Orphanages of Kenya is now baking delicious homemade bread!

What memories does the whiff of fresh baked bread evoke in you? Happy thoughts of childhood; a familiar, wholesome, amazing taste; crusty on the outside and fluffy on the inside? A new Charcoal Bread Oven was recently bought for the Orphanages of Kenya from donations and now our orphans will also be able to share in those memories! The local …

Two new Solar Systems Donated!

It’s easy to take our electrical lighting for granted. Can you imagine arriving home from school after dark, to a home with no electricity! The children then eat dinner and settle down to finish out the evening with chores and homework in the dark. Without light in the evening, the children’s learning and exam scores suffer. According to the World …

2016 Balloons Over Bend Fundraiser

We were so very grateful for everyone’s hard work and efforts these last several days leading to last nights event (July 22, 2016).

Winter 2016 Newsletter

Last year this time we had just arrived to see 16 children and the staff, during their holiday break, occupying the land.

Think about how your …

Christmas in October

Good news was received early this morning as my phone alerted me that a text had come in from The Promise Land. Well drilling equipment rolled onto the property and was setting up to begin boring for water. I wish I were there at this very moment to witness the sight. We have struggled for several years to bore a …

First, we have exceeded our goal to travel to Kenya in November with $20,000 for the development of a well and related construction.

Walk for Water | Event

More and more these days, the answer to the question “How are you?” is quickly answered with one word: “Busy”. It seems that our lives have gone into hyper-speed as we push ourselves to the limit, making the most of the time that we’re awake. There’s nothing wrong with running full speed ahead, but even the fastest runners need rest. Additionally, …

Orphanage Update 7/22/15

The renovation of our simple kitchen (cooking over a well vented, open fire) included the installation of two commercial wood fired cook stoves which will make life much easier for our cook!  Previously, hours were spent each day keeping a fire going and under sometimes very smokey circumstances. Not to mention sweat occasionally dripping into the open pot!  Also, the food …
