We received a report [on November 18th] from Pastor Achilla in Kenya bringing us up to date with regard to progress with the Bryce Orphan Home Project. Pastor Nelson has moved with his entire family where he will be establishing Bryce Home One. Along with his wife and seven children of their own, they have seven additional adopted children they are looking after.
Understand The Times has rented a home in the _________ area for Pastor Nelson and his family. Understand The Times will be providing support for food, clothing, and education. He and his wife will help to administer the Bryce Orphan Home program with Pastor Achilla and be responsible for reporting to us.
We are presently in the process of putting together a board of directors made up of Kenyan pastors and headed by Pastor Achilla. In March of this year, I will be making another trip back to Kenya, along with my friend Byron Hardy from Canada, to meet Pastor Achilla and his pastoral team in order to discuss the Bryce Orphan Home project and set up a long-term Bible teaching program that will promote the teaching of biblical truth in these Last Days.
While I did not expect to go back to Kenya this soon, it became obvious that it was important to come along side the Kenyan pastors at this time to make sure the foundation we establish is sound and biblically based. Byron is the President of a Bible school and is well grounded in sound biblical doctrine and will bring important input and expertise with regard to the training of pastors to stand for the gospel according to the Scriptures.
As per our previous reports, a number of widows and orphans have already been helped through support provided for basic needs from Lighthouse Trails readers. These funds were sent recently and have been distributed by Pastor Achilla and his support staff, which have provided immediate relief for many. Understand The Times, through the support we have received for orphans and widows will now come along side and continue to maintain these homes as the Lord provides.
The purpose of these reports is to keep you informed of what we are doing to invest the support we have received in a wise manner and with accountability.
