A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that we felt the time was right to begin to resume construction of the school building. That is now beginning. The builder ordered the materials to so that they can begin.

The first step is to put up the forms to pour the floor for the second story, at least, for what we in America call the second story. In Kenya (and actually in most countries), it is called the first floor. The floor on ground level is called the “ground floor,” the floor above is called the “first story,” and so on.

So clearing that up, this will be a three-level building—ground level, and first and second stories. Every floor will be concrete. The ground level was already poured more than a year ago, waiting for funds to continue.

We are now ready to put up the forms to pour the first floor. Concrete is very heavy of course, so to pour a suspended floor/ceiling
requires a lot of braces. There is the wooden
sheets or boards on which to pour the concrete, but these have to be solidly supported from below. If you look on the receipt below, that is what the 500 props are for.

They are getting ready now to set up the forms for the concrete pour. The concrete will also be heavily imbedded with rebar. There is much to get ready before the concrete can be placed, but we are on the way!

We appreciate all of your prayers for this project. We will proceed as the Lord provides funding.

But the kids are back in school, and the food and other living expenses continue. Our faith is always in the Lord for what he will do. As we look back at all that God has done since we began the orphanage, it gives us faith to continue and to press on.


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.

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!
