The internet has been down in Kisii a lot in the past days (even in the past weeks). Joel travels into Kisii town, which is about a 45 minute to hour trip, half by walking and half by local transport, and when he arrives at the cyber-café, he often finds the internet not working.

But finally today he was able to get a letter off to me along with the receipts from the last bank transfer. As most times, we have divided the money in between food and school. However, this time in addition to that, we have also put aside $500 to go toward the next phase of the school building.

That phase is the pouring of the concrete floor on the second level. We received a quotation of $18,000 for this part, and since we have never had that much money in the fund, we decided to put a little away at the bank account for the orphanage in Kenya until we are able to pay for this to be done. It is a small beginning, but that has been the case with all that has been done in the orphanage.

We feel like Zerubbabel of days of old: “The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house, and his hands will complete it… For who has despised the day of small things? But these seven eyes of the LORD, which scan the whole earth, will rejoice when they see the plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel.”

This year neither is the school giving us any breaks with the payments needed. This year there is not one month holiday between the terms, but the kids only get a few days off before returning again to classes. This is for the entire year. There is not summer vacation as in the US. The school systems are trying to make up for so much lost weeks during the previous school year because of covid.

Please see Joel’s letter below:

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!
