# Update on Water Storage at Wamba

the town supply which is turned on twice per week is continuing to top up the main storage so that in total we have been maintaining a reserve of 60,000 to 80,000 litres.

Since arriving in January, we have been running the electric pump weekly to pump water from our new 60,000 litre storage to the top of the site 30,000 litre storage from where it is distributed throughout the home at Wamba.

We are very thankful that the town supply which is turned on twice per week is continuing to top up the main storage so that in total we have been maintaining a reserve of 60,000 to 80,000 litres.
The materials for the construction of the roof have now been delivered in our pickup to Wamba and the welder and builder are working together to complete the task. When complete the tanks will be shielded from direct sunlight and the storage facility will be completely enclosed to protect from curious children and the occasional elephant which breaks into the site at night. The large roof will also be harnessed to collect water to the tanks
Again, thank you to all who have been praying for the water provision at Wamba. Currently we are sitting on 80,000 litres and with an expectation that we should see some rain by the end of March which will replenish the tanks. We will be monitoring the situation carefully to manage the resource.

# December 2017

Christmas day has passed and as we rush towards the New Year I would like to update you and give you some thoughts for prayer.

Pamela and Gillian have now been in Kenya since 24th November. During that short 5 week period they have had to deal with many challenges as one might expect in any organisation/family with 125 children and 50+ staff. They can become tired and at times frustrated. Beside the matters coming their way for decisions they are coping with temperatures over 30 degrees and eating a restricted diet. Please hold them in your prayer.

The couple I traveled to Mombasa to meet in September with a view to their employment, David and Agnes, visited Ngaremara in early December for a week with two of their three children to meet Pamela and Gillian and to see the work of Kindfund first hand. They engaged deeply with the children and staff at Ngaremara and more than a few tears were shed when the time came for them to leave. I am pleased to report that they will be joining the team in early January 2018 and will be based at Ngaremara. Please pray for them as they prepare to travel the 700kms from Mombasa to Ngaremara, as they sort out their affairs in Mombasa, and as they discover God’s plans for them in the work of Kindfund – they are a gifted couple who have spent 8 yrs in mission with YWAM and who we believe will bring a fresh impetus to the Kindfund family.

January is the start of the new school year with its challenges, hopes and disappointments. Please pray for all the children especially those who have reached a change point at the end of Primary and at the end of Secondary. Also remember the work of our own Hope Primary School, the headmistress, Shalline and staff as they prepare for the new term and not forgetting our feeder Nursery Schools at Ngaremara, Wamba and Ndikir.

We are also helping five of our teachers to gain professional qualifications through vacation study at colleges of further education and they welcome your prayerful support

God willing I will travel to Kenya in early January

Kindfund was established as a charity in 2004 to further the gospel of Jesus Christ and to help relieve poverty amongst some of the poorest tribes in northern Kenya, working with the pastoralist Turkana, Samburu and Rendille.

We currently use 5 tonnes of food and supplies per month, providing for 125 children in 4 homes and 400 children in nursery and primary education.

We have dug 7 wells and fitted 7 handpumps, bringing safe water to remote villages.

100% of gifts go to Kenya.
