Praise Reports from Around the World! 

Updated August 2018

Northern Kenya / Samburu / Turkana

– Thank God for providing property and a new church in Samburu country with the help of CRI.

– We thank Him for other construction projects completed on our land that are helping to bring people to Jesus and are providing for the poor.

– Praise Him for the funds raised to drill a well that will bring life, agriculture and unity to our community. (We have received the funds necessary to start Phase one of this project! $20,000! – Work will be complete in Sept. ’18) Phase two will require $20,000 more for solar power, pumps, pump house, water tanks and piping.

– We are now able to feed children in two villages twice a week and give them Bible studies to tell them about Jesus. This is good because many children go without food for many days here and their parents worship idols.
