Our Race

Our Race

As I look at the picture above I rejoice in the family God has given me. My precious family, the treasure that God has placed in my hands to guide and disciple. Please keep them in your prayers as they grow. Tanya in now 16 and starting to think about college. She has many choices to make in the next year or two. We are hoping to get her started with classes over the internet and at least let her get some basics finished. Christy is 13 and loves life. She has a servants heart and can be counted on to help whether it is with cookies or cleaning. Josh (9) is starting his personal race. He loves action, mechanics, building, and good stories. Pray that we can guide him into meaningful service for the Lord and that we can help all of them grow in the Lord.

Sekenani Village Well

This last month I heard that the ladies where having trouble with the village water pump. We ordered new seals and had them delivered on one of the planes that comes with the tourists. Unfortunately this was not the only problem. The kids had been playing at the well and had broken the pump handle and pushed trash down the hole. This had distroyed both the seals and the foot valve. A quick trip to Nairobi and we had a new foot valve to go with the seals. Tanya and I went down as the rain was building and very quickly pulled the well. :( (Tanya now knows why we use the term of "pulling" a well.) Even before we were through the women of the local village were starting to arrive to get water. Best of all, the rain held off until we got home.

David Lesaloi

Please continue to pray for David Lesaloi. He is the man in our church that is fighting with depression. We helped him get on medication that can help him. The problem is that he doesn't want to take his medicine. We let him go in for his injection by himself on the first of the month, but we didn't see the normal results of the medicine at work. This last Friday his wife called and asked for help as he was slipping into the depression again.  We are now wondering if he paid the doctor to not give him his medication. Please keep us in your prayers for wisdom.

His wife and mother are both in good spirits and Moses, the three month old premee baby is growing quickly. PTL They are both still with us in trying the medicine and are very supportive of the process. Pray for them as well as this is not easy on any of them.
