$6,000 of the $8,500 is still needed to drill a well and build a water tower/restrooms for school children.
The present water supply is from a stream, hand carried down the mountain. The government has given the school a deadline to make this improvement.
2018 Summer Conference PRAISE--GOD MET THIS NEED THROUGH YOUR GIVING
Kenya’s dominant religious faith is Christianity. The church there is strong on evangelism,
but the need is great for skilled, biblically trained pastors and leaders. Beginning in 2015, we’ve conducted two
summer conferences in Kakamega and Webuye, close to the Uganda border, with several smaller seminars in
between, helping Sammy Nyaranga and Zacharia Olala in their mission to train quality Christian leadership.
Conferences this summer, May 24-June 12 will focus on Marriage and Family.
$17,500 needed for 17 days of ministry includes:
Meals for over 1000 pastors/leaders/attendees
** Actual meals served-2850 not counting children. Expenses increased from $17,500 to $23,500
Bridge-Hope Academy is pre-school-2nd grade, just outside Kakamega, staffed with volunteer teachers. They are daily meeting the desperate education needs for smaller children who aren’t big enough yet to walk to the government schools. Truth Encounter, through your giving, has already provided for two buildings, but there is a growing need for two more buildings to provide for the growing student body. Electricity and running water are other needs listed below.
Feeding 120 children (Year) $9,792.00
Two new classrooms $18,000.00
Installing electricity $1,000.00
Teacher Education Fund
Help equip two Kenyan teachers to serving in Hope Bridge Academy Kagamega, Kenya
During my 2016 Summer Kenya trip, some of my most special moments involved circles. The circle, however, that moved me the most was getting to sit with a group of Webuye widows holding their babies and young children. Many are young, losing their husbands to accidents at work or AIDS, and desperately need to support their families. The widows would like to start their own business: washing and fixing hair. They need training, hair dryers, curling irons, shampoo, oil, and a place for their business. It will take about $850 dollars per widow to get them going. (3 widows are now in training)
A dairy cow will not only provide milk for a pastor's family, but enough for them to sell the milk in their area, and share Christ with those who come for the fresh milk. $1,000.00 will buy a milk cow and help build a shelter.
