School cost are increasing, and as the kids get older and enter secondary, it means it is even more costly since the secondary education requires more and additional fees to be paid.
If you do the additions of the figures below, you will see that the total cost that we need to pay for this 3-month term for all the orphan children and the children of the workers is Ksh 645,500. If you move the decimal point to make the conversion into dollars, it is $6,455.
It makes the building of our own school seem like something we should be praying about. But for now, paying the school fees is the only way for us to provide an acceptable education for them in Kenya.
But we praise God for the completed irrigation system and that the garden is planted and watered. We pray for a rich harvest to help with the food costs.
Here is Joel’s letter:
Dear Beloved Dad, Mum, Church
Greetings in Jesus name, we thank God for the provision received sent through the friends and readers of the blog post of Pastor Don and Vivian. We are humbled once again for the care you have cared for the Log orphanage Kenya.
We request your prayers for the children God to keep caring and providing for them. We thank God for your prayers. Also you are in our prayers. We are humbled for your prayers. We are seeing the lives of people here being transformed and changed more are coming to Christ who have never accepted Christ.
Thanks Pastor Donald for the spiritual food in the blog. It
is helping us and the churches in Kenya. Keep posting, may God bless you all. We
are trusting that God will send you to Kenya
to see and minister in this churches. Welcome Kenya. Thanks for your prayers.
They are spreading the fame of Jesus Christ; our prayers are with you all. Thanks for your support and prayers for the work in Kenya. We welcome your prayers. Thanks to God for the long holiday with children they are now back to school keep praying for them God to supply their needs because others their school uniforms are torn and others school shoes are won out. We are trusting God for the provision.
We know man can not be able but God is able to supply according to our richness in glory. Thanks you are doing wonderful work may God reward you and your families. On this period covid 19 the government has increased the laws like online returns which has added the cost to parents by increasing of the school fees figures, but we are trusting God will eliminate corona for this to work normal. The first payment we did for the school fees went to talents activity fees and development of children talents, this term is for sports. Thanks.

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!
