The children in Kenya are just finishing up their April school break and that means more school fees are due for their education. As I have told you before, paying for better education is not a luxury in Kenya, it is a necessity. Our orphans would not have access to quality education if you and I don't help them obtain it. That means money. Here is the latest update from Pastor Francis on little Mary:
Mary started her April vacations yesterday making the end of first term 2015. Their school will reopen on 5th May 2015 so they are expected to report back to school on 4th of May. I will scan and send her papers next week and her photos.
Her academic performance is excellent and she has improved so much in school work. I had some photos of her enjoying swimming on their fun day and Mary is a happy girl today. Her next term school fees are Ksh 54000 or about $500 for school, text books and personal effects.
I thank God for you and for everything.
I am reminded of what Jesus' brother wrote in his epistle in James 1:27: "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress." You can multiply the need Pastor Francis described by six since we are sponsoring other children from the Each One Touch One Orphanage. That means we need about $3,000 by May 1 for this next term. Will you help Mary, Phyllis, Nuru, Elizabeth, Deborah and Joseck have a fighting chance to survive to be successful, productive adults?

Thank you for your help and may God take notice and supply your needs as you help these children who have no one else to turn to but you and me. Thank you and God bless you.
