Our time in Kenya - we had God with us the entire time in the work of Bread, and even when it was hard to be in certain places, he was still by our side and made it known to us in so many ways. We want to say thanks to him and give him all the glory for what he's accomplished through Bread during this trip. We spent the first week being part of an evangelical mission to the Tharaka people in their homes (hut to hut). Praise God that 89 people gave their lives to Christ during this time. After some uncertainty over when/if the bibles would successfully arrive on time from the UK, we thankfully collected the 500 children's story Bibles and 200 Good News Bibles to be distributed very soon after, exciting times they were! (A big thank you to everyone who supported the purchase of these books - they were much appreciated!) What a privilege and a blessing it was to give out Bibles to the 345 children at Dandora primary school, as well as to several primary schools and churches in the Tharaka area as well.

We spent the rest of our time in Kenya back in Tharaka helping to put in several water tank bases as well as distributing more Bibles to several churches and schools in the area and helping to put the finishing touches to the small church at Maara in Tharaka, which Bread has supported the construction of.

I would like to thank you for your financial and prayerful support for our trip this year. We really felt the prayers of those at home upon us as we sought to do the Lord’s will during our short time away.
