As 2011 draws to a close, I am highlighting different portions of this ministry through short messages sent on the five Fridays in December…though I’m late with this one. In the first message I discussed the teaching and encouragement aspect of the email devotions which go out to over 39,000 individuals, and last week I introduced you to an orphanage in western Kenya which is currently ministering to twenty-two orphans from the local area. In this message I want to show you a school, also in western Kenya, which we have been able to assist.
On my first visit to Kenya in 2004 I stayed with the Lumbasi family and was greatly blessed by their hospitality. In the Kenyan culture, as in many non-western cultures, hospitality is not defined by something you do; rather, it is truly an integral part of your whole identity. I have maintained my relationship with this family through email as well as visits on each of my mission trips. Three years ago, Mr. Lumbasi, who spent many years as a teacher and administrator in the Kenyan school system, started his own small school focusing on high quality Christian education.
This year we were able to fund the building of a small classroom: the metal building in the background of the picture above. It may not seem like much, but the school is making excellent use of their facilities and seeking to minister to as many children as possible.
Thanks so much for your help with this and other several other projects!
Have a Christ Centered Day!
