Education: Lions, Tigers, Elephants, 48 Hours of Walking….

A long walk home.
Mbebilia is from Isiolo.  She's one of the girls we sponsor for education.  The photo above was taken during a school visit.  From the main road it took us FOUR HOURS, driving on rough terrain, to reach her school.  The road in this photo is SMOOTH, in comparison.  Mbebilia's school is a day and boarding school.  She is a boarding student, which means she lives on campus during school terms.  BUT she WALKS TWO FULL days/nights, through "the bush" to and from school, at the beginning and end of each term.  Very dangerous due to wild life…some children don't make it.  Literally walking through the "living rooms" of the King of the Jungle, tigers, elephants and more.  Ken-Ya Believe It!
This photo was taken on the way to Mbebilia's school.

We are truly grateful that our child is now in school, after beginning at the age of nine…but CHANGE IS NECESSARY!

PRAY for Mbebilia's safety.

PRAY with and for us as we seek the way forward with her education.  

PRAY about sponsoring a child.  There are so many more Mbebilias.

Ken-Ya Believe It?  IT'S TRUE.

We would like to thank you for each visit, telephone call, text message, Facebook message, etc., as we prepared to depart.  THANK YOU!  A very special THANK YOU to family and friends who came to the airport to see us off.  THANK YOU!  THANK YOU to every person who checked to make sure we arrived safely in Kenya!  THANK YOU!

We would also like to thank all of our donors, especially our monthly donors!  THANK YOU! Thank you to all of our NEW DONORS!  THANK YOU!  And for those who cared for us effortlessly and tirelessly during our time in the US!  THANK YOU!  To every person who donated supplies, including tuna, drink mix, suitcases, financial support, etc.  THANK YOU!

We are still adjusting to being back home!  We have been resting, while finalizing plans for the arrival of The Park Church, USA Women's Mission Team.  They will arrive in five short days.

PRAISE BREAK! Up! Up! ….and Away!!!!!

We have been blessed beyond our wildest imaginations…and we are only speaking of the last twenty - four hours!  We've waited, prayed and cried, while anticipating timely provision from our Heavenly Father.  Any my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.  Phil. 4:19

With that said, we are heading back to Kenya next week.  Up!  Up!  …and Awaaaaaay!  Homeward bound!  Thank you, Father!  PRAISE BREAK!

Here's a glimpse into the last twenty - four hours.

Now faith is the confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.  Heb. 11:1

We couldn't SEE the funds but we booked flights any-how!  We booked our airline tickets "in faith"!  Yep!  IN FAITH!  We knew it was time to go so we acted like it!  Tickets please.  So the airline tickets were on hold….for several days.  The days passed and STILL no money.  More prayer please!  Yesterday, we asked individuals to pray specifically for our financial needs (more about those powerhouses later).  We would loose our reservations if they were not paid for by the end of business, Thurs., July 24th. But God!  This morning we received a call from a"new" donor that the money for one of the tickets had been mailed to The Mission Society (TMS). PRAISE BREAK! 
Please don't focus on the donation for ONE ticket.  Do you remember our "anonymous" $10,000 Matching Grant, via TMS?  Ok.  Since the donation was made by a "new donor" the money they submitted DOUBLED, which gave us the funds for the second ticket!!!!!!  Another PRAISE BREAK!   And, the same person became a new monthly donor! Yaaaaaaaassssss!  PRAISE BREAK!  But that's not all…..

Airline Tickets - CHECK!

Pray continually.  1 Thes. 5:17

Photo by Ken-Ya Believe It!
Earlier, we mentioned asking individuals to pray specifically for our financial needs.  We were seeking twelve (12) new donors at $50 each per month, for eighteen (18) months, to meet our monthly goal. The sooner, the better!  So we asked individuals who KNOW how to get a prayer through…..a direct line to glory. In addition to praying for us, TWO of the prayer warriors also became new monthly donors.  And one more monthly donor was added during an evening meeting!  Boom!  Allow us to do the math…..twelve minus four equals eight.  We now need a minimum of eight new monthly donors at $50 each.  Yes!  Yes!  Yes!  (Crescendo please…say it louder each time).  PRAISE BREAK!  But that's not all…

New Monthly Donors - CHECK!  Thank You!

Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall.  Ps. 55:22

In most cases we wouldn't celebrate excess baggage but this time is an exception.  One of our requests from the previous Blog was money for excess baggage, two pieces to be exact. No monie,  no checkie, your excess baggie.  LOL!  Today, an individual donated enough money to pay for one extra piece of luggage. Amen! PRAISE BREAK!  But that's not all…

Excess Bag (1) - CHECK!  Thank You!

For I testify that they gave as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability.  Entirely on their own…  2 Cor. 8:3

Previously, we requested the following items, in preparation for our return to Kenya. Thank you! Thank you!  Thank you! Today, we picked up bags of supplies from several donors.  Others donated resources for us to purchase personal items.Tomorrow we will retrieve more items. PRAISE BREAK!

Donations - CHECK!  Thank You!

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  Phil. 4:6
