In about three weeks Vivian and I, along with one guy from our church (Larry), will be leaving for a two week trip to see the people and the work in Kenya. We all are excited to go and see everyone, but I think Vivian is especially excited. She has been preparing little things to give to the kids and even also to the people of the churches.

We will be visiting both Log Churches—one in the village of Matagaro, and the other in Nyakembene. I have never before had the opportunity to visit Nyakembene, since it was just getting going when I was there last. In the two churches together there are almost a thousand people.

And of course we hope to spend as much time with the children as possible. They are still in their school term, but we have some teaching and also activity times planned in the schedule.

I also want to see how our school building is progressing. As you can see by the photos, the bricks have all been laid for the ground floor and they are now putting up the
bracing and forms to pour the floor for the first level. I do not think that they will have enough money yet to pour the concrete itself, but I guess we will see how it is going once we get there.

As I did before, I hope to be blogging every day during this trip, but just yesterday I ran into some malfunctions with my laptop, so we will also see how that will go. I have a couple of options that I think will work.

Thanks for your prayers!

Send it to:

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!
