We met with Bishop Oyugi and his wife Prisca, Faith (coordinator of the Juja grandmothers food program) and Rosemary (founder of Diversified Leaders) to chat the way forward….big plans! May God grant us all wisdom on moving forward according to His will and purpose…to You be the glory!
It’s been a short stay this time in Kenya but much has happened. The past few days we’ve filled it with not only working with our outreaches but also visiting friends and making plans…praying they are God’s will!
We’ve been out of power regularly the last few days (I’m currently working on generator power) and praying we get full power before we head to the airport so I can take a proper shower…but that is the least of what’s happening and I’m certainly grateful for the generator and the ability to heat water for bucket bathing if need be.
What we are currently dealing with is finding a permanent solution for one of our girls. If she returns to her home village during school holiday they have already said they will perform female genital mutilation (FGM). We are looking for a better place for one of our boys to live. He’s been passed around from house to house but even with that uncertainty he is doing well in school. Figuring out fund distribution for HIV/AIDS patients, paying rent for child head of household’s, chatting the way forward for a church to be established on C4KK grounds, feeding grandmothers and street boys and submitting paperwork to the government. Those things will not end once we get on the airplane so your assistance continues to be needed. Please keep us in prayer for safe travels and prayerfully consider partnering with us in this ministry.
But as I mentioned, we’ve also been visiting friends….
In all honesty we are able to talk with our friends and explain to them we’ll be back (God willing), but to Bear and Pixie it isn’t that easy. We are certainly going to miss them and are praying for a way, in the future, to bring them back with us to the States. Your prayers for peace where they are concerned are appreciated.
Ok, I’ll even miss having Bear’s bottom on my pillow!
He’s such a regal looking dog and so confident.
Again, thank you for your prayers and if you know of someone or group who would like to hear about Saved By God’s Grace, please feel free to contact us. We’ll be in the States and ready to see where God will lead this ministry! See you on the other side of the globe!
