12 Days of Blessing!

Since our last post in February, the Lord has opened the windows of heaven and poured out a blessing!
On March 30th. the need was very great in Migori. The drought had taken a serious toll on the water and food supply.
 People and animals alike were dying and there was no means of correcting the mounting problems.

 There was nothing to plant for a much needed crop that could be harvested by June. The rains were forecast to return in just days. They were down to the wire to get something in the ground.

 They had no bulls to help with plowing, no seed to plant, no fertilizers (all animals died so they had no manure), no medicine to treat water borne illnesses, no clean water, no food to keep workers nourished while hand digging, and all seemed hopeless.

But Then God Answered Prayer!

 We put out a plea for help...many answered the need with donations. One donor even pledged to match donations! ,,,,,,,,   $10,000.00 came in over the next 12 days! A miracle!

Boniface ordered two bulls right away from the border of Uganda, to be used to plow the ground.

He rode the 6 hr. trip back with the bulls in the truck to insure a safe delivery.
He ordered needed seeds, fertilizers, army worm spray, and much needed medicines.

Upon his return they found that the old plow his dad owned for many years was worn out and was unable to  dig deep enough behind the bulls.
 Boniface was able to purchase another one at a market.




Pictured below are the new crops coming in!








They were also able to put in two hand dug wells ! One at his dad's village and another one ten miles from that one. Now many will have access to safe clean water!





Looking forward to a beautiful harvest in June!
Isn't The Lord Good?

Boniface says "It's the worst he's ever seen."


Almost one third of Kenya has not seen rain for seven months! It has affected all crops and livestock. Water supplies are depleted and food is very scarce. They have had to ration water in many areas including Migori.  The situation is even worse in his dad's village of Osinga where even the contaminated water is scarce. Cholera has broken out and many are sick and dying. Boniface carries water in a container every morning by motor bike to his dad's to sustain them and the home of the elderly. Things are very difficult for the ministry at this trying time.  Yesterday Feb. 14, 2017 they were able to treat 3 elderly with cholera and save them, but this morning 2 of the villagers were not able to be helped and succumbed to their illness.
Boniface is desperately asking for your help. Any amount given will help with food, water, and medicine.

Home For the Elderly


Ministering to the elderly.

Pastor Boniface's mom and dad, Hellen and Silvanus,
 have become the overseers and ministers of the widows home.
The elderly are being cared for and many are coming to Christ!
They are doing a great work for the Lord. Look at those smiles. Truly blessed!




A home for the elderly located in Osinga Village (5 miles from Migori).
We have recently sealed the building with concrete to keep out mosquitoes and leeches. The insects were biting the elderly and bringing with them many illnesses. Praise the Lord for this very important improvement!






Widow's receiving new blankets!

A fundraiser held  August 2016 by the Bible School kids at the
 Hope Community Christian Church in New Philadelphia, Ohio U.S.A.
Pastors Scott & Staci Snyder, supplied enough funds to give blankets to the elderly.
The days there are warm, but it gets very damp and cool at night. What a comfort for them.

Her two sons also passed away. next to her is Grace, then Marry Junior, Boniface, Paul, (the county social worker), Boniface's mother, Hellen, Josephina, Hellen's neighbor, Peres 65 yrs. old.

They have nicknamed her "achieng" which means morning sun.

Upon presentation of the new blankets, Boniface found he had one extra. They presented it to Josephina, who was so overwhelmed, she brought her old one to church on the following Sunday. Her old blanket was over 10 yrs old, tattered and worn. Excited about receiving her new one, she held  up the old one and testified, "this is how missionaries used to be, they really cared about you." Since then she has been inviting neighbors and relatives to church, and has inspired many to attend services!

Boniface has visited some relatives of Josephina's who live across the small river from Osinga. He met 80 year old John who is blind, and 91 year old Joash. They were among the first converts to Christ over 40 years ago, when Pentecostal preachers came from New York. Boniface brought them medicine and treated their sickness and sores. They also asked for blankets . If you would like to help with their request, go to the donate page and put a note in the donate comment box for this need.

Boniface and other guest ministers, held a town conference pictured above. Preaching and teaching the Word of God. 120 confessed Christ after the week long meetings. Glory to the Lord for His mercy!

Orphanage Progress

Orphanage updates.


Many improvements on the orphanage have been completed in 2015.
Boniface and his family are now living with 26 orphans thanks to God's provision and the generosity of many supporters. Thank you everyone, and please keep this ministry in your prayers!

Items completed in 2015:
1. Existing well cleaned and covered.
2. Pump and water storage tank installed.
3. Electric installed.
4. New beds for 26 orphans.
5. Temporary certificate granted for operation by the government.

They are currently working on the three needed bathrooms, kitchen plumbing, and painting. Upon completion of these, they will be issued a permanent certificate which allows for the rest of the orphans to be housed there. God is good and making the way!











Painting is continuing. Looking very good!
