Trip 33 to Kenya and Trip 34 to Uganda

God willing this Wednesday, 19 January a team of 4 leave for a 11 day trip to Kitale, Kenya to visit the Lord’s Servants Childrens Home and School supported by MSM. They have repair projects, furniture building, older children to visit, and Bible training planned.

On January 26, a team of 5 including me will leave for a 16 day trip to Bwase, Uganda to visit the Child Redeemed Mission Children’s Home and 2 Schools that MSM supports. We have many repair projects, school desk building, evangelism training, children projects, and planning for the future to accomplish. We are excited to meet 10 new children that have recently joined the CRM Home.

Please pray for all of us to remain Covid free and otherwise healthy so we can serve as we hope, that all the crazy logistics in these Covid-times happen smoothly, our families to remain safe, and for Christ to be glorified in all we do.

Let the packing begin…..updates will come. Thank you for your prayers and support.

New Kitchen for Promise Primary School

Before COVID19, Promise Primary was growing rapidly, filling all nursery and primary classes with over 300 students and expecting nearly 50 boarding students for the higher grades.  The original kitchen where morning porridge, lunch, and teachers food consisted of a simple sheet metal shelter and a pot suspended on 3 rocks over a fire.  The food and grain stores were in rooms in the office.  Rainy and windy weather was a real challenge.  Bless the cooking staff for keeping up under those conditions.  The pandemic shut down allowed time for a solution however.

Besides necessity, upgrading the kitchen was a pending requirement of the school registration process.  Therefore, a 15′ by 30′, 4 room building was built which features a large well ventilated and lit cooking area, a food pantry, a room for maize and bean bulk storage, a cooks residence room, and 45′ of covered veranda for kids and firewood to stay out of the rain.  Three large wood burning efficient cooking stoves were installed.  The cooking staff will be ready when school is allowed to open.

Here is the old kitchen….

This project was completed for under $10,000.  School Director Noah put in a lot of hands on work and management to insure cost efficiency.  Thank you all for your prayers and support.
