I am still believing for $10,000 to come in for THE BIG GOAL I set in December for my work in Kenya. This past week $700 came in and God is moving on many people to support the widows and orphans, for which I am grateful. Here is the latest update that came from Pastor Francis and his administrator who work at the Upako Centre in Nairobi that cares for 37 orphans, all in Pastor Francis' home! Here is what they wrote with some pictures (they also sent an accounting for the money we gave them in December):
Rev. Dr. John,
I am very grateful to you and to your wife for having taken your time and resources to do ministry to us here in Kenya last December. Even though we did not have a lot of time to share, your presence has been deeply felt and the money you brought speaks a lot. The children are in good health and we are praying for continued support especially to feed the orphans as they continue with their education. May God’s goodness follow you all the days of your life.Find attached some photos during Christmas and after the New Year when we opened school.
Above is our financial report on how we spent the money we received from Rev.Dr.John during his visit to Kenya in December 2010 (Ksh.75,000.).The money helped a great deal especially during the Christmas festivals and in the New Year.We wish you all the best and want to thank all of you who denied themselves and even sacrificed to see to it that orphans were not left behind when the world celebrated the Christmas and the new year. Thank you for becoming a brother and a sister to the least in society, your donation was used to buy food for the orphans and we say a big thank you on behalf of the children. Had it not been for your sincere donations, life could have lost meaning for this needy community but thank God for you for you responded when called upon in a timely way.
