Kenya March 2014
Report 1 March 2014 Kenya
From Roger Oakland
Understand the Times
I am writing this report as I am flying over northern Africa on my way to Nairobi Kenya. The month of March is the time for my annual visit to our Bryce Homes Program located in western Kenya. Little did I know when I visited this area some four years ago what would lie ahead. Initially beginning with five Homes, the program has grown. Fifteen more Homes have been added so that we now have twenty Homes and over 120 children.
The Kenya Bryce Homes Program has been a joint partnership with Understand The Times and Lighthouse Trails. While my initial trip was focused on the idea of working with Lighthouse Trails to establish a discipleship training center in the area, my attention was immediately drawn to the dire need of assisting widows and orphans. Lighthouse Trails shared this vision and together we reported in our Internet newsletters what we felt the Lord was leading us to do. Donors responded as we made some of the needs public, and we were able to provide immediate emergency assistance to several widows and their orphaned children who these Christian women were trying to care for.
