A Mountain Top Day!

The first full day on August 18 began with Bonnie, Kim and Floyd getting to see a beautiful sunrise over Mt. Kenya as they awoke in Bernard and Mary Kabaru's home.

We had an awesome time celebrating with Pastor Stephen and his wife, Ann, and their children, Peace, Favour and Patience. We were joined by Bernard, Robert and John.

We visited four OVC families (Orphan and Vulnerable Children) in Bellavue, Kenya. The first family was grandparents who have raised eight grandchildren, now with two teenagers. They have a kitchen garden, goats and chickens through the help of Life Empowerment for Transformation (LEFTI), and the guidance of Robert and Bernard.

The second family was a single father raising his three children. The third family was a grandmother who has a granddaughter in college. The grandmother has kitchen garden that now produces enough for her to sell some produce, chickens and a goat. She is an amazing woman who has stolen our hearts.

The fourth family was an aunt who is taking care of a niece with disabilities and a nephew. LEFTI has helped with physical therapy, care, a special diet and other physical needs.

All of these visits were a mountain-top experience for the heart and mind. We praise God for His blessings and for the support provided to sustain the OVC and LEFTI programs.
