Joseph, the church member on the ground in Naisuite has informed us through Daniel that the family house constructed for Kelvin and his mother with wonderful help from the neighbours contains two rooms, a single bedroom and a sitting room. They have also been blessed with an electricity supply. However, they are still in need of a latrine and a small shopping bag of food so that they can start using the house and begin a new life.
The church in Naisuite is very grateful to all those who have helped Kelvin and the other poor victims of the recent violence with their prayers and gifts. It prays that the Lord will really bless the givers. The love of God is clearly in operation both in Kenya and in the church in UK which includes our own church in Woodingdean. It is making such a difference to the lives of Kenyans in the state of Nakuru.
Also fourteen patients who received wounds from arrows have returned from hospital, a two hour journey on terrible roads. Daniel has paid £50 for their transport and the hospital has waived their fees. The cost of their ongoing medicines is £60.
Kelvin, the boy who previously had his leg amputated, is doing well and his hut is under construction but unfortunately no one has accounted for the cost of a door and a window. This will require an additional £50. Daniel says that he is in need of raising £110. Quite often we have to tell Daniel that we do not have any money for him but recently we received two gifts for Kenya from church members and unusually Malcolm did not send them off immediately. He was unsure about where the need for the money would be. The amount that he had been given for Kenya was £110!
The money has now been sent and the medicines can be purchased along with a door and a window for Kelvin’s home. Malcolm has asked Daniel to be sure to pass on our love and support and not just our money to the people of Naisuite.
God’s church is making a difference. A small gift from us can make a massive difference to others’ lives. If we respond to God’s call on our lives positively his kingdom grows.
Use of our gifts:- The money has gone towards building materials for new accommodation for Kelvin who lost a leg in the recent fighting in Naisuite and for his mum. The hut is under construction at the moment. The funds have also provided medicines, blankets, cooking equipment and all the necessities they need to live on.
Present situation in Naisuite:- Sadly fighting has broken out again leading to one further person’s death and several others being injured and hospitalised. These are not members of the church that Daniel oversees there. Joseph, who is from the church, is seen as a respected member of the general community and is playing a role in helping these new victims.
Malcolm brings another meditation for us to relax and focus on God during these difficult times. Prepare your heart to receive from Him – may you know His peace, His joy and more importantly, His love.
