An update on our progress at Gathaithi OVC – Kenya
Good day from all of us here in Kenya Eastern Africa….
We are extremely sorry that we have been so far behind in updating our website….
Today we are slowly playing catch up with many of the updates that were missed….
Thank you for your patience.
We are going to focus on Gathaithi Orphanage Nairobi Kenya. We have gotten a lot of work done besides getting all the children in school on time…
A while back we picked up 2 barbecues made of 40-gallon drums…… Now we can buy a complete goat or a 1/2 a steer and cook the entire thing and have meat for 2 weeks

Also, we have been making improvements to the kitchen we built some new work tables …. Installed new lighting… Not only to the kitchen but also the dining and study hall……
And we have built some new shelving units with steel frame…. And today we installed them….
We have much more to go with projects but this week we are going to focus on Uganda….
As you know we put up new lighting and solar power…. we built a new bathroom and washroom… We even dug out a new septic…. And we got all of the children Registered for a New Year in school on time….
Right now, we have been fundraising to get tables and chairs not just for eating…. But also, to do their school work and homework…. It is very difficult to sit on a cement floor or on the ground….
And because the beds are triple Decker bunk beds there is no room for the children to sit up in their beds to do any kind of homework even trying to eat is difficult….
Next week we will be sending tables and chairs but we really need to build a shelter dining and study hall….
This will be a very simple building with a cement floor wood frame an iron sheet walls and roof…
We will be installing a door that locks…. But most importantly right now we just need to build a shelter so we are starting to fundraise for this project $2600….
We thank you all for your prayers and support we are so grateful for everything that you have done….
We will be updating more again in the middle of next week for now please pray and consider helping with these projects….
Also, a very important issue we are having is difficulty with raising enough money each week for basic needs for these children….
Even though we have made a more comfortable and suitable living condition we struggle week after week to make sure they have enough food to eat….
So please we beg of you and urge you to pray…. But also share our website and our work with your friends, neighbors and coworkers….
Share with your Bible study groups…. And your congregations….
Thank you so much and may the Lord bless you and keep you all the days of your life…
