As God provides, we are buying the materials needed to pour the cement floor for the first story of our school building. Because it will be a heavy load of concrete poured above the ground floor, the forms have to be strongly supported and braced before any concrete work can be done. As the building work progresses, I will be posting photos of the work.
As you can see, there is also more brickwork needed on the ground floor. It is always step-by-step, but we praise God that we can again continue with this project. This school will be an important addition to our work in Kisii. We intend this ministry not only for the benefit of our own children, but also for other children of the area who at this time are not able to attend any school.
Of course as this project continues, the daily needs of the children do not stop. We are also praising God that we were also able to send money for food and for the schools where the children now attend.The school costs for this term are the most ever, but we have gradually been paying it as we go along. We now have a school balance for all three schools of 400,000 Kenya Shillings, or $3,200 (current exchange 1 shilling = about 0.008 dollars).
After buying the food this week, theycurrently have food until about next Monday, but just today they also received another bank transfer from us. Pastor Joel will send a report on that next week.

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!
