We stopped simply because we did not have the funds to continue. For a while, I asked Pastor Joel to withhold $400 or $500 from the food budget every month and place it in a special savings account until we had enough to continue to build, but the cost of food escalated to the point where we had to also use that savings so that the children could eat and go to school.
And it is as God said of Zerubbabel, who along with high priest who were among the first of the exiles to return to Jerusalem to begin the reconstruction of the temple, “Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the LORD of Hosts.”
The beginning of this phase of our school building also will depend on the power of the Lord. We begin small, but we begin. It has been that way in all of our projects at the orphanage. “For who has despised the day of small things?” (from Zechariah 4).
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!
