The chickens are finally laying eggs in Kenya and here are two emails with some pictures I received from Alice last Saturday.
1. Dear Dr. Stanko,
We glad that the Lord has kept us well and happy to date. We have faith in him and pray that he continues to give us good health.
Today was spent at the Chicken Coop Project to pick our first batch of eggs.
But first, we enjoyed the sight of seemingly healthy layers and wish to thank God for how far we have come and all those friends that have been praying with us and continue to pray with us.
Attached is a photo of a section of the layers.
A thank you to all our partners and friends.
2. Dear Dr. Stanko,
Since the first recorded egg on the 12th of May 2011, we have up to now counted 287 eggs, three of which were broken (pecked by the hens and the rest been put up for sale). We shall sell to the children forty eggs per week so they can each eat 2 eggs per week.
We, at my house, have bought one tray already and we hope to sell the rest at retail price if we have to realise some profit out of them.
Thanks a lot for traveling the journey along with us.

I am returning to Kenya on July 28. Please help me replicate this project with other orphans. First, you can give to The Sophia Fund to help feed orphans and widows. Or you can also give to Operation Chicken Coop, to help build self-sustaining projects that will feed or provide revenue for those in need. Give through my website or send a check to PurposeQuest, PO Box 8882, Pittsburgh, PA 15221-0882. Thank you for helping the orphans!
