HARVEST TIME!

Time to cut and dry the beans.


After drying... sticks will be used to separate the beans from the plants. 


Corn maturing nicely..... 

When Boniface was a young man, his Grandfather left him 5 acres of land. near the location where he was raised.  Boniface dedicated the land to the Lord for His work. After the emergency fundraiser we had in March, the land is now called "The Darryl Rosser Farm."It was named in honor of the Rosser Family who very quickly responded in a major way to the need, after the devastating drought. The land is now being used to plant and harvest food for the elderly, orphans, and people in the  surrounding community.


Also in honor of Darryl Rosser's wife Diane, the well that was dug at the village: is now called "Diane's Well." This is the first time they have had access to clean water in their village!  Praise the Lord for provision!


Thank You!

A very special thank you to the Rosser Family and all who donated during our emergency fundraiser in March. The Lord bless you all for your help! It truly was heaven sent! 

Jehovah-Jireh....our God will provide!

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.
