One of the projects that we are working on in the vocational school
for the orphanage in Kenya is husbandry for cattle. We presently have 4 cows, one of which just gave birth to a bull calf.

Cows in Africa always look so malnourished to me, and I suppose that they are. 

But my comparison is not fair, since I invariably compare all cows that I see to my Scottish Highland herd. Even here in the US, when I see a prize herd of Holstein cattle, they look so skinny. It looks to me like someone should feed those poor animals.

There is no pastureland for our cows at the vocational school at the orphanage, so food is scarce. Some food is purchased for them, but mostly someone daily needs to lead them out to graze on the greenery that grows on the edge of the roadways, and wherever
else there might be a blade of grass.

Milk production is one of the goals of this project. We will have to see how much milk these cows can actually produce, but there should at least be enough to put in their tea.

But it is also a learning experience, and I am excited to see how this work progresses.


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.

Send it to:

 The Log Church

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!
