I received the following update from Pastor Francis, but no pictures this time. It sounds like things are settling down and the children are doing better.
God has taken care of us in a wonderful way through you and friends and the children are amazing. It is such a fulfilling experience to have connected with you in ministry, something that has given direction to my purpose to serve and live for God.
We had a very good week with the children and we are off to church this morning in one of the classrooms looking up with praises and thankfulness to God, for He did not allow us to perish when we got crushed.
We shall be going for a prayer /educational trip with the children on August 3rd at Mirema Centre along Thika Road in Nairobi, and it is going to be an exciting moment during this very first trip of this kind. We are going to share our experience and reflection .
It is giving me so much peace and hope when I look back to where and when you got involved with the work of feeding, educating, clothing, and helping the orphans here. May God hold your right hand as you hold us with the left.
Tell all your friends that they are blessed.
I would agree with Pastor Francis that you are truly blessed if you have helped the orphans at one time or another. In September, it will be time to help the children with their school fees and next week I will begin our push to raise the money needed for our next shipment. The needs are great, but our God is greater, and He will supply all our needs for the children and widows. You can contribute to the children using Paypal on my website, or by sending a tax-deductible check to PurposeQuest, PO Box 8882, Pittsburgh, PA 15221-0882. Thank you and remember what Pastor Francis said: You are blessed!
