in the way of material things. May God continue to bless this work among his creation.

As indicated above Ele lived with us for two years when she was receiving her undergraduate degree in the USA, so we know of her personal integrity.

When I first heard about Eziama Grace, my heart was moved to be involved. I was moved by Lynda and Ambrose's ministry and how they give of themselves so willingly and without thought. I was so moved that I wanted to go and see these beautiful children and help in anyway that I could. I was fortunate enough to go to Nigeria, meet Ambrose and Lynda, and be welcomed into a loving community of children and teachers. My time there was life changing and all their smiles melted my heart. This place has many needs and only with the help of others can we even begin to touch the surface of their needs. It was after my trip that I became a board member. It has been a pleasure to work with Ele and to see her passion to help as well. All people involved, the board members and Lynda and Ambrose, are people of integrity that all work towards a common goal of being used by the Lord to serve these children and adults of the Eziama community.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

During my visit there I saw how donations can help babies be cared for; how donations help provide materials for the school; how donations help former babies that are now adults needing assistance to get on their feet.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

want to see more people involved and more donations given.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

being able to go and see firsthand how our work here is making a difference.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

passionate, full of integrity, and willingly to work in whatever way was needed.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the world. Hundreds of lives would be changed and more people could be helped. The future of the world is our children.

Ways to make it better...

more people are involved and give.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the fact that it is still growing.

One thing I'd also say is that...
