The other piece of news that I have for you is that I have written a book concerning my own calling to go to Kenya to begin this orphanage. It is an unlikely story of a guy who resisted at every point, but whom God finally compelled to go. Even if you don’t want to buy one, follow the link below to go to the purchase site where you can browse through some of its contents.

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!
