# 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
