I think that I mentioned two or three posts ago that the Kenyan Ministry of Children’s Welfare has now required us to move the boys from the dormitory on the orphanage into a separate building from the girls. This decision came unexpectedly, but we are thankful for two crucial answers to prayer:
This week we also made further payments of the school fees for this term, as well as buy food. The orphanage was out of food at the time, so we are thankful that the children and staff again can take nourishment.
With these added costs, the school building that we are constructing has been put on hold for now. But as always, we move ahead as God provides.
Below please read Pastor Joel’s letter

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!
