As you can see by the photos below, construction on our school at the Log Church and Orphanage Kenya is continuing to move along. It was very good that we could pick this up again before the more rainy season begins.

Below is the letter from Pastor Joel. In it he gives the full accounting of the most recent bank transfer that they received. As always, to see the receipts for items purchased, click the “Read More” button at the very bottom of the post.

I have a couple of other news items to tell you about. The first is that Vivian and I, along with a man from our Log Church Tripoli will be making a two week trip to visit the children and all of the people at the orphanage and two churches in Kenya. This will happen about the middle of March.

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!
