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.

Hey Jon
Who was helping you pull the well?

Jon and Almi,
I love the blog site. It will help us know how to better pray for you. How come you didn't think of this sooner?
All is well here.

It's so exciting to see your daughter helping in the work you do for the people in Sekenani. God bless all of you, and I pray to see you soon, when you come back for a visit. Love and prayers, Joyce Parker at EBC
