Six years ago today, by the date; this website was launched. Over the years we have posted many updates, photos and news of the work. It has been the place where many announcements have been made and encouragements shared. We have added to it over the years and the appearance has changed a few times but we thank God for the doors it has opened. This website has reached into many countries across the world and connected us with so many people. If you click on the flag box at the bottom of the home page you will see the many different places which have been represented by visitors to this site. Today we say a very big thank you to each and every one of you who have shown an interest and made the work involved with the site worthwhile.
Our offices in UK and Kenya will open again this week and we are looking forward to all that God has planned for us. There is always plenty to do. As we enter a New Year, the need for Bibles is ever before our eyes and we ask you to continue to pray for this.
We are trusting that we will be able to travel to Kenya and also Uganda later in the year and think we have found flights which may be suitable....please pray for this.
The second batch of students to enrol on our email child protection course will begin studying this week. Pray for them.
We send our congratulations to those who have successfully completed our first course and received the certificates. The top achievers (and their overall marks) were:
Sammy Njoroge Nganga from Nairobi with 93%
Charity Wamuyu Muriuki from Nakuru with 93%
Rosalia Achieng Oyweka from Kisumu with 82%
Rev Alois Were Anyango from Kibera, Nairobi with 80%
We are so proud of each student who worked hard to complete their assignments and pray that the next group will also benefit. It has been great to hear how students have been encouraged with the course also...even one girl said how she intended to use her certificate to try and gain a job. We pray that she will be sucessful.
As you will see even from the names above, the students are spread across the country of Kenya. On our first course we also had students from Tanzania and one from Myanmar. We are delighted that Uganda is represented on our second course. We pray that all will be blessed.
Tomorrow I am looking forward to visiting ASDA in my home town to receive the cheque for £200.00 for Feed My Lambs. Customers have been voting for 3 charities/good causes throughout the month of December and we are delighted that we received the highest number of votes. The other two groups will receive £50.00 each. Thank you to everyone who voted.
We have a number of meetings over the coming weeks, but would also like more. Please consider having us share in your Church or fellowship.
May the Lord continue to bless you all.
