As you know, I am trusting the Lord for $12,000 to ship our next container over to Kenya. I am praying that God will open my eyes to the provision that is probably right in front of me but I can't see it. This past week, I received an email from Alice, describing how two orphans are benefiting from music lessons provided by one of our teams. While this keyboard was not in our last shipment, many other musical instruments were, and they are being put to good use by children all around Nairobi. Here is what Alice wrote:
Dear Susan and John,
It is with a lot of appreciation that l attach these photos of Obed and Joy as they get down to business on the keyboard - courtesy of your kind donation. There was a balance of Kshs 5,000.00 which l used to pay for a professional trainer to coach them. It managed to fund 4 introductory classes on the key board and only one class on the Recorders. The sessions were lasting 1hr and 45 minutes. Obed is catching up well and is very interested. Joy is very interested and is behind Obed but l think she will catch up.
They have such a tight program in school but the music teacher advised a quick follow up with further training so that they can have all the teaching they require before they can be set to gain experience on the keyboard. If money was available, this would be perfect.
I will find out from him how many other classes they require before they are left to pick up the rest by practice from the Key Board. Then l can share the costing with you just in case. Thanks a lot once more. I am looking for time and cash so that l can take the same training in October, probably l could be of more help to the two and the rest of he kids. Obed and Joy will write over the weekend to tell you about their experiences.
May God bless you - Alice
I need your help if the children are to receive the wonderful resources that have been donated but sit in our warehouse, which is also costing us money to maintain. Please pray and then consider a generous gift toward the container expenses. You can give using PayPal or by sending a check to PurposeQuest, PO Box 8882, Pittsburgh, PA 15221-0882. If you have any ideas of how this container money can be raised, I am all ears, believe me. Please write and let me know your thoughts. Thank you and thank You, Lord, for your provision that is already on its way.
