The trip for Vivian and I to visit the orphanage and churches in Kenya is still on, but I must say getting the covid test results so close to the time when we begin the flights both there and also on the return are making everything difficult. We are healthy, but it all contingent on what the results are at that time.
Vivian and latched on to this verse for our trip there: "Now may our God and Father himself and our Lord Jesus clear the way for us to come to you" (1 Thessalonians 3:11).
Here is this week's letter from Pastor Joel:

We are here to thank all who have been donating towards
school building its our prayers you keep praying for it to continue, we trust
God will provide. Thanks.
We thank God that we received government officers from the
department of construction and they recommended the work. Also, they are in
charge of children home facilities and now they gave us new instructions on how
we are supposed to separate girls from boys in different buildings. We are
humbled to report of the member has given us the room free of charge for the
stay of boys. Now we are separating boys and the current dormitory will be used
by girls only. Now the boys will occupy the room which were using that time you
came before having this dormitory.
