The latest from the Bryce Homes for Widows and Children in Kenya. Supported solely by Understand the Times and Lighthouse Trails readers. We hope you will consider becoming part of the support for these 20+ Christian fatherless families (including the three overseeing pastors’ families) in Kenya where these families are being given support to live and be healthy and are being discipled in the things of the Lord through the teaching of the Word of God. For more information, slideshows, or to donate, visit www.missionsfortruth.com (the Lighthouse Trails missions website) and Understand the Times.
Most of the families now have new houses thanks to the donations from UTT and LT readers (along with new clothing and new cook stoves with chimneys); however, they have some vital needs still including outdoor latrines and wells. Most of the families have no indoor plumbing, and without outdoor latrines, health risks increase greatly. Also if we can build wells for each home, or most of the homes, home gardens and small livestock (chickens and goats) will become a possibility. All donations go through UTT (a non-profit organization) and are given directly and fully to the project in Kenya. We also have the Widows Baskets project by Lighthouse Trails. 12 widows are making hand-braided baskets – Lighthouse Trails buys them at a fair market price and sells them to LT readers. This is just the beginning of finding ways to help these families without fathers support themselves (in most of these homes, the fathers have died from AIDs or other diseases).
