Special Needs Food Crisis
Bishop Zach from Kakemega, Kenya, says that drought and a locust plague have knocked out much of the maize needed to make ugale, the “bread” of Kenya. The 130 children in Hope Bridge Academy that we drilled a well and built three classrooms for, need food. Zach asked for $2500 to help stop the hunger till the next harvest comes in. Thank you for your heart and gifts.
Hope Bridge 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, another is being built because of your gifts for my birthday, but one more building is needed to provide for the growing student body.
One more classrooms $9,000.00
Installing electricity $1,000.00
Pray for our Kenyan pastors and their church families as food shortages in western Kenya are more serious than even the threats from the virus. If you want to help meet this food need, just $133 will feed a pastor's family for a month.. "pray with us with the closure of churches and lock down" --Sammy

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.
PRAISE--GOD MET THIS NEED THROUGH YOUR GIVING
$8,500 to drill a well and build a water tower/restrooms for school children.
