A couple of days ago I posted on this blog the news that we are entering into what we hope is a new phase in making the orphanage more self-reliant. The first part of this plan is to develop a garden area where the children can work at growing their own food.

The plot of ground that we have to work with for our garden is not large (200 ft X 80 ft), but it is a beginning. Eventually, we plan on growing garden plants using either hydroponics or aquaponics, but that is still down the road. The first thing is simply get a garden established.

However, even before we do that, we need a

water system. That is what is presently being constructed. I have communicated much with Pastor Joel and the leadership on how we should go about doing it. Of course we cannot do everything at once, but only as the Lord supplies what is needed.

But we have a very good beginning. We are thankful for the money that has been contributed by you, our readers, in donating enough to buy the large 10,000 liter tank, besides all of the material to collect the water from the roofs. During the dry times of the

year, the tank is close enough to the road that it can be reached by a water delivery truck using a long hose. The cost of a tank of water is about $70 when delivered in this way, so we will first use what falls from heaven.

I have again included the diagram of the preliminary plans for the water system, so you may refer to it in order to understand what the set-up is to be.

Also, please see below several photos of the

grounds and the buildings. I hope these pictures will help you better visualize what the orphanage is like there.

Thanks for praying for all of these needs. We continue to look for and patiently wait for the Lord’s provision.


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!
