On August 1st my dad left for Africa on his yearly visit. He took $1,000 over with him that Katherine’s Mission collected to help the children of East Africa. There are always lots and lots of opportunities, but in the end, our decision came down to two choices. The Holy Cross school at Emmaus Millimani, Kenya, was near bursting, and is in need of an additional classroom. We could do that or feed all of the students and teachers for the rest of the school year (three months). Most of the kids there are underfed and are not getting as much food as they could and should be getting. So we decided to give the money to Mary Sagala, the organizer for the school, and let her decide which was the greater need.
She didn’t even hesitate. She new what the greater need was.
So starting this month, I am proud to say that we are feeding over 160 kids and teachers for about $80 a week, helping to nourish them not only in physical needs, but also in the love and admonition of the Lord.
Stay tuned for pictures of the school and children at Mois’ Bridge, they will be arriving soon.
Thank you for all your help and support in the past year. Imagine where these kids would be without all of you to help them along the way!
