It has been a busy, but rewarding, time at Each1Feed1, both in the United States and in Kenya. Victoria and I returned about two weeks ago from a ten day trip to Kenya with Pastor Marjie and Abby from Faith Family Church. While we were there, we had the chance to meet with the students and sweet women in the community. We held a women’s conference under our new tent donated by a local business in Kenya! We worshiped together in English and Swahili, listened to a message from Pastor Marjie, and had a raffle prize give-away while having chai (black tea, milk, and sugar boiled together). It was a great day of joy and fellowship.
Next week another team of volunteers will leave for Tharaka. During their time there, the team will be teaching art and music at Excellent Academy. They will also run a volleyball camp, host the 4th annual 5K race, provide extra help in the clinic, and continue the renovation of the clinic. God has used each of their unique gifts to create a team that is capable of doing more together than they ever could have on their own.
Maybe you are unable to go on the mission field, but you still have a heart to reach those far away. Would you consider donating toward the expenses of the summer camps? $1,000 is needed to cover the expenses for each student to participate in camp for art, music, and volleyball. That is only $4 per child!
We cannot thank you enough for your continual support and love for the people of Tharaka. You have a very important part to play in the ongoing work in Kenya. May God bless you with His favor as you partner with us.
Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. And God has placed in the church first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healing, of helping, of guidance, and of different kinds of tongues. (1 Corinthians 12:27-28)
