We are thankful that we were able to make a bank to bank wire transfer of $4000 to the orphanage this week. Below is the letter I received from Pastor Joel:
Dear Beloved Dad, Mum, Church and Friends,
Greetings from Kenya family, we pray for you daily, we are humbled that help that was sent was received and now the children have food to eat. May God bless all the hand that has given the help for the children.
The children have stayed without food for 9 days because other days within starving time some members were able to send food and bananas to cook for the children. We thank all the members of the Kenya church who sent help. God bless you all.
We remained trusting for the Lord when we have and when we don't have food. We have set the mind of children that God remain to be in control in season and out of season.
The church has been given time to meet publicly on one hour time service with limited number of people. No aged members and those less 13 years not allowed. We as the churches in Kenya we have agreed not to meet till our fully freedom of worship, but we are meeting in house service and also meeting with children in the orphanage compound praising God.
Be assured that the church will keep the mission shining keep us in prayer. We request your prayers for the Log orphanage Kenya and also the churches here as we go through challenges ministering the gospel in Kenya.
