How pleasant then to receive the photograph of her visiting one of our boys in hospital

Gillian has now been in Kenya for 2 weeks and she has truly jumped

into the deep end.

Usually after a short break of a couple of months between visits there is plenty to keep us busy when we arrive back at Kindfund. However with the 16 month Covid break there is a lot that could overwhelm on arrival.

Since landing Gillian has isolated for 8 days, taken a covid test and then been thrust into the middle of Kindfund activities from issues with Government Departments to preparing the July financing arrangements and much else besides.

How pleasant then to receive the photograph of her visiting one of our boys in hospital after he had an operation on his foot. I understand he can’t wait to be released to get back to school. Top of his class he doesn’t want to be missing anything.

The children – all 130 of them and more besides when we think of those who have left us but still need support – are our primary concern although the ‘other’ aspects of running three children’s homes can place huge demands on us and limit our time with them.

So with lots to do and decisions to be made we need to know the mind of God and Gillian needs wisdom to pace herself as she carries the load at the sharp end for the next few months.
In mid August she will be joined by Lea from Austria returning for her second visit. Please pray also for her as she makes arrangements and travels.

Pray for Gillian that she will have the mind of Christ

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 250 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.
