Thanks to you, last week our Log Church was able to make a bank transfer of $6000 to the account of the orphanage in Kenya. As you can see by the bank receipt (if you look real, real hard), the exchange rate now is exactly 1 Kenya Shilling = 1 cent US (at least that is the rate we got from the bank).

We are excited to be able to begin to work on the water collection system that for now will serve the kitchen, perhaps the dormitories, and the new garden area that we will be starting. It is our first step in preparing for the future years of the orphanage.

Of the Ksh 600,000

218,460 of those shillings were spent on food. The breakdown is below.

381, 540 were spent on supplies for the new water collection system

In a couple of days I will post about the water system purchases, along with photos.

Here is the letter from Pastor Joel:


Dear Beloved Dad, Mum, Church and friends,

Greetings in Jesus name, we thank God for the love and love, we are praying for your safe each day. We trust that God will keep you safe under his wings. Thanks for every remembrance for the family in Kenya.

We are humbled for the help you sent. We bought food and water collection items. The children are sending their thanks for helping for food. We are humbled to God for everyone who send help to Pastor Don and Vivian. Be assured that we do receive the money and kindly keep praying for us and do not stop helping despite the challenge you go through.

We know everyone is struggling. Kindly help your family in Kenya for the well-being. God bless you all for the help you are sending. The plumbing cost of items we bought + plumbing cost =Ksh.381, 540

Below is the food we bought and it will last for 9 days. Thanks.

May God bless all the hands that have helped and supported the children in
spiritually, financially and even through your prayers. We need your prayers in this time as we also pray daily for you all.

Be encouraged God is on your side. We trust God will provide for the needs for the Kenya church. God bless you all.

Yours Son Joel and Church leadership-Log Church of Kenya.


If you would like to help the children of the Log Church Orphanage of Kisii, Kenya, you may make your check out to “The Log Church” and write “Orphans” on the memo line.

Send it to:

The Log Church

PO Box 68

Tripoli Wisconsin 54564

We now need to pay a wire transfer fee with every payment, which amounts to $50 each time, but other than that, your donated money will be used only for purchasing food, clothing, schooling, and other necessities of living. We wait until we have $4000-$5000 before we make the bank transfer to make each transfer more economical. Nothing is held back or diverted for any other purpose. Thanks!
