I am sorry I have not found much time to post updates on my activities in East Africa. Wanted to share that when I had said that I would be coming here to help the orphans of Mali Saba one OPOD follower insisted on helping with the project and volunteered to provide funds for the chickens. Well, got the chicken project done today. I was able to provide each child with two chickens each. This should provide about two eggs per day per child . . . one to eat and one to sell. This might sound like a small thing, but understand that one egg would be a pretty big portion of what a child needs to eat a day, so these chickens will make a big difference in keeping these kids fed. So, many thanks to our special OPOD friend.
Went with the older children to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with the surrounding villages, and had a wonderful day.
Above are some of the sights of my day. Pleased to see the wonderful chance to minister to the people in the surrounding villages. How do you take a dozen orphans out to minister in the villages you ask . . . you rent three pickies.
